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.

It’s been a dry fall. Your catch basin still needs cleaning

Your parking lot, underground parkade and basement are suspect to drainage issues if debris is allowed to accumulate in the system.

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.  
 
This is where the experts at EdenFlo come in. At a minimum, your catch basin should be serviced at least once a year.  Whether your drain is in the middle of a surface parking lot, or in the basement of an underground parkade, a clogged catch basin can be a huge inconvenience.  Our fleet of specialized vacuum pump trucks will take care of your catch basin cleaning quickly and efficiently

Catch Basin Maintenance 101

When it rains, or there’s a sudden snow melt (rare here in the lower mainland, but possible), it’s essential that the infrastructure in an urban or suburban area is designed so that there’s somewhere for the water to go. Otherwise, it ends up pooling in basements and around building foundations, where it can cause costly damage and lead to structural problems, mould growth, and other unpleasant conditions.

Most areas use storm drains (intakes that are connected to municipal storm sewers) and catch basins (“holding areas” for water that can fill when there’s a lot of flow, and empty slowly later) for runoff management

It’s easy to forget about storm water management systems when it’s not raining, or when they’re working properly. The problem is that we don’t notice that there’s a problem until it’s too late – when the water is advancing on our homes and businesses, or filling up our basements.

You need to take stock of your storm water management systems when it’s not raining. Edenflo specializes in pump truck services on the lower mainland, and can help you keep your storm drains and catch basins free of debris, and your drains flowing. We operate British Columbia’s premiere pump-truck service, with high-pressure water jets to dislodge clogs and vacuum pumping to take them (and whatever else) away for environmentally responsible disposal. We even have a special “lowboy” unit that fits into lower spaces, like underground parking garages.

Edenflo provides emergency response and preventive maintenance services to both residential and commercial customers. If you’ve got storm sewers or catch basins on your property call us and we’ll offer advice and service that will keep you out of trouble when the skies start falling.

Have your Catch Basin cleaned and inspected by the experts at EdenFlo Vacuum Pump service.  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  and we’ll be happy to assist you.

 

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

Regular Catch Basin Cleaning, Even More Important In Rainy Season

Most lower mainland property owners and managers don’t realize the importance of regular catch basin cleaning until it is too late. As we continue with our rainy season, issues with catch basins can become more urgent. You may notice that water is pooling around some of your catch basins, indicating that there is debris and other matter that is slowing the drain process. As a rule, when debris and other matter makes up over one third of the catch basin’s capacity, it needs to be serviced. If the problem is ignored, the debris will start to overflow into the drainage pipes, creating a blockage that can lead to more trouble. 

Failure to clean your catch basins out regularly can cause other issues such as an unpleasant odour.  If you have a public parking lot, or you are a parkade owner, this is not good for business. In addition, when the debris warms in the spring, it becomes a perfect breeding ground for unwanted insects. 

Catch basins should be cleaned out on a regular basis.  Edenflo can set you up on a regular maintenance schedule which ensures that catch basin issues are minimized. 

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.
