Guelph Plumbers - All You Need to Know in This Region

 

If you live in Guelph, read on to discover - or be reminded of - what you need to know about plumbing in the Royal City. 

 

Guelph Plumbers Tackle Your City's Unique Water Challenges

 

According to the City website, Guelph is one of the largest Canadian cities to rely almost exclusively on groundwater for its drinking water supply. Groundwater comes from rain and melted snow that seeps into open spaces and cracks in soil and rock, and therefore contains high levels of magnesium and calcium - in other words, it's hard water.

 

Guelph has a water hardness level of 21-33 grains per gallon, which is quite high compared to the national average in Canada of 10.5 grains per gallon. To see how hard the water is in your neighbourhood, click here.

 

 

If you live in Guelph, you have some of the hardest water in Canada.

 

 

The City of Guelph maintains it "has some of the best drinking water in the world. More than 28,000 tests are completed each year on our water samples to ensure Guelph water continues to meet or exceed the provincial drinking water quality standards." While hard water is indeed suitable for drinking, it causes other issues that often require the services of Guelph plumbers. These include: 

  • difficulties getting dishes or laundry clean
  •  damage to your clothing causing items to wear out faster
  •  damage to your washing machine, dishwasher, and other appliances
  •  calcium buildup in your shower
  •  sink stains
  •  toilet bowl stains
  •  plumbing pipe damage.

To combat this, it's important to have the right water softener in your home. If you need water softener installation or repair, contact WaterSmart today. For more on the importance of water softeners, be sure to watch this video:

 

 

 

Guelph Plumbers Can Take Care of Your Backflow Devices

 

Backflow prevention ensures that drinking water is protected against the entry of contaminants, pollutants, infectious agents, and other materials or substances from homes and business. This is achieved through the installation of an appropriate backflow prevention device at the water connection where this potential exists. In order to help ensure a supply of safe, clean drinking water, the City of Guelph has chosen to take a pro-active approach with respect to backflow prevention by instituting Water Bylaw (1991)-13791, which reads:

 

"Every owner of any premises upon which is situated an industrial, commercial or institutional building which is supplied with water from the City’s water supply system shall ensure that under no condition shall there be any backflow of unpotable or contaminated water into the potable drinking water lines on said premises or into the City’s water supply system."

 

Only a certified backflow technician registered with the corresponding cities can perform the backflow prevention device test. WaterSmart is registered with Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph as an approved company to install, repair, and annually test backflow prevention devices and equipment. If you require backflow testing or device installation/repair, contact the plumbing and service experts at WaterSmart immediately.

 

Backflow prevention ensures that drinking water is protected against the entry of contaminants, pollutants, infectious agents, or other materials or from homes and businesses into the water supply.

 

 

Guelph Plumbers Can Help If You Still Have a Kitec System

 

Kitec plumbing was commonly installed in new or extensively renovated homes between 1995 and 2007 in both Canada and the United States. The manufacturers of Kitec claimed that it was resistant to corrosion and an economical alternative to copper pipes and fittings. However, in 2005, recalls began because of its accelerated corrosion rate, and they no longer manufacture it.

 

Experts believe that homes with Kitec plumbing could have premature pipe failure. These pipes may not simply develop leaks but actually burst open, causing flooding. The deterioration of Kitec pipes may be caused by using water which is hotter than the manufacturer's rating of 77 degrees Celsius or by excessive water pressure. The only solution is to completely replace this type of plumbing with copper pipes and fittings.

 

If you believe you have this type of plumbing in your home, don't take any chances. Talk to the professionals at WaterSmart today. For more information on this issue, you can read our article on Kitec Plumbing - Why You Should Replace It.

 

If you have Kitec plumbing in your home, call WaterSmart today. For more, read our article on Kitec Plumbing - Why You Should Replace It.
