Hi, we’re Wade & Jenna
We’re the family behind North Fraser Plumbing. We’ve been married for 8 years and together for 14. Fun fact: we met at work. Over time, we decided that we wanted to continue working together, but for our own business. One that would represent our values of family, health, and balance. That’s why we treat employees and customers like extensions of our own family. We go above and beyond for each other and our children and that’s exactly the way we run our business too. We don’t take your trust lightly—we earn it every single day.
What should I not put into my garbage disposal?
• Ground meat or large chunks of meat
• Coffee grounds
• Grease or bacon fat
• Rice, pasta, or other grains
• Onion, carrot, or potato peelings
• Pits, bones, nuts, shells
Basically, if we’re talking about a small amount of food that you scrape off your dish, that’s fine—that’s what your garbage disposal is for! But if you put large amounts of food into it, you’ll experience problems. Make sure to run cold water while you’re using the disposal and occasionally throw down some citrus peels to improve the smell. (Note that we can help properly size the disposal for your needs, so that it doesn’t get overloaded.)
How do I winterize my plumbing?
To protect your plumbing during those long, cold winter months:
- Turn off your outside taps (hose bibs) inside your house after you’ve opened and drained them.
- Turn off and drain any outdoor showers or any irrigation systems.
- Make sure there is proper insulation on your waterlines near outside walls or in cold spaces like the basement or attic. (If you need, we can install a product that will keep things warm and flowing.)
Why does my kitchen sink keep clogging?
When a kitchen sink keeps clogging, it’s so frustrating, but oftentimes it’s not because of a major problem. Here are the possibilities:
- If it’s only your kitchen sink, your sink drainage may be improperly installed – fortunately, this is an easy fix!
- You may be putting things down your sink that do not belong there – see FAQ #1.
- If it’s more than just your sink backing up regularly you may need camera work, jetting done or an adjustment to back grading pipes.
