Common Area Vertical Drain Pipe Cleaning Service
Posted By kharnage on September 16, 2022
Countywide Mechanical will be coming out to the building on Monday, October 17th to begin the common area vertical kitchen drain cleaning project. Each vertical stack will take around two (2) days to complete and the entire project is expected to take a little over two weeks. To complete this service, Countywide will attempt to go through the kitchen clean-out access panels where possible, but will also have to go through the kitchen sink drain in several units in between clean-out locations to ensure the vertical line is thoroughly cleaned.
This process will also require the plumbing vendor and building staff to go through each stack in the tower and flush hot water in every unit above/below the cabling in order to ensure any obstructions in the line are clear and didn’t get pushed into an adjacent unit drain. This service, which takes place every two-three years, will help proactively eliminate larger backups and floods and maintain the integrity of the cast iron pipe. Once the vendor confirms the timing of the service, Management will reach out again with a firm schedule and confirm unit access in order to complete this service. Once the information is released, please reach out to confirm your unit’s availability
