Sewer Line Cleaning

In Utah, sewer line cleaning from Expert Plumbing – including hydro-jetting and root removal – is the fastest and most effective way to clear your drain clogging problems.

Drain clogs occur when grease, minerals and other pesky substances build up inside the line. Sinks may drain slowly, eventually coming to a stop. In some cases, the problem may even involve tree roots and other debris that has no business being in the sewer line.

Sewer clogs occur when mineral, waste, or foreign objects build up inside of the line. In most cases where the sewer line is backed up, the issue may involve roots, feminine hygiene products, cleaning wipes, toys, or other debris that has no business being in the sewer line.

Expert Plumbing has the technology to break through the clog and restore the flow.

Sewer Line Cleaning with Hydro-Jetting

One of the most effective tools we have to dispatch sewer clogs is hydro-jetting.

Imagine a high-powered water gun placed down the drain. This state-of-the-art equipment shoots highly pressurized water – as much as 4,000 psi in some cases – breaking up the most stubborn clogs.

For those instances where grease and other problematic substances are responsible, we have the option of using super-heated water to blast away the buildup and debris.

When we use an auger (aka, “drain snake”) to handle a clog, the best we can hope for is to punch a hole in the clog, so that water and sewage can drain. This approach doesn’t typically help much with the buildup inside the pipe.

The best part about hydro-jetting is that it blasts away the buildup that would otherwise remain, making it less likely that the problem will recur in the near future.

Remove Tree Roots from Sewer Lines

As much as we enjoy our landscaping trees, bushes and shrubberies, their root systems can wreak havoc with our sewer lines over time. It’s a simple fact of nature and, if your house is a few decades old (or more), this problem becomes more of a threat.

Fortunately, our experienced team can often provide a solution that doesn’t require digging up your yard or breaking out concrete. Hydro-jetting can, in many cases, clear out those pesky tree roots that have infiltrated the sewer line and started causing a backup. This is especially true if we can catch the problem early.

Along with hydro jetting tree roots, our Expert Technicians can keep roots at bay through chemical root killer treatments and liners.

Trust Utah’s Sewer Line Cleaning Experts

The problem that many homeowners experience is the temptation to try DIY sewer cleaning first – typically using harsh or even caustic chemicals. Avoid this temptation at all costs; it can cause more harm. Instead, call on the Expert Plumbing team first.

Harsh chemicals can damage or even destroy your sewer pipes and connections, leading to an even more expensive repair. And, if you aren’t careful, these toxins can cause a backup in the line, potentially erupting out of the drains in other parts of the home or, worse, bubbling up through the vent system. If this happens, it can cause major damage to your home. Wildlife, pets or even members of your family could potentially be harmed.
