Drain Repair Service in Calgary

Do you breathe a sigh of relief whenever the water drains from your kitchen sink while rinsing off the dishes after dinner? Or maybe your bathroom sink no longer trickles away the murky and cloudy water basin every time you brush your teeth and wash your face first thing in the morning. Either way, sluggish water remaining at a standstill indicates something is wrong with your home's drainage system.

If you happen to notice other telltale signs of a broken pipe, such as hairline cracks and fractures, odd bubbling or gurgling noises, and random water puddles around your plumbing fixtures, including toilet, dishwasher, faucet, bathtub, and more—these all indicate you need a drain repair. Homeowners should not dawdle as a broken pipe will only make things worse as drainage problems are usually the result of accumulated debris which has resulted in a blockage which in and of itself consists of everyday household waste, including hair, skin flakes, soap scum, food leftovers and more.

As they say, leaks trigger more leaks and will only result in more difficult backups within your plumbing system and the more consistent plumbing repairs you'll need. So it's best to depend on a local, licensed, fully insured plumber from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Calgary for drain repairs, replacements, and maintenance services.

Our Expert Calgary Drain Repair Services

There is a reason why drain repair services are imperative rather than optional. If a clog is outright ignored, it will result in a ruptured pipe due to unresolved blockage and leakage. When left unattended, it can lead to a sewage backup as your drains cannot properly dispose of your home's used and dirty wastewater directly to the sewer lateral, eventually transporting the wastewater to the municipal sewage system.

If anything, any plumbing repairs you may have been complacent about will only escalate until your pipes break and require an expert drain repair. Homeowners must be proactive and resolve the plumbing issue before they open the floodgates to raw and contaminated wastewater being spewed into their humble abode. Not only will you have to deal with the aftermath of permanent and costly water damage and expose you and your family members to harmful mold and mildew growth, but you’ll also bargain away the structural integrity of your home.

Plumbing Inspection And Diagnosis

Before any drain repair, homeowners must note that our professional plumber must take the necessary steps to determine the best action for fixing a broken pipe. Sometimes a collapsed pipe may be reserved for a specific area of your pipe network or there may be fractures in multiple areas. Conducting a thorough assessment of your home's drainage pipes gives us a ballpark idea of how to proceed for the most results-oriented outcomes. We will observe, for example, plumbing fixtures, including toilets, bathtubs, showers, sinks, faucets, and water-based appliances such as your water heater. Moreover, we will check out the draining and venting systems and measure water and temperature levels on any filtration system, including your water softener. Finally, we will test out emergency mechanisms such as the main shutoff valve and sump pump to ensure your home won't accidentally flood.

Upon completion of the inspection, your plumber will provide you with a list of future recommendations for your drainage pipes. Although this service is optional rather than mandatory, we don’t suggest forgoing it as it can help our plumber gather the clues they need for a drain repair, for example, to calculate the severity of the damage and whether the clog is deeper or shallow in nature.

Video Camera Inspection

Many Calgarians perhaps wonder what is truly brewing inside the deep lagoons of their drainage pipes, yet they are always unnerved after they happen upon a tough clog. Mostly clogs crop up after we have flushed down liquid sludge and solid objects which should have been disposed of in the garbage or compost. Eventually, the leftover residue amasses into a tough clog that lurks deep within your drain line.

One way to suss out the location of a clog for a drain repair is to try out a video camera inspection. This advanced technology helps uncover where a clog is located and provides information on how we can best remove it. Our trained plumber will insert a small waterproof camera attached to a flexible cable and bright light into the cleanout pipe attached to the sewer line. The camera illuminates any debris in its path and is navigated through twists, bends, and crevices to record footage that is displayed in real-time on a CCTV monitor for you to observe. As it travels through your drainage pipes, it transmits a signal receiver whose purpose is to decipher more minor clogs from bigger ones, allowing your local plumber to prioritize a drain repair.

You will find that a drain repair service will be more effective as our plumber can use the valuable clues to determine the whereabouts of a clogged drain and uncover any cracks or fractures that may have resulted in a hidden leak and require the following drain repair or replacement service.

Pipe Relining

If we have decided after a plumbing and drain camera inspection that it's inevitable you require a drain repair. You can expect us to use cutting-edge, non-invasive methods to access drainage pipes. So you don't need to fret about a big, muddy trench being dug across the outskirts of your backyard! After the drain camera inspection, your plumber may conclude the damage is fairly minor and reserved explicitly for minor cracks or holes. And so, they will perform a pipe relining service for a drain repair. We will insert a flexible tube that spans the entirety of the pipe. The tube itself contains a flexible and inflatable pouch, which, once aligned to the old pipe, will be blown up enough so that it pushes up against the walls of the old wastewater drainage pipe. Eventually, the lining itself will cure and harden in place and, once removed, leave behind a robust and durable new lining without any damage. If anything, during a drain repair, you will discover that this pipe replacement tactic is infallible and won't collapse again anytime soon.

Pipe Bursting

Sometimes a nasty clog has wreaked too much havoc on your drainage pipes, and you require a bit more elbow grease. If our footage illustrates that the damage is extensive, our plumber will opt for a pipe bursting for your drain repair to replace the old pipe with a brand new one completely. The plumber will thread a new pipe atop the old one and at most make a couple of incisions to access the pipe. But first, they will get rid of the damaged parts of the old pipe using hydraulics, breaking apart bits and pieces of it to make space for new piping. Surprisingly it's a smooth procedure and can be completed within a standard business day, so there's no need to relocate temporarily.

FAQs About Drain Repair Services

Can You Fix a Damaged Drain Without Digging?

Yes—as previously mentioned, we can perform an expert drain repair and repair drainage pipes through relining when needed. Even if the pipe is hidden well beneath your property near the sewer lateral, we have the professional equipment to pinpoint its location and utilize non-invasive methods that don’t require physical digging to access the broken pipe. If we find the clog can be dislodged easily, we will utilize a highly pressurized stream of water to flush out the damaged pipe and remove any debris, residue, and limescale deposits.

Does My Homeowners Insurance Cover Drain Repairs in Calgary?

Our customers are advised to check these details with their insurance company. Homeowners insurance will sometimes provide coverage for a burst pipe that has caused irreversible damage to your home and personal property, including any belongings. Oftentimes, however, basic homeowners insurance doesn't cover the cost of an actual drain repair service. That includes a blockage which is preventing the flow of water out of your home.

What Is The Best Pipe Material For Underground Drainage?

Most modern homes in Calgary use Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), which is a plastic-based material that is affordable, strong, and durable. It can handle fluctuating temperatures and withstand heavy pressure. There are other varieties of materials, such as copper, but they are more expensive to install.
