Having your drains back up always happens at the most inconvenient of times. Having the proper tools and experience to tackle the jobs is important to keep drains flowing and not damage piping with corrosive chemicals. Many homes still have old cast iron drains systems. Over time, cast iron gets brittle and will start to pit heavily. Many older homes have under sized piping versus modern methods. This will lead to clogs more often over the years. We have various size cable cleaning machines, high pressure water jetting, compressed air cleaning, and augers to tackle your most stubborn clogs.
The cable cleaning machines come in a variety of sizes and intensity. From smaller more gentle cable cleaning of sinks, tubs, and shower drains; to heavier cables to clear home main drains. Various drain cables can be equipped with root cutting blades, spade tips for grease cutting, retrieving hooks, and specialty cutters for crystallized waste.
Sometimes high-pressure water jetting can be a better alternative to cable cleaning. Water jetting can be great for main sewer lines, subsurface drainage lines for rain-water removal, and other drains available from outside maintenance points. Water jetting sprays a high-powered stream that scrubs your plumbing pipe walls. In the proper situation, it can do a better job than cable cleaning to get your pipes to their best possible condition.
Minor piping systems such as HVAC drains and drains that cannot be effectively cable cleaned or water jetted, sometimes must be blown out with compressed air. These piping systems are usually too small or make too tight of turns to get more thorough equipment cleaning through. Sometimes old inaccessible tub drains referred to as drum traps can be cleaned this way as well. Old plumbing systems can be delicate so this should be used as a last result.
