Tree root removal

Tree Root Infestation Removal and Repair

In a worst-case scenario, your drainage issues could be caused by a tree root infestation of your plumbing system. It might be caught at an early stage that can be corrected with a powerful tool like a hydro jet – or you might be looking at the replacement of large portions of your pipes. A reliable plumbing service that will be straightforward and keep hidden fees out of your receipt is a necessity if you find out you have a tree root infestation.

Specialized Snake Drains and Plungers for Unclogging Drains

The snake drains and plungers you find in stores may be advanced, but they may not be as long or have the properties that a plumber’s snake drains and plungers are more likely to have. From specialized snake drains – also called augers – for every size of pipe to plungers that are created to have especially strong seals for unclogging tough blockages in your toilet, we can get your drain working again in no time.

Plumbing Inspection to Diagnose Issues

If your clog is deep in your plumbing system or you suspect it’s a symptom of a larger issue, then you may want to have your pipes inspected. With fiber optic cameras, we can look into pipes we wouldn’t otherwise have access to and accurately identify the issue you’re facing, whether it’s the exact location of a blockage or a crack in a pipe. This will allow us to quickly tailor your repair needs and fix the issue more quickly.

Broken garbage disposal

Garbage Disposal Maintenance and Repair

If your garbage disposal has been making strange sounds, smelly, not working properly or at all, or otherwise acting strangely, it could be time to call a plumber. We can unjam or replace disposals with dull or stuck blades, motor issues, and more.

Hydro jetting services

Hydro-jetting Technology for Stubborn Clogs

You’ve tried cleaning solutions. You’ve tried augers. You’ve tried plungers. If nothing is working, you may need to call in “the big gun”: a hydro-jet. This tool is, essentially, a power washer for your drain. It sends high-pressure water through your pipe to break up and clear the blockage in it. A hydro-jet’s flexibility and length means it can reach deep into your drain and take care of the hardest-to-reach blockages, too.

Commercial drain repairs

Sewer Line Inspection and Repair

Have you been having backups, slow drains, stinky smells from plumbing or around your home, skyrocketing water bills without cause, or inconsistent water levels in your toilet? All of these could be signs of an issue with your sewer line, and they require immediate professional attention.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is it time to call a professional?

Issues that look small on the surface could be indicators of larger problems. Don’t hesitate to call a professional plumber if you have stinky smells coming from the drain or gurgling as liquid passes through it, are having to repeatedly unclog the same drain, have had water backing up through a pipe or draining slowly, or have leaking or broken pipes.

Why is my sink or tub draining slowly?

Most likely, you have a blockage in your drain. Blockages are usually caused by something going down the drain that shouldn’t, like hair in a shower, grease in a kitchen sink, or anything beyond human waste and toilet paper in a toilet.

How do I unclog a drain myself?

This largely depends on the type of clog you have. You might use a plunger, a drain snake, a hot water and salt or dish soap mixture, or other solutions.

Can I clean drain pipes myself? How often should I clean them?

Yes, and it’s recommended that you clean your drains about once a month with a hot water and salt or baking soda mixture. Prevention is the best way to avoid drain clogs and backups.

Can I use chemical drain cleaners to unclog my drain?

We – and just about any plumbing company you might speak with – advise strongly against using chemical drain cleaners if you can help it. The chemicals are erosive to your pipes, potentially harmful to humans, pets, and the local environment, and often do not provide an effective solution.

How can I prevent a clogged drain?

No matter how careful you are, the eventual clogged drain is inevitable. The best way to avoid drain problems is to never put anything down that’s not supposed to go into it. For example, hair in your shower or grease in your kitchen sink.
