The garbage disposal is not your friend unless your friends come over and purposely cause your kitchen sink to back up by forcing food into the drain. You should also never pour any type of grease or oils into your drain. Over time they will cause heavy blockages which may require heavy-duty equipment to unstop the drain. So what happens if you do have a backup? Well, let's start off with stay away from those draining opening products. Most will contain some type of acid which will cause more damage than good. The best thing to do is call in a licensed plumber. A plumber will have the proper tools and knowledge to get the drain open and running in no time. The most common way to clear this type of stoppage would be a sewer snake machine. A cable machine is basically a wire that is able to be pushed down the drain from an opening and scrape the blockage or build up from the pipe walls.

LOCATION: Boca Raton FL, 33431 (Hydro Jetting) CAUSE OF PROBLEM: Repeat Sewer Back Ups. RESOLUTION: There are many ways to go about maintaining your drain system. The original sewer cleaning machine was invented in 1933 by Samuel Blanc. Since then so much has changed and the plumbing industry has many technical upgrades in systems and equipment used to maintain them. one of the most popular methods of drain cleaning is called Hydro Jetting. Hydro jetting is a machine that is used to pressure clean the interior walls of pipe systems. There is no better way to clean grease or a soft blockage in a sewer. The equipment is capable of delivering 4000 psi at 18 gallons a minute. There are even hydro jetters used by municipalities that are larger and more power to maintain the larger city sewers. The sewer cable machine is still used to this day, however, it has its drawbacks. A cable machine can only reach so far where a Hydro Jetter can max out 500 plus feet. The hydrojetter can self propel itself down a sewer pipe. Which means less stress to a plumbers body. The way the machine works is that it has a motor and a pump. Which cause pressure to build up and send water into a high pressured hose. From the hose, it will travel to what is known as the head. The jet head has holes allowing a 360-degree cleaning of the pipe. To find out more information you can visit our main website at www.Rhino-Rooter.com and learn more.
