    Plumbing FAQs

    Plumbing issues are tricky to deal with, and here at Tap Tech, we receive a lot of questions from homeowners like yourself. We always provide our customers with honest information, and the following guide will give you the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that come our way!

    What should I do if I encounter a plumbing emergency?

    Plumbing emergencies can happen anytime, so it is crucial to have a reputable plumber’s phone number handy. Pin this information on your fridge or save it on your phone so that you are prepared. Whether you are dealing with sewage water overflowing in your house or another emergency, our plumbing experts are just one phone call away. Do not hesitate to give us a call because we are always ready to help.

    Why does my toilet make noise when I flush?

    There are a few reasons why this may be happening, and common issues include flapper problems, dirty valves, venting issues, or your toilet may be having problems filling. A noisy toilet is a sign that your plumbing system needs attention, and our plumbers will find the underlying cause of this issue and resolve it so you can always rely on our highly skilled plumbing technicians.

    Why are my drains clogging?

    Clogging results from a blockage that can happen when the wrong things go into your drain, including grease, feminine products, wipes and food matter. External interferences can also cause blockages, including tree roots, bird nests and bellied pipes. Most people unintentionally mistreat their drainage systems as this is something we often take for granted, but our drain cleaning services can help eliminate this problem. Our technicians will complete a drain and sewer inspection and assess the pipes’ interior so we can find the exact cause and location of your problem.

    Why is my toilet always running?

    A toilet that is constantly running may indicate that you need to replace the flapper, or you might need to trim the chain that connects the flapper to your handle. This problem can also mean that the float valve height requires an adjustment, and the good news is that we can fix every one of these problems.

    Why is my water bill increasing?

    A significant increase in your water bill may be the result of a leak, and this, too, is something we can inspect. We will find the leak if that is the problem and take care of it for you.

    My drain stinks - what should I do?

    A foul smell from your drains usually means that an obstructive item in your drains produces that nasty smell, such as grease, food or gunk. A professional drain cleaning will help eliminate this odour, and our equipment will do this successfully without damaging your drains.
