Most utilized methods of drain cleaning
- Hydro Jetting
- Enzymes & Bacteria
What is snaking?
Snaking a drain line is one of the most common methods of clearing a drain. When snaking a sewer line, there is a machine that is called a snake that has a thick metal cable that goes down your sewer cleanout.
A blade at the front of the cable allows a plumber to cut through any materials that have obstructed your sewer line from flowing freely.
Having clogged drain pipes can be a real hassle, but your local plumber is ready to help you out. By using a drain cleaning machine or 'snake', we can effectively unclog any drain in your home.
Snaking involves feeding the drain snake into the drain pipe. The long cord then rotates, cutting away any debris stuck inside before being sent back up the drain. The result is a restored drainage system and smooth water flow.
What is augering?
Augering is another form of drain cleaning that we provide. Unlike snaking, augering is used specifically through your toilet. A long pole with a cable is pushed through your toilet bowl to get any blockages that are stuck between your toilet and the toilet flange.
The blockage will go into your main sewer line and exit your home.
Augering is fast-acting and powerful, making it easier to break up tough clogs in pipes. The tools used are designed to unclog all sizes of drains, meaning no matter what your project looks like, you can trust that proper care and attention will be given to every detail.
If you need urgent drain cleaning help, contact Oak Plumbing, as we offer augering services that will get rid of your clogs fast, producing long-lasting results that keep your home's drainage system flowing.
What is jetting?
Jetting, or hydro jetting is one of the most effective forms of drain cleaning. When your sewer is being hydro jetted, a very high-pressure industrial hose is pushed through your cleanout.
High-pressure jets are used to clear out your line completely. These jets can cut through tree roots and many other materials, leaving your sewer system squeaky clean.
Hydro jetting is an advanced drain-cleaning technology. It involves sending a powerful stream of water through the drainage system to clear away debris and buildup that may clog the pipes or slow down the flow.
This type of service is ideal for commercial establishments with a high volume of waste passing through the drainage system, as it can quickly and effectively remove any blockage.
Hydro jetting can offer long-lasting results, making it an efficient solution for any drainage system needing regular maintenance and clearing. If you are looking for a reliable way to keep your drainage system in tip-top shape, look no further!
Enzymes & Bacteria
What are enzymes & bacteria?
Using enzymes & bacteria to clean your drain is good for the environment and safe for your sewer system. This method may take longer to break down any blockages.
Enzyme & bacteria drain clearing is a cost-effective method.
The active enzymes then eat away whatever is blocking your sewer system. Unlike other liquid drain cleaners that use acids to break down blockages, natural enzymes only target the blockage. In contrast, liquid drain cleaners will continue to eat away at your actual sewer line.
Drain cleaning doesn't always have to be a messy job. Plumbers are now using carefully engineered enzymes and bacteria as a more effective way to clear clogged drains.
This method of drain cleaning is beneficial in many ways. Utilizing enzymes and bacteria does not require harsh chemicals and is safe for both plumbing systems and the environment.
It is also much faster than traditional methods as the enzymes quickly break down debris in your pipes and allow it to flow through freely.
Thanks to these enzymes and bacteria, clogged drains can be cleared without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
How to handle blockage issues in your drains
Numerous problems can arise from a blocked drain. Water may back up in sinks and showers, leading to unpleasant smells coming from the drain or flooding your home.
Flooding in the home can cause extensive damage. Wastewater can ruin carpets, produce an unsanitary environment, and ruin your furnishings.
You may also experience slow drainage as water struggles through the blockage. If left untreated, a blocked drain could eventually lead to pipe bursts. Oak Plumbing can handle your clogs with professional equipment to get the job done faster!
