Spring Drain Maintenance
Spring is here and we would like to guide you on how to prepare for this season. In spring and summer we consume a lot more water, without noticing. This may be due, for example, to spring and summer being the season of watering lawns. Note that even a small leak from a tap in the garden, for the duration of the whole season, can result in a big overall inflow of water. Its easy to check whether your tap is leaking. That’ll be your first spring drain maintenance step. Simply record the data from the water meter before bedtime, and ensure it matches the numbers next morning.
Also keep in mind that spring will melt the snow, there will be rains, and a lot of water will go into your system. It wouldn’t hurt to perform a spring drain maintenance and check whether everything is functioning properly via a camera inspection. If you find any problems, we can fix them using a snake or perform a full or partial replacement.
If you have a building trap, even if you do all the work properly, you need to replace it, and establish back-to-back cleanouts, which will help you in the following operating your drain system.
Cleanouts that are located outside make it very easy to identify any problems on your main drain line.
For drain service work we prefer using mechanical snakes. They are very fast, effective, and relatively inexpensive. We also recommend setting up cleanouts on every stack, in order to be able to perform a camera inspection not only on the main drain line, but also on other branches.
Flood Dangers and Prevention
It is also worth noting the possibility of a rainy summer season and the inability of the city’s drain system to consistently and effectively deal with rainwater. To prevent any damages to your property, we recommend installing a backwater valve, which prevents numerous causes of flooding in their tracks.
