High Mark Plumbing can help with your West End Vancouver BC sewer main replacement. Sewer connections and services are a vital part of your home infrastructure. As of 2015, all new sewer connections require a permit – and the connection is prepaid as part of the permit fee.
Often, we don’t think about sewer connections until the toilet fails to flush or the sinks and bathtubs drain slowly or until we are building something new. Then it becomes essential to pay attention to what is going on with the plumbing. City planners don’t have that luxury. The City of Vancouver has more than 25,000 manholes, around 100,000 sewer connections, and around 935 kilometers of sewer line – in varying stages of construction and repair. Now, that’s a lot of plumbing! More than that, there is an ongoing effort to improve the infrastructure, making it more “green,” including separating sewer and rainwater drains. When home or business owners connect to the infrastructure, they are responsible for the part of the sewer that runs across their property from their buildings to the sewer line. You can do your part by installing separate sewer and groundwater drains as part of your infrastructure, and by maintaining your sewer line. We are here to help with that process.
Call High Mark Plumbing at (604)945-6060 to learn more about planning a West End Vancouver BC sewer main replacement for your home or business. Our skilled field technicians can repair or replace old sewer lines, often with minimal digging thanks to new technology, such as powered augers and fiber-optic cameras. Don’t forget to call your utilities to learn where existing underground utilities are located before doing any digging. No one loves a plumber who digs into a gas line or a telephone connection – we like to avoid doing that.
