Kawartha Plumbing & Heating Residential and Commercial Specialists.
Backflow Installation and Testing:
Backflow prevention assembly is used to protect water supplies from contamination or pollution. In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, the pressure in the pipe may be reduced and may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn into the system.
Kawartha Plumbing & Heating does their best to ensure that you, your family or your business have access to safe and clean water without the worry of contamination from backflow.
New Work and Renovations:
Kawartha Plumbing & Heating strives to meet your expectations and creates the ideal system for you.
Pumps & Pressure Systems:
A pumping system includes pump, piping and necessary electrical connections to pump water from the well into the house, and a pressure tank to maintain constant water pressure in the house.
Submersible pumps are usually used in drilled wells, while shallow wells usually use centrifugal pumps, which are located out of the well, in the basement or in a pump house.
Pressure systems are designed to create a constant water pressure for the water in your household. When using a hose or sprinkler a pressure system could be a simple fix for loss of water.
Plumbing is one of today's luxuries that we tend to take for granted; that is, of course, until it stops working. When you have tried plunging and snaking a clogged drain in your house only to find the pipes are clean and the drain is still blocked, don't lose hope. When you call (link to contact page) Kawartha Plumging & Heating we will work on having the problem resolved.
In-Floor Heating Systems:
Modern underfloor heating systems use either electrical resistance elements ("electric systems") or fluid flowing in pipes (“hydronic systems”) to heat the floor. Either type can be installed as the primary, whole-building heating system or as localized floor heating for thermal comfort.
Electrical resistance can only be used for heating so when space cooling is also required, hydronic systems are used. Other applications for which either electric or hydronic systems are suited include snow/ice melting for walks, driveways and landing pads, turf conditioning of football and soccer fields.
