8″ Emergency Main Water Line Burst: Swift and Professional Solution by Everest Drain and Plumbing

The Challenge: A Sudden Crisis at a Commercial Plaza

The commercial plaza at 421 Nugget Ave, Scarborough, ON M1S 4L8, faced a critical situation when its main water line burst, affecting the entire complex. The emergency required immediate attention, and Everest Drain and Plumbing was called upon to provide a rapid and effective solution.

Everest Drain and Plumbing to the Rescue for Main water Burst

Upon receiving the call, our team from the Toronto head office was quickly dispatched to the site. Understanding the urgency of the situation, especially in a commercial setting, our technicians were prepared to assess and address the issue promptly.

What We Did: A Step-by-Step Account of Our Expert Response

  • Initial Assessment and Planning:
    Our first step was a thorough inspection to understand the extent of the damage. Our technician, equipped with advanced tools, quickly formulated a plan to tackle the emergency.
  • Securing the Area:
    Recognizing the potential hazards, we secured the area on the cold night of January, 2024. The site was cordoned off with barricades and caution tape, ensuring safety for our team and the public.
  • Precise Excavation and Location:
    At dawn, we began excavating to expose the burst pipe. The excavation was about 20 ft wide and 15 ft deep, where we located the exact point of the burst.
  • Pipe Replacement:
    The damaged ductile pipe section was carefully removed and replaced with a durable PVC pipe. This 7-foot replacement was crucial for a long-term solution.
  • Support and Stability:
    To ensure the stability of the new pipe, we placed gravel beneath it, providing a strong foundation and preventing future issues.
  • Testing and Finalization:
    After the city reopened the water line, we conducted tests to ensure the repair was successful. The area was then backfilled, and a thorough cleanup was conducted.
