Frequently Asked Questions about Plumbing

C.A. Smith Mechanical Ltd. in North Eastern Nova Scotia, is more than happy to help you with small to large Plumbing & Heating questions. If you are experiencing a Plumbing emergency, you can review these questions and answers while you are waiting for a repair service from our company. Many people have common questions about sewer lines or clogged drains, so we have compiled the top five plumbing FAQs here.

  1. Why do drains get clogged?
    For the most part, kitchen drains clog because people get careless with what they put in them. Bathroom drains tend to clog because of hair buildup, and oil residue from soaps and shampoos. Having your drains cleaned annually can help eliminate expensive back- ups.
  2. Do I need a plumber to fix a leaky faucet or a clogged drain?
    Our Technicians at C.A. Smith Mechanical Ltd. are highly skilled at repairing faucets and clearing clogged drains. They can diagnose and solve problems that you might not be able to detect.
  3. Why does my faucet drip?
    Usually a dripping faucet is the result of an internal component that needs repair or replacement. This is an inexpensive and simple fix that can save you tons of money over time.
  4. Is it a big deal if my toilet runs non-stop?
    Leaky toilets can add hundreds of dollars every year onto your water bill. A toilet that runs non-stop indicates that some parts of the mechanism are faulty.
  5. What can I put in my garbage disposal?
    Almost all biodegradable food waste can be put into garbage disposals. However, high-fiber content foods and non-food materials should never be run through a disposer.
