If you find that you always have a slow drain, it may be time to look into drain snaking as a solution. Snake drain cleaning, also known as drain snaking or drain auguring, is a method of clearing clogs and blockages in plumbing pipes using a long, flexible tool called a plumbing snake or drain snake.
A plumbing snake is typically made of a coiled metal cable with a handle on one end and a corkscrew-like auger on the other end. The auger end is inserted into the drain and the cable is manually pushed or rotated to break up and clear out any blockages. Once the process is completed, our technician may be able to enlighten you about what blocked the drain and how to avoid such issues in the future.
Snake drain cleaning can be effective for clearing out common blockages such as hair, soap scum, grease, and small objects that have become lodged in the drain. However, it may not be effective for more severe clogs, such as those caused by tree roots or severe pipe damage.
It is important to note that snake drain cleaning should be performed by a trained professional, as improper use of the tool can cause damage to the plumbing system or even injury to the user. A professional plumber can safely and effectively use a plumbing snake to clear clogs and keep your plumbing system running smoothly.
In case snaking or drain cleaning doesn’t work, we can perform line jetting. This involves the use of a pressurized spray of water to clear the obstructions from the pipes.
Drain line jetting, also known as hydro-jetting, is a method of clearing clogs and blockages in plumbing pipes using high-pressure water.
A drain line jetting machine typically consists of a high-pressure hose, and a specialized nozzle that can direct the high-pressure water flow into the drain. The water is pressurized and then forced through the hose and nozzle, where it is directed into the drain to break up and clear out any blockages.
To use drain line jetting, the machine is first connected to the plumbing system and the high-pressure hose is inserted into the drain. The water is then turned on and pressurized, and the nozzle is directed into the drain. The high-pressure water flow is then used to break up and flush out any clogs and blockages, while also scouring the interior of the pipes to remove any built-up debris or residue.
Drain line jetting is a powerful and effective method of clearing stubborn clogs and blockages in plumbing pipes, and it can also help to prevent future clogs by thoroughly cleaning the interior of the pipes. It can be especially effective for removing grease, tree roots, and other tough blockages that may not be cleared with other methods.
It is important to note that drain line jetting should only be performed by a trained professional, as improper use of the equipment can cause damage to the plumbing system or even injury to the user. A professional plumber can safely and effectively use drain line jetting to clear clogs and keep your plumbing system running smoothly.
