DRAIN CLEANING TECHNIQUES

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 blockages. This technique is effective, economical, and environmentally friendly.

Tips for Preventing Clogged Drains

In the bathroom: consider fitting all your tub and shower drains with strainers to help catch hair and soap chips. Don’t forget to clean them regularly!

In the kitchen: when cooking, don’t rinse fats or cooking oils down the kitchen sink. Liquid fats will solidify as the pipes cool, creating clogs. Consider pouring these fats and oils into a heat-safe, disposable container to toss in the trash once the liquid cools.

Around the house: avoid using chemical drain openers such as Drano or Liquid Plumber on drains that are completely clogged. The caustic ingredients in these chemicals can get trapped in your pipes and cause severe damage.
