Sewer Clearing/Cleaning

Having a backed up sewer line can cause problems all over your home and can be an emergency. At General Rooter, we understand the urgency of these types of problems and are here to help. The sewer line runs from your home out to the city’s sewer or your septic tank. The main causes of backups include tree roots, wipes, and feminine products. It is recommended that you get your sewer cleaned every one to two years to help prevent larger issues in the future.

Video Camera Inspection of Sewer

Camera inspections in sewer lines are often a cost effective way to diagnose what the problem is. We use the best technology that involves a camera on the end of a fiber optic cable so we can know where and what the problem is. This is a great way to see for yourself what the sewer looks like and how we can fix them. Schedule your sewer video inspection today!

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting, otherwise known as sewer jetting or water jetting, is a safe, efficient, environmentally friendly, and non-invasive drain cleaning system. This helps homeowners to restore and keep their plumbing's drainage system healthy, clean, and free from hazardous and stubborn blockages. Hydro jetting can be used to maintain drains or clear blockages on residential, commercial, or municipal sewer drainage systems.

All other drain clearing systems may be able to tackle blockage problems, but do not have the added advantage of cleaning the sewer line and keeping it in the best possible condition.

Blocked sewer lines cause major disruptions to households and they are incredibly unhygienic, so they need to be unblocked immediately. For many years, homeowners have tried using regular plumbing tools or chemical drain cleaners to resolve the problem, only to have the sewer block again after a few days or weeks. Cue the need for Hydro jetting.

Drain specialists have realized that blocked sewers can become a chronic problem unless the blockage is completely cleared and the sewer is cleaned and maintained regularly. Don't be surprised if the next time you call a Professional for a blocked sewer, he recommends Hydro jetting.

Grease-Trap Cleaning

Grease trap lines are used to transport grease usually from restaurants to a grease tank. This is important to keep clean and functioning properly to avoid backups and clogs that can cause your kitchen to not function properly as a result. Grease is highly corrosive as the lines require regular cleaning. This is where General Rooter can help! A hydro jet cleaning is often the best option to ensure the entire pipe gets cleared.
