Since we know what’s probably going on in your pipes, your drains can be a slow-motion horror movie to us. We know that your pipes, like most people’s, handle all sorts of material including grease, hair, soap residue, and a variety of other natural and consumer products depending on which drain we’re talking about. Pilot Plumbing’s drain cleaning service for our Battle Ground, WA area customers often gets the call, like a CSI team, to investigate the aftermath of years of normal sink use that have slowly narrowed the pipes with scary linings, and finally reached their limit and clogged. We’re experts at clearing clogged drain emergencies too, but there’s a better way.
High-Tech and Low-Tech for the Best Plumbing Results
We customers call, we investigate, find the culprit such as a deep clog in the wall or a plastic toy in the toilet trap, and use our arsenal of basic and high-tech tools to set things right. It makes our drain cleaning service sound exciting but, as you know, it’s really just a job that has to be done. What not everyone does know, though, is that getting your drains cleaned regularly can prevent the drama and just keep them clean and mostly uneventful. That sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? More and more of our Battle Ground, WA customers are scheduling regular service by our Pilot Plumbing and Drain team, and instead of emergency plumbing calls, it’s at their convenience.
Scoping, Cleaning, and Blasting Through Your Clogs For Healthy Drains
Whether you have years of accumulated gunk that have finally come to a head or a sudden jam in your toilet, our team has strategies to identify and clean the problem from your pipes. We have video inspection equipment that can visually confirm the location and type of clog, and even make sure that, once the clog is cleared, there isn’t another one almost blocking the drain just a bit further down. Our mechanical drain cleaning service equipment is complemented by high pressure hydro jetting gear that allows us to blast clear narrowed drain pipes once we have visually confirmed that the pipes are strong enough for this powerful technique. We use similar approaches to perform our thorough drain cleaning service throughout your house, leaving your pipes back at their original flow capacity. If there are any concerns about the pipes’ condition, our process will also provide information about what services might be needed to strengthen them in the future.
Our Drain Cleaning Service is Perfect for Sewer Lines, Too
Sewer lines can be in place for fifty years or more, accumulating a wide range of material and subject to corrosion, degradation, and damage from outside such as tree root growth or heavy equipment operating on your property. As with your sink drains, traps, and whole-house drain pipes, we inspect your sewer, hydro-jet if appropriate to clear ancient clogs, and make note of any issues with the condition of the sewer pipe. Knowing how your sewer pipe is doing is an important tool in planning your home maintenance, since your sewer pipe’s proper operation is essential to your health and your home’s condition. Fortunately, the earlier we catch problems these days, the more ways we can address sewer pipe problems with techniques like internal patching and relining that require only a small amount of digging to gain access for the repair machinery, not the familiar backhoe project that was the only real solution for sewer pipe failure in the past.
Ways That You Can Identify the Urgent Need for a Sewer or Drain Cleaning Service
Sometimes you can avoid an emergency plumbing call by noticing developing situations around your home. If one drain is emptying slowly, of course, we can come and clean it out so that it flows more smoothly. Sometimes, it’s a simple matter of removing hair from a shower drain or clearing out an under-sink trap. If your kitchen sink is slow and you have a garbage disposal, leave it to us for safety’s sake. We’ll check the disposal as well as the sink plumbing and make sure that nothing is getting in the way of free-flowing drain water. Don’t forget, certain foods don’t go down disposals in large quantities, because they expand when wet and block the sink trap. These are foods such as rice and pasta.
Several slow sinks upstairs in your home probably indicates a restricted drain pipe in the wall between floors. It’s a good idea to have us clear that clog before you have multiple messy sink backups as drain and toilet water can’t go down to the sewer and try to find another way out of your plumbing. Backups in your basement, especially dirty-looking water, often when the sink hasn’t been used recently, and especially when it’s been raining heavily, can be signs that your sewer has major issues and needs urgent attention. An emergency or urgent plumbing call is a wise idea to avoid potential basement contamination issues and messy cleanup. We’re ready to help.
Lost Items, Problems with Sink Stopper Mechanisms, and Other Drain-Related Issues
Just as we can find the cause of a clog, if your valuable item has gone down the drain, we have the tools to look for it while leaving your pipes intact. If it’s still in the P-trap below your sink, it’s probably not hard to extract it and make your day. Further down the line success may be more elusive, but you never know. We also maintain built-in sink stoppers and add strainers so you can avoid having valuable or large items fall into the drain.
