People do not often think about their catch basins or sump pits. Like other components in your plumbing system, as long as they are functioning effectively, what reason do you have to worry?
A catch basin simply needs to be able to accept storm water and filter it down into the corresponding watershed or into the sewer. These structures are a vital part of the city plumbing system in Toronto, preventing flooding and contamination.
The problem is, many people and businesses allow their catch basins to work until there is a backup, which has the potential to cause damage. With regular catch basin cleaning for our Toronto customers, we are able to prevent this kind of damage, and to save costs when this regular maintenance allows technicians to spot problems before they arise, and to conduct minor, cost-effective repairs instead of large, expensive repairs later on.
Similar problems can be avoided when it comes to sump pump maintenance. Sump pumps generally last for around 10 years, but require basic, regular maintenance in order to prolong their operational lives and avoid a catastrophe if a major need arises.
By having a professional conduct regular inspections to catch debris in the basin, inspect the check valve, clean the system, and ensure the backup power source is functional, you can prevent problems and costly repairs. We provide thorough sump pit cleaning and inspection services in order to help our customers in the long-run. This allows you to save thousands in costly repairs and prolongs the life of your systems.
