Clogged drains? we specialize in drain clearing!
Admiral Plumbing offers complete drain clearing services in the Oakville and Burlington area! We clear all clogged drains in your bathroom sinks, kitchen sinks and garburators, laundry room sinks, and main sewer drains.
Please don’t use those harsh cleaners on the grocery shelves to try to clear your blockages. Sometimes a blockage may be caused by something as simple as hair, in which case a drain cleaning agent may work to help dissolve the item that is causing the blockage for a short time. But frequently using these products will only dissolve the hair, or other foreign matter, into a clump leaving you with the same problem and wasted time.
As plumbers in Oakville and Burlington we see this issue almost every day. We know that often the clog is a symptom and not the actual problem. Therefore, it is usually wise to have a licenced plumber look at the problem. Your stoppage could be caused by roots or other objects. If this is the case, drain cleaning products are a waste of time and money. Depending on how far down your line the blockage is, you may need specialized plumbing equipment to help clear the stoppage and restore the normal flow of water down your drain.
Also, if you have tried using the chemical clearing agents prior to calling Admiral Plumbing, please let the plumber know!

Hot Water Tanks
There are several types of water heaters using several types of energy. The most common water heaters in the Oakville and Burlington areas are electric or gas tank style water heaters, otherwise known as hot water tanks. Both the electric and gas hot water tanks are either owned or rented. To know if you are renting your hot water tank, look at your hydro bill or gas bill in the itemized section. Please note: if you are renting a water heater then your rental company is the only company that can provide service to that unit.
Warning for renters: The tanks rental fees will cost you more than purchasing the tank out right!
Another point to consider for gas rental tanks is the quality. I know most people who are renting don’t really care about the quality so long as it works. But that is a mistake that can cost them thousands of dollars over time.
Standard hot water tanks have an energy factor of only 59 per cent when they are brand new, but over time the accumulation of sediment in the bottom of the tank further reduces the energy efficiency of the unit. These tanks simply were not made to be efficient, just cheap to rent. The low rental price tag is attractive, but the energy bills will not be.
Currently the only high efficiency natural gas water heaters available start at over $4,000. Not many people have those installed due to their higher costs. There is however a movement towards tankless water heaters (they have been used in Europe for over 20 years and are well-known for their energy savings). These tankless water heaters have an energy factor around .85 and are designed in such a way as to allow for future cleaning to maintain that efficiency. They are also smaller and hung on a wall taking up less living and/or storage space.
For those who can’t afford the more efficient natural gas water heaters, electric is still a very efficient way of heating water. One big advantage is they are quiet and reliable. But the bad news is they are an expensive energy user. If your water demands are small, an electric hot water tank may still be a viable option. In most cases electric hot water tanks are the least costly option to have installed.
Deciding which type of water heater to go with is not always as easy as you would hope. You need to consider your budget, the time you will be in the home, and your hot water consumption patterns.

Need to replace that old bathroom sink? We can solve all of your Burlington and Oakville plumbing needs. There are extensive lines of sinks in a variety of styles, materials and colours to choose from. Remember, it’s important to choose sinks that are built to withstand the rigors of your daily bathroom routine.
Pedestal sinks feature a lavatory basin that is positioned at a comfortable standing height and rests on a pedestal base. Some are reminiscent of china washbasins, with finished inside and outside walls. They can be installed to rest above the countertop, or in some cases can be installed with a wall-mount bracket. Wall-mount sinks feature a basin that is hung from the wall at a desired, functional height. Some sinks feature a matching shroud that is placed beneath the basin, for support and to attractively conceal the piping.
Under-mount sinks are required for installation with some specialty countertop selections. When selecting a sink, it’s important to make sure that it’s compatible with your faucet. Sinks are drilled for faucets with a distance of either 4-inches (center-set) or 8-12-inches (widespread) between the hot and cold faucet handles. Centre-set drillings will accommodate most single-control faucets. Many sinks are also offered with centered single-hole drillings to accommodate single-hole faucets. Some sinks do not have faucet drillings—the faucet is mounted directly on the countertop or on the wall.
No matter what style you choose, your Oakville and Burlington plumbers are here to install it properly the first time!
