Imagine turning on the water and stepping into a warm or hot shower all in just a few seconds. That’s what master plumber Mike of Mr. Mike’s Plumbing in Calgary promises his business can offer in plumbing upgrades to your home. Whether it is installing “comfort valves” that create hot showers in seconds or upgrading to high-performance toilets that sit higher, clog less, and flush quieter, Mr. Mike’s Plumbing, Heating & Air can make such plumbing upgrades to any home. His plumbing business can also install a whole-house filter system to upgrade water quality for improved water taste while helping to keep shower walls cleaner and prolonging the life of a water heater.
“We see it as an investment in your home,” Mike said about plumbing upgrades. Owned by Mike, for more than a five years, Mr. Mike’s Plumbing, Heating & Air installs and repairs all types of plumbing for residential commercial establishments. A state-certified master plumber, Mike offers a general checklist to homeowners for springtime maintenance. “Spring is here and it’s the perfect time to do an inspection of your basic plumbing system,” he said. “Those should include draining and flushing water heater, as well as visually inspecting the connections and checking for corrosion.”
Other areas of the home to inspect, he said, include washing machine hoses (for wear and possible replacement); and areas underneath cabinets (to look for minor leaks and major ones). “And, it’s also a good idea to check water pressure and proper drainage throughout the home,” he said. The top reasons people call a plumber include needing toilet repair or replacement, water heater repair or replacement, faucet replacement, hose bib (outdoor faucet) repair and frozen pipe repair.
“We are family owned and operated and have ’Calgary’s friendliest master plumber,” said Mike, owner and office manager. “We offer residential and commercial repair, replacement, and remodel plumbing work,” Mike said. The business specializes in sewer repair and replacement. “Our local clients, anyone within seven miles of Calgary, get a free visit,” he said. “We provide as many options as possible to meet their plumbing needs. And, we make sure the client is happy and satisfied with our products, workmanship, and customer-service skills by making follow-up calls.”
Mike has nearly 10 years of experience as a plumber. “I love the art of plumbing. Every situation is unique and requires my ability to assess the problem and provide the solution,” he said. “To have a customer who has had a problem (in a home) for months or sometimes even years, and be able to solve that issue for them is a good feeling.” A common service call involves a toilet filling unexpectedly with water. Mike said it’s caused by worn out flush or fill valves. “Sometimes we are able to rebuild the toilet to correct this issue. However, we will recommend, if the toilet is outdated, upgrading to a high-performance, comfort-height, water-saving toilet,” he said. “Modern toilets are designed better and operate more efficiently.”
