Water & Sewer Problems
Often owners aren’t aware a sewer or plumbing problem is developing until it’s too late. It’s very important to keep an eye on any warning signs because catching problems early means the difference between simple fixes and full replacements.
If you know your property has either a no corrode sewer line, call for an inspection before it’s too deterirated to repair.
Slow Draining Sinks, Showers, Tubs, and Washing Machines?
If you are experiencing drainage problems, it could be because your sewer line is clogged. Call Thuro to schedule a drain cleaning and experienced technicians will clear out any blockages and restore the flow.
After Thuro has cleaned your drains, we can also video inspect your sewer pipe to check if the slow drainage was caused by simple fixes like grease and build-ups or there is a bigger problem like root intrusion, a displaced joint, or even broken sections of sewer.
Having frequent back-ups?
Anything flushed or put down the drains will travel through your interior plumbing and then out your sewer line to either a City sewer main or some kind of septic tank. If that pipe becomes plugged from roots or blockages, everything going down your drain has no other way out then up and back out into the inside of your house. This is called a sewer back-up.
Sewer back-ups can start out very minor with minimal water evident around floor drains. If the pipe is left to get worse you may end up experiencing a full back-up. Large back-ups can be particularly expensive and difficult to remediate as sewage is hazardous waste. Don’t let this happen to you. If you have your main service cleaned frequently, contact Thuro for a sewer assessment. We offer a full range of sewer repairs and replacements.
Low or Irregular Water Pressure
Low water pressure, or higher than usual water usage bills? These are warning signs of a leaking water service. Homeowners should call the City of Calgary out to verify that there is in fact a leak. The City will come out with some testing equipment and let you know where the leak is.
If the water leak is on the City of Calgary side of the property line, a City crews will repair at generally no cost to the homeowner. If the leak is on the homeowner’s side of the property line, you may have to consider doing a repair.
Thuro has many trenchless technology options to replace water lines with minimal digging. Unlike traditional repairs, Thuro will replace your entire service and not just a piece for a comparable cost.
Tree roots are the leading cause of sewer back-ups
Did you know that tree roots absolutely love sewer lines? The flow inside sewers is mostly water, which trees need to grow. Roots are sneaky and can easily find a way into your sewer line through any small opening like a joint or crack. Once they’ve made their way in they continue to grow and eventually block off the sewer service completely.
Even though you may have had your sewer line augured out a few months ago, which fixed the problem then, roots are already established and will continue to grow back faster and thicker every time. This means you need to have a continuous cleaning schedule. The longer roots are left to grow into the sewer pipe the more damage they can cause like by joints open and even breaking the pipe joints in high growth seasons. Over-time this could lead to a full collapse of your sewer line. Thuro’s trenchless repair options like liners or pipe bursts permanently eliminate root issues.
Sink Holes Developing in Your Yard or Driveway?
Sink holes developing in yards or driveways could be evidence of either a sewer or water problem (we have seen cases where it’s both at the same time). If a hole in a sewer pipe develops, soil can fall into the pipe and is washed away into the sewer main. Over time a void is created around the pipe and as the dirt continues to wash away, the ground above the area sinks in.
