Dealing with drain clogs is a part of everyday life. Minor clogs can usually be cleared with drain snakes, baking soda and vinegar, a plunger, or another tool. However, some clogs are beyond a DIY plumber’s capabilities.

Clogs caused by sediment buildup, foreign objects, and grease take more effort to fix than your standard bathroom sink clog. Our plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing can address these clogs quickly and at any time of day. Major clogs like these can soon lead to pipe damage, sewage backup, water damage, and other costly issues. Call us for prompt, effective drain cleaning services before the problem worsens.

HydroScrub High Pressure Drain Jetting

If you have a hidden or persistent clog, it’s time for a better solution than your household plunger. The team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing can dislodge even the most stubborn clogs with our advanced HydroScrub® jetting service. This service utilizes pressurized water to clear out tough obstructions and can be used as part of a drain cleaning or sewer line service.

Sewer Line Video Inspection

Sometimes, locating a clog with the tools available in your home is difficult. We offer video inspection in situations like these. Using tiny video cameras, we can locate the exact cause of your clog and eliminate it using the proper tools. These inspections can also identify pipe issues and highlight potential problems before they occur.

Sewer Line Cleaning and Service

Your main sewer line removes wastewater from your home. When there’s an issue with this line, it prevents wastewater from exiting your property, eventually leading to health concerns, safety hazards, and major plumbing issues. Our team can inspect and clear any blockages in your drain line. We offer services like trenchless sewer line repair to minimize the impact on your property during this process.

Sewer Line and Drain Service FAQ

How do plumbers clear drain clogs?

When you have a severe drain clog, a plumber is the first person you should call. Their access to powerful plumbing tools and years of experience enable them to clear clogs effectively.

When you hire a plumber to handle a clog, they’ll use some of the following methods to clear it:

  • Inspection: Upon arrival, the plumber will perform an initial inspection. First, they’ll visually inspect the drain, and if they can see the clog, they’ll immediately decide how to take care of it. If the clog is deeper down, they may use drain cameras to determine the exact location of the clog.
  • Drain snaking: Drain snaking is a typical home clog-clearing method, and plumbers use it too, but with longer, more effective snakes. Using the snake (also called an auger), they’ll burrow into the clog and pull it out of the drain opening. This method works well for clogs made of softer material, like hair, food, and soap scum.
  • Hydro jetting: This more intensive drain service works on even the toughest obstructions. The plumber uses a machine to generate high-pressure jets of water that blast away clogs made of tough materials. It can even be used in sewer lines to clear away tree roots.
  • Pipe removal: If the clog can’t be removed from the drain, the affected section of pipe may need to be removed. This method is sometimes used for stubborn clogs in easily accessible pipes. Depending on whether the section of pipe was damaged by the obstruction, this method may also include pipe replacement.

Once they’ve cleared the clog, most plumbers will offer advice on how to keep drains clear in the future. One popular prevention method is a drain basket, which sits in a drain and catches food, hair, and other foreign objects that cause clogs.
