What Kind of Problems Can a Plumbing Drain Camera Inspection Detect?

Even for professional plumbers, it can be difficult to detect what’s really going on in your plumbing system with the naked eye. How do you know what’s going on out of sight, below ground? That’s where plumbing camera inspection comes in. In order to diagnose the true cause of your plumbing issues, you need a plumbing company who has the right knowledge and the right technology to see what’s happening below ground level.

What is a Drain Camera Inspection?

Drain cameras have a small camera and light mounted on a flexible cable, which is fed into a home’s drain system to help provide insight regarding the health of their pipes, as well uncover the source of any existing issues. Our cameras have video recording capability, so you have access to a real-time walk-though of your drain system.

The best part of using a camera inspection is that it is a non-invasive method of getting to the source of the issue. No need to dig unnecessary holes or damage walls; the camera cable is simply fed into your home’s “cleanout” which allows for sewer access. A plumbing video camera inspection can help uncover those hard to identify problems that can occur out of plain sight. Here are some of the problems that a drain camera inspection can discover:

Exterior Foundation Waterproofing Techniques

Foundation WaterproofingBasement waterproofing is the only solution to keep water from getting into your basement and causing major structural damage, as well as mold, decay, and other moisture-related issues. Interior and/or exterior foundation waterproofing is required when ground water builds up in the soil raising the water table. This process causes hydrostatic pressure to occur and push against the walls and floors of your basement. Unless your basement is properly waterproofed, the water will force its way in through cracks in the foundation walls, openings caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint and up through the floor cracks.

As foundation waterproofing is necessary anytime a structure is built below or at ground level, which is the vast majority of cases, the industry has developed various foundation waterproofing techniques. Although interior waterproofing can also help solve part of the problems, it cannot prevent by itself severe damage. Exterior foundation waterproofing remains the only method recognized by the International Building Code as adequate for the prevention of wicking and molding of building materials.

Why You Should Install Flood Protection Devices in Your Basement

backflow-valveBeing the lowest part of your house, your basement bears the brunt damage when a flood or sewer backup occurs. A flooded basement does not only damage your home’s structure and your possessions, it also has the potential to encourage mold growth. After the recent flooding, the City of Toronto has taken several initiatives to encourage property owners to take the appropriate measures to minimize basement flooding. One of these measures is a financial subsidy of up to $3,200 per property to install flood protection devices, such as a backflow valves, sump pumps and pipe severance and capping.

What is a Sewer Backflow Valve?

A sewer backflow valve is a simple and effective flood protection mechanism for the basement. Placed at the point where the sewer exits the building, the valve allows sewage to flow smoothly out of the building but prevents it from flowing backward in case of an overflow. It is a one-way gate that opens only outwards and closes tightly as soon as there is a reverse flow. Since a single back valve is adequate for the entire building, installation, repair and maintenance is easier and a lot less costly.

The available subsidy to install a backwater valve is 80% of the total invoiced amount of up to $1,250. This includes the cost of the labour, materials, permit and taxes.
