Gastonia Drain Cleaning
You most likely have a clog or are interested in learning more about them if you are here. Whether your sink, toilet, or entire house is clogged, we can assist you. One of the most urgent problems to fix is clogged drains, right up there with summertime AC failure. They might stop you from using the restroom, taking a shower, doing the dishes, or even washing your hands. There are a variety of things that might cause clogs, such as grease in the sink, “flushable wipes,” tampons, roots, sagging pipes, hair, and occasionally even children’s toys. If you have an emergency, call us, your 24-hour plumber, as we have plumbers ready on call.
Your sewer pipes’ biggest problem is grease. especially if it is placed in a septic tank. As grease is spilled down your drain, it will condense and solidify in the p-traps and at the bottom of the pipe, making it more difficult for particles to flow by and creating an obstruction that necessitates cleaning. If the grease buildup is severe enough, replacing the line might be the only option to get it clean. Together with using anti-grease soap, hot water can also be poured down the drain to clean it. It dissolves in the water and is washed away with the aid of soap. Septic tanks, though, are distinct. The grease will still condense in your pipes and p-traps, yes. It may solidify when it gets to your septic tank and prevent the draining, resulting in a standstill. It will occasionally find its way into your drain fills, which cannot be cleaned by a machine. Because of the thousands of dollars in potential repair charges, you will have to personally dig them up. Never pour grease down a septic tank line, according to advice. Grease is one of the primary causes of many of the septic tank issues in Gastonia, North Carolina.
Another significant problem is flushable wipes. They are one of the most frequent causes of drain problems even though they are supposedly flushable. Someone might read a box that says “flushable” without taking into account the fact that they are not broken down in the sewage system like toilet paper. They stick to pipe bends, generating clogs that inevitably get bigger and bigger until you call us. Another aspect of the problem is tampons. They have a very high potential for clogging your toilet when flushed down the toilet. They are comparable to “flushable wipes” in that they will likewise stick to obstacles and accumulate.
Sink clogs can be resolved rather easily; buildup, hair, and other obstacles can cause them to get blocked. The majority of clogs can be removed by inserting a hair snake into the drain to clear this. We would have to unclog the p-trap and remove it if we were called to the scene. You need to be a licensed plumber or be an apprentice to perform this kind of job. Due to the sewer gas leaks, which are hazardous if inhaled, a permission must be obtained. You are protected from the sewer gases by the p-water trap’s barrier, so removing it without a plumber’s supervision could put you in danger.
We utilize a device known as a toilet auger for larger problems like a clogged toilet. It has a cable on the end that is about 6 feet long, long enough to pass into the toilet and strike anything in the path. We need to utilize a drain equipment weighing more than 150 pounds for bigger problems like your entire house being clogged. To clear the line, we’ll either use a cleanout in the yard or crack up your tallest fixture, like a roof vent or toilet. Your main sewer line may have belly (sagging pipe) or roots if it is frequently clogged up. Only by digging up the pipe and fixing it can you get rid of the roots or remove the sag, therefore these problems must be fixed in order to permanently solve the problem.
A belly happens when a section of soil was not adequately compacted, causing the pipe to droop. This happens when your sewer line is not properly “bedded” in the soil. In essence, the soil sagged because it never fully cemented. As a result, the pipe can sag and lose all support from the earth above. If the procedure is not done correctly, a belly can occur the day it was implanted. The majority of homeowners don’t know and typically don’t care what happens in the sewer system. If a line has frequently blocked, we advise videotaping it after we clean it to make sure the pipes aren’t drooping and there aren’t any roots in the line. Taking care of the problem immediately will save you time and money rather than having to pay to clean it again. It typically calls for us to replace the pipe’s drooping segment.
As sewage seeps through a small hole in the ground, roots start to sprout; as soon as plants become aware of the nutrient-rich water, they start to grow in the direction the water is coming from. Even a tiny root that manages to get through will start to grow bigger and bigger as it feeds off your sewage like a flame on gasoline. Until you fix that portion, it will continue to expand. Roots will completely encircle a pipe until there is absolutely no room for anything to move through. In these situations, each time a drain from a machine is opened. It merely serves to make a short-term transit. When roots reach this size, they regenerate swiftly. If you’re going to do something, do it correctly, as they say in the plumbing industry.
Sewer Camera Inspection
The majority of you would like to maintain the myth that you have never seen the interior of your pipes. To find out if your line has any roots, bellys, or breaks, a sewer inspection is the most straightforward method. In order to find the right access, we must first clear the line if it is clogged. If we discover an impediment, we will pinpoint it using a cutting-edge locating technology that will tell us how deep the line is. With the use of this apparatus, we can easily locate any sewer clog. Or you might use our Superior Service Agreement to receive a free inspection each year!
A sewage jetter is a 3000–5000 psi high-pressure hose that is inserted into the sewer pipe and can cut through any obstruction. Even the most formidable barrier can be overcome with this amount of pressure. Jetters are dispatched to lines that require thorough cleaning and don’t have any invading roots. While they do a great job of cutting through them, they nonetheless soon regrow. Hence, you are wasting money by doing a quick patch rather than a thorough repair. In commercial plumbing applications, jetters also function quite effectively. Jetters are your greatest option for clearing away the buildup in your piping on restaurants with grease-filled lines to factories and mills. It’s a quick technique that will give you results right away.

If your drains got clogged and water can’t get through them or you are smelling an odor, give us a call or fill out the contact form and we’ll get your drains working properly asap.
Causes: The most common culprits are grease poured down the kitchen sink drain as well as food particles, hair in the shower drain, soap, etc. All of these things can get stuck on the side of the drain pipe and clog it, which can lead to some serious problems. This is why, whenever you notice that the water is not draining as fast as it used to or it’s backing up, you will have to call a drain contractor. You can hire one from our company and get your drains clean within a short amount of time.
If the issue is only a clog then we can knock it out within an hour, at most two hours.
How much do your services cost?
We charge a $45 service fee to give an estimate which will be waived at the time of work. Our prices for drain cleaning begin at $175 depending on the time to knock it out and the size of the pipe. This price is not set and must be determined by a professional before an accurate price is given.
How do I prevent the issue from happening again?
Do not pour grease down sink
Do not put uneaten food into garbage disposal
Do not flush “flushable wipes”
Take it easy on the toilet paper
Do not flush tampons
Clean hair out of your drain
If these methods do not work then you may have a break or roots in your sewer line. This requires us to replace the section of pipe that is damaged.
