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 grease build up. 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.

Exterior Rodding Cleanout

This should be every homeowner’s first investment if the home hasn’t recently had an exterior rodding cleanout. An outside access area allows you to rod your sewer with better efficiency than from the inside. Interior access is typically a 4” opening while exterior access is 6”. With the larger access space, this allows our plumbing professionals to perform exterior rodding cleanout services with the maximum 6” cutters to thoroughly clear the full circumference of the sewer pipe.

Exterior Jetting Cleanout:

This is exercised when our technician or plumber determines that the sewer is extremely blocked; usually from a slugged up soft blockage or heavy grease build up, so thick that it won’t 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.

Sump Pump and Ejector Pump Installation

Sump Pumps are stormwater discharges for residential homes, usually consisting of inch and a half & inch and a quarter piping. Sump pumps of this size don’t have a propeller on the bottom of the pump. This means that sump pumps are for stormwater 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 Pump and Ejector Pump Cleaning

This is the basic cleaning of your residential pump pits. It is a necessity as dirt and gravel build up over time in most pits; this is usually caused by old deteriorating pits or improperly installed pits. We recommend homeowners change out their sump pumps and ejector pumps every 5 to 7 years. This should be in the household budget. No plumber can predict when a pump will stop working.
