Sewer and drain lines inside the house typically comprise two main branch lines: the kitchen, dishwasher, washer, and garage floor drain form one and the bathroom sinks, toilets, showers, and tubs compose the other. Usually inside sewer branch lines are all two inches in diameter with the exception of the drain lines coming from the toilet, which are normally three or four inches. All of the branch lines eventually all join outside the house to one three or four inch in diameter pipeline known as the main line that goes to the city sewer or septic tank.
Clogs and stoppages are due to an obstruction in the drain line that makes the system back up. These obstructions can be anywhere in the sewer and drain system. Normal places for clogs are in the drain lines connected to kitchen and bathroom sinks, dishwashers, toilets, tubs, showers, garage floor drains, and sewer main lines. No matter where a drain clog happens inside or outside of your home, Williams Plumbing can clear it.
For clogs inside the house in the branch lines, the professionals at Williams Plumbing use a sink machine that spins a flexible thin coil cable thru the line to clean and push out whatever is clogging the pipe. If the clog is in the toilet, an auger is typically used to clear the line.
With the stoppage on the outside of the house where the pipe is larger, the main line, Williams’ drain technician uses a larger sewer machine with a flexible hard drawn, high-tensile, strength wire coil cable. On the end is a two-inch blade that turns and twists inside the pipe that attaches to the obstruction and forces and toils it clearing the sewer system.
Hydro Jetter Service
On sewer and drain systems where it is necessary to use additional cleaning measures, Williams Plumbing & Drain Service has hydro (water) jetters to clean inside and outside drain lines. Producing up to 4000 PSI (pounds per square inch) of water pressure, the hydro jetter is safe for all pipes and incorporates a cleaning action that eliminates obstructions that leaves pipelines free and clear.
Additional sewer and drain services
Ninety nine percent of the time a Williams Plumbing experienced technician can clear any obstruction using a sink machine, an auger, a sewer machine, or a hydro jetter unless there is something wrong with the pipe. After trying the proper method of clearing the line with no avail, the pipe must be broken, deteriorated, collapsed, misaligned, or deformed. The next step is finding what is wrong. A Williams’ specialist can inspect the pipeline with the highest technology in line video camera, find out what and where the issue specifically is and then repair or replace the sewer line.
