Sanitary & Storm Sewer Plumbing Services in Pickering

Sanitary and storm sewers play a big role in the successful management of your home and property’s plumbing system. Both of these plumbing systems are located underground and facilitate drawing water from your home and expelling it into the designated city sewage or drainage systems.

Homeowners are responsible for all maintenance, repairs and replacement costs for the portion of the pipes that are on their property (and potentially up to the public mains). At Caldwell Plumbing, we are experts at inspecting, maintaining and replacing all types of sanitary and sewer pipes.

What Is A Sanitary Sewer Pipe/System?

A sanitary sewer system is responsible for transporting sewage water from residential,  commercial and industrial properties to wastewater (sewage) treatment plants. This includes water from your sinks, showers, toilets, laundry and other home appliances. This water needs to be heavily treated to remove pollutants before being released back into various water sources.

What Is A Storm Sewer Pipe/System?

A storm sewer or storm drain is responsible for handling the runoff from heavy rainfalls and flooding on residential, commercial and industrial properties, as well as the roadways. The water is carried through the appropriate drainage systems where it is then fed into other bodies of water such as streams, rivers and storm management ponds. It is essential that this water remains free from contaminants and pollutants as it is not being treated before reaching our water sources.

Why Is Sanitary & Storm Sewer Maintenance Important?

Due to the underground location of sewer and storm drainage pipes, it makes it easy for homeowners to forget about them and near impossible for them to inspect and maintain them on their own. However, pipes, unfortunately, do not last forever so it’s important that these maintenance tasks get done on a regular basis to prevent serious damage from occurring.  Sometimes, it’s easier to understand just how important regular maintenance is when you understand the negative effects of an ill-maintained plumbing system.
