Drain cleaning is a necessary part of plumbing maintenance. No matter how clean you keep your drains, or the areas surrounding them, there is a pretty good chance they will still get clogged at some point. Over time, items like fats, oils, grease, minerals, dirt, leaves, foreign objects, and tree roots can cause drain clogs. (And don't forget kids! They definitely are the cause of a LOT of drain clogs.)
Regular maintenance of drains and sewer lines can prevent the build up of substances in your drains that can eventually cause costly backups, floods and water damage.
Drain augers are used to dislodge clogs by inserting a coiled metal wire into the affected pipe. As the coil rotates through the pipe it breaks up and dislodges clogged material. Obstacles are broken up by the auger and flushed through the system while others are caught up in the coils and pulled out of the pipe. The coil's edges gently scrape and clean the inside of the pipe removing extra build-up that helps to prevent future clogs. Our technicians have the ability to unclog drains and sewer lines of up to 200 feet from entry.
In-line cameras are used for locating breaks or blockages in water, drain and sewer pipes. An in-line camera is a safe way to inspect the state of your pipes. The specialized camera allows the team of experts at Wiener’s Plumbing to check every part of your plumbing system to accurately diagnose problems or potential problems.
Line Jetting Machines
Line jetting machines use high-pressure water streams through specialized jetting nozzles to dislodge and clear debris, obstructions and unwanted materials. A hose with powerful jets is inserted into the plumbing and water is forced out in a circular motion at high pressure (2,000-4,000 lbs per square inch). Our technicians have the ability to jet lines of up to 120 feet from entry.
