The convenient plumbing we enjoy has become a very complex system that serves our needs. Because of its complexity, we need the services of highly trained and licensed Mississauga plumbers to provide assistance during installation, repair, and maintenance. Though some minor repairs, such as the replacement of valves, or attending to minor toilet and drain blockages can be done by most homeowners, almost every other type of installation, repair and maintenance activity have to be done by licensed plumbers.
Over the years the range of services offered by the best Mississauga plumbers has grown to include:
a) Minor repair and troubleshooting such as drain unclogging, unblocking clogged toilets and sinks. Simple as these trouble calls may seem, it sometimes takes specialized equipment and the skills of trained plumbers to sort them out.
b) Installation of new pipe systems or addition of pipe sections. Licensed plumbers are trained to follow detailed plumbing plans and execute installation in accordance with all local and national codes and regulations.
c) Installation of space heating systems, garbage disposal equipment, water heaters, air conditioners, and gas piping.
d) Pinhole repairs through the use of food grade epoxy coating of pipe interior surfaces. The method is very effective not only in eliminating present pinhole leaks, further leaks are prevented as it covers the entire pipe interiors. The repair technique also benefits from being seamless and without any joints. Pipe lining contractors favor this repair method .
e) Removal of blockages on drain pipes and installation of cured in place pipe (CIPP) liners. This repair technique uses a cutting tool to remove blocks. After blockages are removed, the interior of the drain pipe is thoroughly cleaned and a pipe liner is installed. A bladder is inflated to help the liner adhere to the pipe internal surfaces until it is cured. This is another technique preferred by trenchless pipe lining contractors.
f) Replacement of water supply main piping using the burst pipe method. This non-invasive pipe replacement technique involves opening two small trenches at either end of the pipe section to be replaced. An expansion head connected to a winch then pulls the old pipe out while simultaneously pulling the new pipe section in. This results in significant cost savings as there is no need to dig out the old pipe. The Plumber’s Residential Council Ontario have plumbing contractors who are experts in the use of this pipe replacement method.
g) Cleaning of sections of drain pipe clogged by accumulated scum and debris. The most effective cleaning method used by plumbing contractors is by high pressure water jet. The high pressure water and the heat it generates combine to remove accumulated scum and dirt. When that is still not enough, degreasing agents are added to the pressurized water.
As plumbing failures happen at any time, many plumbing contractors now offer 24/7 emergency plumbing repair service. This helps homeowners reduce damage to other portions of the home while waiting for plumbers to arrive.
