Staring into a sink or bathtub full of standing, dirty water, your first impulse might be to grab that bottle of household drain cleaner from under the sink.
Yes, your sink may empty after pouring those chemicals down, but all you’ve really done is create a temporary opening.
A better, longer-lasting solution is having your drains cleared by a professional with modern, efficient equipment, virtually eliminating accumulated gunk and debris so drains function properly.
Eyman’s plumbing professionals can thoroughly inspect your drains, even using a special in-line video camera to visually pinpoint the exact problems. Depending on what they find, there are several options to clear your drains.
Cable Cleaning or “Snaking” sends a spinning blade on a 50 foot cable through your pipes, cutting through obstructions.
Different drain snakes are used to clear different types of clogs, while using different size blades helps ensure the pipe is cleared all the way to the edges.
Cable cleaning is great for smaller drains and is generally easier on the traps beneath sink and tub fixtures that leave a little standing water to stop sewer gases from entering your home.
For larger drains or tougher clogs, hydro-jetting blasts water through pipes at up to 4,000 pounds per square inch to remove food, hair, grease, or other organic build-up, particularly when it’s stuck to the side of the pipe.
This powerful technology is frequently used by restaurants or other businesses, but it’s also a powerful tool for the most challenging clogs, including tree roots in your sewer line.
Clogged drains shouldn’t just be temporarily opened which usually means the drain is opened just enough to allow water to drain out. Instead, the drain needs to actually be cleared by a professional plumber. Don’t fall for those “We will “open” your drain for cheap” ploys! Eyman Plumbing, Heating and Air has modern, efficient equipment and techs experienced in actually clearing any drain, large or small, from industrial plants and restaurants, to your home.
