Drains are such an important part of a functioning house. When one stops draining or begins to leak, things can really grind to a halt. Not to worry! POM Plumbing is here to help. We can do both drain repair and replacement depending on what’s needed.
Assessing the Problem
The first thing we’ll do when called for help is fine out what the problem is. A leaking drain could be an easy fix. However, if you’re drain is old and has bad sediment buildup, it may need to be replaced.
Our staff will be ready to find out the extent of the problem in a professional and friendly manner. We take pride in professionalism and efficient work. That’s what makes us the best choice for drain repair in Toronto.
Drain repairs can come in a number of ways, all depending on the problem. Sometimes a drain pipe will get small cracks in it. A rubber sleeve that fits around the pipe can often fix these. It keeps the cracks from leaking and strengthens the pipe, keeping damage from getting worse.
If your drain has stopped draining, repairing it might be a matter of clearing out debris with a snake or by removing the pipe for cleaning. Remember: don’t use chemical drain cleaners! Chemical drain cleaners may temporarily make your drain work better, but they do lasting damage to your pipes. The chemicals can eat through your pipes, virtually guaranteeing the need for replacement a few years down the line.
If it’s not possible to repair the damage your pipes have sustained, POM Plumbing can replace them instead. Replacing a drain can vary in cost depending on how damaged it is and where it’s located. It’s a bit harder to replace drain pipes that run into the walls or underground.
In these instances, we’ll make sure there’s actual damage, rather than a block. We can do this with a camera inspection or just go straight to snaking. In many cases, a snake will resolve a blockage. Underground pipes that have collapsed, however, will need to be dug up. Digging up drain pipes to replace them can be more time consuming and emotionally taxing. After all, most people don’t enjoy having part of their yard torn into.
Our professional staff will make the process as painless as possible. They’ve dug up pipes countless times and know how to do it quickly and cleanly. Your drain pipes will be replaced and water will be draining fast before you know it.
If you’re having trouble with your drain, give us a call at POM Plumbing and we’ll send someone out to help! If you have any questions, we’d love to answer them for you. Our policy is being transparent about any plumbing processes you might have to go through.
