The fall and winter months can be hard on your drain system, with debris like dirt and leaves potentially building up and clogging your drain. It is important to plan for maintaining your drain tiles by properly cleaning them every 12 to 18 months. Doing this can lead to significant cost savings down the road, as your plumbing equals an average of 15% of the value of your home. So… your drainage system should be one of the first priorities!

Here are 3 drain cleaning facts that will set you up for success:

  1. Start with a drain camera inspection. Inspecting your sewer and drainage system allows us to see the state of the drain tile and extends the life of your system. It also saves you money by discovering potential problems and fixing them before they occur.
  2. Have your drains cleaned with a Hydro Flushing machine. If the camera inspection shows that your pipes are not fully blocked, a Hydro Flushing machine will be used to restore the drain line back to full health.
  3. Use a power auger or cable machine if drains are clogged. If the camera inspection determines that your pipes are blocked, a power auger or cable machine will be used first (i.e. snaking a clogged drain), followed by the Hydro Flushing machine.
