What Our Plumbers Know About Drains and Drain Cleaning
What you wont hear from other plumbing companies is that you can prevent your drains from being clogged in the first place.
The truth is that a properly installed and vented sewer line that is in healthy shape will not ever clog unless there is foreign debris in the drain. Foreign debris is defined as anything that does not belong in your drain or toilet such as q-tips, handi wipes, paper towels, feminine products, roots, etc.
When our plumbers are called to your house to clear your clogged drain, you can be assured that they have not only the appropriate equipment to clear your drain, but also the knowledge to provide you with a solution to prevent you from having to call us back again.
Drain Cleaning Services We Offer:
Also know as Rooter machines are the most commonly used tool to clear a clog. Our trained plumbers use cable machines to clear most clogs. This machine is basically a rotating cable with a cutting head on the end of the cable that is mechanically fed into your drain pipe by our trained plumber until it ‘cuts’ through the clog in your pipe. Once our plumber has cut through the clog, effluent is allowed to drain through your pipe normally. For residential service, we provide a 30 day guarantee for that clog.
A service that is used on clogged drains that reoccur more often, cannot be cleared by a cable machine, or are infiltrated by roots. Our state of the art jetting machine pumps water through your drains at up to 4000 PSI much like a pressure washer. By using our hydrojetter, our plumber can ensure that your sewer pipes are completely cleaned out and flushed. Often times, your sewer pipe will be restored to new condition after this service is performed. Compared to a cable machine, the hydrojetter performs a much more thorough job than a cable machine does.
Pipe Video Inspection and Location
Pipeline video inspection is a perfect way of determining the status of your pipes without having to dig. When it comes to your sewer lines, you can never be too careful. Any slight crack or intrusion can not only back up your sewer system, but can also cause some very expensive damages. By getting a camera inspection, you can rest easy knowing whether or not your pipes are in working order. A video inspection is the only way to determine your sewer pipes condition.

Many times people rush out to the grocery store to purchase liquid drain cleaners. This is neither the safest nor the most efficient way to clear clogged drains.

The other potential hazard of these products is that they can form hard build up if too much has been added that is virtually un-removable.
