Emergency Plumbing Services for Property Managers

Plumbing Services for Property Managers

  • Water leaks – Have water leaks located and repaired as soon as possible to prevent costly repairs in the future
  • Frozen pipes – Occasionally during a Lower Mainland winter pipes become frozen. Call SWR Drain Service Ltd. to have frozen pipes thawed and repaired if required. For outside faucets we recommend installation of frost free faucets to prevent future problems with your exterior gardening taps.
  • Water pressure troubleshooting – Water pressure problems can be caused by either low or high water pressure. To prevent pipe damage, wastage of water and water leaks have water pressure issues checked out right away.
  • Line freezing – Using line freezing we can isolate the section of pipe requiring repair without shutting down the whole building plumbing system. This is a great solution for older Strata buildings when a plumbing line repair is needed.
  • Labeling and mapping of shutoffs and piping – Using our locating equipment we can find your plumbing lines and associated shutoffs. Once found, we can provide you with labeling of your shutoffs and a drawing of your plumbing and drainage lines.

Drain Services for Property Managers

  • Perimeter drain inspections – Determine perimeter drainage maintenance or drain repairs required with our perimeter drain inspection service.
  • Clogged drains – Inspection and clearing of in-suite and common area drainage systems.
  • Hydro jetting – Remove years of build-up on the inside walls of pipes using our high-pressure water hydro jetting service.
  • Video inspection – Use our video inspection service to pinpoint the location of broken pipe(s), find areas of concern before trouble starts and determine why a line continually plugs for no apparent reason.
  • Catch basin cleaning – Have the catch basins on your property cleaned as part of the building’s overall drainage maintenance plan.
  • Stack cleaning – Kitchen and bathroom drainage stacks collect grease and other things along the pipe walls. Have these stacks cleaned regularly to prevent backups and keep the building well maintained. We recommend hydro jetting the parkade level horizontal drainage lines before cleaning your kitchen and bathroom stacks.
