High Mark Plumbing has your Airdrie drain tile cleaning covered– which is an important part of your home maintenance. Drain tile cleaning is essential for keeping your perimeter drains, clear and running correctly. Perimeter drain tiles, which are often created using permeable pipes, help keep water away from your foundations and out of your basement.
One of the signs of clogged parameter drained tiles is water weeping down the walls of your basement or accumulating on the basement floor. If this is the location of your family or recreation room or some of the family members bedrooms, this can be quite a big deal. A long-term solution is to locate the blockage and to clean it out. There are many things that can cause blockage in perimeter drains. These include tree roots, gravel, and other debris off the roof running down through gutter systems, and even leaf and grass debris from your lawn. Technology has provided us with easy solutions, including being able to run a small camera down the line and take a look directly at the situation. Once the blockage is located a tool commonly called a snake is run down the drain line to clear out any debris. This is often followed up with flushing the line with water to make sure that it is flowing correctly. Another way to determine whether a drain tile system is working correctly is to put a non-toxic dye into the system and see if it is making its way to the primary storm drains on the street.
