Video Camera Inspection a Must To Find Blockage Problems

Video Camera line inspection is a valuable service for those in pump truck services and the plumbing industry. The CCTV video camera is a flexible rod that has a high-resolution camera at the end of it where the images are transmitted to a camera operator and recorded for viewing at a later time.

This tool allows technicians to see inside sewer lines and pipes, allowing technicians to be able to easily locate damage, cracks and other problems. Instead of digging up the sewer lines, the video camera allows the property owner to save money and mitigate future emergency maintenance by discovering the problem ahead of time.

Any foreign objects causing a blockage in your lines and pipes are also identifiable with the video camera.

If you are dealing with problems in your sewer lines and pipes, EdenFlo’s video camera inspection service is a cost-effective method that will save you money.

A plumbing system with a problem will tend to lead to other problems. Regular preventive maintenance is the key to reducing overall maintenance costs, and preventing disaster in the form of sewer back up and flooding.

Wherever your Lower mainland video inspection service needs are in Vancouver, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta or White Rock, EdenFlo provides the best video CCTV inspection service on time and on budget.

Edenflo offers a preventative maintenance program that can help you to keep your property in great shape and save you time and money, as well as promote increased efficiency.

This can be used to tackle your drain and sewer lines and get all of the silt, sand, and sludge out of them. This can be done on both small lines and large lines to ensure that things are not getting clogged and causing problems, such as backup which can result in costly and damaging flooding.

Hydro Excavation
This is a good method for getting tree stumps prepared for removal and creating landscaping features. You can also get digging done in areas that are difficult to get to and get the trenches dug for line installation.

Sump and Catch Basin Cleaning
Catch basins and sumps need to be maintained to prevent clogging and motor burnout and this service can get all of the debris, water, and sand out of your basin and sump. This will ensure that you do not have issues with your sump.

Video Camera Line Inspection
Knowing what is happening with your drain lines is not easy, but it has to be done or else you risk experiencing costly repairs and this service can get the inspection done quickly. Using this method will help you to save time, reduce damage, and decrease repair costs, according to Edenflo.

British Columbia Sump and Catch Basin Cleaning

Sump pumps need preventative maintenance to continue running smoothly and efficiently.  This machine assists the drainage system by removing liquids to help in preventing flooding and other high water issues.  When this system is not used often, you need to have maintenance done about every five years, but if you use it often or live in an area that is not good for this type of pump, such as somewhere with a lot of mud or sand, the maintenance should be done at least every year.

Why It Needs to Be Cleaned
The maintenance you have done on your sump pump and catch basin is to ensure that all gravel, dirt, and sand are properly and thoroughly cleaned out.  If you let these things build up they can end up in the sump pit and can break the pump or cause clogging.  It is important to have maintenance done so that clogs are not able to form and start causing problems.  When you have a clog there is a risk that the house will become completely flooded and the sump pump motor burned out.  In this type of scenario, you may not even be able to get to the pump and the problems will just continue to compound.

Getting the Sump Pump and Catch Basin Cleaning Done
It is important to choose a reputable company that will completely and efficiently remove sand and debris and the water from your culverts, sanitary and storm pump stations, sumps, and catch basins, according to EdenFlo.  When the work is done right you can rest assured that you should not experience issues like clogs so that your system will continue to work effectively and not cause you any problems or hassles.

The wastewater all around our communities are waterborne liquids and solids that have been discharged from commercial and residential properties. While they are an essential component to living in a community, they can cause significant issues when not handled properly.

Removing, Controlling and Treating Wastewater
In general, the philosophy of proper wastewater sanitation typically involves removing, controlling and treating the wastewater before allowing it to reconnect with the natural environment. Through an intelligent design, companies including Edenflo, follow the basic fundamentals to ensure that the wastewater collected helps to maintain an acceptable condition of nature.

The treatment of wastewater is a proven process were all of the solids contained in the water go through a process where their partially removed and partially decomposed, and eventually forming inorganic solid. At that point, all of the liquids are naturally disposed, leaving only the solids behind.

Wastewater disposal can happen in two different ways. The process can include service disposal, such as using it for irrigation as a non-potable liquid. It can also be reclaimed by the Earth using sub-surface disposal techniques where the treated non-potable water is allowed to penetrate below the surface.

Edenflo works hard to maintain the highest standards with our eco-friendly services to ensure the community that no wastewater is discharged on the surface waters including our estuaries, lakes and rivers. Our actions help to eliminate the creation of dissolved oxygen that can cause significant harm to the water and the environment.

Benefits of a Catch Basin

A catch basin allows rainwater collected on the streets to flow through underground pipes leading to sewer system. With a grate on top, a catch basin filters large debris from the road, ensuring that only water and smaller rubbish could fit through the slots.

Catch Basin Diagram

As an integral part of a municipal sewer system, the catch basin prevents roads from flooding. However, the catch basin itself could become clogged. A blocked catch basin is not effective in trapping debris and allowing water to flow freely through the drainpipes. Leaves, plastic and other objects could be stuck inside the basin, blocking off the passage of the water from roads.

Since the catch basin is used very often, it has to be cleaned regularly. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be able to serve its original function. An annual inspection should be done to see if the catch basin needs cleaning.

One way of knowing whether the basin should be cleaned is by looking at how much deposit has accumulated at the bottom. If the accumulated dirt is more than one-third the depth of the basin, then the catch basin needs to be cleaned. However, a weekly cleanup is required if trash has already found its way at the bottom of the basin.

The cleaning can be done either manually or by using an equipment. Vacuum pumps pull out the deposits, which are eventually disposed in landfills. Before the debris are thrown, a chemical analysis must first be conducted to check whether the hazardous waste is still within the EPA criteria. The analysis will dictate how the waste should be discarded.
