Are your drains clogging all time? Do you have bad odors in the kitchen or laundry area? We can help. We provide professional drain and sewer cleaning service to all San Diego County around the clock.
Drain and Sewer cleaning is a rather specialized area and not something you should attempt to do by yourself. There is a lot of health risks associated with drain cleaning, especially in sewer drains. Over-the-counter products that contain acid can seriously damage your drain system and they also destroy the environment. Drain cleaning companies like us consist of professionals who are highly skilled in what they do; we offer free camera inspection with any drain cleaning service in San Diego County. So you can see the problem areas yourself. We will even leave you the recorded DVD. Blue Planet Drains and Plumbing thrives on customer satisfaction and professionalism. Our equipment, experience, and affordable pricing set us apart from the competition. We offer 24/7 fast-response emergency drain and sewer cleaning services to all of San Diego County.
Drain and sewer problems are stressful, when you call us for a blocked drain, clogged shower, or sewer line problem the first thing we will do is to ask you a few questions. Like where is the water coming from? Is it the fixtures or is it through the toilet? This helps us understand and asses the problem so we can send the proper technician with the right equipment. Our response time for drain and sewer emergencies is usually less than an hour.
When we arrive the first thing we have to do is access the drain. If you have clean-out access this will allow us to penetrate the line with our machine. If you do not have clean-out access we will use other methods like p-traps to access the line differently. When it comes to sewer and drain cleaning equipment is very important to get the job done right. We use top-of-the-line Ridgid cameras along with a powerful Spartan hydro-jetting machine to get the job done.
There are many ways to clear or clean a drain. Although it might sound the same there is a difference between clearing a drain and cleaning a drain.
Cabling the line (clearing the drain)
The most common method of clearing a drain is cabling the drain line. This will clear the blockage but if the line has a lot of sludge and other build-up (commonly in kitchen and laundry drains) cabling the line will solve the problem temporarily. If we see a lot of black or white sludge on the cable we will suggest hydrojetting.
Hydro jet is a machine that clears the drain but also removes the buildup. By hydrojetting we can restore the pipe to the maximum capacity especially if it is a cast iron pipe. We give a year warranty to residential customers for hydrojetting.
A combination of both of these methods is the most effective way to get rid of your drain problems. Hydro jetting is very effective for kitchen drains which can cause bad odors in the house due to grease and other types of sludge build-up. Cabling is effective for bathtub and shower drains which cannot be hydrojetted. Most blockages in showers and bathtubs are caused by hair and soap scum which can be easily removed by cabling the line.
