If you have a problem toilet that always seems to clog, run (leak), lack flushing power or if you need any sort of toilet repair or replacement, our licensed plumbing specialists can solve the problem.

Clogs
Is there a more helpless feeling than when a toilet won’t flush? Water rises in the bowl and begins spilling onto the floor as panic sets in. If a toilet requires plunging on a regular basis, there is probably an obstruction in the trap or further down the drainpipe. It may even be a symptom of a bigger problem farther down the sewer line. We’re experts at dealing with clogged toilets.

Running toilets
If you hear water running in your toilet tank for extended periods after a flush, then your toilet is leaking. It is dumping water down the overflow tube and wasting up to 757 Litres of water daily. The problem may be a corroded overflow pipe or flush valve assembly. Sometimes the culprit is a worn out flapper valve. Stop jiggling the handle and call us today!

How old and inefficient is your toilet?
Most older toilets used 13 liters per flush (lpf). Newer low-flow toilets use only 6 lpf and the newest low-flow designs provide the same amount of flushing power as old 13 litre models. We can install an efficient new toilet that will help you conserve water. There are many new environmentally-friendly toilet designs that go even further to save water. Some designs have a dual flushing system which uses only 3.5 liters to flush liquid waste but all 6 liters to flush solid waste. You are welcome to purchase a toilet from the store of your choice then seek our plumbing services to have it installed. Or we can provide you with options before delivering and installing the toilet you want.

Fix Clogged Drains | Yaletown Plumbing

Whenever a fixture is used, some of the water emanating from it flows through the trap into the drainpipe, but a sufficient amount of water stays within the trap, and in fact forms a seal which prevents sewer gases and objectionable odors from permeating your home. The latter in fact includes three components drain, waste and vent and is thus often referred to as the DWV system.
