Drain & Sewer Rodding

The most common reason for the need to rod the main drain from your home or business to the public main is tree root infiltration. We do not quote or provide a flat rate cost for this work because doing this work effectively and efficiently prohibits it. 

While a complete stoppage occurrence can be opened & plumbing use restored, future blockages can soon re-occur if all blockages are not cleared to the inside diameter of the line. To help assure this - we use the best equipment available to the industry including an expanding cutter head that clears the line in this way. Effectively cleaning the sewer can prevent the need to repair or replace the line, something often urged by many sewer rodding services. For sewer drain work we use the following equipment: 

  • Coleman K1500 rodding machine
  • Coleman rods and rod heads
  • Coleman See-Snake video camera & recorder
  • Electronic locating equipment

When needed the video camera is used to determine the condition or causes of line problems. Our electronic locating equipment allows us to pinpoint where problems exist should digging to repair become necessary. 

We also rod smaller drains inside your home with equivalent machines: Coleman rodding machine, cable, heads and imaging equipment. 

Please call us before replacing your sewer, when possible we clean rather than repair, or repair rather than replace. This approach can save thousands of dollars when addressing back up problems.
