Backwater valve Installation and Repair Services

A backwater valve, also called a back flow or sewer backup valve is a valve you can install on your sewer line. The purpose of this valve is to allow water or sewage to flow only one way, and that is to flow out and away from your house. In city of Toronto, sewer lines can become overwhelmed whenever there is a sudden heavy rainfall, and it will cause water or sewage to flow back towards your home and you will end up with a flooded basement. However if there is a sewer system backup, and you have a backwater valve in place, sewage will not be able to flow back into your house. The good news is that city of Toronto provides backwater valve installation rebate to eligible homes.

Backwater valve be installed in the initial new construction or can be mounted into existing homes. Installing during the initial construction is certainly much cheaper; when retrofitting to an already built house, some concrete will need to be removed to access main sewer line and this will therefore increase the cost to some extent.

Our Plumbers are well trained and experienced and familiar to handling this type of repair.

Video Camera Inspection for sewer lines and other underground pipes

One of the most valuable tools in the plumbing and drain business are the Video Cameras. The Specially designed and made waterproof plumbing inspection cameras enable expert plumbers to have a visual inspection of sewer lines and other underground pipes, including pipes under cement and under your home’s or office foundation.

In order to do a sewer camera inspection, a licensed experienced plumber will insert a rod with a high-resolution video camera on its tip into your sewer lines. These specifically designed high-tech drain cameras are flexible enough to enable plumbers to go through twists and turns in sewer lines and carefully observe and examine pipes and pipe walls in drain lines from 2 inches to 36 inches in diameter.

The video tape is conveyed to the technician at the same time so the situation and condition inside your sewer and drain lines can be evaluated immediately. Our Plumber will run you through the video footage and you will be able to view any problems right on a monitor, and the video recording is saved for future reference.

If you are experiencing regular or repeated sewer or drain line backups, slow drains, or clogs, Sewer camera inspection services are recommended for your place. Unexpected high water bills can possibly be a sign that sewer line may be leaking, which is also recognized with a sewer line video inspection.

Kitec Plumbing Replacement

Kitec plumbing is another difficulty which we can assist you with at Ray Plumbing. From 1995 to 2007, as an alternative to copper pipes, they were marketed as corrosion-resistant pipes and widely used in houses and condominiums in Canada.

Sump Pump Repair & Installation

If you are living in a house in GTA Toronto, you may probably know that basement flooding is a typical problem, with the heavy rains that we have in the city every year. The City of Toronto recommends a number of measures homeowners can take to decrease your risk of flooding. The City offers homeowners financial assistance for eligible flood prevention measures, including sump pump installation.

There are several ways which the water usually gets into the basement:

  • From weeping tiles surrounding the area
  • Overflow from the ground water if your basement level is lower than the water table
  • Through your perimeter drains during periods of high water, such as rainstorms and flooding

In general sump pumps are used to remove water from a hole in the floor known as a sump pit. As part of a sump pit drainage system, the pit is a hole located in the floor of your basement or crawl spaces beneath a home to collect water. The purpose of sump pits is to gather water in one place for easy drainage to a place away from the home.
Sump pumps will wear out over time and will need to be replaced just like any equipment with moving parts. There is no specific rule on how often a sump pump should be replaced since it really depends on how often the pump operates. Regular maintenance of sump pump is very important as it will prevent unexpected failures.
At Ray Plumbing we provide full Repair and Installation services for Sump Pumps. We are specialized in both Residential and Commercial Plumbing Services, so our licensed plumbers are familiar with most of the brands. Our certified technician plumbers at Ray Plumbing have full expertise to repair your Sump Pump, no matter how old it is.

Water Heating Options

According to the department of energy, about 15-25 percent of our household energy use billing comes from heating water, and this may become a larger portion if you upgrade the energy efficiency of your home and its space heating and cooling systems without upgrading your water heating system, so when choosing water heater, efficiency is a key concern.
There are two types of heaters that you can choose from: Gas and Electric. Gas water heaters use natural gas to produce the energy needed to heat water, while electric heaters use electric resistance coils.

 

How a water heater works:

A water heater uses energy to increase the temperature of cold water coming in from the municipal water system or from your well. Most commonly, hot water is stored in a tank, but in the case of a tankless or on-demand water heater, the water is heated only as it is needed. A variety of water heaters is available.
Below table lists water heater types and the energy source available for each type.

Possible energy sources by water heater type:

Water heater type Electric Gas* Oil
Storage Tank Yes Yes Yes
Tankless Yes Yes
Heat Pump Yes
Solar domestic hot water system Yes Yes Yes

* Gas refers to either natural gas or propane (Reference: Water Heater Guide by NRC)

There is a great worth reading article named Water Heater Guide by Natural Resources Canada which fully explains all about water heaters for Canadian households. The link to the article can be found below:

https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/sites/www.nrcan.gc.ca/files/oee/files/pdf/equipment/WaterHeaterGuide_e.pdf

 

Here are some of the differences between Gas and Electric water heaters to help you make the right choice.

Pros of Buying a Gas Heater:

  • The gas heaters generally pay for themselves in energy savings after a year.
  • Gas water heaters are able to heat more hot water per hour than electric, making them a good option for large families. A fifty-gallon tank can be heated in one hour, while it could take a few hours to heat an electric tank.
  • Gas heaters will still work during a power outage.

Cons of Buying a Gas Heater:

  • Gas is less efficient than electricity.
  • The cost of a gas heater is more than an electric heater.
  • Because water is heated at all times, there is more heat loss through the walls of the storage tank.
  • Without proper maintenance, you may risk an explosion from a gas leak.
  • You must install extra piping for the gas exhaust.

The Pros of Choosing an Electric Water Heater:

  • Many options are available that include larger and smaller tanks for both long term and immediate use.
  • Electric heaters have been developed to only heat the water you need when you turn it on.
  • Since water is not constantly being heated they are more efficient. This leads to energy savings.
  • Since they do not need the addition of the release exhaust, Electric heaters need less space.

The Cons of Choosing an Electric Water Heater:

  • If you have a large family, you may have to wait some hours for the water tank to heat up because Electric heaters have a low recovery rate.
  • The cost of maintaining and using an electric water heater is much higher than gas because the cost of electricity has gone up. In other words, the energy you save in efficiency will often be lost in the cost of electricity.

Choosing a water heater can be difficult and ultimately, it comes down to the size of your family and the cost of electricity versus gas. These pricing differences can vary depending on where you live. For this reason, you should be sure to check the costs for your area. Gas and electric heaters often have similar installation prices and last the same number of years, so it can be difficult to make a decision. At the end of the day going through the homework to make sure you choose the right water heater will work toward saving you a lot of money in the long run.
