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.
