    Common Home Plumbing System Issues

    There are some issues in plumbing systems that are more common than others. One frequent plumbing issue is dripping faucets. This is when your faucet continues to drip once you have turned it off. This plumbing problem is so standard that it would be difficult to find someone who has not faced it. Dripping faucets may be annoying, but they are also a waste of water. When a faucet is left dripping, it can cost you money by increasing your water bill.

    Another plumbing issue is running toilets. This occurs when your toilet continues running after you have flushed. This may not seem like a big problem, but a running toilet can lead to the loss of around 200 gallons of water each day. Wasting water will cost you unnecessary money for a problem that is easy to fix. Low water pressure is also a common plumbing problem. Often an issue in older homes, this is when your water trickles instead of gushing. Having low water pressure can make many regular things like showering and washing your hands inconvenient. Drain Pro Plumbing has the best plumbers to help fix your common plumbing concerns in Victoria.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I prevent my pipes from freezing?2021-05-10T18:51:24+00:00

    Here in Victoria and Lower Vancouver Island, the weather generally doesn’t get to the point where frozen pipes are a major concern. It’s the warmest city in Canada, after all! But sometimes winter takes its toll, in the form of snowfall and/or freezing temperatures.


    Does that leave your pipes vulnerable? The answer depends on the construction of your home. In particular, if you have a water heater in an external portion or exterior segment of your home, and an extended cold snap or power outage were to occur, this could leave your pipes vulnerable. Power outages in general can be problematic.


    To find out whether your home is built solid for the winter or remains vulnerable to pipes freezing, contact Drain Pro for an inspection of your pipes and plumbing.

    What’s the best way to lower the chance of pipes clogging?2021-05-10T18:50:40+00:00

    The best way to prevent clogged pipes and drain blocks is to be aware of what is going down your drains.


    Use filters on shower and tub drains to catch hair and other objects. Similarly, sinks can have a trap installed to catch debris. Do not put grease, oil or any foreign objects down the drain. Only toilet paper should go into the toilet. Use compost bins, recycling and garbage to your advantage to keep anything and everything from going down the pipes. Proactive measures are the best way to keep your pipes clear and free of blocks and clogs. If you are experiencing slow drainage, this could be a sign of a clogged pipe.

    How often should I be getting my plumbing system checked?2021-05-10T18:49:47+00:00

    Drain Pro recommends that your home’s plumbing system should be inspected by a professional at least once every 2 years. This regular check-up will allow our professional plumbers to spot any potential problems and get ahead of them before they become a bigger issue. They can also assess whether it is time for them to be professionally cleaned. Household drain systems should be professionally cleaned every few years to make sure they are functioning as efficiently as possible. This is a great way to prevent any potential damage or clogging from build-up of residue in your plumbing system.
