Sewer Cleaning Camera and Jetting
A typical problem is a simple clog caused by something becoming lodged in the drain such as paper towels, tampons, food stuffs ect.
This can be corrected by simply snaking out the drain, clearing the problem.
Tree roots can be a major problem crushing pipes creating bellies and backfall and growing inside the pipes causing severe problems.
Snaking out the drains will only temporarily clear the problem. We recommend using a sewer camera to identify the exact location of the problem and taking necessary action.
If the problem is due to sludge or grease, snaking will not solve the blockage. This is like putting a knife through butter only offering a temporary solution.
In this case jetting out the drain using a high-powered jet machine will wash the walls of the pipe clean, flushing out grease and sludge.
We at Emerald Plumbing have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to take care of any of your drainage needs both residential and commercial.
*We would like to note that installing a cleanout on older homes or buildings is advised. This serves you two ways:
1) Will help to elevate a back up from coming into your home when you remove the clean out cap until we arrive.
2) Helps us to clean your problem without getting on your roof which eliminates any damage to the roof, roof flushing ect. This is also faster and cheaper saving you money in the long run.
Our laundry tub was backing up into the kitchen sink, draining very slowly. He had to use a snake to clean out the laundry and kitchen drains, and got things working again! We know this may be a temporary solution, but we really appreciate your honesty. Ian recommended that we have you do a camera-search. We are on retirement income and that may have to wait a while, but we'll sure use Emerald Plumbing when the time comes.
Emerald Plumbing has done a great job for us. Three other plumbers tried to unclog a laundry drain without success. Emerald Plumbing did the job, explained the problem to us, and were very professional. We highly recommend them!
