Blocked drains are one of the most common problems homeowners face. Some can be solved with DIY plumbing, but there are other instances where you need a professional that offers drain rooter services. We want to clear up everything you need to know about these types of services.

What are drain rooter services?

The name comes from the original problem homeowners were facing with tree roots causing clogs in underground sewer lines. In the present, the goal is to remove the tree roots, debris, and other material causing clogs in the sewer or drainage pipes. Plumbers typically use drain snakes along with root-killing chemicals and hydro-jetting depending on the severity of the clog or sewage backup.

When does someone need drain rooter services?

You need drain rooter services when there is a large clog blocking your home’s sewer line. These should be addressed as soon as possible because they can cause widespread drainage issues in and around your home. In severe instances, there is the risk of wastewater backing up into your home which introduces a plethora of health risks and rising repair and restoration costs.

How do drain rooter services work?

There are different tools for different cases. A manual rooter that’s operated with a hand crank is used for the common drain clogs. An augmented rooter specific for toilet blockages comes with a hook shape to better maneuver the toilet drains.

Some are electric, with video cameras for inspection, and many other tools depending on the job.
