Our professional plumbers can handle any plumbing or drain problem, and are available for emergency services.
WHAT CAUSES DRAIN CLOGS?
Drain and sewer systems use gently sloped pipes to carry wastewater to the main sewer line. Any impediment to the flow can slow the system down and cause clogs. Most clogs are made of materials such as:
- Food particles
- Cooking grease
- Soap scum
- Toilet paper
- Flushable wipes
- Foreign objects
Damage to the pipes themselves can also cause or aggravate clogging. To avoid clogs, dispose of grease in the garbage, and install drain screens to capture hair and food particles.
DRAIN CLEANING SERVICESWhether you have a slow drain, a clogged drain, or would like to avoid future backups, our drain cleaning services at Pipeline Plumbing is the correct choice. We use techniques such as snaking to remove clogs and dislodge grease accumulations in drain and sewer pipes. The process can be used as an emergency service to clear an existing clog or as a preventive measure to keep drains clear.
Our primary drain-cleaning techniques include:
Pipe Snaking: A long, flexible steel coil is inserted into the pipe to break up or pull out clogs.
Auguring: A high-powered motor drives a snake with specialized cutting heads, which can remove tough materials like tree roots or paper.
Hydro Jetting: Extremely high-pressure water is used to break up clogs and strip debris accumulations from inside the pipes.
Pipe Descaling: Uses water pressure or chemical cleaners to remove accumulated minerals, rust, and other debris.
Camera Inspections: A video camera can inspect the interior of pipes to determine the cause of clogs.
What Causes Sink Backups?
Most sink backups are caused by clogged drains, but occasionally, other factors can cause or contribute to the situation. A clogged or malfunctioning dishwasher drain can cause wastewater to back up into the sink drain, as can a jammed garbage disposal. A clog further down the drain can have the same effect.
What Causes Toilet Clogs?
Any foreign object can cause a toilet to clog, especially in older homes. To avoid clogs, only flush toilet paper and waste, and avoid flushing the following:
- Flushable wipes
- Paper towels or tissues
- Hygiene products
- Foreign objects like keys, toys, or jewelry
