High Mark Pluming has your drain tile repair in Okotoks, Calgary AB. Drain tiles are often associated with the so-called French drains used to draw off unwanted ground water and direct it to a storm drain where it is unlikely to mix with sewer drains.
The French drain was named after a farmer who discovered that if he placed a perforated pipe in a swampy area that he could direct the liquid to some other location, encouraging it to flow into a natural water way rather than into a sewage drain. Modern drain tiles are often made from a flexible, perforated material that works in the same way as the drain tiles used by French. There is one major difference: with proper surveying, we might very well be able to install a drain without the extensive digging that was once necessary. All it takes is a powered auger on a flexible line. If an existing drain tile is damaged, a fiber-optic camera can be run down into the lines to create video of what is going on down there. Often running a auger through the line is all that will be needed, but if it needs repaired or replaced, a length of flexible pipe can be collapsed, then pulled into place using a light line. It is then expanded, repairing the broken or damaged area.
