Plumbing Inspection Services
If you suspect you have a problem with your plumbing it’s always a good idea to call on a professional plumber to come and perform a full inspection. It’s been reported that the average homeowner will let a leaking faucet leak for at least 6 months before doing something about it – that is a lot of water wasted down the drain. By calling a pro plumber to come and fix it fast these people could have saved a lot of money.
There are a variety of circumstances when inspections can help to save money and solve plumbing problems fast. Our inspection services include:
Drain Camera Inspection
Utilizing the latest in plumbing technology, our plumbers can see your drain or sewer with unprecedented detail. A CCTV drain camera is a full-HD camera on the end of a long cable. The cable is inserted into your drain and the video is displayed on a monitor for the plumber to see, various aspects of information are recorded such as the length of the cable deployed and audio in some cases. This allows us to see all of the imperfections or problems that may be present such as:
- Blockages and clogs in the pipes
- Breaks, fractures, cracks, or other structural damage
- Insect, animal, or root infestation
- Sag, belly, or settled areas of sewer or drain pipes
With this information, we can then diagnose and repair these problems with ease. Camera inspection is also a very useful tool to inspect repairs after they have been performed to ensure they have been done correctly. You can rely on the experienced professionals from Absolute Draining & Plumbing for your drain camera inspection needs.
Water Leak Detection
Discovering leaks is a very important aspect of home and plumbing maintenance. If you suspect you have a leak consult with us, our professional plumbers are very experienced in a variety of leak detection procedures and circumstances.
One of the most obvious signs that a property or homeowner has a leak is an unusually high water bill; since you typically use about the same water every given period if it suddenly jumps in usage with no other plausible explanation it must be because of a new water leak. Finding a water leak can be quite difficult for someone who has no experience in this area.
What should you do if you suspect you have a water leak? Calling in a professional to perform a systematic leak detection process is always advisable since you can be sure that the leak has been found and any associated problems addressed.
Installation of Plumbing Fixtures
A very common part of our plumbing service is the installation of plumbing fixtures such as faucets, showerheads, and new taps. There are many reasons to install new fixtures, some people need to replace old and ageing fixtures that have seen better days and other people just want to update the look of their bathroom or kitchen.
We also provide dishwasher installation services. Installing a dishwasher can be a daunting task for many homeowners and that is why we strongly recommend that you hire a professional to do the job for you. In many cases, an improperly installed dishwasher can lead to a lot of problems down the road such as improperly made connections causing leaks leading to many other associated problems. It’s always a good idea if you’re unsure of a plumbing task to hire a pro to do it for you.
Sink and Faucet Installation
We provide full sink and faucet installation services to the entire GTA. We can remove your old sink and faucet and replace them with fantastic new fixtures. This is ideal for either upgrading the look of your kitchen or bathroom, or replacing your old worn out fixtures. There are quite a number of amazing new fixtures on the market these days, such as faucets that turn on and off by simply touching them so it’s no wonder that people are interested in these new fixtures.
Water Service Upgrades
One of our specialties over the years has been providing water service upgrades for properties all over the GTA. Upgrading a properties water service has become popular for a variety of reasons:
Lead Pipe Removal
The majority of properties built before the 1950s have lead pipes in their plumbing. The removal of lead pipes is important to ensure there is no contamination in a properties water supply. This is especially a concern for homes where pregnant women or children may be consuming lead-contaminated water.
Increase Water Pressure
Fixing low water pressure is a concern for many homeowners. As the years pass more homes are being renovated to include plumbing infrastructure that places a higher demand on the existing water supply, for instance, the addition of hot tubs, showers, bathrooms, kitchens, and dishwashers. Sometimes all it takes is someone to be using the shower, watering the grass, and doing a load of dishes in the dishwasher and you’ve got hardly any water pressure at all.
Increasing your water pressure, when it is caused by a lack of water supply and high demand, is as simple as increasing the diameter of the water service pipes that connect your home to the City water mains. This allows for more water to pass to your property meeting the needs of your home.
Toronto Water Meter Program Compliance
The City of Toronto has decided to upgrade their water meters to a new meter that allows them to remotely take water readings. One of the requirements is that the water service must not have lead pipes or galvanized pipes, otherwise, these new water meters leak and have other problems. This means there are quite a number of homeowners that must upgrade their water service to meet these needs.
New Water Service Installation
Perhaps you’re expanding the infrastructure on your property or having a new home built? In such a case you will need new water service installed to deliver clean, fresh water to your home or new building. The GTA has fairly stringent bylaws that must be adhered to when installing new water service and that is why seeking an insured, licensed plumber should be a priority for all new homeowners and builders.
We perform all plumbing rough-in services. What exactly is a plumbing rough-in? During the construction of a new home or building, once the carpenters and builders have completed the majority of their work has been completed the plumbing needs to be installed before the walls, floors, and bulkheads are closed up.
This phase of the plumbing installation is referred to as the rough-in plumbing because there are typically no finish aspects being installed such as faucets, sinks, or toilets being installed during the rough-in. Coordinating the plumbing rough-in with a visit from the building inspector is fairly common to ensure that all elements have been installed in accordance with the building code.
Thawing Frozen Water Pipes
The climate in the City of Toronto is definitely on the colder side, especially during the winter months where temperatures can reach -20 degrees Celcius. Pipes that are located outside, under a crawlspace, or in unheated areas such as basements are very susceptible to becoming frozen. When water freezes it also expands, which can lead to burst pipes. If you happen to have a pipe that’s frozen there are ways to go about thawing them that are safe and low-risk.
We provide full pipe thawing services; if you are experiencing an issue with frozen pipes we will solve your problem.
★★★★★ Experience 5-Star Customer Service from Absolute Draining & Plumbing
- Drain Repair
★★★★★ Andrew came and inspected my exterior drain. He was professional, pleasant and punctual. Using a drain camera he showed us what the issues were and made recommendations of how to remedy our issues. We made an appointment and the work was done on schedule and as per the quote he gave us. I would highly recommend their services. Very happy with their work.
- Sewer Replacement
★★★★★ They were very professional, quick and best priced draining and plumbing company I called. They were honest with what they saw in my basement plumbing and did not push to upsell any additional work. They gave great advice as to what to keep an eye out regarding my old plumbing in the future and I appreciated the honesty. They replaced my sewage piping from the stack to the edge of my property (big job) and were in and out of my house in a few days and cleaned up very well!
- Backwater Valve Installation
★★★★★ Andy (the estimator) was terrific. Showed up exactly when he said he would and gave me (and my son) great advice on how to maintain the work they put in at our house. Crews were a little late on starting but stayed until the job was finished. What I thought was going to be a 2 - 3 day job (installation of a Back Flow Valve) was completed and inspected in 1 day! Will definitely use them again.
