What Causes Hidden Water Leaks?

DRAIN CLEARING

What is the difference between sewer unclogging and sewer cleaning?

Sewer unclogging is the process of breaking through and eliminating a clog. Sewer cleaning takes this process one step further and not only eliminates a clog; but also, thoroughly cleans the inside of your pipes and eliminates buildup and debris. Snaking of a clogged drain is always the first and least expensive option to clear a clog. Most ambitious homeowners attempt to snake out the drain by themselves with a large number of them only ending up with hours of aggravation and having spent extra money. Make no mistake. As easy as a professional plumbing drain snaker makes it look, there is a level of skill in handling the drain snaking equipment. Drain Jetters R Us has professional techs who clean drains in all day long.

Storm Catch Basin ClearingS

Is your Storm Basin full of sand, leaves or debris? The Drain Experts will properly maintain these areas helping to avoid costly repairs.

Storm Catch Basin Tips:
1. The bottom of the pipe exiting a catch basin should always be at least 3″
above the debris level. If it’s not, the basin needs cleaning.
Clean the grates on top of the basins regularly, especially in fall when the
leaves come down. These tops get blocked very easily and buried without notice.
Never dump brush, leaves or grass clipping in the discharge area.
Eventually debris will cover the outlet entirely.

Downspout Drains
These drains are designed to channel rain water away from your home’s foundation. Downspout drains are often connected to the city’s storm sewer system. These underground pipes can become clogged with leaves and debris, causing a downspout drain backup. Drain Jetters R Us provides professional drain services to clean downspouts and underground pipes to restore proper drainage and keep flooding at bay.

Types of drains

Floor Drains:

Floor drains are usually found in laundry rooms and garages, as well as patios, driveways and some older bathrooms. Since these drains are typically not used very often, the water in the trap can evaporate, allowing odors to escape into the area. Pour a bucket of water into floor drains to fill the trap and prevent odors, and ensure that the drain flows freely to carry away water and prevent flooding. Floor drains can easily get clogged with dirt and other debris.
