In-Suite Drain Clean-Out Installation
As you know, next week we will be undertaking major cleaning of the kitchen/washroom drainage vertical stack piping.
In order to carry out this event and future pipe cleaning projects effectively, plumbing cleanouts will need to be installed in select units. The cleanouts are basically access points into the drainage pipes so that the plumber can more effectively clean all piping to prevent/minimize washing machine & kitchen sewage back-up, bubbling sounds/suds and gurgling. Ideally, clean-outs are installed during building construction but this was perhaps overlooked at the time.
During last week’s unit inspection the plumber determined that clean-outs need to be installed in the units listed below during the appointed drain line cleanout day. The location of the cleanouts will be in the small bedroom wall behind the door and in the linen closet (which needs to be cleared out by owners before the clean-out day).
- 01 units – Monday, February 3: Units 301, 701 and 1401
- 02 units – Tuesday, February 4: Units 302, 802 and 1402
- 03 units – Wednesday, February 5: Units 303, 703 and 1403
- 04 units -Thursday, February 6: Units 304, 704 and 1404
After the clean-outs are installed and the drain cleaned, at the corporation’s expense building Handyman Chris Cruceru (cruceru(at)rogers.com, 647-274-4196) will be installing two fire-rated metal access panels no larger than 24″ x 24″ and will restore the wall finish to its original colour, including painting an entire wall if necessary. We ask that owners of those units noted above provide Chris with any paint colours/codes you might have so that the paint finish can be properly matched, where necessary.
