Home repair plumbing is an important topic for any homeowner and finding a good certified plumber should be a priority. A good plumber can fix existing problems in your home plumbing, as well as help you take steps to ensure that other plumbing problems do not occur in the future.

Choosing the wrong plumber can have a number of negative consequences. You may have problems with your plumber overcharging you or just plain not finishing the job. Additionally, you may have problems with the quality of the work. Since there are so many things that can go wrong, it is essential to choose your plumber very carefully.

What Plumbers Do

If you own a home or plan to build your own home, you will most likely need to hire a plumber for home repair plumbing tasks, such as:

  • Camera Inspection - If you have a blockage in your pipes, plumbers can also do a sewer pipe camera inspection where they put a camera in your sewage pipes to determine where the problem is and what they need to do about it.
  • Clear Clogs - If you have a clogged sewer and plugged drain, you might need a plumber to help fix the problem.
  • Water Pipes - Plumbers are experts on repairing and fitting water pipes.
  • Waste Disposal - If you need to fix or set up waste disposal, drainage or water systems in your home, you would also need to call a plumber.
  • Installation and Maintenance - Plumbers handle installation and maintenance for all of your toilets, faucets, sinks and taps.
  • Rough In Plumbing - If you are building your own home, you will need a plumbing rough in, which is where you install bathtubs, water lines and sewer lines. Rough in plumbing is very tricky to do without the help of an experienced plumber.
  • Repair Fixtures - In addition to installing fixtures and pipes in a new home, a good plumber can also help repair any pipe or fixture related issues.

Taras from High Park:
"We have a tenant in our basement appartment and have previously done extensive work with other drain companies. I called one of the companies up and they wanted too much for just coming out and inspecting. I remembered Dmitry because he did a few other plumbing jobs for me very well. I was pleased to hear that he also does camera inspections. Dmitry removed the toilet and pulled out a mass of roots the size of a 20 pound salmon! Dmitry did the camera inspection which revealed that the pipes were absolutely clean and clear of all roots. So where did the roots come from?..."
