Drain Cleaning

When your drain is clogged, it is no fun, and taking care of cleaning the pipes can be a real pain in the neck. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what method to use to clear a clogged pipe. If you put off the problem, it only gets worse. More and more debris will cling to the existing clog until you end up with a full blockage and water back up.

If you have already tried a drain-cleaning product to get rid of the FOG in the drain, in other words, the fats, oils, and grease, and it has not worked, you have to call a pro to come in and free up the blockage for you. Remedies at this point include using an auger or snake and hydro jetting.

Drain Snaking

What Is The Plumbing Snake

If a clog is bad, a plumber can use an auger or snake to clear the pipe. A plumbing snake is a flexible, long piece of cable that you can push into the drain. Once it is inside of the drain, you can rotate it around in order to remove the clog. There are two different types of snakes, the naked one (with a grab handle) and one that can cut through clogs with a spiral-shaped cone of wire.

Prevention Is Always Better

Even though a drain snake is going to work on clogs, you should avoid the need for drain scoping and drain repairs with a bit of prevention. Most of the clogs that we see every day are oil and grease-based.

Here is the problem as we see it, you have your dishes in the sink, and the grease residue is moving down into the drain (heading along with your soapy water). Even though the oils and the grease may appear to be gone, they are not just vanishing like magic.

The combination of hot water and detergent ensures that these are kept liquid. However, the moment that the combination stops working, they become solid and begin to settle. This means that the grease is going to start lining your pipes. Once you have this happen, it becomes a trap for bits of food, hair, and anything else that you may (accidently) drop down the drain. Minerals of the water can also lead to a bit of buildup.

Snaking a pipeline is an inexpensive and quick remedy for a bad clog. If the snake fails to clear the bad clog, it is time to break out the big guns and opt for hydro jetting out the drain clog.

High-Pressure Drain Cleaning

When do you need high-pressure drain cleaning service?

Your drain is clogged. You can try the old standby tricks: a plunger, snaking the drain, maybe even using a chemical solution. This clog is persistent. Unfortunately, clogs from sand, grease, sludge, other debris, or even tree roots cannot be loosened with these simple methods. For a case like this, a high-pressure drain cleaning solution may be the best option. 

What is High-Pressure Jetting?

Hydro Jetting involves the process of forcing high-pressure water through the pipes to free up the clog. The method is an affordable and fast remedy that completely clears out your pipes from clogs and debris. The results are often long term and help in extending the life of your pipes. The process is clean as all waste remains in the lines until it is pushed out of them and into the sewer. Mineral build up, hair, grease, and sludge are freed from the interior of the pipes. It is a fast, easy, chemical free means of dealing with difficult pipe blockages.

High-Pressure Drain Cleaning and DIY

It is possible to try a do-it-yourself option for high-pressure drain cleaning service. Many options exist in Ottawa, from purchasing a kit in store or ordering parts online. However, clearing a clog isn’t as simple as point and shoot. Various clogs have different pressure requirement, and using the wrong pressure can have no effect, or cause worse damage.
