Looking at a basement floor drain can be quite humbling, as you notice a nice "black ring" encompassing the general area or "standing water" on the floor. You always ask yourself, is it gone? Should I still be worried? The answer is "YES".

During cold weather, pipes in your walls, attic or under your floor can freeze. Frozen pipes can crack or burst because as water freezes, it expands. With enough expansion, pipes will develop cracks. The cracks may not be visible but they will leak nonetheless when the ice melts. If a frozen section of pipe is caught in time, there may be no damage; but it must be thawed before any more freezing occurs.

Plumbing has come a long way since it inception in the early 1500's. When we wake up in the morning we take for granted that our clean water will be there for coffee, shaving and shower, and the majority of the time it is there. It's only when we experience plumbing problems that we realize how much we value the amenity. And why shouldn't we? Modern indoor plumbing has not only provided us with the necessity of instant drinking water, clean kitchens and bodies, and a flourishing garden, but also with various luxuries like swimming pools,Jacuzzis and steam showers.

Fortunately, plumbing emergencies don't happen often, but when they do, it often raises your stress level very quickly. Be sure to know where the main shut-off valve is in your home, in the event that a plumbing leak arises. Individual fixtures like toilets, sinks and dishwashers often have their own shut-off valve to enable you to shut off water to that appliance without limiting water the rest of the house.

You may think of yourself as a bit of a handyman, but when it comes to plumbing, if you don't understand the key concepts of the building code such as venting, and draining flow, you may want to leave your plumbing renovations and repairs to a licensed professional. Other than a fire, nothing can damage your home and its contents faster than a flood or a major leak. Even a small leak left on its own can quickly grow into several thousands of dollars in damage. A leak can also create long term mould problems, which can be very difficult to find without tearing the walls or carpet of your home apart. If you want your plumbing renovation or repair done right and hassle-free the first time, we would be happy to offer you a quick and free estimate to help you and your family have your peace of mind back, and the home you have always wanted.
At DrainCom, every customer’s individual needs are important. Our focus of providing quality plumbing service and products combined with honesty and a friendly attitude, has made DrainCom the first choice - and the best choice - of residential and commercial clients alike.

Plumbing tips (please, read it before calling us)

Low Water pressure.
If you experience a low pressure in the water system please check this first before you call the plumbing company:
  • Go to the basement where the water pipe enters the house and make sure the shut off valve is fully open...
  • Open all the taps and faucets one by one to make sure that all of them have a low water pressure (if pressure drops when for example laundry is running please run it and check fixtures )
    The reason: the problem can be just a obstruction in one of the faucets or water pipe branches and can be much easily fixed.
  • Check the size of the pipe that enters the house (should be 3/4 inches or greater).
  • Please check the material that this pipe is made of (should be copper or plastic pipe) if it is maid of led or rusted metal pipe there are high chances that it does have settlements inside decreasing the size of the pipe and lower the water pressure.
  • Go outside and check the front yard to make sure no strangely wet areas or depression in the ground that may show that the water pipe is broken.
  • Ask your neiboroughs if they experience the same problem.
  • Call city and request a water test, find out if there any city side water pipe replacements schejuallad for your area.

Leak threw the sealing
If you have a leak threw the sealing:
  • Sometimes a running toilet upstairs may cause the problem. Water running all the time make pipe behind the wall or ceiling very cold and sweat.
  • Please check the toilet itself if it is stays firm and not moving it may cause leak threw the base seal.
  • Check that there are no holes or broken seal around a bathtub or shower
  • Shut main water valve and monitor if the leak has stopped.
