Drain Cleaning and Repair

Drain cleaning service is necessary to call for when you have a seriously clogged drain, but did you know that we also install them? We understand that part of solving the problem of a clogged drain may involve drain replacement or pipe replacement.

Our drain cleaning services prevent those annoying clogged drain problems from recurring in the future. Areas where drain stoppages can frequently occur are in the fixture trap, in the main drain, in the sharp bends and direction changes of the sub drain pipelines, and even in the sewer line. It takes a qualified technician to find the source of the problem and our local professional plumbers have worked in the area and know where to look for the source of the clogged drain. Even if the problem goes all the way to the sewer line, they will find it and unclog the drain in the shortest time possible.

Cable (Snake) Drain Cleaning Service

Drain cleaning service is not just a matter of manpower; you need the right equipment to unclogg a drain as well. At Gold Seal Plumbing, we have every drain cleaning machine from small hand snakes to drain machines capable of cleaning big sewer mains. One of our most powerful and flexible machines, however, are the cable drain cleaning machines (also known as a “Drain Snake”). The cable drain cleaning machines clean the drain or sewer by rotating a flexible cable made of piano wire through the pipe. Attachments on the end of the cable aid in the cleaning process by scraping, boring, cutting, and retrieving the pipe blockage. Each type of pipe blockage requires the proper size cable and cutting head. Not just anyone can use these machines to their full drain cleaning potential. It takes experienced, qualified technicians, and Gold Seal Plumbing has them.

How Do I Know That I Need Sewer Repair?

Sewer repair is needed when your sewer is backed up or starts leaking. This is probably one of the most unpleasant plumbing situations you can encounter, and since this is a much more complicated problem to solve than something like faucet repair, you really need qualified technicians that know what they are doing. This is because, depending on the condition of your sewer pipe, a section of sewer may have to be replaced. To determine if you need to replace a section of sewer pipe, or the entire sewer pipe, a video inspection is performed to assess the condition of your sewer.

Video Inspection

Sewer repair that is performed correctly requires a video inspection. This is when a camera is inserted into the interior of the sewer pipe and sends back live video of the condition and the blockage in your sewer line. Our video inspection equipment is also equipped with locators to determine the location and depth of the sewer line damage from above ground. This allows for spot repairs if possible. Video inspections can tell if you have root intrusion, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe. The pipe must be draining to be able to see within it, so that may be part of the sewer repair that we will have to perform.

Common Sewer Problems

Sewer repair is necessary to remedy certain common problems in older lines. Generally speaking, unless there is some kind of accident, sewer line damage happens over time. One of the main causes of sewer line damage is roots that grow through cracked lines. One small crack in an old sewer line will make it the target for a root system to take hold and block or destroy the pipe. You can use sewer line cleaning to remove roots, but this is only a temporary solution if you have older pipes. If you do have older pipes, sewer line cleaning may actually destroy them. In this case, you will be looking at sewer installation with other materials like plastic.

In our area, from the 1940’s through about 1972 a asphalt impregnated paper pipe called “Orangeburg” was in wide spread use.  This product had about a 50 year maximum life expectancy and, as it decays,  allows root and soil penetration blocking the sewer drains.  Usually, sewer line replacement is the only solution for this product.  If you are buying and older home, make sure the home inspection includes a camera survey of the outside sewer drains.
We are proud to feature Root X. This product kills roots that grow inside pipes without harming the pipe. We would be happy to tell you more about this product.
