How to Get Your Drains Running Smoothly Again: Snaking and Jetting
You may or may not know about the options out there for drain cleaning. If you are experiencing clogs, you can’t always assume it’s your septic system because it could simply be a drain issue. You need the assistance of a skilled professional who can accurately detect the problem and solve it quickly. Once you’ve determined it is indeed a drain issue, it will save you time and money in the long run to allow a provider like Wind River to handle the problem. So what you can expect from our professional drain cleaning services?
The technician will ask questions to help them narrow down the problem, and talking to customers gives them valuable information to start. They may utilize video camera equipment to pinpoint an exact problem area that can’t be seen externally. For example, a break or clog in your pipes is easily seen by video technology allowing the technician to go directly to the spot needing treatment. This saves a tremendous amount of time and money if you consider what you’d pay a plumber by the hour who does not have this tool.
For soft blockages, we use snaking to clear your drain. This is where a flexible auger forces its way through your pipes using its helical blade head to cut through waste and debris much like a screwdriver. You can manually force the snake, but this can be very difficult and time consuming. Our snakes are motorized and come in long lengths to reach faraway clogs.
For tougher blockages, we might use jetting. This is a more powerful type of drain cleaning that uses water pressure to power through drains. Concentrated water is forced out at 2000 to 4000 pounds per square inch which is strong enough to remove anything that may be in your pipes. This includes caked on debris, grease, and even tree roots. Water jetting also serves as an effective means of preventative maintenance.
Keep Drains Running Smoothly
