WHAT IS A DRAIN SNAKE?
A plumbing drain snake or auger is a flexible metal tube that’s pushed through a drain until it reaches the blockage and then pushes through whatever is causing the blockage in the pipe. This drain cable is capable of reaching out from 70ft and beyond depending on the length of cable used.
Jetting is often needed when traditional snaking does not clear the blockage. It’s also required prior to sewer lining to remove any debris so that the epoxy lining can bond correctly to the sewer line.
VIDEO CAMERA INSPECTION
TIP: If you have accidentally flushed or dropped something down the drain, a video camera inspections can be used to locate lost items.
Make sure overflow holes on tubs and vanity are clear and in good working order to prevent possible water damage to floors and ceilings from overflowing water.
You can extend the life of your garbage disposal by:
- Using plenty of cold water when running it
- Making sure you avoid overloading it
- Never disposing of things like bones or food scraps
- Never using a chemical drain opener

It is also important not rinse fats or cooking oils down the kitchen sink. These items may solidify in the cold pipes and create clogs.
Avoid using liquid drain openers (like Liquid Plumber or Drano) on a drain that is completely clogged. The acidic ingredients are trapped in your pipes, and it can cause severe damage to them. If you can’t snake the drain yourself, contact a professional to do so.
