Many people have experienced that dreaded moment of turning on a kitchen faucet or flushing the toilet only to stand there and watch as the water level rises high. While the situation is stressful, it’s not at all uncommon. Drain problems are a frequent headache for homeowners, but a trusted plumber in West Vancouver, BC, and nearby areas from Red Seal Drainage & Plumbing can help. We offer affordable plumbing inspection services to help you get your drains running smoothly again. We are committed to restoring your plumbing system’s efficiency and performance.
Common Drain Issues
As much as we wish drains and pipes stayed in peak condition all the time, that’s simply not the case. As a constantly working part of your home, your plumbing undergoes a lot of wear-and-tear. Your drains handle water, food waste, shampoo, soap, and hair on a daily basis. Throw in the freezing temperatures in West Vancouver during winter, and you can see why drains are prone to problems that require speedy repairs.
Here are a few of the most common drain issues you may experience:
- Clogs or buildup inside the pipes
- Frozen pipes during winter
- Leaky or dripping pipes
- Tree roots growing into pipes
Do you suspect your home is suffering from one or more of these problems? Then now is the perfect time to schedule a drain inspection from Red Seal Drainage & Plumbing.
Signs to Keep an Eye On
Just like the symptoms of a cold, your drains will also exhibit symptoms if they’re not healthy. Keep an eye out for these plumbing red flags:
- Water draining slowly in sinks, bathtubs, or showers
- Standing water that can’t drain properly
- Foul odor coming from the plumbing
- Overflowing sinks or toilets
- Dirty water backing up in the shower or other plumbing fixtures
- Unusual sounds like hissing or gurgling
If you notice any of the drain problems mentioned above, sewer inspection can help determine the cause.
Drain Inspection from the Experts
When our plumbers conduct a pipe inspection, they follow a careful step-by-step process to make sure they have an accurate understanding of the problem. One of the most accurate methods of pipe inspection is sewer camera inspection services. We typically use this method for severe clogs or damage like blockages or cracks deep within your home’s plumbing.
During sewer camera inspection services, we insert a high-resolution camera into a drain, down the drain line, and through the entire sewer line if necessary. The camera allows us to do a careful visual inspection of the pipes and pinpoint the location of the damage.
Importance of Having Your Drains Inspected
When something is amiss with your drains, it pays to have an inspection done sooner than later. A pipe inspection will help us diagnose the problem and shed light on the location of the problem in your plumbing system and the severity of the issue. By having your drain inspected, we’ll be able to restore your home’s plumbing service quickly and prevent the damage from spreading throughout your home.
