The Drain Cleaning Tools We Use
- Hydro Jetting
This method of drain cleaning makes use of water under high pressure that is forced through the drain or sewer line, allowing us to clear even the toughest drains. This drain cleaning tool is simple, fast and environmentally friendly as it uses no harsh chemicals in the process. Just water.
- Drain Augers
You’ll likely recognize the name “drain snake,” however the official name is an auger. This plumbing tool is a coiled spiral snake with a thick handle on the end. The snake is used to break up clogged pipes, allowing access to the blockage before the drain is cleaned of debris.
- Video Camera Drain Inspection
Video inspection is a technique we use to discover any underlying problems that may be causing clogs, blockages or anything that might cause a slow drain. Pipes that are cracked, corroded or even collapsed can be easily identified using a camera inspection, and our plumber can even determine if roots from trees have caused any damage to your drain line.
Homemade drain cleaners and DIY recipes that use baking soda and vinegar to clear drains can provide some relief and clear some simple problems. However, if you have an older house and the problem has been building for years or when your children or teens start flushing bigger items, everything changes.
Common Causes for Clogged Drains
Pipes in different parts of your house can require drain cleaning for various reasons. In the kitchen, it’s usually a grease issue, while toilet or shower drains might be caused from hair or a child’s toy. Here are a few common reasons for needing your pipes cleaned.
- Things that shouldn’t be flushed in the first place:
There are a lot of household items that regularly get flushed but that SHOULD NEVER have gone down the drain in the first place. These items should go into the garbage, and never get into your pipes. Items such as baby wipes, dental floss, feminine hygiene products, diapers, pills are often found to clog drains. Drain cleaning is often required for cooks who pour kitchen grease down the sink. Grease should go in the garbage.
- Poorly installed drain line:
A poorly plumbed drain line may cause clogs, slow draining issues or worse yet, a sewage backup. Having the plumbing re-piped may be the best solution.
Persistent clogs are frustrating. Sewage backup is worse yet. In older neighbourhoods mother nature herself may be the cause of your problems. Roots can grow into the pipes or through the pipes regardless of if they’re made of cast iron, terracotta or plastic piping. If you live in an old house and you’re sick of cleaning drains, we recommend having your sewer line scoped with a camera, which will help you better identify problem areas.
… and this is only a partial list. There are a lot of things that clog drains
Home remedy drain cleaners may help, but will have little if any effect on tree roots or extensive clogs.
