Professional Drain Cleaning for Los Angeles Homes
It’s never a good sign when the water in your sink, tub, shower, or toilet drains slowly. Often, this results from a clog in your home’s drain system caused by things like grease and soap scum buildup, hair, foreign objects, or even cracked or collapsed sewer pipes. When water begins to drain slower than usual, it is best to get in touch with a knowledgeable plumber to investigate the issue before it worsens. Although there may be specific do-it-yourself devices and chemical drain cleaners readily available to you, it is best to allow a plumber to assess the situation since far greater underlying problems cause many drain clogs.
If you notice any of the following, call Plumb Inc today to schedule your appointment for drain cleaning in Los Angeles:
- Foul odors are rising from toilets or drains.
- Increased rust and dirt in toilets and water tap
- Air bursts or bubbles in water lines
- Slower flushing
- Drain backups that keep coming back
Drain Camera Inspection & Sewer Location in Los Angeles
One of the challenges we face is disproving the preconceived notion that contractors are dishonest. Unfortunately, this misconception is even more common with plumbers as often the problem or lack thereof is below the surface, and you have no way to know the problem. At Plumb Inc, not only are we committed to being honest, we always aim to prove it; this is why we now use state-of-the-art drain camera inspection and sewer location services for our clients.
Call (818)722-8231 today to schedule a sewer camera inspection service in Los Angeles.
Why You Should Invest in a Drain Camera Inspection
We have invested in drain cameras to allow our customers to see the problem themselves; This is part of our commitment to working with the utmost integrity and ensuring you can trust us. Our Los Angeles plumbing experts can use the video inspection to get to the problem’s root rather than searching.
Drain & sewer camera inspections provide the following benefits:
- Determine the exact problem causing the clog
- Allow better view when fixing the issue
- Show the customer what the issue could be
- Determine any possible damage.
High-Pressure Hydro Jetting in Los Angeles
Plumb Inc has a sewer and drain division dedicated to solving the more complicated issues associated with clogged drains and broken sewers; This includes our high-pressure hydro jetting process, which scrubs your pipes’ walls with pressurized water, making them new again. Our plumbing experts understand how this system works and why it’s helpful for you.
How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
Hydro jetting is more effective than “snaking” a drain. By snaking a drain, you are simply making a passageway big enough to restore flow, which can quickly become clogged. Instead, hydro jetting will break up any buildup in your pipes. It removes the buildup from the lines and pushes it to the sewer.
Hydro jetting can remove the following:
- Tree Roots
After our Los Angeles hydro jetting experts jet the drain, we treat it with an enzyme solution. This industrial-strength drain cleaning solution is 100% natural, environmentally safe, and chemical-free. In addition, it contains “friendly bacteria” to consume the grease, fat, oil, and other waste that clogs your drains, preventing future buildups. If you have experienced multiple drain blockages within 12 months, you are more than likely due to jet your drains.
Trenchless Sewer Repair
Plumb Inc Services is a plumbing company with the equipment and the talent to perform trenchless piping services. Trenchless technology allows our plumbers to replace sewer lines without disturbing the surrounding area. As a result, it is convenient in paved streets, parking lots, driveways, and structures that required excavation in the past. Existing pipes that have been compromised through root intrusion, erosion, and cracks can now be restored to new ones without costly and time-consuming excavation. In addition, the cured-in-place technology minimizes the downtime, taking, on average, one day to fully replace a sewer line and restore operation.
We desire to bring the most innovative technologies and solutions to our customers. Therefore, Plumb Inc Services utilizes state-of-the-art equipment, including a liner system, a portable bio-diesel-powered boiler, and two-part epoxy resin. In addition, our powerful jetters effectively remove all roots and debris which build up in the line. The combination of these two processes essentially makes existing pipes like new ones.
Our sewer repair services include pipe bursting- an additional trenchless option for sewer line repairs. Because this technology does not require excavation of the entire sewer line, this service is cost-effective and efficient. In addition, it minimizes the downtime and effects on the surrounding areas’ landscaping and hardscaping.
Pipe bursting is a widely used technology that allows buried pipe replacement without excavating the entire line length. Instead, it is done by excavating two locations and using a machine that pulls a new pipe through an existing pipe of equal or greater diameter. At the same time, the current tube is shattered as the new pipe is pulled through. While the trenchless/CIPP repair option is similar, there are certain conditions where pipe bursting is more immaculate, especially when sewer lines are badly cracked or separated.
Tree Root Intrusion in Sewer Lines
In Southern California’s hot and dry weather, plants do what they can to survive, sometimes at the expense of our sewer lines. Because sewage lines and other pipes are often covered in condensation or other leaking nutrients, tree root shoots will grow toward the nutrients and around the pipes. If there are small hairline openings or cracks in pipes, tree roots may be able to penetrate the lines, causing the tree roots to eradicate them. If your home or business is experiencing frequent drainage backups, tree roots may be the culprit.
Although not all root problems can be identified right away, many of these issues can be avoided before the roots damage pipes severely.
The following conditions should be avoided:
- Pipelines located near curb lines with trees
- Pipes that are built with loose fitting joints or corroded joint sealing materials
- Pipelines that are located next to other pipes that have been destroyed by roots previously
- Pipelines that are located near the surface of the ground or close to trees
If you are dealing with problems involving sewage or other pipes on your property, we encourage you to contact Plumb Inc. For example, you may have an issue with tree roots growing inside your sewer line that can be corrected with either a hydro jetting service or a sewer repair or replacement service.
We’re on call 24/7 to react promptly to your plumbing needs.
