Predict Emergency Repairs Before They Happen With Video Assessments

Are you running your building’s sanitary and storm piping systems to fail because there are no viable solutions on the market? Traditionally, individual pipe sections would be replaced as they become clogged, corroded or unusable. What if there was a way to change that mindset and take a proactive approach to pipe repair? What if a cost-effective solution could be provided that would save 30-50% of these traditional replacement costs?

At Ontario Pipe Lining (OPL), we know that the longer you go between maintaining sanitary drains only increases the chance of major problems occurring in the future. These backups, floods are often unbudgeted, costly to repair and utilize scarce operational resources at the site.

Next time a section of drain pipe needs to be replaced, hire a plumber who can record a CCTV video of the pipe and share it OPL for a complimentary assessment to review and provide you an alternative method to clean and re-line the drain.

The camera will help to identify drains that need increased maintenance (flushing) or to identify larger problems that can be solved with trenchless CIPP repair methods. Not only does this streamline the repair process, but it will help prevent follow-up maintenance costs and emergency repairs from occurring in the future.

OPL technicians use CCTV video inspections to eliminate guesswork and to pinpoint the source of the piping issue. The visual inspection can help to evaluate the location, condition, and diameter of the damaged pipe. 

Depending on the size and scale of a job site, video inspections of multiple drains within a building can typically be completed within a day or two. We can share our findings and partner with operational staff and their building engineers to coordinate a repair plan. Based on our observations, we can offer insight that the majority of traditional plumbers cannot provide as they are less familiar with CIPP trenchless repairs methods.  

Once the pipes have been repaired using our minimal-disruption CIPP (cured-in-place-pipe) method, preventative video inspection can occur on a regular or annual basis to ensure everything is in working order and traditional maintenance programs can be deferred 3, 5 or even 10 years.

We offer video inspections for residential, commercial, industrial, and high-risk spaces (hospitals, other health care facilities, multi-story condos, hotels, and office towers) in Toronto, the GTA, and Southern Ontario. Read more about how we use video assessments to identify complex piping issues in our case study on the E.C Drury School.

Don’t wait until the last minute to get your deteriorated pipes assessed. We recognize that emergency pipe repairs can take a toll on condos, hospitals, schools and other high-traffic buildings with multi-story stacks. Calling the right professionals at the right time can be the difference between an easy repair and a long-term problem.
