Bathtub Installation & Maintenance

Tub Installation Services

Bathtub installation can be a tricky task. If it is not installed properly, leaks can cause a great deal of expensive damage to your walls and floors. As well, mould and other bacteria can hide in moisture spots and grow, causing more expensive damage in the future. At Drain King Plumbers, our team of professional plumbing technicians offer quick, efficient tub installation and repair services at a fair price.

Common Tub Issues

There are a wide variety of issues that can have a negative impact on a bathtub, including:

  • Cracks or scratches in the porcelain can become sharp, rough, and dangerous if left unaddressed
  • Any areas where the waterproofing and caulking has cracked can lead to mould and water damage
  • Clogged drains from hair, shampoo chemicals, dirt, and other debris can lead to flooding and other drainage issues
  • Leaky, rusty, or cracked pipes can also cause water damage or drainage issues while also posing the risk of flooding your home

Tub Repairs

In the event of cracked porcelain or broken caulking, our plumbers are equipped with the equipment to solve the problem – often in just one visit. We can patch many cracks and scratches and restore your bathtub to maximum functionality and aesthetic appeal. However, if a tub is too damaged to repair, we will do our best to make it functional for the short-term until we can come back and replace it.

Tub Maintenance

For those looking to increase the lifespan of their bathtub, preventative maintenance is key. Regular maintenance from a professional plumber can save you both time and money in the long run — especially if you notice signs of leaking including mould, stains, and water damage.

In addition, here are a few things you can do at home to extend the life of your tub:

  • Scrub mineral deposits and dirt away to prevent damage to the porcelain seal
  • Rinse away dirt and debris after every bath or shower
  • Treat the porcelain once or twice each year to protect its smooth, shiny coating
  • Clean your shower drain, faucet, and shower head on a regular basis to prevent the build-up of minerals and debris
