Biosmart Drain Cleaner
Unlike chemical drain cleaners which can be a hazard to you and your plumbers health, Biosmart is a natural biological product, approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). This product uses friendly bacteria to eat away at greasy slime build up and odourous residue, leaving pipes and drainage systems clear and free flowing.
Biosmart is designed to work as a preventative measure for keeping drains free-flowing and is a remedy for sluggish systems, it is important to know that Biosmart will not clear a completely clogged system,repair broken pipes or degrade inorganic products.
It should also be noted that in a lot of cases even chemical drain cleaners will not unclog a completely blocked drain.
Biosmart is extremely good for kitchen sink drains as a high content of organic matter flows down even if you wipe the grease and oils off plates before washing them. We suggest using Biosmart if we have cleared a drain with a snake. The snake only opens a passage way through the pipe which allows fluid to flow but does not remove all of the sludge.

What is a backwater valve?
A backwater valve is a device that stops water in the drains outside of the house from being able to come back into the house.
Why do we need backwater valves?
If the drains outside of the home become so full of waste, the waste water starts to back up into any empty pipe it can find, most usually our homes main sewage line. Without the backwater valve, the sewage will rise up into your basement.
What Limitations Do They Have?
Although backwater valves are very good at keeping waste water out of your home,they cannot stop waste water by being added by the home owners, i.e if the backwater valve has been floated due to high sewage levels outside the home, any waste that is flushed in the home will cause a back up within the homes waste pipes as there is nowhere for it to go.
If I Have One Installed Will I Never See Sewage On My Floor Again?
A backwater valve is only designed to protect against external sewage issues and not internal (home) drain problems.
Will installing one on the main sewage line protect my home from back ups caused by heavy rain?
In the pre-1960′s homes, many sewer lines are still tied into storm drain lines; if your home is in these areas the backwater valve will protect your home, but newer neighbourhoods have separate storm and sewage lines, so you may need to install a device on the storm water line.
