Got a backed up drain clog in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry or utility room? Have you tried to unclog a sink, toilet or bathtub drain yourself but the clog keeps returning? Let one of our drain cleaning plumbers in Los Angeles clear drain blockage using “Hydro-Jetting” in our Los Angeles plumbing service areas.
Drain Cleaning in Los Angeles
Nothing is more frustrating than a clogged drain, especially if you’ve unsuccessfully tried to unclog the drain using homemade solutions like mixes of bleach and vinegar, salt and baking soda, boiling water, etc.
It’s best to leave it to a drain cleaning plumber to unblock your drain because they use professional tools and methods like hydro-jetting.
The most common warning signs you may have a clogged drain include:
- Sink takes long time to drain
- Water builds up in shower
- Unpleasant smell comes from drain
- Toilet flush leaves scattered debris
When you begin to notice these drain problems, it’s best you contact us immediately to clean your drain with a 30-day guarantee instead of making matters worse, like using a bent wire hanger that gets stuck inside the pipe, or losing an important slip nut while trying to reassemble the drain trap.
You need to remember that many times a clog is not necessarily in the pipe’s trap inside the u-shaped section of pipe directly beneath sink. It could be further down that no standard retail tool like a plunger or drain snake or chemical product will clear. Too often our plumbers will hear customers complain they’ve tried everything themselves but the clog won’t go away. Upon further investigation by using a video camera pipe inspection, our plumbers may discover the clog was very far down the line and nothing the customer bought from a hardware store would have fixed their drain clog.
A clogged drain, if not unclogged properly, can result in more pipe damage, especially if the drain blockage eventually causes a pipe to burst. Then you have water damage which can be very expensive and may not always be covered by homeowner’s insurance if you directly contributed to more damage.
Hydro-Jetting Clogs in Los Angeles
Hydro-jetting is a far better, long-term, and trouble-free drain cleaning solution than a traditional drain snake.
Our hydro-jetting specialists in Los Angeles use high-tech pumps and flexible hoses to direct high pressure water streams to cleanse and unclog pipes, drains, and sewer lines of pipe debris.
Watch the demonstration video how hydro-jetting works. You’ll see a raw chicken and couple heads of cabbage stuck inside a 4″ pipe get blown out. Notice by the end of the video how the high pressure water jetting has spray washed the pipe clean.
Once the hydro jet nozzle is turned on, it actually pulls itself into the pipe. The water pressure leaving the nozzle propels it forward, through the pipe that is not pressured with water.
When the water leaves the hydro jet nozzle, it travels at a very high speed. It is the speed, or velocity of the water, that actually does the cleaning or scouring of the pipe debris. Consequently, the pipe’s original internal diameter is cleaned to normal to allow proper flow and function.
We usually recommend hydro-jetting a clogged drain line or clogged sewer pipe in your Los Angeles home or office when the clog is really bad. We use various sizes of hydro jetters on pipes from 1.25″ wide to 36″ wide to hydro jet any pipe clean.
By using just the right amount of water pressure during the hydro-jetting process, our qualified plumbers can clear and clean a drain line to:
- Dissolve blockages
- Emulsify soaps and grease
- Cut roots
When drain blockage after years of buildup seems impossible, hydro-jetting often saves the customer’s day and money. We provide a 2-year warranty on hydro-jetting plumbing jobs to blast away stubborn debris buildup or clear tree roots from sewer pipes.
