Tips for Prevenative Drain Care


No plumbing system is perfect. Water heaters, pipes, and faucets fail all the time. However, with the right preparation, you can set yourself up for success! Keep in mind these do’s and don’ts so your system can last as long as possible.

The Don’ts

Unfortunately, your pipes can’t handle everything under the sun. Keep in mind these “don’ts” so you can avoid causing harm to your plumbing system, and start off on the right foot! You control what you put down your drains!


Toxic Drain Cleaners

Easy fixes are appealing to everyone. On the surface, it might seem that a commercial drain cleaner can clear a clog quickly, effectively, and conveniently, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They can actually harm your pipes, damage the environment, and pose a risk to you and your family’s health.


They Will Damage Your Pipes!

Drain cleaners utilize powerful caustic chemical reactions. They lack precision, as they burn through anything and everything they touch. Even modern PVC piping will warp and melt when introduced to commercial drain cleaners. Older metal pipes fair even worse with these solutions. Although you may indeed clear your clog, you probably caused expensive damage to your plumbing in the process.


They Harm Our Shared Environment!

Everything that goes down your pipes ends up in the sewage system. Your waste, toilet paper, and water are all compatible with the sewage treatment plant; however, their technology is not able to separate or process harsh chemicals. That’s why we have special protocols in place for the disposal of hazardous waste. If you put chemical cleaners down your drain, it will end up in the water supply.


They’re Toxic!

As reported by US Poison Control, harsh cleaning chemicals poison over 100,000 children, under the age of six, every year. And that’s just in the U.S.! If you are in possession of any harsh cleaning chemicals, make sure they are stored well out of reach. You want to take every precaution when it comes to your children—spilling or ingesting these products can result in detrimental harm to their health.


Garbage Disposal Etiquette

Your garbage disposal is your kitchen drain’s best friend. It helps chop items up so your plumbing can move them along with ease. However, not all items are conducive to this process. Here are the main items you want to avoid putting down your garbage disposal:

Bones
Grease
Celery and Other Fibrous Veggies
Potato Peels
Coffee Grounds
Egg Shells
Processed Carbs

The Do’s

Now that you know what to avoid, we can talk about some of the proactive measures you can take to protect your pipes.

Use Water

You can help protect your pipes against clogs by simply running water through your plumbing! This easy step will help reduce built-up debris in your drains. If you feel like your drainage is slowing down, pour boiling water down your sink. This will help remove any unwanted grease or scum that is clinging to your pipes.

Additionally, if you have faucets or fixtures that don’t get a ton of use, maybe in your guest bathroom or your office space, run water through them about once a month to keep your plumbing activated!

Use Natural Remedies

Normally, we say to air on the side of caution when it comes to trending DIY solutions; however, DIY cleaning solutions that use vinegar and baking soda are actually great for keeping your plumbing fresh in between professional maintenance appointments. Baking soda and water can combat odors and wash away debris, while the vinegar uses its mild acidity to breakdown any mineral buildup without harming your pipes.

Talk to the Pros

Ultimately, professional drain cleaning is the best way to ensure your plumbing is healthy long-term. Schedule annual drain cleanings and your plumbing will remain in tip-top shape, year-round.

Tip On Creating An Eco-Friendly Bathroom From Trusted Saskatoon Plumbers at Centennial Plumbing

Centennial Plumbing, Heating & Electrical are Trusted Saskatoon Plumbers that have been one of Saskatoon's most recommended plumbing companies for over 50 years. In their latest Trusted Saskatoon plumbing tip, they explain how to main your bathroom more eco-friendly. 


How To Make Your Bathroom Eco-Friendly

Nowadays, we understand the impact we, as a community, have on our shared environment. We enjoy some of the cleanest air and forests in all of Canada because we all take this truth to heart. Eco-consciousness can also impact our bottom line energy costs. Whether you want to save on your water or energy bill, or just want to conserve resources, we have a bunch of great tips that can make your bathroom more eco-friendly!

Water Usage

Even with the immense amount of water your dishwasher and laundry machine use, your bathroom is likely where you consume the most water. This also means it’s the ideal place to start conserving water!


We’ll start with some healthy habits that you can implement into your bathroom routine.


  • Turn off Faucet While Shaving or Brushing Teeth
  • Take Shorter Showers
  • Fix Leaks Immediately
Good habits go a long way towards helping your water usage. Make sure you are only turning that faucet handle when you are actively using water!

Low-Flow Appliances

Continuing on the theme of water conservation, consider installing low-flow versions of your bathroom appliances. You may not realize this, but your current appliances could be using more water than is necessary. Older toilets often use fifteen to twenty-six litres per flush! Compared to the new high point of just six litres, that is a huge difference!

We find a similar story with faucets and showerheads. For faucets, installing an aerator, which mixes in air with the water as it comes out of your spout, will lower the amount of water you use without affecting your water pressure. Just as older toilets use an inordinate amount of water, showerheads that were installed prior to 1994 are most likely water-wasters as well. The leading, current water-conscious showerhead brands can provide the same flow of water using only two litres a minute.

Natural and Eco-Friendly Lighting

Water isn’t the only resource you are using in your bathroom. You also have to consider your electricity use. Compared to a halogen bulb a new LED bulb is nearly 5 times more efficient, according to ENERGY STAR. Halogen light bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat. LEDs, instead, devote almost all their energy towards producing light.

Tankless Water Heater

Your third water-using resource in your bathroom is your water heater. Traditional water heaters use fuel oil or natural gas to heat your water, which is uniquely inefficient. While the concept of storing hot water makes sense intuitively, it can actually lead to a lot of energy loss from standby heat loss.

Tankless water heaters solve this problem. Instead of storing water, a tankless system heats your water supply as you need it. As the water flows in, a heating coil warms the water to the desired temperature set on your systems’ thermostat. For those who fear running out of hot water, this is an elegant solution. There is no set amount of hot water with a tankless system. You can use as much hot water as you need.

Additionally, you can pair the two systems together! Using a tankless system to supplement your traditional water heater can provide a seamless hot water supply to one fixture, to ensure you never run out of hot water through that appliance. A small point-of-use system can be used with a specific appliance, like your shower, so it does not use the hot water produced by your traditional system. This allows you to take advantage of the efficiency of a tankless system and lower the overall cost of your monthly utility costs.

Trusted Saskatoon Plumbers at Perfection Plumbing Tip Explaining How To Unclog A Toilet

Perfection Plumbing & Drain Cleaning Ltd. is a premier provider of quality drain cleaning and plumbing services in Saskatoon, SK. They are the company of choice to handle all of your plumbing concerns including drain cleaning service, water heater installation, plumbing repair, and more.  Perfection Plumbing is a Trusted Saskatoon Plumbers on the Saskatoon Directory. In their latest tip, they explain how to unclog a toilet without a plunger! 



Perfection Plumbing's Experts Explain How To Unclog Your Toilet


It’s one of the worst feelings in the world after you flush the toilet, the water doesn’t go down, but it actually starts coming back up and now you need to deal with how to unplug your toilet. Congratulations, you have clogged the toilet and your reward is going to be the awkward struggle of figuring out how to make things work again as quickly as possible.

 So let us tell you how to do it with no fuss, no muss, and no plunger. 

You’re going to need three things for this job: 

1. Hot water

2. Dish soap/liquid 

3. A little bit of time. 

You also may want some towels to put around the base of the toilet before attempting this job, or maybe just at least have some towels ready. 

The first step is to squeeze about a cup of dish liquid directly into the bowl. You’ll see it’ll eventually sink to the bottom of the bowl, where it’ll start to lubricate, whatever is causing the clog and the pipes around the clog. 

Next, add in as much hot water as you can, without overfilling the toilet, and allow that to help the dish liquid to do its job even better. Remember good things come to those who wait so we’re going to spend the next 15 to 20 minutes doing something else. While this magic potion does its thing (it’s been about 20 minutes), you’ll notice the water level has probably sunk quite a bit, this is a good thing, but resist the urge to flush. 

Fill your bucket up with hot water and dump it down the toilet again. The reason you want to do this is to help restart that water cycle and to further push that clog right down the pipe. Then you can flush and then you can move on with your day.


~Perfection Plumbing & Drain Cleaning Ltd. disclaimer: Clogs can be serious business if they are bad enough or deep enough into the system. You might need a plunger or a specialty drain product or even a professional plumber, to help you unplug your toilet. But hopefully, it won’t come to that.


For all the plumbing problems in your home, don’t hesitate to contact Perfection Plumbing for help.


JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C and Plumbing Pros For 10 Years

In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the businesses that have been with us since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are recognizing each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the public of Saskatoon and surrounding areas! In this article, we celebrate and recognize Jeff and the team at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning - Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C, and Saskatoon Plumbing Pros!

We are pleased to celebrate JOB Heating & Air Conditioning who have been a Trusted Saskatoon partner for over 10 years!

The JOB Heating & Air Conditioning team is well known for the air conditioning, furnace, and plumbing work they do for both residential and commercial customers. Jeff Bolton, worked up from employee to partner and he is now the trusted face of the company which currently has six employees. Jeff has been in the HVAC and Plumbing industry since 1989. With this many years of plumbing and heating expertise under his belt, he has a clear vision and commitment to always putting the customer and his community first. Spending many years as a volunteer, serving the community's greatest needs has given Jeff the right balance of drive and determination to always do the right thing. He has a really big heart and is dedicated to always putting the customer's needs first, he prides himself on JOB’s record of integrity, honesty, and service, and he takes being trusted very seriously.

As Jeff would say…”I do what I say, and say what I do!”

“One of Jeff’s biggest challenges over the years has been competing with kijiji’s plumbers and other HVAC companies that don’t abide by reasonable industry standards or even properly insure or register their businesses. Companies that are often run by folks that over promise and under deliver, they often undercut on price to get the job and end up not delivering on the service. Many try to make it up by high pressure sales on work or products the customer may not need. This is the total opposite of how Jeff and his team operates and as someone who was ripped off by an unscrupulous company myself I am wary. I am happy to say that I have used JOB personally several times over the last 10 years and the experience is always stellar."
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder

The JOB Heating & Air team also prides itself on being recognized as a leader in water heating system technology for new in-floor and boiler installations in Saskatoon. Jeff is passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm is infectious. What you see truly is what you get with Jeff, he is authentic and cares deeply about always leaving a good impression with clients and it is obvious that he values and supports his team, that’s why he wanted to create a business where people love to work! 

When asked about what drives Jeff, he explains his mantra around the shop is.

 “We do every job as if it was our own mother’s house. We treat each other (my coworkers) with respect and dignity and that just becomes the way that we treat everyone, especially our customers.” 

A great example of why JOB Heating & Air Conditioning has been a 10 Year Trusted Saskatoon Partner.
