If our plumber isn’t able to open your drain on that first dispatch, then the initial visit, inspection, and diagnosis are absolutely free. But where do you go from there? If we couldn’t successfully restore your drain’s flown capacity with a rooter or drain cleaner, that must mean there is a larger problem. Some more advanced drain blockage issues include:
- Tree Root Intrusion
- Cast Iron or Orangeburg Pipe
- Sediment or Grease Build-Up
- Pipe Bursts and Collapses
How do we address these plumbing problems before they become disasters?
Multiple Ways to Fix Stubborn Drains
- Large Cable Machine with Cutting Blade– When an obstruction is too impacted for a typical cable job to take care of it, we sometimes resort to the heavier-duty rooter.
- Hydro-Jetting (High Water Pressure Jetting)– This is far more often our first choice. Hydro-jetting is a process by which an extremely powerful hose is attached to a drain. The water blasting from the hose is capable of stripping grease away from the insides of your pipes, restoring them to a point beneath nearly ten years worth of grease and oil (which is built up after years of run-off from our hands and our soap). Hydro-jetting also is tremendously effective towards eliminating tree roots. Overall, hydro-jetting is a maintenance procedure that ought to be performed for all drains, regardless if they are actively backing-up or not.
- Pipelining (CIPP)– Cast In-Place Piping is a “trenchless” technique for permanently rehabilitating and repairing drains; it’s called “trenchless” because it avoids the need to dig up your yard, since the solution comes from the inside the pipe itself. An epoxy is poured into a pipe, lining it with tough plastic, and when the epoxy dries there’s a completed pipe inside the existing one!
- Conventional Excavation– This is the tried and true practice of digging a trench in order to find the pipe, remove it, and replace it. As we mentioned, this service comes with a warranty of 10 years.
