How quickly should I expect drain cleaning service for a clog Some drain cleaning companies make promises they cannot fulfill such as service in one hour or less. The timeliness of the sewer cleaning service provided depends on a number of factors. The size of the sewer cleaning company the area they service and their in-house infrastructure are just some factors that determine the response time. A reputable drain cleaning company should be able to provide an accurate response time to within a half an hour. If delays occur advanced notice provided to the client is the industry norm. Most service should be able to be provided in one to two hours. This accounts for travel time as well. You would always verify that you are in the What should I expect to pay for sewer and water main cleaning drain company’s service area. Often an exact price is only determined once the nature and the extent of the problem is diagnosed. However be forewarned that many firms are reluctant to give a price and have various contingencies in place in order to change the price after it is quoted.

You should expect to pay what you were quoted with any changes mutually approved. Unless some obvious and unforeseen condition exists the price should remain intact. If addition equipment is needed or the reported condition changes it may be reasonable to expect a change in the quoted price. If you hear the technician saying things such as “I need the big machine” or “It is further out than what I thought” it may be one of those times. How do I deal with tree roots in a drain line If tree roots are present in a drain line it is imperative to take action prior to having a complete blockage. Once the water stops flowing in a pipe many products can no longer be used. Copper sulfate and the product Root-X are commonly used to kill roots inside a drain pipe. However they only work if there is a flow of water. Once completely blocked by roots a drain cleaning machine can frequently open the pipe up on a temporary basis. Future cleanings will be needed and a possible sewer repair or replacement may be inevitable. Once roots are present it is almost impossible for a sewer cleaning machine to cut them all out or for the roots to not grow in again. Can I prevent clogged drain lines

slide 4:

There are various ways to help prevent clogged drain lines. They range from common-sense steps like not putting grease excessive soap or food down the drain. To placing a strainer on the end of a washing machine drain hose to catch lint and other objects. Placing a strainer on bathtub and shower drains is also a good idea. Catching hair and other objects before they go down your drain will prevent the need for frequent drain cleaning. What is water jetting A water jet sends highly pressurized water through a nozzle at the end of a hose which is inserted into the drain line. Water jetting is a relatively recent addition to the array of tools available for drain cleaning service. Water jetting is ideal for removing grease stoppages from inside a drain pipe. Using a traditional drain cleaning machine typically serves no purpose in dealing with a grease stoppage. A sewer cleaning machine blade will spin around inside the grease stoppage but have no effect in removing it. This is also the case when sediment or debris is inside a drain pipe. In these two particular cases a water jet can be advisable. In many other cases it is an added drain cleaning expense that provides no additional benefit.
