Kanata Plumber As Inspector Gadget: Specialized Plumbing Tools And Techniques 

By definition, our skilled Kanata plumbers will conduct an extensive observation of your home’s plumbing fixtures, drain and vent systems, water pressure in your filtration systems, supply and drains lines, main shut-off valve, and more. Depending on what your plumber in Kanata discovers, they will set the best course of action. For example, for a nasty clogged drain, they will utilize a few key techniques. Your trained Kanata plumber is well-equipped with the appropriate tricks up their Mr. Rooter Plumbing sleeves and will try out a wide variety of solutions, from drain snaking to video camera inspection, soil probes, infrared detection, and pressure testing. For example, one combination they may use to get rid of a clog in your bathroom sink is video camera inspection and drain snakes. 

Your Kanata plumbers may not have X-ray vision, but a drain camera inspection is the next best thing. These specialized video cameras are small, waterproof cameras attached to a flexible cable and bright LED light, and these devices help determine your sewer line's condition. The camera is inserted in your drain lines and carefully navigated around the twists, turns, crevices, and bends until it encounters the location of the blockage. The live footage is displayed in real-time on a CCTV monitor for you to witness as your Kanata plumber points out the aftermath of the clog, including any cracks, fractures, and resulting leaks in your pipes. Apart from the clog, they may encounter other disastrous things like invading tree roots, too. 

After the drain line inspection, if your plumber in Kanata finds the clog is shallow, they will attempt to use an auger to drill through the blockage. A long, slender cable with a pointed end is interested in the drain pipes again, and once it encounters the blockage, it deeply penetrates it using a spiraling motion. Once it completely cinches the blockage, it slowly pulls backward, bringing it out towards the pipes. Although you can buy conventional and drill augers from your local home hardware store, it’s ill-advised as if you don’t have the proper hand-eye coordination or dexterity, you can readily damage and scuff your pipes. Plus, if you don’t do it properly, you may only break off bits and pieces of the clog and only loosen it rather than completely remove it. Instead, relying on an expert plumber to take care of this sticky situation. If augering doesn’t work, they have other innovative methods, for example, hydro jetting, to blast the clog away. 

How Your Kanata Plumber Handles Tree Roots Intrusion 

If your plumber encounters tree roots during the drain camera inspection, they will suggest removing them to prevent further complications. If large billowing canopies border the outskirts of your home, they are bound to one day invade your home’s sewer line. Because tree roots grow horizontally rather than vertically, they can grow a vast distance from the tree’s trunk deep underneath your home’s plumbing system. As soon as they detect humidity and moisture from a fractured pipe, these pesky tree roots expand onwards towards your drain pipes and wrap around only to pierce and picture your pipe’s walls. Once they’ve nestled into the pooled wastewater inside your pipes, they’ll use it as a source of nourishment and sustenance as the roots begin filling the full length of your drainage pipes. Not only will your pipes become suffocated, but the added pressure will make them rupture, resulting in further leaks. But no probs when you hire your professional plumber. Kanata homeowners will get valuable information from the drain camera inspection, during which we’ll suss out the root cause and the troublesome spot. Using high-pressure water jets, our skilled plumber in Kanata will effortlessly blast all the roots away. Hydro jetting breaks and snaps off these roots, leaving your drainage pipes clean and clear. If the damage is severe, we’ll go the extra mile to give your pipes the quick fix with a pipe repair, either a relining or busting service, as one of our specialization areas is trenchless sewer line repair or replacement.
