Dealing with Emergency Plumbing Repairs During the Christmas Holidays

The Christmas holidays should be an enjoyable time to share with friends and family, but sometimes – accidents happen. And when it comes to plumbing emergencies in Surrey or throughout the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver – DMC Plumbing is here to help!

Here are some of the most common plumbing emergencies and how you can try to handle them on your own, or call us at 604-908-9998 for our 24-hour emergency service. Our Licensed Residential and Commercial Plumbers can answer all of your questions and servicing needs, and provide prompt service to repair your concerns.

Blocked Drains

A blocked drain can have your water backing up quickly, and is usually caused from hair and debris piling up somewhere within the drain. In most cases, this can be fixed with a store-bought drain cleaner. Follow the directions, and this concern should be solved fairly quickly.

Overflowing Toilets

An overflowing toilet is never pleasant, and the only way to immediately stop the flow is by turning off the water behind the toilet. After that, it might cause a bit of a mess to plunge your toilet, but that is the next step to clearing the blockage. After that, if you still can’t get your toilet unclogged, call us!

Burst Water Pipes

Thankfully our winters are pretty mild here in the Lower Mainland, so freezing and bursting pipes are not a common occurrence. If you do experience a burst pipe, turn off your home’s main water supply, then turn on all your faucets so the remaining water in the pipes is released.

Water Heater Disruptions

A broken water heater during the chilly months is not a fun thing to wake up to, and this is a plumbing emergency that a professional would need to be called in for.

DMC Plumbing is here to help with any water heater concerns, or other emergency plumbing needs in Vancouver and the surrounding communities.

Professional Maintenance Can Save You Money

Turn Your Home Into an Energy Efficient Household & Save Money

Having an energy efficient home isn’t only good for the planet – it’s also great for your pocketbook! Which is why we want to share with you how you can ‘Turn Your Home Into an Energy Efficient Household & Save Money’.

Maintain Your Hot Water Tank

Did you know hot water tanks are meant to be maintained? Having your hot water tank inspected annually can uncover its efficiency levels, while also ensuring it isn’t about to ‘kick the bucket’ – so to speak. An emergency hot water tank replacement or repair can add to your living costs in unexpected ways, so allow DMC Plumbing to come take a look at your hot water tank, inspecting it for concerns and keeping your costs consistent – or even offering you tips on how you can improve them!

Replace Your Hot Water Tank

Did you also know that homeowners spend around one third of their maintenance costs on heating their water? It’s true. And if your home has a hot water tank that is more than a decade old, it will be running at half its capacity and costing you twice as much to heat up, while also running the risk of house damage if your water tank bursts – which happens for a variety of reasons, and is also something we can help you guard against. Or, alternately, we can suggest a tankless water heater that could work for your home also – and may be eligible for a Fortis BC rebate!

Installing a gas line means you have natural gas available to you when and where you need it. Whether for cooking outside on your BBQ, or upgrading your indoor appliances to gas – this is also a great long-term money saving solutions, and an added convenience for your lifestyle too!
