Sewer lines are an important part of today’s society. They provide vital plumbing services thanks to their ability to direct wastewater where we want it versus where we do not. They take waste and move it from the home to main sewer lines, and ultimately direct it to municipal sewage treatment plants. This helps keep our homes and our streets sanitary and functional. In fact, sewer systems are so vital to every day life than homes are not considered complete unless they contain a properly functioning system. They’ve become so ingrained to our day to day life that we take their presence and function for granted.

Perhaps that is why few people spare a thought for their sewer systems until they break down. When an individual is facing a blocked or leaking line that directly affects their home or other property, of course, their attention is quickly focused on the plumbing – and for good reason! These kinds of leaks could do some significant damage to a property’s structure as well as present a serious health hazard.

What happens when drains are clogged?

When your drainage system is clogged, it probably seems like an annoying inconvenience. Some people might not even bother to fix it right away as they only think of it when they immediately need it to work. Allowing your clogged drain to remain clogged can be a huge mistake that can end up costing you time and money to fix! You can’t tell just by giving the system a cursory look why it’s clogged, which means that you might end up with backflows of sewage or even burst pipes, leaking wastewater all over your home and property.

When you think that your drains are clogged, it is time to seek professional help to seek solutions. Clogged drain cleaning services can offer quick and thorough help in order to resolve the problem and restore service to your pipes. Aquatech Waterproofing, for example, can help clear your drain using drain snaking, and we can do so quickly and affordably. We’ll work hard to completely unblock your clogged drains so that you don’t have to deal with damage to your structure or health from the issue.

What is drain snaking?

Drain snaking is probably one of the most effective methods of unclogging drains out there. In order to snake your drain, cutters are attached the metal tip affixed to a long pipe. The rotating blades of the cutters will then cut through any debris and essentially “clear the way” for the water to move freely and as intended.

Drain snaking can help regardless of whether the blockage is minor or major, and the cutters can even work through debris, tough tree roots, and hard substrates to return your drain to proper working order.

How do you know where to snake?

One of the most common questions we receive is how we know where to start snaking a drain. The answer is that we carefully assess the situation and inspect the pipes. We then use our extensive experience and knowledge to identify the best point of access and send the drain snake through the affected areas.

Keep in mind that there are drain snakes created for any manner of size or situation, and we have commercial grade models that can cut through your issue easily and quickly.

What is drain camera inspection?

Sometimes it’s difficult to tell where exactly a pipe is clogged. When this happens, it’s important to do some clogged drain inspection. This is typically done via extensive excavation affecting the entire line, however this is a particularly time consuming, expensive, and inconvenient procedure that can cost the customer quite a bit and cause them to completely stop all plumbing uses until the clog is fixed.

At Aquatech Waterproofing, we have a better idea! We use the latest technology in our clogged drain inspection. Our state of the art CCTV camera system is used to inspect and determine the extent and location of the leaks or blockages. This is a much more precise option than excavating the entire line, and is particularly effective even when there are multiple pipes involved. It’s also less costly and time consuming, which means that you pay less and experience less inconvenience.

Cleaning the Clog

Once we know exactly where the clog is located, we are able to snake the drain in question and start clearing materials from the pipe. With our services, you can quickly get back to your daily life and stop worrying about your plumbing system. We can help clear clogged kitchen sinks, clogged bathtub drains, and clogged toilets – essentially, anywhere there is a clogged pipe, we can help! And the good news is that, since sewer pipes are robust and thick, they rarely require replacement assuming that the clogs are addressed in a timely manner.

Even if they should need replacing, however, our technicians can easily use our CCTV camera system to locate the precise location of the leak in order to cut the area and insert replacement pipe. This leads your pipes and plumbing to resume normal function as quickly and painlessly as possible.
