Cost Effective Hourly Rates

Since most drain issues occur underground, it is impossible to accurately determine the cause of the issue without being on site. That is why all drain cleaning services are charged by the hour instead of a quoted rate. Not only is this the most cost effective way to provide services in the most efficient manner, it also ensures a thorough, comprehensive job.

The Versatility to Do More

The team at Wm. Groves Ltd. is recognized for our superb skills in troubleshooting and solving problems (especially for complex and unusual jobs), whereas other companies may simply give up. Often times, we receive calls from customers who have already called out another company, but they were unable to complete the job.


Our high pressure flusher trucks are equipped with CCTV video cameras, locators and electric cable machines in order to meet all the various needs of our customers. For example, if the sewer machine brings back mud, we are able to camera inspect the sewer line and locate any areas of broken piping all within the same service call. Many of our competitors need to call in a second or third vehicle with two or more men to flush, operate the camera and locate the sewer line. This often means additional costs and lost time for their customers.

CCTV Camera Inspections, Augering & High Pressure Flushing

The CCTV video camera is often used in conjunction with our locator to allow us to identify and locate broken sewers, crushed pipes, cracks, disjoints, dips and other possible blockage causes. This method enables us to pinpoint only the areas that need to be repaired and helps avoid unnecessary excavating, thus keeping your costs to a minimum. We also use our cameras to see that blockages and buildup have been removed. To save you money, we have special rates when these devices are used together.

CCTV Camera Inspections and Locating

We are able to camera, locate and sketch your sewer issues in order to comply with various municipalities and the City of Hamilton’s various sewer lateral programs. Any deficiencies found or recommendations suggested by our servicemen are immediately transferred to our company’s superintendents. They will contact you, arrange to meet you on site to discuss your options and then write a free quotation outlining the proposed repair or installation work.

Watermain & Service Locating

We are able to locate most watermains and water services using electronic induction and metal detectors. We also have the means to detect most watermain and water service leaks using electronic amplification.

Maintenance Services

We recommend regular maintenance programs to help you avoid backups or potential overtime charges for night and weekend service calls. We can perform regular maintenance for issues involving:

  • Tree Roots

  • Frequent Sludge, Grease and Paper Buildup (i.e. Dip in the Line)

  • Kitchen, Toilet and Laundry Stack Cleaning

  • Lateral Line Pressure Flushing (Catch Basin, Trench Drain)
