Inspect Drain Clog

You also need to consider how deep the clog is in your drain. You should only need a plumber to do drain repair in Toronto if the clog is in your toilet, bathtub or any drain in your home. It’s better to call a plumber if the clog is more than 2 inches deep. Also, you need to consider if the drain has an unusual odour. Next, it’s important to examine your drain properly. To get the clog out, you should not use your hand or wrench. Instead, you should hold the end of the plunger firmly between the pipes and slowly pull it back. If the drain is clogged, try removing it with the help of a wrench.  However, if you see a red stain on the wall behind the drain, you can use a vacuum to suck out the water from the drain. Then, clean it with a paper towel to make sure that it is completely dry before calling a drain repair specialist. If you see signs of damage to the walls of the drain, you can call a drain repair expert. They can inspect the drain to find out what is causing the problem and help you fix it.

Clean Clogged Drain

The drain specialist will use the plumber’s plunger to clear away the water. After the plumber is done removing the water, they can determine the reason why the drain is clogged. By understanding the reason behind the clog, they can recommend the right drain repair method. If you do not want to call a professional drain repair plumber, you can use an inexpensive tool called a snake drain auger. These tools are commonly available at the hardware store or even at your local home improvement store. Using a snake auger to unclog a drain is not recommended. If you want to unclog your drain without using a professional tool, you can use a plunger to unclog a drain. However, you need to be very careful while using this tool because it has the potential to cause severe damage to your plumbing if you don’t handle it properly.

How To Fix A Clogged Drain With Aquatech

Prevent A Drain Clog

Before hiring a drain repair specialist, you should know that there are some things that you can do to prevent damage and expenses related to drain repair in Toronto. One of them is to make sure that you change the water level frequently. The drain is always filled with water and it’s important to keep it free of debris or objects that could be blocking it.

You may have noticed that after draining a toilet or sink, a puddle of water appears at the bottom of the drain. To prevent this, you can place a pot or pan of water beside the drain. This will prevent the water from overflowing so that it can be drained away quickly.

How To Keep Drains Clean

Another way to unclog a drain is to empty the contents of a bathtub and rinse the sink thoroughly with warm water and soap. This way, the soap will get trapped in the drain and not be able to clog your drain. When you wash the sink, don’t forget to rinse the drain as well because it also contains soap and water. Aside from using the plunger, drain repair Toronto in Toronto is simple and you don’t need to be a professional to fix this problem. But do not let this task fall to chance because it can cause serious damage to your drains.

Aquatech was wonderful right from the first contact to having Richard come out and give us a very complete and detailed quote to the two man crew who were here exactly on time and completed the day hours ahead of time. All the locates were taken care of and within a week of contacting them the job was completed. The workman did a fabulous job and were very respectful of our property. They reviewed the scope of the work before they started and asked if we had any questions. When the work was complete it was difficult to see where they had worked and dug the trench. Everything was tidier than before they started. We are very impressed and in a world where household repair companies can be less than favourable, Aquatech stands head and shoulders above any of them. We would highly recommend this company. We also have a life time transferable warranty too. Bravo. We will definitely be telling all the people we know about our wonderful experience. Thank you.

We had a flood disaster the day after we got the keys for our new home. Aquatech Waterproofing responded to my request for help quickly and came to access the damages the same day. They gave us several options for repairs as well as prevention that were fairly priced and a quick turnaround time. They executed our chosen plan quickly and did a beautiful job. They have been very responsive, answering questions about the products we chose and we recommend them to anyone that needs quality work done in a timely manner. Very compassionate and empathetic for our situation as well.

I had some questions and Igor explained everything to me with no problem. I highly recommend this company. Thank you AquaTech!

EXCELLENT experience. Andrew was the first one to arrive and was extremely kind and helpful. Igor and Basil joined Andrew a few minutes later and all three of them worked very hard and finished this massive job in one day. These are some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. There were no hassles or surprises and Andrew, Igor and Basil were very skilled and courteous. Also, Nico was VERY flexible with our constant changes of plans and was very accommodating and understanding. An excellent experience all around - could not recommend more highly!

Much thanks & appreciation to Slava & his hardworking crew for their excellent job excavating, installing weeping tiles & pipe, repairing cracks, waterproofing, and backfilling the 7'-deep trench 27' along the full side of our home. Wow!! On site, Slava, the lead foreman, clearly explained step by step their work including repairing foundation cracks and securing our downspout and other connections better then before. All in all, we are greatly satisfied & highly recommend Aquatech to anyone looking into correcting their leaking basements. Slava -- you & your crew brought humor, sincerity & experience -- no rush job here, just highly competent work by deserving technicians & company. Thanks also to Andrew and Terry for their super fast service with the gas line locate, the fast return calls, home inspection & estimate. Priced fairly for super work + 25 years warranty that can be passed on to a new homeowner. You guys were great!! Highly recommend! -- Anne & Frank - Scarborough

Terry was friendly, fair, and transparent on his work and recommendations. Other bidders could have gouged myself on the price but he was honest. He kept costs downs but the quality was still top notch. He treated our family like one of his own without being “fake” to get the job. He’s as genuine and real as they come.

Slava and his crew did a fantastic job of installing piers and raised our sinking front concrete 4 inches. Very courteous, hard working crew! They hand dig as opposed to other companies that wanted to use a backhoe thus, saved our shrubbery and trees. I would highly recommend Aquatech!
