Interior Drain Cleaning and Rodding:
Bathrooms are the most common drains in your home that need cleaning; hair, soap and scum build on the walls of your interior pipe drains. In the kitchen the sinks usually get clogged from food and soap scum as well. Laundry drains can get clogged with lint and dirt from clothes, so routine maintenance is necessary for these drains as well.
Interior Rodding Cleanout:
Rodding from an interior cleanout is to be done from a pipe accessed either in the basement or a crawl space. There is typically a four-inch cleanout access located on the sewer stack or possibly on the floor. Interior access and rodding cleanouts are required if you do not have proper access from outside.
Exterior Rodding Cleanout:
This should be every homeowner’s first investment if it doesn’t already have one. An outside access area allows you to rod your sewer with better efficiency then from the inside because the sewer is bigger outside then inside and thus, easier to clean. Outside piping is 6 inches in diameter so we rod those pipes with a 6 inch cutter. This makes for easier and faster maintenance in the event of any future sewer back ups and/or clogs.
Exterior Jetting Cleanout:
This is exercised when our technician or plumber determines that the sewer is extremely blocked; usually with tree roots or if it’s extremely slugged up with muck and mud so thick that it wont allow water to penetrate and properly drain out.
Exterior Cleanout Extensive Rodding:
This is common for any residents who don’t know or understand what tree roots do. Some don’t know that routine maintenance is needed to keep proper drain flow. When there is years and years of sewage build up extensive exterior rodding is needed, rather then a regular maintenance call. A 2, 3, 4 and 6-inch cutter will all be used in sequence to gradually cut the roots. You never put a 6-inch cutter into a sewer that has a root infestation because it will never make it through. So you start with a 2-inch cutter then work with a 3-inch cutter, until you finally work your way up to a 6-inch cutter.

Seepage Tile Interior and Exterior Installation:
Seepage tile failure is another form of flooding for basements. If water comes through the cracks of the floor or foundation that is a sign of seepage and tile failure. The perimeter of the basement is to be cut and hauled away 16 inches from the wall, dug down 18 inches where perforated tile will be laid to a new sump pump pit. This will allow the storm water to be quickly pumped out of your home.

Sump Pump and Ejector Pump Installation
Sump Pumps are storm water discharges for residential homes, usually consisting of inch and half and inch and a quarter piping. The sump pumps of this size don’t have a propeller on the bottom of the pump. This means that it is for storm water only… an ejector pump is 2 inches and up. It has a grinding propeller on the bottom for grinding human waste and debris such as toilet paper.
Sump and Ejector Pump Cleaning:
This is the basic cleaning of your residential pump pits. It is a necessity as some pits allow dirt and gravel to build up; this is usually caused by old deteriorating pits or improperly installed pits.
