Drain Repairs In Toronto

Repairing a drain is generally considered to be an annoying process that requires technical knowledge to be carried out correctly. After all, a drain can be damaged in many different ways and determining what caused the issue in the first place will take some time. Many are lead to believe that the most common cause of a broken drain is a blockage, and that is correct in most cases.

There are many unblocking techniques that can be used to unblock the drain. The damage done to the pipe in such cases is minor so there’s nothing to be worried about. The most common things our experts have to deal with are unstable joints and small cracks that can be easily fixed by a CIPP drain repair.

Yet, in some cases, the problem is much more serious. From surface works to ground movements to major root ingresses, all this can severely damage your pipework. Such issues require immediate assessment as time won’t wait. If you have any of the issues mentioned above, we have solutions.

How Do You Repair A Collapsed Drain?

No repair is carried out without a proper examination. Hence why the specialists at A&Y Construction Group carry out a CCTV drain survey. This survey will not only locate the issue but will help determine what exactly caused the damage in the first place. Once this information is collected, our team chooses the best course of action for your particular case as there is no such thing as a “one shoe fits all” solution when it comes to drain repairs. Typically, if the situation isn’t dire, a “no-dig” drain repair is carried out. In most cases, it’s a structural patch lining as it is not only inexpensive but also gentle. It will cause little to no disruption to your home or office. Yet, there are times when an excavation coupled with a replacement work is required to fix the issue. Our engineers are experienced, trained, and licensed to perform such complex operations in an efficient and reliable manner.

Signs Of A Collapsed Drain

Often, our customers call us when things are so bad that excavation is mandatory. Hence why we prepared a list of common signs that your drain collapsed. These simple tips will not only allow you to detect the issue early on but will help you minimize the potential damage to your property.

Foul Odor

The number one sign that something is going on with your drain is a foul odor. It is pretty hard to miss it as it spreads like wildfire. This smell most likely means that you have a blockage. You can use common unblocking techniques to remove the block but if the smell persists, it means that the pipe is damaged somewhere.

Constant Blockages

If you are constantly fixing backups of sewage, then you are most likely having a collapsed drain that needs immediate attention. Don’t wait for it to “go away” as the more you wait, the more damage is done.

Damp Or Mold

Rule of thumb, if the flow of the water throughout your entire property is disturbed by wastewater damp patches, then you are having a damaged drain. This further proves if you start to see mold on certain parts of your wall.

Slow Drains

A slow drain is not only frustrating but indicates that there is drain blockage. If you’ve fixed the block but the drain remains slow, you are most likely having something more serious. We suggest that you opt to use a CCTV drain survey to identify what exactly is causing the issue.

How To Prevent Clogged Drains

Now that you’ve learned about the different signs that your drain is clogged, let’s learn how to prevent a clogged drain. So, first thing first, drain repairs are inevitable unless you don’t use your waterway system. Things such as flushing the toilet, taking a shower, washing the dishes can be the cause of your clogged drain. The number one preventive measure you can do is call a specialist from time to time to inspect your drain. That way, you will prolong the life of your wastewater system, as well as save money when things go south. After all, nothing lasts forever and things will break but it’s cheaper to replace/fix certain parts than swap the whole system. The second best practice is to use food and hair stoppers. These simple inexpensive devices will prevent food scraps and hair from entering to your drainpipes. They aren’t perfect and they will not solve all your pipe issues but they will make a difference in the long run. Last but not least, we recommend that you stop putting grease down your drains. We understand that it is easier to pour hot water over your pan, but you have to understand that this habit leads to clogs. Grease accumulates and forms a hard-to-unblock clog that will require professional help to remove.

Trenchless & No-Dig Repairs

Not every case can be solved using a trenchless or no-dig repair solution. But those that can be solved that way usually don’t take a very long time. The main benefit of such a repair is that it does not require excavation. How? Simple, we are using liners that can be inserted inside the pipe. The liner itself is impregnated with resin that is later inflated where the crack/hole is present. Once the resin sets firmly, we remove the inflation mechanism and do the finalizing work. And that’s pretty much it, your drain is restored and ready to be used and no excavation is required. This method has many benefits but the general consensus is that such repairs are long-lasting. The resin that is used can withstand the test of time. Upwards of 50 years, you can rest assured knowing that everything will work as intended. The repair itself is arguably cheaper than the installation of a new pipe. The reason why it’s cheaper is that the average time it takes to replace the pipe is significantly lower than using the no-dig method.
