What’s Involved In Scarborough Sewer Backup Service?

Think of your home’s plumbing system like a ripple effect—if you fail to acknowledge and take responsibility for the minor clogs they will only grow larger and more difficult to eradicate. This will lead to the ultimate tidal wave—a sewage backup—and literally, drown out your home. But if you think on your feet and ask an expert plumber for the assistance you may be able to avoid a crisis situation.

Here are some of the verified techniques we use to remove drain sewer blockages that result in a sewer backup in Scarborough:

HydroScrub® Jetting

After doing a general inspection our plumbing professional may opt for a hydro jetting to blast away any intruding clogs using pressurized jets of water and maneuvering them through your home's wastewater lines into the city’s sewer disposal system. Plumbers position the head of the nozzle into a key access point on the drain line and slowly start to lower the hose into the line as the cleaning starts. The nozzle creates enough physical force to break off debris and remnants of the pipe’s walls and drag itself through the pipe during the cleaning process. By default, the added weight will pull the water and debris into the sewer.

Clogged Drain

As we said, most problems in sewer systems begin with your household's clogged drains, which if undealt with lead to further pressure on your main and lateral lines. Our plumbers utilize video camera inspection to detect the source of the clog and uses a burst of hydro jetting to eliminate it. There are numerous reasons that this blockage might appear, from food waste, strands of hair, skin flakes, soap scum to mineral deposit buildup on the walls of drain pipes, but you can rest assured that hydro jetting will eliminate blockage no matter the cause.
