Buying a new home is an exciting experience. You can finally experience the pride and satisfaction of homeownership.
At DrainCom, we have been providing drain services for homeowners in Toronto and the GTA and we know through our extensive experience how important the drain system of your new home is.
We also know how intrusive and how expensive the repairs can be.
DrainCom highly recommends to new homeowners to have video camera inspection of your drains arranged with your home inspection.
Even if the previous owners have never had any problems with the drains it does not mean that you do not have to worry about the drains and do not have to have the video camera inspection of the drains.
Drains problems could start at anytime and can turn the excitement of homeownership into a nightmare.
The elements of this nightmare could be:
a flooded basement,
backed up drains,
a very strong sewage smell in the house,
ruined furniture and damaged floors.
At a majority of older homes in Toronto, the sanitary and storm sewer systems are combined together which means the basement can be severely flooded during heavy rain.
Given the weather conditions in the GTA these last couple of years, this remains a highly likely occurrence.
We at DrainCom recommend video camera inspection of the drain system not only for older homes but for newer houses as well.
Video: Drain Camera Inspection
With the camera not only can Draincom specialists see the problem but also give a pretty darn accurate assessment of how far out it is and know where to dig. In most cases they will also know what material was installed on your property by the type of connector used to join the pipes.
This is to make sure that nothing is stuck inside of the drain pipe which would stop the flow and in turn cause a backed up drain and flooding.
It is much better to rest assured after a complete drain inspection rather than take a gamble.
Normally, video camera inspection of drains takes 1 to 2 hours with a cost ranging from $160 to $240.
This is certainly a low cost preventative measure compared to the high cost of flood damage.
