Reading Time: 3 minutes

When it comes to sewer line clearing, Art Rooter, Sewer & Drain Cleaning have a trio of clog-clearing weapons in their arsenal. Matching the tool to the size and cause of the blockage will make sure that the clog is removed quickly.

Top Three Blockage Blasters

Here are the top three methods of sewer line clearing that our drain technicians use to clear backed up sewer lines.

#1 Snake AKA Rod Or Auger

Snaking the drain clears medium size clogs are easily. An auger is pushed into the drain and then cranked. This is to break up or dislodge the blockage in the pipes. Clogs are broken up or pulled out.

Drain Snake Heads

Traditionally, plumbing snakes either have a coil head or a cutting head. Both are effective for different types of clogs:

  • Coil heads: A thick wire coil enables this drain snake to pick up obstructions and allow them to be carried out of the drain, which is good news if the family heirloom has dropped down the drain, or your child’s favorite toy soldier. As well as retrieving things, coil heads are also effective for sewer line blockages caused by clumps of hair.

  • Cutting heads: If your problem is solid chunks of grease, food, roots, thick wads of leaves, or other solid substances, then your plumbing professional will likely use a drain snake with a cutting head. The sharp blades will slice through solid clogs and break them up and restore flow to your drain.

#2 Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is an option if a drain snake doesn’t clear your sewer line. Hydro jetting – also known as sewer jetting – uses a high-pressure water hose to shift clogs and debris. Drain jetting leaves the interior of your pipes clean and gunk-free.

Key Benefits Of Hydro Jetting

  • Speedy: Sewer line cleaning using hydro jetting is a fast and effective process that removes all clogs, whether big or small.

  • Squeaky Clean Hydro jetting blasts away all the dirt and is an excellent way of cleaning your sewer lines.

  • Safe The key element in hydro jetting is water, which makes it an environmentally friendly solution.

  • Versatile Hydro jetting can be used on all different sized pipes, as well as pipes made from any materials also due to the fact that the chief cleaning agent is water.
  • Removes Build Up Mineral buildup, tree roots, and debris can all accumulate over time in your sewer lines. Hydro jetting removes it all which improves the drainage of your plumbing system.
