Brian from Homestars was recently kind enough to point out the fact that Drainworks has an active blog. Thanks for the mention! Actually, we have had an active blog for well over a year now. Not to give away trade secrets or anything, but we feel the blog is an essential tool for us, in […]

If you know us, read our blog, or occasionally visit our site, you’ll know I’m a stickler for accountability. I hate liars and I hate being lied to. Don’t we all? One of the ways we get the word out on what kind of company we are is to encourage every customer we service to […]

Kitchen clogs: how to avoid them and how to unclog them

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments · by

Here’s another tip from your plumbers in Toronto  for keeping your drains flowing smoothly. Fats or greases poured or washed down a drain often cause kitchen clogs. Fatty deposits cool and solidify along the walls of your pipes. Over time, these deposits trap other debris and before long, your pipe is clogged shut. The best […]

Winterizing Your Home Plumbing System

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments · by

Most of us reside in our homes throughout the year, but some folks are fortunate enough to head south to escape the cold. In the old days, people used to turn down the thermostat, let a tap trickle and that was it. They were gone. Of course, today we know that’s not enough. The insure […]

Here, yet again, is another post form the Plumber who seems to spend way too much of his time fighting snakes instead of using them. My play on words are a bit tongue in cheek of course, but the reality isn’t a joke. Our business, like most businesses suffers greatly at times as a result […]

You won’t believe what you can’t see…until you see it that is.

May 21st, 2008 · No Comments · by

One of the really valuable tools in our industry is a digital drain snake camera. Essentially, it’s a camera we can snake into your drainpipe so we can see what’s going on underground. Drains aren’t the most complex of systems, so when they slow down, back up or begin to smell funny, we have a […]

Authenticity: if we all seek it, why is it so hard to find?

May 20th, 2008 · No Comments · by

I’m a stickler for details. Always have been. I measure my words carefully and I never make promises I don’t intend to keep. Of course, that means just like you I am often frustrated by misleading service or false promises. It is completely beyond me why business constantly says one thing yet demonstrates something else.

Service: a definition

April 20th, 2008 · No Comments · by

Everyone claims to offer the best Toronto plumbing services in the city. But when you peel away the slick marketing for many of these companies, the word “service” might just as well be a four-letter word the way some people choose to deliver it. Here’s a definition of the word that I like and try […]
