Professional drain cleaning services a wide variety of tools and equipment to address your clogged drains and pipes.
For cleaning smaller drain lines such as tubs, sinks, showers, water fountains, condensate lines and other drain lines less than 2" in diameter the preferred method is using a 5/16" metal drain cable.
The smaller cables can negotiate tight turns and small p-traps. This smaller cable generally can only run up to 25 feet and have still enough torque to handle a blockage.
For cleaning interior toilet lines and other drain lines less than 4" in diameter the preferred method is to use a 3/8" or a ½" metal drain cable. These cable are stiffer and can go up to 75 feet and still have enough torque to handle a blockage.
For main line blockage in 4" and 6" pipes the preferred cable of choice is a ¾" inner core cable. These metal cables are heavy duty and are able to go distances of over 150 feet. The cables are very stiff and cannot go through too many bends. ¾" cables are cable of cutting through small roots and also capable of retrieving debris from the line. This cable is our most popular cable for handling nearly all residential and commercial main sewer line blockages.
Hydro-Jetting: Our hydro jetter is a trailer mounted sewer cleaning machine. The trailer carries a 600 gallon water reserve for locations where water is not available.
Using specially designed pumps the jetter produces a pressure of 4000 pounds per square inch at 18 gallons per minute. The jetter has a 500 foot hose with 3 nozzles designed for penetrating, cutting and cleaning. The hydro jetter does the most thorough job of cleaning grease from pipes, pushing non floating debris down the line and cutting roots that a standard cable machine cannot cut.
Using the force of the water, the hydro jetter pushes its way through the piping and can be used on most lines from 3" up to 24" in diameter. For smaller kitchen and laundry lines, we use a mini hydro jet which operates at a lower pressure and less flow rate.
Plunger and Hand Auger: When someone mentions a toilet clog, the first thing almost everyone thinks of is the plunger. The plunger uses the kinetic energy of the water to force water from an unclog portion of the toilet to the point in the line where the clog is developed.
The plunger actually acts like a pump and increase the water pressure in the drain line. The plunger can cause leakage to occur from the wax seal in the toilet. Plungers are best used when the clog is known to be in the toilet itself.
A more reliable alternative to the plunger is the hand auger, the hand auger is a six foot long snake on a stick. The auger can retrieve or push the clog down the line.
