Hydro-Jetting
Your drains and pipes can become clogged over time and can cause serious damage and inconvenience. Hydro-jetting is effective because it streams high-pressure water, helping to clear debris and leaving the lines clear. Hydro-jetting has been proven to be one of the most effective techniques. 

Hydro-jetting may be appropriate in the following circumstances:

  • Tree roots
  • Clogs
  • Waste
  • Oil and grease

What is hydrojetting?

Hydrojetting is similar to pressure washing. It pushes water through a nozzle at a high pressure to clean sewer lines and remove debris that is clinging to the pipes.

Hydrojetting is the ideal option to clear out older pipes featuring years of debris and buildup inside. It is also useful for cleaning out pipes that may have cracks where sand and mud have entered.

What are the benefits?

The most effective way to clear stubborn clogs from your sewer line is through hydrojetting:

  • The force of the water will remove even the toughest to reach debris. The pressure is strong enough to break-up obstructions that other methods (such as snaking) leave behind.
  • Unlike chemicals and some power drain snakes, hydrojetting will not damage your pipes. Drain snakes can crack pipes and chemicals can soften PVC pipes but hydrojetting uses only water.
  • By using different types of nozzle attachments, we are able to provide a thorough sewer line cleaning with hydrojetting. This method not only removes solid blockage, it also clears away sludge and mineral deposits.
  • Hydrojetting scours the entire sewer line, which helps keep other debris from attaching to the pipe walls; this means you won’t have to worry about cleaning your pipes as often.

Trap cleaning

Do you own or run a restaurant, hotel or other types of food establishments?  If so, you are likely aware of how important the grease trap is in the operation of your commercial kitchen. Grease traps help to separate the grease from your wastewater, keeping it out of your sewer lines and preventing the buildup which can lead to very serious issues in your plumbing system.

If the trap becomes overfilled or stops working properly, it can lead to the forming of grease and could clog the sewage system. Our plumbing experts can help to resolve your problems quickly!

Pipe snaking
If neither cleaning the trap nor plunging clears a plumbing clog, the next weapon of choice is a drain auger (also known as a snake). This tool is a coiled spiral snake approximately 1/4-inch thick with a handle on one end, which works the opposite way a plunger does.  A plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake farther into the obstruction. While parts of the clog break up and flush through the drain, the snake helps you gain access to the clog so that you can pull it out easier. Some snakes can fit as an attachment on an electric drill, giving it more power to force it through the clog. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are deep within a drainpipe.

 

What are the main perks of this option?

  • Tried and true method – You know it works and does a solid job on most clogs because plumbers have been using it for decades.
  • Easy on the pipes – It is an undisruptive procedure for your pipes (but not the clogs), meaning if you have fragile pipes, this is a great option.
  • Tackles minor clogs easily – When there is just a minor clog to tackle, snaking can easily get the job done and give you back your drain.
  • Exposes plumbing dangers – Since a snake uses pressure to break through clogs, it can alert you to issues like tree roots in your pipes.

Chemical cleaning
Pipe Replacements
Pipes last a long time, but old or worn down pipes can cause a lot of problems for a house. Old pipes are more likely to clog, leak, or even burst, and corroded pipes can displace minerals and other harmful materials into your water supply. If you suspect you might need to get your home’s pipes replaced, don’t wait–especially if your home is older and you don’t know how long it’s been since the pipes were replaced.

1-Tom-Plumber will do a full survey of your plumbing system before making any recommendations. We take only the actions necessary to keep your plumbing functioning at 100%. If we do recommend a total or partial replacement of your pipes, we work with you to determine what form that replacement should take. We consider your home, your budget, your preferences and any other logistical situations before we put together a game plan.
