There are times when the sewer pipe that drains from the house to the main sewer line can become clogged and the waste water will not be able to flow out of the system properly. Often, these clogs are caused by objects like a childâ€™s toy or a sock that was forced down the drain. Other times, the clogs are caused by the tree roots that have infiltrated the pipes. Water vapor from the pipes attracts tree roots which travel long distances seeking moisture. Before you know it,Â they’veÂ taken over you sewer pipe, causing a major clog that only a professional plumber can fix. If your drainage system slows down or if you hear a gurgling noise coming from the toilet, thereâ€™s a good chanceÂ you’veÂ got a serious clog.
In many cases our plumbers still use the traditional drain snake to clear pipes and sewer blockages out of underground pipes. A snake is a long, thin steel band with a heavy point on one end. It is very flexible and can be worked around bends until it comes in contact with an object that caused the clog. You can either push the object through the pipe or break it in pieces which can be carried out by the water.
When faced with more severe sewer pipes clogs, Ben Franklinâ€™s plumbers realize that a drain snake may not always do the trick. In these situations we use the strong blast of a high-pressure water jet system. High pressure water jet systems work great when you have built up layers of grease or large amounts of residue.
Whether you need your sewer pipes repaired, replaced or just unclogged, the professional plumbers at Benjamin Franklin in Tampa are waiting for your call!
