Each of our technicians is equipped with several machines designed to work on specific drains. In many cases, we use commercial grade electric snake machines to clear a drain blockage. These machines use a metal cable to enter the line and break through the clog, scraping the pipe clean. The motors spins the cable as it pushes forward allowing it to build torque which helps break through tough clogs.
For larger drains, we use high pressure water jets that break up and remove clogs by spraying water at 4,000 psi. Water jet machines have a hose that our technicians place down your drain. The hose has a special attachment at the end that sprays a stream (or cone) of water that blasts debris out of the pipe.
We sometimes use video inspection equipment to see the inside of your pipes. A monitor displays the video and records it to a DVD. If there’s a clog, the camera head will make a sound that allows us to locate the location and depth inside the pipe.
