When water is brought into your home via the main water line it is diverted to the various fixtures throughout the house for you and your family to use as needed. Once you have washed a sink full of dishes or taken a shower that used water has to have somewhere to go. This is where the drainage system of your home comes into play. Just as there is a portion of your plumbing system to bring clean water into your home, there is also a portion of the system designed to carry used water away from your home.
The draining system of your home is very important because gray water can have high levels of dangerous bacteria contained in it, which need to be carried to the main sewer line and to a treatment and disposal location. The first step to an effective draining system is to maintain clear flowing drains, this means being mindful of what is being rinsed down the drain.
Whether it is a drain in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room various products rinsed down the drain along with the water can eventually develop into a clog or blockage. For instance, shaving cream in the bathroom sink or shower can sit in the drainage system and being to harden and develop into a plaster type material, which will quickly block the drain.
Luckily, the outstanding plumbers at Call Clint Plumbing of Mt. Kisco have a thorough understanding of each part of your plumbing system and know how they all work together. We know how to implement all of the latest drain cleaning techniques and how to operate the various pieces of equipment that will thoroughly and efficiently clean your drains.
- 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 bulkier and much heavier to transport, however, they work quickly to reach the clog and move it through.
All of these pieces of equipment are versatile in that they can both clear a clog and provide a good maintenance cleaning of your drain system.
