Toronto Drain Repair Services By Local Plumbers
Santos Water Plumbing Service provides affordable drain repair services to Toronto, Mississauga and GTA residents. Drains will often collect materials or junk that are difficult to break down, such as debris, rags or mud. Excessive buildup will affect the flow of water through the drain and gradual settlement of clutter inside the drain will eventually lead to partial or full blockage.
Our team at Santos Water are committed to delivering quality plumbing and drain services. We have established a reputation for quality drain repair in Toronto, East York, North York, Mississauga and Scarborough. Equipped with current tools and technology, our experienced team of plumbers can aid you with all drain, plumbing and water-related services.
Our complete range of Toronto drain repair and plumbing services includes:
This service is a popular choice with our customers. When drains become blocked, water can rise to such a level that it will start oozing out from the floor opening of the drain. This is where a backwater valve comes in handy. It checks to see whether the drain is building up the flow of water in the opposite direction or not. If it does, it can prevent any possible sewage backup into your floor.
Drains are prone to leaks when pipes are infiltrated by roots of plants or trees underground. To prevent or repair this issue, the existing or affected pipe is lined with a PVC membrane that can withstand pressure and prevent leaks.
Drains usually come into contact with more than just water. This inevitably results in them clogging up with junk, which ultimately leads to blockage, infiltration or leaks and a needed drain repair. At Santos Water, we employ the best plumbing practices and equipment for all major or minor drain repair operations, including bathtub slow drain repairs and more.
Drain backup involves the discharge of the sewer from the drain pipe into the floor due to blockage. When the drain is suffering from heavy clogging, there is an increased risk of it backing up. Once it reaches the floor level, it will flow through to that opening. When such a scenario pops up, there is room for potential health risks when residents are exposed to sewer water.
When such a scenario pops up, then there is danger for the inhabitants of that place because the sewer water that backs-up is full of dirt and germs. Call our expert local plumbers for immediate drain backup repair.
We advise our customers to have their drains cleaned within a specific time frame to steer clear of issues. Drain problems, in most cases, arise due to blockages or a lack of cleanliness. During drain cleaning, we make use of techniques such as drain snaking or hydro-jetting to clean the insides of the drain. While drain snaking pushes the junk from its position and allows it to flow freely throughout the pipe, hydro-jetting is a more advanced technique that uses highly pressurized water to cut through even the hardest dirt sediments and debris. This method is especially popular with bathtub slow drain repairs and overall bathtub drain installations.
Drain snaking is an effective cleaning technique which is used against partially blocked drains. In this method, a steel or plastic wire is guided inside the drain with the help of a motor. This wire is then able to displace junk from its position. Once moved, the clutter then flows along with the stream of water, clearing the pipe of any blockage.
Building Trap Removal
Many of Toronto’s houses and buildings built before the 1950s had this type of fixture installed with their plumbing system. It performed an efficient function at the time, which was to keep gases and sewer smell out of the house. However, modern plumbing systems have proven to be more efficient. Over time, building traps have become the cause of blocked drains, infiltration, leaks and slow sewer operation. As such, it is necessary to remove them. Our plumbers can effectively remove building traps in just one day.
Drain Camera Inspection
Drains are affected by all sorts of irregularities, including infiltration and leaks. To repair them properly, we need to pinpoint the exact location and nature of the fault. Our CCTV cameras have proven to be handy with scoping out the exact area of the issue. We attach the camera to the end of a pipe and filter it into the drain. The video captured by the camera can be viewed by the plumber on a screen for inspection.
