Clearing a drain clog requires a professional, qualified technician to find the source of the problem and unclog the drain in a timely manner. While do-it-yourself remedies may temporarily fix the clog, these temporary fixes can often lead to bigger problems and can even cause pipe damage down the road. Bulldog Rooter technicians have the experience and equipment needed to fix drain clogs without damaging your pipes or property.

DRAIN CLEANING TECHNIQUES:

Cable (Plumber’s Snake) Drain Cleaning: 
Drain cleaning often requires special equipment to properly unclog a stoppage that cannot be loosened with a simple plunger. One tool Bulldog Rooter uses to unclog drains is the cable drain cleaner or the “plumber’s snake.” This tool is a flexible auger of coiled metal wire. The plumber’s snake functions with a crank and rotates as it moves through the drain or sewer to break apart the clog. Depending on the clog, a hand auger, closet auger, drum auger or electric auger can be used. 

High-Pressure Water Jetting:
High-pressure water jetting is another effective and safe technique that can be used to clean drain and sewer pipes. A water jetter is designed to blast high-pressure water through a specialized, flexible hose to clear away drain blockage and allow water to run freely though the pipes. This technique is economical and environmentally friendly as ordinary water is used. Water jetters are a very effective tool for drain cleaning. 

TIPS FOR PREVENTING CLOGGED DRAINS:

  • In the bathroom…to help prevent clogs in the bathroom, consider fitting all your tubs and shower drains with a strainer to help catch hair and soap chips. Don’t forget to clean the strainer regularly!
  • In the kitchen…when cooking, don’t rinse fats or cooking oils down the kitchen sink. Liquid fats will solidify as the pipes cool, creating clogs. Consider pouring these fats and oils into a heat-safe, disposable container to toss in the trash once the liquid cools. 
  • Around the house…avoid using caustic, liquid drain openers (such as Drano or Liquid Plumber) on a drain that is completely clogged. The caustic ingredients are trapped in your pipes, and can cause severe damage.
