In any type of plumbing system, grease and sediment accumulation is completely normal, especially in the low points of the drainage line.
To avoid blocked clogs, we offer power flushing and hydro flushing services. These will keep your drainage lines clean and greatly reduce the likelihood of a full-system block-up or slowed drain. We also use down-drain cameras to see firsthand how clean the lines are after a cleaning is performed. This is effective for many types of drain lines including sanitary lines, storm lines, catch basins and sumps.
HYDRO JETTING EXPLAINED
You are probably asking yourself what hydro-jetting is and what it can do for you. If you have noticed clogs or other problems with your plumbing that keep recurring, hydro jetting may be a solution. Sometimes, as time goes on, sludge can build up inside your pipes and create problems. Sometimes a drain can be unclogged but the sludge remains in place, which will create blockages in the future.
GETTING THE JOB DONE
Hydro jetting is a way to clean your drains to ensure there are no issues. A hydro jetter sprays pressurized water into your drains to remove anything that could block the flow of water. Hydro jetting could be the perfect solution for your problem.
ELIMINATE THE CLOG
The process of removing buildup involves working with gravity. As the water scours the pipes, the debris that's dislodged then moves down, with gravity, safely flushing the debris out of the system.
In most cases, hydro jetting is a safe way to remove blockages that cause clogging. However, it is possible to cause further problems if hydro jetting is done in sewer lines where tree-root penetration is significant.
Inspecting the plumbing system and the sewer lines to assess the root of the problem before implementing any solution is recommended.
Also recommended is a camera inspection after cleaning out plumbing pipes to show the effectiveness of the hydrojetting, and the general condition of the pipes.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
Your drain clearing cost will depend on:
Location of the clog. Clogs in the main sewer line cost more to clear than ones in secondary drain lines because clogs in the mainline are more difficult to reach and affect more than one plumbing fixture.
Accessibility of your plumbing cleanout. The harder your cleanout is to reach, the more you’ll pay in labour costs. Cleanouts located outside your home will be easier to access than ones inside it.
Video camera inspection. A camera inspection increases the price upfront, but can save your plumber a lot of time in clearing the clog.
Severity of the clog. Depending on what’s clogging your drain, a plumber will use either a drain cleaning cable machine (less expensive) or a hydro jetting machine (more expensive) to clear it.

My heating furnace flamed out feb 2021 at the peak of cold wave. I contacted Acorn service group. The lady dispatcher was very friendly. Took my information and assured me inspite of being busy will send a technician as soon as they can. Technician came and diagnosed the issue and gave me estimate to replace parts. Their estimate is very reasonable. I know that because I enquired around to know what are costs of replacing cost. I believe their estimate is honest one.They promptly followed up next day replaced parts and got my heating furnace working.Great work by two young technicians Taylor and Kyle. Technicians were friendly and did great job. Overall I am happy with their work and will definitely recommend them.

I used Acorn to do a full mechanical room upgrade in our house when we bought it. Shawn Tolvin was assigned to us and I cannot say enough good things about him. He’s caring, diligent, resourceful and so customer service oriented that he’ll get his hands dirty himself if needed. I needed an issue repaired and we had 3 tech visits before I called him directly. He was at my house within a couple of hours and fixed the issue himself (in his dress clothes I may add). He’s everything you want in a customer service experience. He keeps me coming back!

Acorn has installed a Daikin heat pump with ductless splits as well as replaced a Navien tankless water heater at my home. In each case their staff were responsive, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The jobs were done with great care, impeccable workmanship with great attention to detail. I would highly recommend Acorn!

Acorn replaced my toilets in my condo. Chris arrived on time and worked quickly to complete the job. He cleaned up the work space and was very friendly and professional.

Acorn installed a new Regency gas fireplace in our home and we could not be happier with the result. The quote was provided quickly and James and Dong installed the fireplace without any issues and it looks beautiful. James took the time to fully explain how to use the remote control. Professional, respectful and friendly. Thanks for the great service.
21:47 05 Nov 20
Acorn was very accommodating with my appointment time and Jordan was great! He was professional and friendly, wore a mask the whole time and really knew what he was doing. He changed my kitchen sink drains and faucet promptly and cleaned everything up including the faucet box! I’d highly recommend Acorn to anyone!

Acorn' was the only plumbing company to suggest a simple and low cost repair option for a leaking City water main. The other companies all suggested very costly and complicated involving the installation of am entirely new water line. The technician from Acorn suggested a much simpler solution of cutting through the concrete slab and repairing the existing line. The repair work was skillfully completed in a couple hours at 15% of the lowest bid from the other companies. A special thanks to Jordan - he was just awesome - polite, very knowledgeable and superior communication skills. Thank you Jordan.

I can't say enough good things about them, from start to finish! They answered my query promptly, came when scheduled. The tech was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and did a thorough job. He found i had a small gas leak, and fixing the problem now saved a bigger hassle later. The needed part was available within days, and he returned with another wonderful tech to do the repair. All done before i need to turn it on for the season. I highly recommend them.
02:18 07 Sep 20
James was very helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable on what he does. He explained and showed me what the problem was with the fireplace and fixed it. He is a great asset for Acorn.Great service! Thank you James!
19:17 04 Sep 20
What a great professional company. Always had our plumber Jordan arrive on time & kept me in the loop the whole way. He was awesome taking care of our Strata complex problems. New issues continued to pop up & he just took them in stride & came up with a game plan & solution. No complaints & kept us all at ease knowing we were in good hands. Stayed late ensuring all owners had water each night (12 hours on day one) & I would recommend Acorn for any plumbing issues you may have. Ask for Jordan, we were lucky to get him & you won't be unhappy.Thanks Jordan for an excellent plumbing experience that would have been a nightmare for most.

I just want to pass on my experience with Acorn’s crew of young men that came to fix my water issue.It was a complicated issue, with them having to dig up a portion of my lawn and flower bed. They were so careful and took great pains to put things back to the way they were after they were done. They were so professional and polite! I would highly recommend them to anyone!
22:38 14 Aug 20
I had some obscure questions about a propane set up in my camper van and James was very helpful! He didn’t end up having the parts we needed but was able to point us in the right direction. Very professional business. I found them on google and was able to text them from the website with a question I had and they got right back to me which was great.
15:54 15 Jul 20
We used Acorn to service our furnace and heat pump, Taylor was very informative, knowledgeable and did a great job. Everything is working perfectly and we are extremely happy.
18:46 08 Jul 20
Jordan did an excellent job servicing the furnace and hot water heater, along with fixing the gas fireplace remote. He is very professional and took great care given the circumstances that we currently live in. The quality of service that we receive from Acorn Heating and Gas is excellent always. Thank you Jordan! Best regards, Keith and Wendy

Since our move to Tsawwassen we very quickly learned from friends that the best part of living here is the strength of support for our local businesses. And no wonder. Every local business we patronize are not only really great at what they do, but we wind up becoming friends, not just customers. This was our experience with Acorn.When we phone for a service call, Meghan immediately recognizes our name and we wind up in a small chat before we get down to business. Then there are the service technicians. A small but seriously qualified dudes who use their training, experience and all the cool diagnostic tools to tune up your house for maximum efficiency.I have been a business owner of several successful companies for most of my adult life. If I was the owner of Acorn, there isn’t a single thing I would change to make the business better. And that really says something for those who know me.So who am I? Steve Simpson, a resident in Beach Grove. And this is a very sincere, unsolicited message of support for a company that works hard to make a difference.Next time I will was on about Home Hardware, and Aaron’s Automotive and Guardian Drugs and Mario’s Restaurant. All in T-Town.

James was the technician who replaced the blower of our fireplace. He performed his job very professionally, methodical and quick, did a good clean up of the interior of the fireplace and work area. He knows his job very well, replied to our questions promptly without hesitations. We will definitely refer your company to our friends and associates.
01:19 25 Mar 20
I had called Acron to fix a problem with my fireplace. The service tech who took my job was excellent, knowledgeable and efficient with troubleshooting the problem. He went over and above when he put my fireplace back together by making sure it was clean and I was satisfied with the repair. He also respected my place by making sure to use drop clothes and clean up after the service.I was pleased with Acorn and would highly recommend them.
04:16 07 Mar 20

We have been an Acorn client for 3+ years now. Brittany, Tyler, Kyle have always provided great customer service
20:06 31 Jan 20
I totally recommend Acorn to help with anything needed with heating and plumbing. Efficient, super helpful and knowledgeable technicians on the two occasions that I have had them here over the past few years.Today I was delighted to be able to ask the advice of Dennis (the technician who was here to do a check over of my furnace) about a problem that had been bugging me for years with the noisy fan of my fireplace. I was thrilled that he was able to quickly troubleshoot the issue and is now arranging with his Acorn colleague to see about ordering a replacement part.I also was able to learn more about my furnace and after seeing the filter that it would be advisable to have the ducts cleaned (I have 3 big dogs). I was able to get a referral to reliable company with a 10% discount—again, supportive, helpful and efficient.The technician also checked my water tank and offered very helpful advice (and will ask his Acorn colleagues to check (via the tank’s serial numbers) as to what it’s longevity is before it should be replaced. I am a big fan of being proactive to avoid “disasters” such as a leaking tank so I am feeling relieved about the water tank (which has been on my mind for a while).What I really appreciate is the support and assistance through the technician’s helpful attitude, knowledge, efficiency plus follow through which for me translates to peace of mind as a homeowner.Having a quality company that I can trust and depend on translates to peace of mind. I totally recommend Acorn Plumbing and Heating.
20:37 10 Jan 20
I wasn’t home at the time, I see the end results and what a difference it looks great, so clean and you can easily see the inside of the fireplace through the glass. I can’t believe how dirty the glass must get, and the new insert was done about a year ago. It makes a difference to get cleaned once a year, I recommend.
02:33 10 Jan 20
Preston was very efficient, polite and a very pleasant young man. A good representative of your company.
00:00 08 Jan 20
Woke up today, Saturday, and furnace had given out over night. Called Acorn and they were able to send someone the same day, even though it’s the weekend. Taylor did a great job!! I will definitely call Acorn for any future work I need done.
22:36 28 Dec 19
James did a great job in repairing our fireplace. He was fast and efficient and has a great attitude. I would definitely request him again for any future repairs or servicing we require in the future.

04:29 06 Nov 19
Very impressed with Acorn. This is the first time we have used this company and it won't be the last. Our service person, Preston, was an exceptionally nice young man. He was very polite, explained everything to my wife and I in simple terms and cleaned up after he was finished. A credit to the organization

They gave a great quote (and stuck to it!) half the price of another firm we asked for a quote (which came in a day after Acorn had done the job). Job done quickly and with minimal fuss. It has been a trying time for our family, and they really made things straightforward and easy to handle.

I called Acorn to set up a service call for our gas fireplace at my place of work. One call was all it took, polite office staff and a great tech and a great value. Will be back again.

Technition arrived on time. He did his work efficiently in a timely manner and was respectful to his environment. He removed his boots and put a pad down in the work area. When he left, the area was cleaned up. He was resourceful when he asked questions I could not answer and supplied information for future reference.Acorn has been the “go to” company for our family for years and it has been exciting toWatch them grow.Barry and Andrea

Amazing company with great people! Chad and his crew made sure I got the right boiler that my house required and I couldn’t be happier with the install (thanks Taylor) and the IBC boiler they installed!
05:48 05 Jun 18
From start to finish, Acorn has made my furnace installation awesome. Pleasant all around and efficient. The owners are pretty fabulous also!Everyone I’ve dealt with at Acorn has done exactly as they said they would and then some. The furnace is running beautifully and heating my home to perfection. Thank you!

Hi There we had a new high energy furnace installed by Acorn heating a few months ago. I was highly appreciated of the great service and quality work of installing the furnace and removal of the old furnace and help with getting the credit applied.They were exceptional again and I would highly recommend them and will use them again in future for my regular yearly maintenance.ThanksNav
04:31 27 Dec 17

We are so pleased with his professionalism, expertise and courteous service. Taylor is a great asset for Acorn reinforcing Acorn as our forever go-to firm for all our heat & gas needs. Thanks again.

We had our air conditioning installed by them this summer and the level of service was amazing. All of the staff was friendly and they worked hard. Price was great too! Will use them for all of our heating and cooling from now on!
20:47 10 Oct 17
Fantastic experience with these guys! We had a new boiler installed this winter. Ian was a pleasure to deal with and the three young guys that were here to do the installation were great. After service was also top notch. Chad (owner) personaIy followed up and made some adjustments and made sure we were happy. I would highly recommend them. Thank you!
03:14 09 Apr 17
5-stars all the way. The Acorn team had a fair price; comparable to other quotes we got but the Regency product they recommended was the most attractive option so we gave Acorn the business and we are very glad we did. They recommended other trades to help with updating the look of our tile and woodwork as part of changing the old wood burning fireplace to a new and modern look. Allon from All On Tile and Kevin Kistritz, an independent finishing carpenter did great work on their individual contributions to our small renovation, and the results are plain to see in our before and after pictures. Acorn put up with a few schedule changes (none of them terribly last-minute, but changes nonetheless), and they were very accommodating. We are very happy with the results, and will give Acorn our future business as well as recommend them to family and friends.
00:18 02 Feb 17
I highly recommend Acorn Heating. The two technicians that replaced my old furnace were friendly and above all very professional. They left the work-site absolutely spotless at the end of the day. Super company and great guys. You can't go wrong using Acorn.
19:49 27 Oct 15
We just had our new furnace installed Just in time for the rebates. The Acorn crew were great...a pleasure to have in our home. Clearly they enjoy their work! The finished installation was well beyond what I expected. I would recommend these guys to anyone. Thanks guys. Job well done!
