Drain cleaning is a specialized job, and people should not think of it as a DIY project or a task for semi-skilled labor. If done incorrectly, it can lead to years’ of plumbing-induced headaches and high cost in repairing or replacing pipes.
At Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet and Rooter, we are a team of highly skilled plumbers who are experts in their job and are up-to-date with the latest technological advances in the plumbing industry.
The team is lead by Robert, the owner who has over 30 years’ experience in the field and he is the one clients speak to when they call, so there is complete clarity about the issue facing the client and the solution to it.
One of the many services our team at Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet and Rooter specializes in is drain cleaning. This involves the use of modern technology and needs specially trained professionals to use it.
For us, the first step in drain cleaning is sewer inspection. We send an HD camera mounted on a flexible tube into the sewers from an entry point. The camera transmits a live feed of the inside of the pipe it is passing through. Our team views the images on a monitor, and they keep the camera moving to get a complete picture of the entire system.
In case of a blockage, the team will decide on a solution depending on the blockage itself. If a small root ball is blocking the sewer, our team will use a mechanized rooter to clear it. The rooter has a set of metal teeth attached to its head, which saw through the roots, reducing them to fine debris. This debris is then flushed away with a jet of water, leaving the drain clear.
However, in case of drains blocked by accumulated domestic waste or large root balls that a rooter cannot remove, our team will opt to clear them with a hydro jetter. The hydro jetter is a machine that forces water through the drain at very high pressure of between 4,000 and 60,000 psi. The matter causing the blockage cannot withstand the pressure and disintegrates into smaller particles that wash away in the same stream of water.
Hydro jetting is also a good option for drain maintenance, when the pipe itself is clear, but could potentially get blocked or narrowed due to the grease, salt, rust and sludge lining the inner wall. Sewer inspection and cleaning is also a good idea before moving into a newly rented or purchased property. Drain cleaning is a must at some point for all domestic and commercial properties. It is a job that a team of experts should undertake.
