Hydro Jetting is a drain cleaning technique that properly releases any clogs in your drain or sewer line. This method of cleaning uses high pressure streams of water to remove build up and debris in sewers and drain lines. This water pressure ELIMINATES tree roots, grease, sand, and sediment that has built up in your drains 100% of the time! Hydro jetting removes stubborn clogs easily!
COLD WEATHER CAUSES SEWERS AND STORM DRAIN TO FREEZE
Winters can be brutal in Saskatchewan, but cold weather without sufficient snow cover for insulation is no friend to your sewer pipes or drain field. If your sewer line going to the main or your drain field freezes, will result in a sewer back-up in your basement or if you are in a acrage then your septic tank can’t drain properly and it will fill up. This, in turn, causes the line from the house to remain full of water, which then freezes. As this water freezes, it expands and puts pressure of more than 2,000 lbs. per square inch on the walls of your sewer lines. As you can imagine, this can produce major damage and real headaches.
We offer steam thawing services for frozen sewer lines that run from the house to the street main, under mobile trailers. In acreages, lines to the septic tank and from the tank to the discharged field or lagoon.
We also thaw frozen catch basins in parking lots.
PREPARE FOR COLD WEATHER
As a precautionary measure, if you are in an acrage, we suggest you insulate your drain field each fall. An 8” to 12” layer of mulch, such as hay or straw, will prevent frost from penetrating deep into the ground when there is insufficient snow cover, reducing the risk of a frozen drain field or sewer. Avoid driving over where the sewer line runs as it pushes frost down deeper.
