Vintage Bathrooms

Don't do it yourself!

If you are not skilled to do a work, don't do it! Yesterday we had a homeowner who did the main line cleaning by himself. The result was that he break through his wall with the rodding machine blade. Instead to rod the main line he rodded the kitchen drain. Of course all of this from outside catch basin. The conclusion is: he called the professional. Cleaning a main line seems to be easy, but is not!

Before and after

The rotten drain from first picture has been install few years ago. Heavy duty material. Not so good quality. In the second picture new trap recently installed.


Drain tile and sump pump

With recently floods, many people started to reconsider the safety for their houses. A house without sump pump and drain tiles is expose at flooding. One of the recent customer wanted to install drain tiles and sump pump to protect in the future his house against the flooding. We present few pictures. At the end the customer was happy and confident the rain will not be a problem for him anymore.

Sometimes the work with camera is not so easy. Recently we have a job up on the roof where we have to camera few roof drains and vent stack. The work hard but the view wonderful.

Trench less or digging!?

Trench less.
1. If the property has a nice yard is the best solution for spout repair or the whole line repair.
2. The best way  for re-lining is to have full size clean out, preferably out side.
3. Before you accept the re lining it will be better to have  another opinion from other company.
4. The best for correcting the transition between cast iron or duct iron pipe which go through foundation and old clay tile which runs under the yard to city sewer.
1. If the main line has belly and you want to correct the issue than digging is probably the solution.
2. If you have several cracks, missing section of pipe, with huge gap between pipes the digging is your way.
3. If you have inside clean out and worse not at all, will be better to consider having outside clean out.
4. Because the trench less or under other name the re lining is a new technology and we don't know how the new line will last.
