5 Secrets No Other Kelowna Plumber Will Share (but we will…)

We believe the best way to build trust is by providing fast, reliable, honest service as a Kelowna plumbing contractor. As part of that service, we believe educating consumers about the common sources of emergency plumbing repairs and sharing ways to avoid them is part of the job.

There are at least five secrets no other Kelowna plumber will share, but we’re happy to do so because providing the best value for our customers, current or prospective, is the key to our success.

Replace Rubber Washing Machine Hoses

Washing machines come stock with rubber hoses to attach to the water source. Those hoses leak and crack at an alarming rate, and washing machine leaks are one of the most common causes of an emergency plumbing repair. Replace those rubber hoses with stainless steel, and your chances of a wet basement are significantly reduced.

Running Toilets are An Easy Fix

If you find yourself jiggling the toilet handle to get it to stop running several times a day, the flap valve needs to be replaced. Of course, you can call a plumber to take care of this repair for you, but you should know that the replacement parts only cost a couple of dollars, and it’s an easy fix.

Liquid Drain Cleaners are Corrosive

A skeletal hand image on the side of a bottle indicates that the material therein is corrosive, meaning that it can cause a chemical burn if it touches your skin. But your hands and eyes aren’t the only things liquid drain cleaners will burn! These products can damage pipes and cause a greater problem than the original clog. Instead, invest in an auger that will help clear plumbing clogs for years to come.

Call a Kelowna Plumber for Advice

Sometimes, a call to your local Kelowna plumber is all it will take to diagnose the source of your plumbing repair issue. If we can save you some time and money by answering a quick question over the phone, at Rite Tech plumbing we’re happy to do so!

Kelowna Plumbers at Rite Tech are Professionals

If you need a shower curtain rod hung or a faucet washer replaced, by all means, feel free to contact a handyman from the Yellow Pages. However, for more complex plumbing repairs, know that the process to become a licensed plumber is a lengthy one. If you get a quote for a plumbing repair job that seems too good to be true, it may be because you’re not working with a licensed plumber. Don’t be afraid to ask!
