Why is Drain Cleaning and Service Important?

Mopping your bathroom floor every time you use the toilet can be a nightmarish situation to deal with.

Most home and business owners don’t think about their plumbing unless there’s an emergency. Unfortunately, ignoring your plumbing problems until the last minute often leads to extensive property damage and costly repairs. In fact, clogged drains not only pose risks to your property, they can prove to be a health hazard too.

You may first want to use a plunger to clear the drain but if that doesn’t work (and it won’t work if the problem is a complex one), please call in the local plumbing specialists. Our certified staff have the know-how and expertise to resolve a wide range of plumbing problems. They are experienced in resolving the issue without posing further risks to your property.

To prevent the stress of overflowing toilets, backed-up sewer lines and clogged drains, it’s a good idea to get preventative drain and sewer cleaning done at regular intervals. Professional drain cleaning services not only provides short term benefits but will also result in cleaner, healthier drains over the long term.


Signs You Need Drain Cleaning Services at Your Victoria Property

You probably need a video camera inspection and drain cleaning service in Victoria, BC if:

  • You’re purchasing an older home in Victoria, BC and don’t want nasty plumbing surprises
  • Your home is more than 10 years old and you’ve never had a drain inspection done
  • You’re noticing problems like slow draining off, backing up of water in the tub or sink and clogging in the toilets


How Are Drains Inspected?

Drain cleaning cameras and inspection systems offer users three important opportunities to inspect and assess the situation:

  1. Before cleaning to determine the extent of the problem, its location, and required actions
  2. During cleaning to determine progress
  3. After cleaning to determine if the technician performed the cleaning properly and ensure the free-flowing condition of the pipeline


Inspection cameras have several key components, including the cable reel, the pushrod, and the camera chip in a pickup head with a light source to illuminate the object being inspected.

These components connect to the monitor by video cable or wirelessly to complete the basic package.

These components form one system technicians can move to and around the jobsite. Early-generation cameras rotated in the drain, causing the display to show the water at the bottom, side or top of the picture.


What To Expect During a Video Camera Drain Inspection

Video camera inspections take the guesswork out of the process and eliminate the need to dig up your yard in order to diagnose the issue. After making an appointment at a preferred time, our technician will let down a video cable camera into the sewer branch lines that lead out from tubs, showers, toilets and sinks.

Our team then uses the video camera images to pinpoint the location and extent of the problem. Based on this information, we decide on how to resolve the problem in the best way possible. Drain problems often include clogs (something blocking the drain like hair, debris, plastic and so on), tree intrusion or misaligned joints.
