Things are moving along well at our new office. Plumbing is in and there is still some electrical left to go. Thanks to CDG Electrical for all their help with our electrical needs. Thanks also to the amazing plumbers who got things right the first time – oh wait, that was us. 🙂
Most of us have several taps and shutoffs in our home and businesses. There is one tap however, that is the most important and we should all know exactly where it is.

We had a great time yesterday at Bingeman’s in Kitchener for Desco’s annual Parade of Products show. Very interesting products we’ll be looking at to better serve our customers. Excited to see new things from Rehau, Fernco, and The Water Closet to name a few.
This video was from our latest dig up in Kitchener, Ontario. An aging galvanized water main was leeching water into the soil. How did we know? Experience!
We had reroute the water main to the other side of the house and also some re-piping inside required. This job went extremely well and the client was more than happy with the results.
Watch as we dig up and replace a sewer main from a condo complex in Guelph, Ontario. Here we see that aging transite piping has become partially collapsed and witness a 60-year old repair that eventually failed over time.
Free Question Friday comes from one of our customers who has a problem new toilet that keeps clogging. Listen in to see what we think the issue could be.
Please Remember: Always get professional advice from a licensed plumber before attempting any of your own plumbing work. It’s important to follow regulations for safety purposes and to avoid further repair.
This week’s blog is dedicated to our install of a radiant heating system by Rehau. If you’ve never had in-floor heating, you’ll be surprised how amazing it is. The are relatively easy to install, cost-efficient and keep you toasty warm (feet-to-follicles) during those cold winter days.
