Hot Water Heaters
Things to consider when changing a Hot Water Tank:
Gas or Electric, Size 40g / 50g / 60g etc. For a family of 4 we recommend
installing a 50g. This will allow more hot water for those morning showers.
Rigid sewer cleaning | Small snake | Large snake
We have equipment applicable for different jobs: For your main sewer, we use
the rigid sewer cleaning machine with knives ranging from 2″ to 4″. If you live in
a neighbourhood with many trees you may want to consider having your main sewer line cleaned regularly — at least once a year. For a drain such as kitchen or bathroom;
a snake is generally used.
BACK UP VALVES
In Winnipeg as in many cities, it is important to protect your home or business
from possible sewer back up. Call us for an inspection if you are not sure if your home
is equipped with a back flow prevention device. It is also important to advise your insurance company if you have backflow prevention; they most often will credit
your policy when this is in place.
We can supply and install pumps for residence or business.
We supply install pumps for sump pits.
We also supply pumps for boilers, lift stations etc.
The equipment used indicates the location of the pipe in order to minimize opening up floors. This is particularly important when locating a line break in a concrete floor.
LICENSED BACKFLOW DEVICE TESTING
Did you know that Back Flow Preventers have to be registered?
And They have to be tested every year with reports sent in to the authorities?
That the testing equipment we use has to be calibrated with test reports sent
to the authorities once a year? We are licensed and registered to test repair
and install all types of Backflow/Cross connection devices. With more and more
water lines connecting to manufacturing and production equipment of all types,
the potential for potable water lines getting contaminated is a never ending
concern. We are working in concert with the authorities on keeping our drinking
water as safe as possible.

Furnace Inspections, Repair, Maintenance & Cleaning
Although we can replace your furnace with a furnace of your choice, below are a few different possibilities for you to look at:
Furnace inspections are regulated; there are guidelines to follow. The province of Manitoba has a standard form used by all companies to inspect units.
Furnaces need upkeep like most mechanical units. We recommend an annual cleaning and inspection in order to ensure proper function.
Remember to change the filters on your furnace on a regular basis. We recommend once a month. Mark it in your calendar or send yourself a reminder to change your filters on a particular day each month; for example, the first day of the month or every last Saturday of the month. The important thing here is to change it regularly. Your system will function better with this simple procedure.
