Is your kitchen sink backing up? Does it slowly drain leaving behind grease and grim? There may be a larger underlying problem that should be addressed! There are many reasons a kitchen sink drain may clog. The largest reason for kitchen sink back up tends to be food down the garbage disposal. 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. There is also hydro jetting which you can read more about on our website www.Rhino-Rooter.com or go back to our main blog page.

We have all done it. This local Boca Raton restaurant poured the grease down the drain.  If you are one of these folks that thinks it's ok to pour grease down the drain, get familiar with hydro jetting. When grease is poured down a drain, at first everything seems normal. However, inside your pipes lies a major problem just waiting to happen. Each time grease is poured down the drain it slowly cools. Causing it to harden inside the pipes. Over time this will build up and create a blockage! Most of the times this is a blockage cannot be cleared with a traditional sewer snake. The best option when done using any grease, fats, or oils would be to place them in a container and throw them into the trash. What is hydro jetting? Hydro jetting is a way of cleaning a sewer pipe using high pressured water. The machine has a long hose with specially designed ends to pressure clean the interior walls of the pipe. This is the safest and best way to clean out a system. The extreme water flow and pressure can clear any clogged line. Jetting is not just limited to grease blockages. It can be used to remove roots, or even descale a cast iron pipe! If you have any questions or are in need of our plumbing services call our office today!

Location Palm City Florida. Problem Flooded loading dock due to failed sump pump. Resolution Rhino Rooter was called out to a building with a flooded loading dock. When onsite there was over 6000 gallons flooding the parking lot. The water was up to 3 feet deep in some areas. The cause of all the was from a heavy storm that had moved in over night. A sump pump is located in one of the storm basin. The sump pump is to transfer water from the parking lot storm system to a retention pond located on the property. All excess water had to be removed in order to gain access to the pump. Rhino Rooter set up a transfer pump and hoses to remove all water from the storm system and transfer it to the pond. The removal of the water took over 5 hours. Finally the plumbers could work safely. Access was gained to the sump pump and it was found that the float switch was not working properly.  The pump was removed for inspection. Minor debris where cleaned from the bottom of the pump. when every thing was reconnected for testing it was found that the sump still was not working. The pump was removed again and the check valve for the pump was found to be stuck and not opening. The check valve was removed and cleaned. The system was re-installed and tested. All components where working properly at this point. At Rhino Rooter we are not just drain cleaners we can handle all your plumbing needs.

Location: Condo building in Hollywood FL, 33021. Problem: Broken sewer stack pipe in wall and ceiling causing smells and a leak. Resolution:  Rhino Rooter received a call to a condo building where there was a bad sewer smell emitting from a few units. There was also evidence of water staining on a bathroom ceiling of a vacant unit. When the plumbers were onsite to investigate the unpleasant aroma, they went from unit to unit to insure that nothing was being over looked and that is when the water staining was found. The ceiling was full of moisture and appeared to have been leaking for sometime. A hole was cut in the ceiling and wall to find a broken sewer stack that was cracked between floors. The plumbers had to remove some fixtures to access the sewer stack via the wall. Every time a sink or shower was being used from the floors above, sewer water would leak from the cracked stack into the wall and onto the ceiling. The section of damaged pipe was cast iron which had become brittle and split on the vertical section which is common as the cast iron pipe life expectancy is only about 40-45 years before problems will occur. Acid based drain opening chemicals sold in home improvement stores will shorten the life of cast iron and may even cause premature rotting of the metal pipe. The cast iron cracked stack was cut out and removed. A new section of cast iron was installed to meet the Florida Plumbing Code. The new cast iron pipe was able to be connected to the existing section and fixtures. The system was tested and all leaks and odors where gone. If you are showing signs of moisture on walls, ceiling, or cabinets you may have a leak, which if not treated and repaired quickly may develop mold which is very dangerous to your health and maybe come very costly to remove. If your suspicious of a...

Resolution: When a large commercial facility found that there was low to no water pressure they contacted the city for answers to their issue. The city workers explained that they had a broken water main that was cause the problem and the pipe needed to be repaired.

That is when they went on the search for an emergency plumber. Luckily, they choose to call Rhino Rooter to assist in the emergency of having no water, the team was able to work on the situation and have the problem resolved the same day. The cause of the problem was found to be the previous repair done by the other plumbers did not meet code requirements and failed due to improper installation.
