Storm Drain Repair Replacement

Today, AAADRAIN specialists would like to tell you about drain and storm drain repair.

Recently, we’ve ran into a situation where those two systems were running far from each other and the runoff was going in different directions. We replaced both the drain and the storm drain then installed two backwater valves – one for the storm drain, and another for the drain. Of course this is much more expensive than simply replacing one of the pipes. However, the systems were located relatively far from each other and pipe replacement would invite problems in the future.

Storm Drain Repair or Replacement?

There are numerous things to consider when cleaning, replacing storm drain pipes, or conducting storm drain repair. By storm drain pipes we mean pipes that are located underground, not the eaves-trough (eaves-troughs need to be cleaned once a year). First, make sure that your drain and storm drain systems do not have traps on their main lines. Traps are the cause of 99% of all drain problems. Additionally, its favorable to have two back-to-back clean-outs installed since they allow for much easier access to the drain system.

When to consider storm drain replacement

When replacing a drain system you must consider that drain systems usually are located close to each other (about 1 foot apart). Thus, if you’re going to be replacing your main drain line, consider replacing your storm drain as well instead of having to perform another storm drain repair in the future. This will save you money in the future as you won’t need to spend extra money to dig down to the systems again.

Additionally, consider the weather conditions when replacing your drain systems. when installing a backwater valve, eaves-troughs are turned off. Thus if there is a rainstorm, it is better to wait until fairer, dry conditions. Otherwise, you would have rainwater running on your surface. Finally, the drain system has a relatively stable load throughout the year, while the storm drain load depends on the weather.

Snaking may solve your problems within minutes. However, if a tree root is the reason for the blockage, it will grow back and the problem will resurface again.

On the other hand, a hydrojet is very effective when dealing with oil or calcium deposits. If that was the culprit, then we’d obviously the a hydrojet.

During every kind of service we perform a camera inspection, and based on its results figure out a solution that works for you and your family.

Sometimes, the best solution is to perform a full or partial replacement of the drain system. If you have a building trap, we recommend swapping it for two back-to-back cleanouts, and possibly installing a backwater valve, for the insallation of which you get a rebate from the city of Toronto.

Drain Issues and Problems

Today, we, AAADrain professionals, would like to tell you about the causes of drain issues, and how to prevent them. Everyone knows the importance of a well-functioning sewer and drain system for cities, neighborhoods, and homes. The city of Toronto is responsible for the city’s systems, so we will not focus on it today. Instead, we will focus on the drain system that runs in your home.

drain issues

Drain issues usually belong to one of the two following categories – problems that occur due to misuse and a lack of maintenance, and problems that occur regardless of the aforementioned.

Let’s start with the first category. Drain issues can, for instance, occur due to oil buildup from the kitchen sink or items that get into the drain accidentally. This can often happen when there’s a dog in the house, so in that case its best to keep the washroom shut to prevent any problems.

Excess oil buildup occurs due to oil that gets into the drain by the kitchen sink, thus its best to wipe excess oil away and toss it into the garbage instead.

Oftentimes, a root can grow into your drain pipes, especially if you have trees around your house.

All of the mentioned culprits can cause a drain backup, which is never welcome. Those can prevent you from using the washroom or even take a shower.

So to prevent this from happening, you (or with our help) need to perform an inexpensive camera inspection to evaluate the state of your drain system, check all the pipes and traps. We recommend performing such an inspection every few years.

Drain problems can be evidenced by a few symptoms – a bad smell in your basement, audible sounds of flow from your drain pipes, or a water leak in your basement.

If you encounter any problems, just give us a call. We have 15 years of experience solving drain problems across the GTA, the latest technologies, and a flawless reputation. We never charge any extra fees, all the work is licensed, insured, and comes with a lengthy warranty.

Eaves-trough Cleaning

We’d like to pay special attention to the eaves-trough. They need to be cleaned at least once a year, especially after leaves fall, and especially if you have trees around your house.

If rainwater gets stuck in eaves-trough, it can damage your foundation and run down into the basement. It is also a good idea to clean your catch basins. If any of the aforementioned devices are connected to your main drain, it would be wiser to connect them through a p-trap. P-trap cleaning takes less time and is easier to reinstall.

Cracks in walls and foundation

Check your house and if you see any cracks in walls or the foundation, patch them up with cement or appropriate material. Ensure that water cannot leak into your basement.

It is also a good idea to check the whole water system for leaks – not pipes, but devices like your toilet. You can write down the numbers from your water counter before going to sleep, and make sure it matches the one next morning.

Drain Problems And Their Fixes

Drain Problems

Today we want to provide you insights on where drain problems typically originate from. Drain problems can usually be divided into two categories – man-caused or independent of human actions.

Drain Problems

Frequent Causes of Drain Problems

From our experience we conclude that the most frequent cause of drain problems are roots that get grown into pipes. This usually happens on drain lines with old ceramic pipes that develop cracks over time in joint areas. Then roots grow into and across the pipes. One time we even extracted a root that completely covered a 6-inch pipe.

Another frequent cause of problems may lie in a bad slope of the sewer line. You may inquire about this when purchasing a new house. A bad slope of the sewer line, along with shifts and bad pipe connections may cause backups and disrupt your life in the household.

Calcium Deposits

Serious problems may also be caused by calcium deposits. Calcium deposits are a result of excessive amounts of cooking oil and dishwashing liquid ending up in your sewer pipes. This combination creates a calcium deposit which in turn completely blocks sewer pipes.

Often, homeowners are not always aware of the conditions of their sewer pipes. Problems mentioned above occur rather frequently, resulting in sewer backups, and often lead to very expensive repairs.

Thus, for your peace of mind, we offer best-in-class drain maintenance service which is rather inexpensive and does not take much time to perform. We will assess the conditions of your pipes with a quick camera inspection, and if there are any problems, we will figure out a solution with you, that works best for you and your household.

Our 15 years of experience dealing with drain problems and skillful professionals, along with the use of latest technologies, help us provide a great service for customers across the GTA.

Blocked drain repair

Blocked drain repair

Hello friends.

Today we want to tell you about replacement and blocked drain repair that does not involve any digging. A blocked drain system is unpleasant – it brings bad smells, a backup in your basement, dirty water, bacteria, and a need for repairs that may turn out costly.

With that in mind, it is important to take preventative measures and save money in the future. First off, whenever you notice a bad smell in the house, or flies in the basement while the doors are locked, or a slow drain in the basement’s laundry – you likely have problems with your drain system. But don’t panic – just give us a call and our experienced professionals (with 15 years of experience) will take a look, and conduct blocked drain repair to restore your drain to an optimal functioning state.

blocked drain repair

For a successful resolution of any sewer problem, it is necessary to conduct a camera inspection. This always leads us to the root of the problem (if any). Then we discuss further possibilities and choose a solution that works for you.

Clogged drain repair, replacement, cleaning

The most common solutions are drain cleaning and replacement of sewer pipes. When replacing sewer pipes we usually resort to digging around the problematic areas, but recently our company purchased a drain burster. This machine lets us swap out large areas of your sewer system by digging out only a couple of ditches. By the end of a procedure involving a drain burster you get brand new and durable sewer pipes for a lower price, and your landscaping intact.

However, drain burster work requires more comprehensive camera inspection, to ensure that the slope of the area that is going to be worked on is appropriate.

Sewer backup cleaning

Drain blockages and sewer backup cleaning

Hello friends.

Today we would like to tell you about the causes blockages of your sewer system. Based on our 15 years of experience, most problems occur in the building trap. He is the reason for which we can not do a full cleaning of your system or explore its camera. Therefore, we recommend to remove building traps and instead install two back-to-back clean-outs. They make it easier to perform sewer backup cleaning or drain maintenance.

Sewer backup cleaning service

A further problem in older homes is the transition from cast iron to ceramic pipes. Typically, the roots grow in the cast iron pipes. If you have a clean-out on your drain – the roots are easily removed with the help of a mechanical snake. If not, then we recommend that you replace the bottom of the stack, with the installation of clean-out on the stack. With this clean-out we can carry out an inspection with a camera or purge all your main drain.

Another cause of pollution of your sewer system can become excessive hit it fat. This happens, as a rule, through the kitchen stack. This is a problem that is easier to prevent, than solve. Simply wipe away the extra oil from the dishes into the garbage, before cleaning them.

Backups in your basement will bring dirty water, bad smell, humidity, and costly repairs – including sewer backup cleaning. Hence why it is better to proactively prevent them than deal with consequences.
