MEET Joel Chidley C.D.

Your Community Plumber

Serving His Country and Now His Community

Before becoming a licensed plumber, Joel spent 14 years in the Canadian Forces, serving with an Infantry Regiment. He joined the CF as soon as he was able at 16 years of age in February 2002, five months after the September 11th terrorist attacks on the U.S.A.

Joel completed his basic training at LFCATC Meaford, Ontario, where he became a qualified Infantry soldier in June of the same year. Throughout his career Joel was trained in demolitions, Personal Support Weapons, Leadership, Communications (Radios), Tactical Combat Casualty Care and various other courses that allowed him to become a capable member of his Regiment and soldier in the Canadian Army.

Joel served with the Grey & Simcoe Foresters, who are a Primary Reserve Regiment, located in Barrie and Owen Sound, Ontario. During his time in the Army, Joel spent a significant amount of it away from home, in locations all across the country.

It took him as far west as Wainwright, Alberta, and as far east as Aldershot, Nova Scotia, and north on endeavours to the sub-arctic. His time with the CF (Canadian Forces) took him around the world. Joel spent time in Fort Irwin, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Cyprus; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; as well as Kandahar, Afghanistan.

The Transition to Serving Your Plumbing Needs

In the early months of 2011, while still on leave from tour, Joel started to look at the prospects of getting into the plumbing trade. He started his apprenticeship in plumbing, where he earned over the 9,000 mandatory hours (5 years) working alongside a licensed tradesperson. In addition to 9,000 hours, Joel also completed three blocks of school – Basic, Intermediate and Advanced, with a registered College. Joel completed the first two at Georgian College in Midland, Ontario, and the last remaining block with Humber College in Toronto, obtaining his licence on December 31, 2014.

(The post nominals “C.D.” at the end of his name stand for “Canadian Forces Decoration” and are awarded for 12 years of good service with the CF).

Drain Camera Inspection

Video technology is a no-mess, clean and accurate way to see the problem!

Video camera in-line inspections determine the nature of the problem(s) and/or the sewer pipe condition, which cannot be confirmed by snaking or rootering on its own. Camera inspections are an excellent way to detect a variety of obstructions or potential impediments to the proper flow of drainage, including roots, broken tiles, bad mortar connections, inline traps, negative grade sloping, pipe sagging, offset joints, pipe cracks and sludge buildup.v

The camera is also a proactive way to check out the drains in any home.

Whether you own a newly purchased home or an older home, or simply plan to renovate your basement, your drains are too important to overlook. A small amount of time and small investment can save you a large amount of time in cleanup, money and headaches.

Speak to Joel about this service if you would like to have a video inspection done on your drains.
