Sewer and Drain Replacement
Sewer and drainage issues are an everyday affair for a common Toronto household. Even in case of a commercial estate owner, a pipeline blockage or leakage issues are inevitable. To save the situation, your first step should be to hire an experienced city of Toronto licensed plumber.
Due to lack of regular detection and repair of the drainage system the sewer pipes steadily get contaminated. One of the reasons can be breakage in the sewerage pipe. Failure of regular servicing leads to unnecessary water problems, underground water contamination and floods. Caution leads to a healthy underground drainage system. Most Toronto plumbing companies make use of two common methods of repair and replacement of the drain and sewer systems. The two systems used are the traditional method and the trenchless repair method.
Based on the condition of the sewer, the plumbing service provider decides upon their technique of treatment.
Traditional method: Step by step
> ‘Open cut’ or the ‘trenching techniques’ are used to mend the spot.
> Backhoe, the ideal equipment for such situation, is used to take care of sewer issues.
> The plumbing service provider marks off the place with the yellow hazard tape to avoid accidents.
> As soon as the affected sewer or drainage system is excavated, the plumbers initiate the installation of a new pipeline that would replace the entire drainage system of that particular location.
> While installing the new pipeline, the plumber uses grease or glue in order to fit in the sections of drain pipe into the excavation.
Traditional method: Pros and Cons
Traditional method could be a matter of headache at times. The open cut operation might block the passage way next to your building. The traditional method is the most favorable mode of operation in the countryside. However, for the busy roads and side-walks, the trenchless repair method is favorable.
> Two holes are made at the two ends of the pipe.
> The leak-proof new sewer pipe is inserted in place of the old broken one.
> Most of the Toronto plumbing companies use hydraulic pipes to replace the affected ones. This system makes it easier to replace old pipes in the drainage system.
> As in the open cut process a bedding of sand is required to place the new sewer line but the automated pipe relining process does not require a sand bed.
However, not all plumbing companies are trustworthy. You need to perform a thorough research to hire the best Toronto plumber for your job. The best way to choose your plumbing company is by asking your friends and neighbors who have already worked with them or check the testimonials of the plumbing company you found online. Never strike a deal orally. Have all the paper work ready prior to the initiation of the job. Ensure that the plumbing company you chose is properly licensed and insured. Ask for their 24/7 contact number and take a glimpse at their market reputation and the service assurance documents before hiring them. Even when you are in a crisis, it is always better to carry out a thorough research on these companies to avoid being duped. It’s better to hire only renowned and professional contractors like Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing for the job
