Is the water from your shower slowly reaching your ankles? Are you hitting plumbing pipes with tools so the water in your sink can drain properly? Are you praying that your toilet doesn’t overflow when you flush? If the answer is yes, Lone Star Plumbing and Heating in Calgary believes you have clogs in your bathroom system. Home renovation shows have made bathroom fixes look simple and easy. It may seem that way, until you realize you don’t have the proper tools or knowledge to solve plumbing problems. If you’re learning to live with clogs or you’re ready to drop a Molotov cocktail down the toilet, stop the madness and call the experts at Lone Star Plumbing and Heating.

The Toilet
Overflowing toilets: they can be the granddaddy of plumbing fiascos in Calgary homes. Trust us, you’ll know if your toilet is clogged. Lone Star Plumbing and Heating has come to the rescue for many Calgarians who have the following issues with their toilet:

  • Overflows
  • Leaks
  • Broken parts
  • Improper flushing

If you’re unraveling a coat hanger in hopes of unclogging the siphon jet, you’re not alone. This method has been passed on from generation to generation. Unfortunately, it is usually a temporary fix and you end up scratching your toilet bowl. Mineral deposits often can clog the siphon jet and are difficult to remove.

A clog somewhere in the toilet line usually causes overflowing. If a plunger fails at unclogging your toilet, you’ve reached a point where you need the services of a professional. Leaking toilets may require new seals, tightening of bolts or might need fixtures to be replaced. If you’ve replaced parts and are still encountering problems with your toilet, your toilet may have reached the end of its lifespan and it’s probably time for a new one.

Shower, Bathtub and Sink Drains
Water rising to your ankles in the shower, bathroom floods, odours, slow drainage and accumulated pools of water in your sink are all signs of clogs. Lone Star Plumbing and Heating recommends trying to remedy these problems with plungers, removing drain screens and using a drain cleaner. If you find that these methods only work temporarily and clogs return, then you most likely have a large clog deep in your plumbing line. Showerheads, drains and plumbing pipes over time can become shot from natural wear and tear, and therefore need replacing.

Don’t learn to live with plumbing problems or rely on temporary fixes. Call our expert team at Lone Star Plumbing and Heating. We will solve all your plumbing problems and have you back to enjoying your showers and eliminate your fear of flushing the toilet.
