Video Inspections / Locating Services
What Are the Advantages to Having a Video Pipe Inspection?
Drain Hacks recommends video pipe inspections if you are experiencing: frequent drain backups, slow drains or prior to the purchase of a new home in the Calgary area.
There are several factors that can cause harm to your drainage system:
Foreign Objects in the Pipe
“Belly” in the Line
Since your pipes are located behind walls, under the flooring, or underground, determining the specific location and origin of a persistent problem can involve a lot of guesswork without the aid of a video inspection.
Obtaining a video inspection of these hidden pipes prior to the purchase of a new home allows you to ensure that the sewer line is free from defects or problems that could potentially be expensive, messy, and stressful.
The use of a video pipe inspection saves money in the long-term by accurately targeting the exact source of the problem, and allowing our technician to identify what service is needed to effectively and efficiently address your individual plumbing situation. Using this method; costly and repeated service calls are prevented. In addition, a video pipe inspection is prevantative: it allows us to identify a developing issue before it becomes an expensive repair, or even worse: a major sewer backup into your house.
At Drain Hacks we have inspection cameras to assist in all residential and commercial needs. We can service lines as small as 1 1/4″ – 8″ in diameter and we provide our customers with a flash drive copy of the video taken. Contact us today for more information!
Sewer Jetting & Steaming
High-pressure water jetting is an economical, efficient, and environmentally safe way to clear blockages in drains or pipes.
Through the use of state-of-the-art pumps and flexible hoses, we blast pressurized water through the affected pipe, removing all solids and residues for a thorough, long-lasting clean.
Rooting or snaking can leave residue behind even when the unblocking job is done, and some residues are sticky and will only cause the pipe to be prone to clogging again. High-pressure water jetting cleans the pipes thoroughly, leaving none of this residue behind. Even the toughest blockages and buildup can’t stand up to the power of water jetting.
Our water jetters create enough pressure to effectively clean out a wide range of pipes, drains, and other equipment such as:
Leaching field lines
From parkade drain lines to restaurants to frozen storm drains: Our high pressure jetting and steam unit can do the job of completely clearing your drains of stubborn grease, roots. Or even thawing ice from frozen storm drains. Contact us today to schedule an appointment on how we can clear your drain!
Sump Pump Service & Replacement
Our technicians are trained to clean out sump pits, as well as service or replace sump pumps in both residential and commercial settings.
You probably haven’t thought about your sump pump much since it was first installed in your home. Many homeowners don’t because a sump pump isn’t a plumbing element that is used all the time. That doesn’t mean it’s any less important than your water heater, shower, garbage disposal, or any other plumbing equipment you use regularly. The reality is if you ever find yourself standing ankle-deep in a flooded basement, you will find a deep appreciation for your basement sump pump system.
A sump pump is a device that’s installed in the lowest corner of your house, which is normally the basement. It’s primary objective is to prevent flooding. After periods of heavy rain, the water table can rise and make streets, yards, and basements perceptible to flooding. A proper sump pump installation will ensure that water is collected and moved away from the building, so your home doesn’t suffer any water damage. However, to ensure your sump pump will handle a flooding situation, you should get regular sump pump services.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Make sure you’re getting regular sump pump services with our experts. Nobody wants to find out that their sump pump isn’t working when there is a surprise flood in the basement of your home. We perform thorough inspections of your sump pump and sump pit, and offer sump pump battery backup installation. We at Drain Hacks recommend scheduling annual sump pump maintenance to ensure your basement sump pump system runs smoothly and that you can count on it when you need it!
