I had a major main drain clog at one of my rental properties. It wasn’t a pretty sight to see the toilet paper and you can imagine what else, oozing from the main drain. My first attempt to get relief was to try one of the discount plumbers I found online. The plumber came out and reminded me of a used car salesman. He did snake the drain and put down a camera. Then came the sales pitch. He said my drain was broken and I needed a hydro jet cleaning. The regular price he said was $1800 but he could pretend I was a regular customer and only charge me $1300! Well a week later the drain was clogged again. This time I phoned a professional, I called Express Plumbing and Rooter. Their price for their High Tech Water Jetting was only $500. The same day they sent out Harry and Steve who arrived on time, in uniform, were very professional, clean and efficient. 

 

As they looked at the property Harry let me know that the clean out pipe was actually too far away from the street, and was only three inches when the cleanup should be four inches. In addition, it should be on the side of the house closest to the street instead of where it was, farthest away from the street.  He let me know that it would be better to get a new clean out that is four inches and put closest to the street sometime in the future so that cleaning in the future would be far more effective. No hard sell here, just information that I had never been given in the 20+ years I have owned the property.

The plumbers from Express Plumbing and Rooter had brought with them a large, trailer High Tech Water Jetting machine. It uses a large tank of water forced by pressure at approx. 4,000 PSI supplied by a large diesel engine to blast that water at very high pressure through the drain to break up any drain clogs, dirt, roots or anything else that may be causing the drain to stop or be slow.

 

Stephen then unraveled a long length of the hose connected to the High Tech Water Jetting machine to have enough  to feed into the pipe. He then placed the business end of the hose into the main drain and had Harry turn on the engine. The hose is engineered so that the high pressure cleans what is ahead of it and self propels itself into the pipe. There was an initial backwash but almost immediately, the clog was removed and the hose was continued to be fed deeper into the pipe. The goal is to get the hose close to but not into the city sewer system.

 

After the proper amount of hose was fed into the pipe and removed, it was time to use a camera to see what was done and what was needed. The camera rig is simply a camera with a light on the end of a snake with a monitor. Also part of the rig is an ultrasound device that lets the operator know where the camera is to trace where there may be problems. Using the camera and the ultra sound, a section of the pipe was found that may cause problems in the future. The location was found where a hole would need to be dug if we were going to go to the best fix. That fix would be to do a trenchless sewer pipe  replacement. If I get that done, I will let you know all the details.
