Toilet installation and repair in Calgary
Toilet installation in Calgary can be a complicated, lengthy process and many homeowners are mistaken in thinking that they can set up a toilet by themselves. Toilet repair is also a tricky procedure that requires intricate plumbing work that only a professional can accomplish.
The most used yet most neglected item in any bathroom is the toilet. Most consumers pay no attention to the toilet until it starts to cause problems. When it clogs, leaks, or runs continuously, you should call us immediately. Our plumbers are experts in providing solutions to every bathroom-related problem in your home.
The toilets before 1980 used too much water when flushing. Almost double the amount of what we use today. Because of the “go green” campaigns and the expensive water bills we have now, it’s not a surprise why a modern toilet and a professional contractor can solve not just one but many household problems.
Old toilet? Old plumbing? Our plumbers will test all the valves and pipes for any potential problems that may come after installing a new toilet. We will maximize the entire system to help you conserve water and save money. We will install valves and pipes that are engineered to maintain the water flow toward the toilet and the waste outside the bathroom.
The next step for toilet installation includes setting up the water tank and the toilet bowl – the basics of a standard toilet. All the plumber needs to do in this process is to make sure that the fixtures, pipes and valves are closely fit together to avoid toilet leaks in the bathroom. Added to that, it would be upsetting if your new toilet does not flush properly, so, we check that before installing.
Lastly, our experts will check your new model for optimal efficiency. They will make sure that the new toilet bowl is not broken due to the installation procedures and is flushing appropriately so that it will not bring you a clogged mess or a dirty overflow. The experts at Mr. Mike’s Plumbing will guarantee that you will take pleasure in your new economical yet modern toilet.
When a New Toilet is the Right Answer
A lot of consumers think that a toilet replacement would mean excessive costs. Unfortunately, home improvements like this must not be left unaddressed. We encourage you to get in touch with us and schedule a visit by our specialists.
- 1. The bad flush
After functioning for years, even decades, an aged toilet naturally ceases from flushing correctly. The same is true for low-quality toilet models that flush poorly. Of course, bad flushing can head to toilet and pipe clogs.
Multiple flushes can be maddening, everyday plunger use can be infuriating, and occasional toilet spills can spell bad mood. All of these can be indicators that a new toilet should be installed.
- 2. Lots of water, lots of the time
Current toilet models used today consumes less water than those older toilets used before 1980. The government then was in control of the amount of water that should be used. It was attainable because the progression in plumbing technology made it possible. It was regulated before 1980 that toilets use 7 gallons of water per flush.
But then, after 1980, the government required that toilets use half of that volume per flush – 3.5 gallons. And now, high quality toilet models have been regulated to reduce that half to an almost another half per flush – 1.6 gallons. Nowadays, our expensive economy encourages us to get “greener” by conserving water. This is great especially when we consider our budget also.
- 3. Keeping up with modern design
Colored toilets range from powder blue to baby pink. They signify an out-dated bathroom and must go if you’re interested in having a modern bathroom. Most toilets that may have been installed about half a century ago are unappealing, wasteful, and ugly. You do not need to keep obsolete items in your bathroom.
