Drain tile inspection, repair

We have lived in our home for 17 years without any problem with a wet basement. It had been saturated with water when we moved in but I dug up and repaired the drain along one side and the rear of the house myself. I assumed the other side and front had been repaired by the previous owner as the white clean out drains were in place. Well we noticed wet spots on that side this spring and fearing we were now in for a total dig up and replacement of drains we called Westside Drainage.Carlo was at our place promptly and scoped the system with me showing me all the problems which were along the side and front that I thought had been replaced; no they had not. He assured me he could repair three sections that were plugged, stated that existing tile did not need to be replaced and all other sections were clean. He then returned and dug at 3 spots and sure enough found plugged tiles. He was glad to have me watch the work proceed and include me in his observations.
The worksite was kept neat and clean and he did not disturb plantings along the wall. Work done in 3 days and you would never notice that it had been disturbed. He also gave me good advice should we decide to put a bathroom in the basement. I would highly recommend this gentleman for any plumbing, drainage work. It was actually a wonderful experience as it was a pleasure dealing with an honest, forthright contractor. In my opinion he was the best I have ever dealt with. Can't say enough positives about him and the work and besides, he saved me a "ton" of money.

Drainage Issue Diagnosis

We moved into our home 3 years ago, and have had two floods in our basement in that time. After the first flood, we called a local, well known company to come out and diagnose what the problem was. We knew that water was backing up through our drain tile system, but didn't know exactly what the root cause was. After several hours of them poking around, we were told they couldn't figure it out exactly, and that most likely a full replacement of our drain tile system was necessary. Quoted many thousands of dollars.
Second opinion sought from another drainage company who had a different opinion as to what might help, but still weren't able to diagnose the root cause. We chose to go with the second option, as it appeared more reasonable at the time. Fast forward one year, flood number two happens. Dumbfounded, we searched for yet another opinion and happen upon Carlo from Westside drainage. He was there the next day.
It took him less than five minutes to figure out the problem, and less than ten minutes to expose the faulty connection from the sump to the city drainage line. Wow! His recommendation to change the outgoing drainage line to the city was reasonable in price.....and has worked to solve our problem.
Carlo is very knowledgable and CLEARLY knows what he is doing in this field.
Thank you Carlo!

Draintile Inspection

We were told that water damage in the basement was due to the drain tile being crushed and that it needed to be replaced. I called Carlo to provide a second opinion, and not only did he advise that the drain tile didn't need replacing, but he was able to locate a broken pipe which was the cause of the damage. After having several contractors look at the damage, he was the only one who spotted the broken pipe, and saved us thousands of dollars. I would highly recommend Carlo. He was very professional and knowledgable.

Scope of Drain Tile and Sump Cleanout

We had Carlo in to scope our very old (100yr) clay drain tile. He came with his camera and was pleasantly surprised with how good shape they were in. He showed us what he was looking for and tested them out with his hose. We then wanted to add a sump, when he came back to look he found an old buried one that was in pretty good shape. He could have told us we needed a new one but was honest and reduced the quoted price to clean out and add a new manhole barrel. We are very happy with the result and the honest opinions and the work that was completed. Thank very much!

Had them scope our sewer line after City said it was not in good shape, but Carlo came out and scoped it with his camera, no problems. Will use him again for upcoming plumging
