The main water line for your house is designed to bring fresh, clean water to you and your family. Likewise, the main sewer line is designed to carry the used or “gray” water away from your home. To help with this process, your plumbing system is configured with pipes and drains to divert the water from each fixture and eventually to the main line.
The entire drainage section of your plumbing system is hidden in the walls and under the floor of your home, so it is not surprising that most people don’t think about it, of even know it’s there! However, if you are not mindful of rinsing things like hair, soap, shaving cream, and grease down the drains of your home, your plumbing system will develop a clog, which could lead to bacteria-laden water overflowing and causing significant damage.
Luckily, the clean and professional plumbers at Call Clint Plumbing have been providing homeowners of Peekskill with thorough and effective drain cleaning services for years. Each member of our team is dedicated to helping you learn about your drain system and how to best avoid clogs. We understand the stress and disruption that a drain clog will cause your family, and that is why we maintain extensive training on all of the most current drain cleaning techniques and equipment:
- 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.
It is highly recommended that you schedule regular drain cleaning appointments to be performed by a professional. This helps to reduce the chances of clogs from forming as well as keeping your drains in proper working order so they can carry the gray water away from your home.
