Do you have clogged or slow drains? We'll address the problem with these 3 steps:
Clear the Drain
Clearing the drain and getting water flowing again is the first step in diagnosing your stoppage issue. Clean-outs are an effective way to enter the drain pipe system and run a cable or snake with an appropriate cutter to remove drain stoppages formed by grease, root intrusions, or hard deposits. Another method to remove stoppages is hydro-jetting, using high pressure water to cut away roots, flush out grease, or smooth out roughness and scale-build up in pipes. Once the drain is clear, it is ready for a camera inspection, if needed.
Sewer Camera Inspection
A sewer camera inspection of the inside of a pipe can tell a lot about the pipe condition, trouble areas, rough areas, cracks in the pipe, or root intrusion. Another benefit of the camera inspection is the ability to locate clean outs, which are often hidden or buried. Overall, a camera inspection can help to diagnose reoccurring problems and identify best repair or maintenance options.
Replace Old, Problematic Drains
If you have old cast iron drains, one solution is to replace them with ABS plastic. Another option is pipe re-lining, which places a new pipe inside the old pipe with a liner that will smooth out the roughness. Lastly, you can do trenchless pipe replacement, which bursts the pipe underground and pulls a new pipe in its place.
