Faucet Repair and Replacement in Edmonton

Are you going crazy listening to your dripping shower while you try to sleep? Or is your kitchen spray nozzle only coming out half of the holes or at an angle? Perhaps its time to have  Brian Plumbing and Heating come out and repair or replace those pesky old faucets. The option to repair or replace depends on a variety of factors, including what type of faucet, age, brand, availability of parts, and of course a client’s preference. As a rule, kitchen and basin faucets are simply replaced due to the fact that they are relatively inexpensive and accessible to swap out without damage to the sinks they are attached to. A shower faucet, however, is usually repaired, if possible, due to the fact that in order to change the valve, there will be damage to either the tub wall, or if accessible, the back of the shower faucet wall.

Sump Pump Repair in Edmonton

Sump pumps are one of the most important plumbing systems in your home or business and yet are one of the most overlooked. Installed in the lowest area of your house, typically in your basement, a sump pump collects and then pumps water from under the ground, pumping it away from your house to avoid water issues in your basement. 

Who needs a sump pump?

Most new homes today with a basement have a sump pump. They were not as common in older neighbourhoods, where ground water was drained into the buildings main sewer. Sump pumps are often added to these older homes when ground water entering the basement becomes an issue, or simply when renovating the home.

How do I choose a sump pump?

 Brian Plumbing and Heating recommends using only high quality sump pumps along with a backup sump pump and alarm system. There are several types of backup sump pumps available, including battery powered and water powered units, ideal for power outages. 

Alarms are a great idea and can be as simple as a water sensor near the sump pit activating an alarm in the house to ones that are tied into your home security system alerting you to imminent flooding via your smart phone.

It is important to remember that sump pumps should be tested yearly to ensure it is functioning properly. Should you experience a malfunctioning sump pump, please contact us.

Frost-Free hose bib

Frost-Free Hose Bib Repair in Edmonton

Hose Bibs go by several names; outdoor tap, hose valve, hydrant, that “hose-valve-thingymagig”, whatever you want to call it, a hose bib will on occasion require maintenance or replacement. 

Living in Edmonton means very cold winters with temperatures getting as low as -40°C. These low temperatures mean outside hose bibs may be damaged if not properly installed or prepared for winter. 

Always remember to disconnect your hose and any attachements from your hose bib in the fall to prevent freeze up and the splitting of the water supply line.

If your having trouble with your hose bib, please call  Brian Plumbing and Heating  at (780) 249-1496 for more information and to arrange an in-home consultation.

Hot Water Tank Repair in Edmonton

Hot water tanks are an essential piece of plumbing equipment, and when they malfunction, it can wreak havoc and cause damage in your home. When you are having hot water tank issues, bring in the experts,  Brian Plumbing and Heating. We have decades of experience servicing and if necessary, replacing the many types and models of hot water tanks. The decision to repair or replace a hot water tank is generally determined by a variety of factors, including the age of the tank, the nature of the repair, availability of parts and naturally the cost. Let’s look at some of these factors in a little more detail.

Age

As a general rule, a person does not want to invest in a expensive repair on a tank that is older than 10 years, as the tank is nearing the end of it’s life span. However, a relatively inexpensive fix, such as a leaking drain valve would make sense to repair.

Nature of the repair

Should a hot water tank start leaking from the actual shell of the tank, it is shot beyond repair. Call  Brian Plumbing and Heating for a fast, reasonably priced replacement.

Availability of parts

There are times when parts are unavailable due to supply chain issues, or simply the products are no longer manufactured. Obviously, if parts are no longer manufactured, the decision would be to replace. Supply chain issues create their own frustrations and dilemma for the client.

Tankless Hot Water Repair

Tankless Hot Water Repair in Edmonton

Tankless hot water heaters, or sometimes called ‘on demand water heaters’ are a great modern-day substitute for the traditional hot water tank that many of us grew up with. Instead of keeping a large vessel of water hot all the time, they simply heat the water when required, therefore being more efficient in regards to gas consumption. Another big advantage to a tankless hot water heater is that you never have to worry about running out of hot water. Tankless hot water heaters do however require more maintenance than a traditional hot water tank, such as filter cleaning, descaling, and are subject to vent freezing and clogging in the winter. If you’re having trouble with your tankless hot water heater, or looking to have the recommended annual maintenance done, feel free to contact Brian Plumbing and Heating for fast, reasonably priced service.
