Drain Clearing & Inspection

Fast and Cost-Efficient Drain Clearing Services

As water and debris swirl through your home’s plumbing each day, it’s likely that your drains will become clogged at some point. Drains in tubs, toilets, dishwashers and other appliances, sinks and more become clogged with a buildup of hair, waste, and even objects that might get accidentally sent down the drain.

While a quick fix might come about with chemical solutions and some store-bought products, these only offer temporary solutions. Worse yet, many store-bought drain chemicals may actually end up damaging your plumbing.

How Do You Determine What Kind of Drain Clearing is Necessary?

Graybill Services Group is very thorough in sewer line inspection and plumbing inspections. Determining the scope of the problem in a drain and/or a sewer line then determines the best and fastest course of action to clear the drain.

Drain camera inspections are often involved in the process. Running a specially made waterproof video camera through your house’s sewer pipes, starting in the house and running right up to the municipal line, can give a close-up view of the condition and type of underground pipes. Additionally, these plumbing camera inspections are key in identifying problems like leaking or broken joints, collapsed pipes, corrosion, or blockages due to tree roots intruding into the pipe.

Drain camera inspections are also used in more unusual circumstances to find lost jewelry and other items that have accidentally been flushed down pipes.

Additionally, you may wish to have a plumbing camera inspection done if you’re considering adding an addition on to your home. Drain camera inspections are often recommended prior to starting plumbing renovations that include adding a bathroom or remodeling an existing bathroom or kitchen to ensure your sewer line can handle the increased volume and usage.

No matter the cause, the size, or the stubbornness of the drain obstruction, Graybill Services Group can assess the situation with a thorough sewer line inspection and quickly engage in the drain clearing process that most effectively deals with the problem.

Drain Snaking to Clear Obstructions

A plumbing or drain snake is a tool used to remove clogs that block drains and piping. While it may look similar to a hose, it has a different purpose. A plumbing snake is a long, flexible metal cable with a small spring or auger at the end.

Drain snaking is typically employed when the clog is too big for a plunger to solve. These tools are more powerful than plungers, but they are trickier to use. Plumbing snakes can be used on tub and shower drains, kitchen sinks, and bathroom sinks. Toilets require a particular toilet snake, so it is unsafe to use a typical plumbing snake for these clogs.

Many homeowners are adept at using plumbing snakes for smaller obstructions. But when the job becomes too hard or too messy, put Graybill’s experienced team to work for drain snaking jobs that are more of a challenge than you wish to handle on your own.

Drain Clearing to Eliminate Hard Deposits

A common cause of drain blockages is hard deposits from water. These deposits can naturally build up in your pipes over time and are almost always resistant to typical consumer drain cleaners. If your pipes currently contain deposits, even after they are cleared, there is a strong possibility that they will be back. The Graybill team often employs sewer jets to clear hard deposits and sewer blockages. Water jetting systems deliver highly pressurized water directly into your drains and sewer pipes, instantly clearing away any deposits or debris.
