While toilets, sinks and bathtubs sometimes require repair or replacing. Whether it is the
fixture itself or the plumbing connecting it, repairs and replacements can be costly. You
want to make sure that you are getting only the work that is required.
You may think that repairing your running toilet isn’t a priority. After all, no water is going
on the floor, no mess to clean up. You might not even notice it right away. But the
hundreds of gallons of water a week that you are wasting is going to hit hard when the

sink repair. You’ll want to call a plumber in immediately if the water in your sink stinks or
is a brownish colour.
Bathtub repair doesn’t just refer to the plumbing aspects. You might have a clogged
drain. Maybe the shower pull or the drain stop no longer works. Or perhaps you have
water leaking underneath your tub that requires repair. But, the most common repairs
have to do with the tub itself.
Bathtubs do get old and worn out over time. They can become cracked or otherwise
damaged. Replacing a bathtub is a huge pain, and can be extremely expensive. A
cheaper alternative is bathtub repair. Essentially a lining is placed on the bathtub that
cures and creates a solid seal that prevents future problems for years. If you have a
porcelain tub a bathtub repair might include refinishing of the surface to eliminate
