It’s just about Spring, which means a season with a mixture of sun and still lots of rain. The good news is, we can expect—and already are—having some warmer weather! Spring is a perfect and important time to prep your home for the summer, including cleaning up your drain tiles. The fall and winter seasons lead to more debris like leaves and dirt potentially clogging your drains.

Starting with a drain camera inspection is a great idea. Your plumbing equals an average of 15% of the value of your home, so your drainage system should be one of the first priorities.

5 reasons for having a drain camera inspection:

  1. It prevents small issues that could be forming, from becoming large problems.
  2. Inspecting your sewer and drainage system allows us to see the state of the drain tile.
  3. It extends the life of your system.
  4. It saves you money by knowing about potential problems and fixing them before they occur.

Cleaning your drainage system:

It is crucial to maintain your drain tiles by properly cleaning them every 12 to 18 months. If you have had a camera inspection and your plumber has informed you that your drains should be cleaned, there are two ways this can be done.

If the camera inspection shows that your pipes are not fully blocked, a Hydro Flushing machine will be used to restore the drain line back to full health.

If the inspection shows that your pipes are fully blocked, a power auger or cable machine is used first (i.e. snaking a clogged drain). This is followed with the Hydro Flushing machine.

So… what are you waiting for this spring? With the theme of Spring Cleaning, it’s the perfect time to take care of your drainage system, and keep your house in a healthy state.
