Any Drain, Any Time!
Drain cleaning can be messy, so it’s important to keep the work area clean and safe on every job. At Choice Plumbing and Emergency Drain Services we guarantee to properly diagnose the problem before beginning to clean the pipes.
Just like a doctor, our technicians will start by asking the homeowner or the manager a few questions:
- Which drains are clogged? Is it a partial or a whole house backup?
- Is it an ongoing issue that keeps returning?
- Is the home or building on city sewer or septic tank? Or a grease tank?
- Did anyone put any chemicals or drain cleaning products down the drain?
- Does the main drain line flow from the back of the building, the side or the front?
- What is the estimated main sewer line run?
Proper Course of Action
Asking these questions is what sets Choice Plumbers apart from other Orlando plumbers. Once we diagnose the problem, we would then decide on the right sewer machine or tool to use for the job. To clean an inside drain clog like a bathtub, shower or bathroom sink, our plumber will use a small electric drum machine with a cable to access the small drain lines. If it is a whole house or a building that is backed up or back flowing we will then use a large electric sewer machine with a large steel sectional cable that can clear lines from 3” to 6” in diameter.
Do you have clogged drains?
Imagine coming home from a long, hard day at work just to discover that your sink is overflowing! The culprit: clogged drains!!
Clogged drains can be caused a number of issues. Hair, grease,fat and foreign objects can all contribute to blocked drains. Tree roots can also cause problems with drain pipes. Roots are drawn to the nearest source of water, which can attract them to pipes and eventually penetrate the line and cause blockages. Pipes that were installed a long time ago can also cause problems. A rotten fitting on old cast iron pipes can cause an obstruction in the pipe and lead to a backup. Decaying terra cotta pipes can also collapse underground and prompt clogs.
