Lower Mainland’s Best Vacuum Truck Service…

Edenflo is the Lower Mainland’s first choice for residential and commercial vacuum truck services. Businesses and residential customers choose our service because we have a wide range of applications available, a large selection of available equipment, and experience in tackling all projects that involve vacuum truck services.

If you’re located in the lower mainland, we offer service to Food Service and Food Production clients, including Grease Trap cleaning service, as well as food and organic waste collection and disposal. We offer commercial sanitary services, including holding tanks, treatment plants and sanitary pump chambers. Call Edenflo to set up the regularly scheduled maintenance cleaning of your sanitary pump chambers.

For those businesses with buildings to maintain, we offer storm drain and catch basin cleaning service, including “Lowboy” truck service , enabling us to access underground parkades and other hard to reach locations.

When a problem occurs, we can positively diagnose blockages and other problems using Video Line Inspection technology, in which a camera is placed at the site of the problem, allowing us to see exactly what’s going on.

We also offer hydro excavation services, which appeal to a large number of clients in diverse industries. Hydro excavation is removal of dirt and other material by “digging” with a high-pressure water jet, and removal of the dislodged material with our vacuum truck. This allows us to unearth utility lines, underground pipes, and other services without disturbing them.

In addition to quick response when a problem arises, as your pipe service specialists, we’re able to offer expert preventative maintenance, so that you don’t have to solve problems, because you’ve avoided them.

It’s Still Dry in the Lower Mainland – Do I Need to Worry About my Catch Basin?

It’s been a dry summer and fall on the lower mainland. Dry conditions mean debris has less moisture content. Dry debris that has accumulated in your catch basins may still allow for a reasonable flow of wastewater through the system, but one big rain could change the picture.

Fall Twigs and Leaves Contribute to Catch Basin Back Ups in the Fall. 

Fall brings cooler weather, rain and the inevitable shedding of leaves. These leaves and other seasonal debris collect on the ground and eventually are transported to catch basins. Leaves and branches that collect around and in the catch basin become sticky and start to break, while attracting other debris that leads to accumulation of debris. Once this accumulation begins, it spells trouble for catch basin drainage.

Cleaning Catch Basins – Not a DIY Job…

The basics of cleaning a catch basin is to remove the debris  that may be blocking the flow of water. Even though it sounds simple, this is not something you should trust yourself to do on your own. Most of the catch basins in the lower mainland are very deep. Trying to scoop out the debris will not only challenge your senses (usually the debris will have a foul smell), but it can also result in a fall or a strain. If you don’t do this for a living like the pros at EdenFlo, you may be in for more than you bargained. EdenFlo has the right tools for the job, and they know the best practices to ensure that commercial drain flows are maximized.

As well, EdenFlo will do an inspection as they are servicing your catch basin to ensure the infrastructure is in good shape.

Rather than try to do it yourself, and then finding out that you will still need to make a call to EdenFlo to deal with a clog, get it done right the first time and put your mind at rest.

Now is the time to get your catch basins inspected and serviced. Edenflo offers the best service in Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Delta, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, Richmond and Lions Bay. Call the experts at 604 575 1414 or fill out our online request for your catch basin service

Four Steps to Manage the Cleaning and Maintenance of Catch Basins

If you are a new property manager, or just want to push the easy button when it comes to the cleaning and maintenance of your catch basin inventory, here is a four-step guide to set you up for success.

    1. Be on the lookout for potential problems with the catch basins or drains on properties under your management. Trouble may come in the form of water pooling around the basin, slow draining, or debris covering the grate. Catch basins that appear sunken into the asphalt or concrete are damaged and will need remediation. Cracks in the pavement around the drain is another problem area to look out for.
    2. A Preventive strategy to keep storm drains (catch basins) from clogging is the most effective method to protect your real estate. If you see debris on top of the grate, safely remove it.  A reminder to never attempt to remove the storm grate yourself, only the debris on top. Call the EdenFlo professionals if further action is required.
    3. If you see a catch basin that is not draining correctly on a well-used parking lot, or a blind corner in your underground parkade, do not attempt to clear it yourself. Instead, contact the experts at EdenFlo to manage the situation with safety first in mind.
    4. Have EdenFlo assess your catch basin cleaning needs to help you to be the most efficient with your maintenance spend.  Chances are, routine scheduled maintenance will eliminate all but the most unpredictable emergencies.
