Cleaning drains and pipes

Excellent service. Very courteous and professional.
Paul came to clean our house drains and sewer pipe (hydro jetting) and he checked his work thoroughly using a camera. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and answered all my questions. I will be happy to recommend this company to anyone.

sewer back up and clogged pipes

Alex and Paul are great! Very efficient, friendly and professional. From a major job of locating and fixing a broken pipe under a concrete foundation to most recently diagnosing and fixing a clogged pipe caused by roots, these guys at Red Seal are stellar. I wouldn't hesitate to call again or recommend them for your job - big or small.

Bathroom faucet installation, hot/cold water line and shut off valve replacement

I was getting ready for work when I realized my bathroom sink faucet was running and couldn't shut off. It was all old and worn out like everything else in my house.

Even with the main line turned off, a good amount of water was still continuously running through my crapped out faucet. I was pretty stressed since this wasn't something I could put on hold and the only DIY skills I have are with duct tape and crazy glue.

Luckily, google brought me to Red Seal. After giving them a call, Alex was at my door in just about an hour. He installed new water shut off valves, water lines and faucet which now works like a charm.

I'm very greatful Alex and Red Seal were there when I needed them. With the crappy old house I'm living in, I'm glad I have someone I can count on for future repairs and installation.

Repairing outdoor garage burst pipe

Red seal employee readily found the piece of pipe that burst with the least amount of damage to the drywall. He replaced the burst pipe and installed a frost free faucet which included a safety shutoff valve. Upon testing everything to his satisfaction he immediately cleaned the entire area. Very efficient, courteous and friendly. I would have no problem recommending this company to my friends. Thank you Red Seal plumbing.

Grease and garburators are two very common causes. Think before you put it down the sink. Drain Tile Damage: Q. How often should drain tiles be cleaned out? A. Drain tiles should be cleaned out ever 1-2 years depending on the type and age of the pipes. Q. What is drain tile made from? A. Clay tile of PVC. Flooded Basements: Q. What causes a flooded basement? A. Cracked foundations or plugged drain tile are common causes; as well burst pipes can cause serious damage. Garburators: Q. What can’t I put down a garburator? A. Your garburator is meant to shred food waste into pieces small enough—generally less than 2 mm (0.079 in)—to pass through plumbing. You should never place chicken skins, onion skins, potato peels, bones, egg shells or any other items that cannot be shred. Q. How do I repair my garburator? A. If your garburator isn’t working properly, it could be either a plumbing issue, and electrical issue or an issue with the appliance at all. If it isn’t working or making a sound, try pushing the red reset button on the bottom of the disposal unit and check the breaker. If it hums, but doesn’t turn, try using a broom handle to turn the cutting wheel inside the drain. If neither of these quick fixes work, you need to contact a plumber and consider replacing the unit. Sewer Lines: Q. How often should sewer lines be cleaned out? A. Depending on their age, sewer lines should be inspected annually using a camera. In addition, if they have backed up in the past, they should be cleaned out every 1-2 years. Sinks: Q. What should I do if my drain is clogged? A. While some would think that a chemical drain cleaner is a good first step, they are very toxic in nature which can have a serious negative effect on your piping over time. Rather than using these toxic, pipe-deteriorating chemicals, try a few maintenance products that contain natural bacteria and enzymes. These do a great job limiting drain sludge and grease from building up. If these don’t work, contact your local plumber to have them professionally snaked. Sump Pumps: Q. How often should a sump pump be replaced? A. While there is no hard and fast rule for how often you should replace a sump pump as the need varies depending on how often the pump operators. Test your system regularly to make sure its fully operational by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit and ensuring it kicks on, removes the water and shuts itself off. We’ve found that planning on replacing once every 10 years or so is a good practice, but again, regular testing will best advise you. Toilets: Q. What causes toilet back-ups? A. With regular usage, a toilet sometimes becomes clogged by toilet tissue and waste matter that has collected in the sewer drain pipe. When this blockage is coupled with the tampons, q-tips, hair, grease, and other debris, the proper air flow through the line causes a gurgling sound. This should be addressed immediately through the use of a drain snake. Q. How do you fix a running toilet? A. The most common cause of a continuously running toilet tank is the flapper, so start by replacing it. The part is inexpensive and it’s easy to replace (just turn off the water, drain the tank and replace the bad flapper). If it’s still running, it’s probably that the chain is too long and is getting caught under the flapper. Try removing a few links and reattaching. Q. What do I do if my toilet is leaking? A. There are actually 2 common causes of toilet leaks, the tank ball at the bottom of the tank or an improperly adjusted or broken fill valve. With the tank ball, the leak will occur around the seat on which the ball sits and drain into the bowl. With the fill valve, if the float is set too high or the shutoff doesn’t close, water will continue to overflow into the overflow tube. While both of these issues can be fixed by a homeowner, it is sometimes best to just have an expert check your entire system to eliminate any associated issues that have yet to surface.
