High Mark Plumbing can take care of your drain tile cleaning needs in Burnaby. Drain tile cleaning is essential to moving rain water away from the foundations of your home or from around your basement.
So what exactly is drain tile? Well, let’s start with what it is not. It is not the drain that runs from your home to the city sewer or your septic tank. In fact, it is one way to keep rainwater from mixing with your home’s effluent – something that you do not want to happen. Second, it is a drainage pipe that goes all the way around your house to help keep the foundations dry. It empties into a sump if your home is on level ground. If your home is on a slope, the water can simply be directed away from your house into the city rainwater drains or into a general waterway. One way to clean drain tiles is to use water blasting to clear out clogs caused by leaves or accumulated grime. If the clogging is more serious, such as might be caused by tree roots or the drain tile having been crushed, then more heroic measures will be needed. But not to worry! Modern technology, such as flexible pipe, tools made specifically to clear out tree roots and even running a camera down the pipe to see what is going on can come to the rescue.
