We offer commercial sanitary services, including holding tank and treatment plant service and maintenance, cleaning and maintenance to sewer lines and pumping stations, and commercial vacuum services.

For those businesses with buildings to maintain, we offer storm drain and catch basin cleaning services, including “lowboy” truck service that’s able to get into underground parking lots and other hard-to-service areas.

Hydro Flushing Better Option Compared to Snake or Auger Type Cleaners

 
Using high speed / high pressure water to clear blockages in pipe systems is a better approach to cleaning and clearing blocked lines. Unlike conventional auger or snake type cleaners which tend to punch a hole in the existing blockage, hydro jetting/hydro flushing completely removes the blockage by scouring the inside of the pipe. Barring the possibility of a collapsed line, hydro-jetting will solve the problem. Using our video line inspection systems we are able to inspect and assess where the problem may be.

 The hydro-jetting process will clear the most stubborn line blockages and efficiently scour the entire pipe. This process should be a regular maintenance consideration for businesses such as parkaides, parking garages, restaurants, food processing operations and Property Managers for commercial and residential properties in Vancouver, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Buranby, New Westminster, Delta or White Rock.

Preventive Maintenance Series – Video Line Inspection

As part of our series on preventive maintenance for your plumbing, let’s take a look at Video Line Inspection.

In Video Line Inspection, an Edenflo service technician will use specialized CCTV video camera equipment to inspect your residential or commercial waste pipes up close and personal – from the inside, where it’s easy to spot the problems and take action before they cause an expensive problem.

Edenflo Video Line InspectionVideo line inspection can help us find all manner of plumbing problems. Most often, it will alert us to a developing clog situation, and we can use hydro flushing (located on the same truck as the camera equipment) to get rid of the buildup before it impedes the system’s function.

We occasionally find more serious problems that require more serious repair work. Because of Video Line Inspection’s ability to pinpoint the exact location of a problem, you’ll save money because it will reduce the amount of costly excavation needed to affect a repair.

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.

Edenflo’s technicians are armed with the technology and know-how to solve your problems and save you money.

Video Line Inspection – Find Out What’s REALLY Going On Underground

Video Line Inspection is a relatively new technology that’s been rapidly embraced by Edenflo as best way to diagnose a problem with a sewer system.

Video-line-inspection-blog

Our technicians are certified by Pipeline Assessment and Certification Program, which is widely accepted as the industry standard system for coding defects and construction features in pipes and sewers. They are able to determine exactly what, and where, the problem is in your septic or sewer drain with the use of a specially designed CCTV (closed circuit TV) camera. The camera is fed into the system, and can pinpoint problems, large and small, in the waste drains in your home or commercial premises.

Our expertise in the business of sewer and septic systems comes into play in interpreting the information the video provides. It’s dark down there, and everything tends to look kind of the same. Our experienced technicians can tell the subtle differences between a dirty pipe (and they’re all dirty) and a clog, or a weakened sidewall that’s leaking. Armed with the information that the video reconnaissance gives them, we can propose the most economical fix. In most cases, we can use our hydro-jet equipment to clear a clogged system quickly and efficiently, so you can get back to the things that are important to you.

In addition to diagnosing problems, Video Line Inspection can be used to evaluate the overall condition of your septic and sewer lines, a great idea as part of general preventive maintenance, and helpful when considering purchase of a resale property.

When to Use Video Line Inspections

Performing a pipe inspection using a video camera is the simplest way to produce a visual inspection in real-time of interior water lines and underground sewer pipes. Using a flexible cable that is fabricated out of fiber optics, with an attached high resolution camera positioned at the end of the cable, allows the technician to have a complete view of the inside of the pipe. This helps to evaluate the condition of the pipe, and locate any obstructions. Once the blockage has been verified, it can be removed by a variety of options, to ensure its proper function.

Evaluating the Sewer SystemEdenflo Video Line Inspection

There are many reasons why a consumer would use a sewer video inspection to determine the condition of a pipe. This might be an evaluation of the sewer system, before purchasing a home. It might also be used as a way to identify the layout of an existing underground sewer system before making any changes to the plumbing system by adding on an additional bathroom. It can also be used to quickly locate and identify any type of issue with the sewer system to determine the best possible way to perform the repairs properly and economically.

Visually Identify Problems
By utilizing a video line inspection, the structure owner can save on future repairs. The inspection can quickly locate any break, or collapse in the drain line, or visually identify any problem, including corrosion, a belly pipe, leaking joints, offset pipes, or a blockage. It offers the viable information to properly diagnose any plumbing issue or to confirm the pipe’s condition.

A visual video line inspection works in any application including industrial, commercial and residential structures. It offers one of the easiest solutions for maintaining sewage pipes in British Columbia. It provides a real-time solution, where the technician can view on the monitor exactly where and what the problem in the drain line is.

What is a Video Line Inspection?

A video line inspection of your plumbing just reminds us that we are indeed in the 21st century.

What is a video line inspection?

A video line inspection is done by septic tank companies or plumbers to check the pipes for any sewage problems. When doing video line inspections, plumbers will use a mini camera, usually connected to a wire to inspect pipes for blockages. When there are problems with the plumbing this is usually done to check the cause of the problem.

When is a video line inspection done?

Usually when a new family moves into a pre-owned home, and the new owners want to check the condition of the plumbing, they usually hire professional plumbers and ask them to use video line inspection to check the plumbing so that if there are any problems with the pipes they can have it fixed before the family officially moves in.

But video line inspection isn’t just done before a home is occupied. This should be done on a regular basis; it’s one of the simple ways from which we could see any problems in the sewage in order to prevent any big problems, which may arise in the future.

In the event of clogging, you just don’t ask the plumbers to unclog your pipes without really knowing the root of the problem. Ask them to do a video line inspection and see what solid object has clogged your pipes. Once you know the source of the problem you can better avoid these circumstances thus minimizing sewage problems in the future.

Should this be done regularly?

Yes, it should be done on a regular basis. More water usage means more water and waste going down the pipes and this also means more chances of your pipe getting clogged. So a regular video line inspection will minimize future sewage problems.

Buying a House – Septic System Inspections

Buying a house is more than just about comfort and aesthetics. If you are considering buying a house or moving to a new place, it important that you inspect the condition of the septic system as well. The septic system should be at its best. So before purchasing that house, here are some guides to help you inspect the septic system.

  • Look for a home inspection service company. Inspecting a septic system requires trainings and expertise. Looking at it by yourself will not do you any good. So hire an inspection company to do the job for you. They know how and what to look at the septic system, particularly the condition of the septic ground water. Remember the old saying? Leave it to the experts.
  • Septic systems may cost you a lot. One thing that hinders an individual from contracting the service of an inspection company is its cost. But this should not really restrain you. Consider the expenses as part of buying a house. If you are not going to spend for the septic system inspection, you might end up buying a house with an aging septic system, which you would have to replace in 3 or 5 years. At the end, spending for inspection will be less expensive than not inspecting the system at all.
  • Know more about the septic system. Yes, standing beside an opened septic tank may be difficult. But if you were buying a house, it would be wise if you will know more about that house’s septic systems by accompanying the inspectors during inspection. This will also assure that the inspector will do its job very well knowing that you are observing what is done.
  • Don’t trust the realtor’s report on the septic system. The seller of house usually includes a report on the status of the septic system. Do not trust this report, as this is more likely a bias one to get a good deal.

When buying a house, it is important that you inspect the septic system as well to know its condition. Inspection will give you idea to gauge on up to long the septic system will still last before replacing it.
