Information on Drain Cleaning and Stoppages

Clogged sinkA stoppage or blockage is a sewer or drain pipe that is obstructed, thus preventing the flow of waste water to the septic tank or city sewer system. We will most frequently solve this with a simple snake out. In some situations, stoppages or drain pipe blockage may occur frequently or repeatedly and become a persistent problem. Recurring stoppages or sewer pipe blockages are a symptom indicating a direct cause. Some drain pipe blockages will affect only one area of the home or building. This indicates that the sewer or septic drain pipe obstruction or stoppage is located downstream of the affected area or a clogged plumbing fixture such as a bathtub, sink, toilet shower. Common causes of repeated persistent clogged sewer or drain pipes are: tree roots, age related wear and corrosion or back pitched underground drainage piping. Back pitched sewer pipes causing repeated sewage back-ups can be caused by improper installation or structural settling we will employ various equipment and testing methods to accurately diagnose the cause of repeat stoppages and repeat sewage backups.
