Plumbing RepairPlumbing issues can impact important rooms in a home like the bathroom and kitchen. The experienced plumbers at Tap-Roots are on call around the clock for plumbing repair emergencies. Here are some common types of plumbing problems.

Bathroom Issues

Toilets can be a frequent reason plumbing repair is necessary. They can get clogged with too much debris or if there is excessive use. Toilets should not be used as garbage cans. Anything that can be thrown in the garbage should be put there rather than in a toilet. It can be a fun for toddlers to throw things in the toilet, so keep an eye on them in the bathroom. Toilet plungers and snakes can help unclog backed up toilets. Sinks and drains can also get clogged. Hair can stop them up and prevent them from working properly.

Kitchen Issues

It is very inconvenient if your kitchen sink or dishwasher is not functioning properly. If one of them is not working well, it may impact the ability of other appliances to operate effectively. Trying to put too much food in a garbage disposal can easily stop it up. Certain items like meat scraps may require too much effort for a garbage disposal to reduce to a small enough size. Grease and fat that is poured down the sink can congeal and clog the plumbing. Richmond, BC plumbers are experts at plumbing repair.

Don’t let plumbing issues in the kitchen or bathroom dampen your day. Contact the Tap-Roots plumbing professionals at 604-222-1282 for 24/7 emergency plumbing repair service.
