Safety advice from A1 Choice Plumbing & Drain in Kelowna & West Kelowna

According to this Castanet article the Okanagan area saw the second highest amount of damage from struck gas lines across B.C. last year. Spring is here and sunny weather is on the horizon, making it the perfect time to get started on all those outdoor projects that piled up on the household to-do list during the winter months. Whether you’re excavating on a job site or digging in your own garden, it is important to find out where gas lines and buried utilities are before you dig.

Sometimes a project is more of a necessity than a desire, for example many Peachland residents will soon be facing the transition from septic to sewer systems. Sewer services can be a big job, fortunately our team makes sewer work hassle-free from start to finish.
