FAQs About Drains
Why does my floor drain smell?
The most likely cause of a smelly floor drain is an issue with the P-trap, a u-shaped pipe underneath the drain that – ironically enough – is designed to prevent strange smells and insects living in the sewers from reaching your home.
Pour a couple gallons of water down there with a little vinegar. If that doesn’t work, call the drain experts at AtlasCare.
Why does my sink drain slowly?
A slowly draining sink might be caused by a few different issues, but just about all of them point to a problem with your home’s drain and drainage system.
It could just be a stubborn clog, but it could also be something more serious, like a main drain backup, possibly from branches or a broken pipe.
Contact us for a drain camera inspection and find out what’s causing your clog.
What is the risk of leaving sewage in my home?
To put it bluntly, does a porta-potty sound like a healthy place to make a home?
Leaving sewage from a backup untreated can be extremely hazardous for your health.
If you’ve had a sewer backup, call the Oakville drain experts at AtlasCare.
Why does my toilet bubble and gurgle after a shower?
A toilet that bubbles and gurgles after a shower is most likely caused by a clogged drain.
As with a slowly draining sink, the cause and size of the clog may vary from simple and DIY to a call-an-expert-ASAP potential emergency.
If you’ve been experiencing a gurgling toilet, call AtlasCare.
Can I have a camera sent down my home’s drain?
Yep! AtlasCare offers drain camera inspection services to help you find out what could be plugging up your pipes.
How does a backwater valve work?
A backwater valve is a retrofitted device that’s installed on the main drain at the front of your home underground.
After a heavy rainfall, sewer lines can overflow causing water and sewage to flow back towards your home. By being proactive and having a backwater valve installed, you can ensure your home is properly equipped.
Do I need a sump pump? What do sump pumps do?
If your house is susceptible to floods, a sump pump is extremely handy equipment to have installed.
A sump pump is designed to help keep your basement dry and prevent it from flooding from incidents such as a heavy rainfall.
They are typically installed in specially constructed “sump pits”; water will flow into these pits and the sump pump will pump it back out.
I have discoloured cracks in my walls that leak. What should I do?
Call the local pros at AtlasCare for waterproofing & foundation repair services. We’ll fix up the cracks & ensure a leak doesn’t occur in the walls again.
