Many homeowners, whether in a sink, tub or toilet, are familiar with using a plunger to clear a clogged drain. Some people even resort to pouring dangerous chemical drain cleaners down a clogged drain in hopes that will work. While the plunger may provide a temporary fix to the problem, we highly recommend against the use of chemical drain cleaners. These measures are very often insufficient for proper drain cleaning. Either the clogged drain remains or will re-clog in the future.

St. Petersburg Plumbing – Drain Cleaning Methods
Drain Auger, Drain Snake, Drain Cabling
The most common method in clearing a clogged drain is cabling the drain line with a drain snake or drain auger. Drain cleaning tools range in size based on the size of the pipe and type of clog. For smaller drains in tubs and bathroom sinks using the hand held drain auger can be an effective method for drain cleaning. For bigger drains (kitchens, toilets and main sewer lines), cabling the line will clear the blockage, but is usually only a temporary solution. If there is a buildup of sludge, hair, grease, soap, organic matter and scale on the inside walls of the pipes the blockage will eventually return. After clearing the blockage in the clogged drain, EVERYDAYPLUMBER.com can place a camera in the drain line for a thorough visual inspection. If the camera inspection reveals excessive build up on the pipe walls the plumber will suggest Hydro-Jetting for a more thorough drain cleaning and restoration of drain function.

St. Petersburg Plumber – Drain Jetting / Hydro Jetting
Over time the inside walls of drain lines become coated with grease, soap, sludge, organic matter and scale. Hydro-Jetting is the most effective method of drain cleaning to restore old drain lines to the best possible condition. Hydro-Jetting uses high pressure water (4000 p.s.i.) to clean the inside walls of the drain line and remove scale and build-up from cast iron, PVC, clay, and orangeburg pipes. The combination of the high pressure and water volume provides a drain cleaning unattainable by simply cabling the drain line.
