Drain Cleaning & Clogged Drain Repair Services in Schenectady

When you turn the faucet on and water comes out there is actually a very sophisticated configuration of pipes, drains, and valves that make that happens. The same goes for when you pull the plug on the bathtub, or rinse water down the bathroom sink while you are shaving. All of the used water is carried away from your home through a drain system that connects to the main sewer line. In fact, each sink and fixture in your home has its own drain and is individually connected to the same main sewer pipe.

The drain system is built to carry used or “gray” water away from your home efficiently so as to maintain cleanliness and the health of your family. However, when things like soap, food, grease, and health and beauty aids are rinsed down the drain with the water, they can easily overwhelm your drain system and eventually cause a blockage, which results in used water fill a basin in your home.

Because of the dangers of Salmonella, e.Coli, and other bacteria that could be growing in this gray water, it is important to have drain clogs addressed quickly and by a professional. Thankfully, the highly-trained team of plumbing experts at Call Clint Plumbing of Schenectady have the extensive knowledge of all of the latest plumbing techniques and equipment to effectively address your drain cleaning needs.

Some of the tools that each of our Schenectady vans are regularly stocked with include:

  • Sectional Cable Machines: These systems use several sections of cables that extend up to 15 feet in length to feed into the drain and rotate in a scrubbing motion to release any materials that are forming the clog. These machines are easily transported and work well in small spaces, however, they are not always the best tool for the job as they take a little longer to clean the pipe because the plumber has to attach and unattach the sections of cable. The machine itself is compact and easily transported.
  • Jetting: A jetting machine uses highly pressurized water to move a clog through the pipe. This system involves threading a hose into the drain and then spraying water through tiny nozzles to breakup any residue, corrosion, or blockage from the inside lining of your pipes. This process will effectively clear the blockage as well as return the condition of your pipes to like-new.
  • Continuous Cable Machines: These systems have a continuous cable, usually extending up to 100 feet or more, and does not require additional sections of cable. They are more bulky and much heavier to transport, however, they work quickly to reach the clog and move it through.
