Shower head replacement is one of the simplest plumbing tasks you can do at home. There are many reasons why you would choose to install a new shower head — one of the most common is when your current shower head fails to spray properly. This can be caused by lime and calcium deposits that have collected over time, or due to corrosion. This guide will walk you through the entire process of shower head installation.
Ahh, toilets. What would we do without them? Ensuring that they work properly is important. But their parts break down over time, leading to common issues. No matter how strong and durable your toilet is, if you don’t give it the care it deserves, sooner or later it will fail.
The key is proper maintenance and care. We all know we shouldn’t flush foreign objects down the toilet, but aside from this, we also need to know how to keep our toilets in tip top shape.
Old buildings often have gutters on the verge of failure, or gutter systems that were never installed properly to begin with. Modern buildings usually have more effective guttering systems, but even they need to be looked after.
If rain water starts overflowing from your gutter, don't ignore it — take immediate action! Clearing your gutter at the proper time can make a huge difference in your drainage and repair bills.
Most people know their water heater is an essential household appliance, but do you know that it typically accounts for 15-20% of your energy bill expenses?

Going without a water heater entirely isn't practical, but there are definitely ways you can ration your use to conserve energy and keep some extra money in your pocket. Give these tips a try.
There's been an age-long debate about whether to keep central heating systems on all the time, or only when you need them. In this post, we aim to guide you towards making sure your Vancouver Island home consumes less energy.

It's best to remember these top gas safety tips year round, but they're especially important come winter.
Plumbing is a common requirement, and almost every home has a plumber that they rely on. Homeowners often have a lot of plumbing questions, so we thought we'd answer some of the most common ones in a post. These are some of the most frequently asked questions our Greater Victoria plumbers hear.
Usually homeowners consider plumbing an emergency service, and when not immediately required it's "out of sight and out of mind". On top of this, there are several plumbing myths that most homeowners believe that prevent them from seeking help even when they are aware of various plumbing issues. Here we take a look at some of the most expensive plumbing myths.

There are plumbing companies in Langford & Colwood that offer emergency solutions, but it's also good for you to know the basics. Once an issue is no longer manageable, you can get in touch with a Westshore plumbing service to handle the situation.
