Drain Clogs | Plumbers Katy

Stubborn, recurring drain clogs are likely to indicate a deeper issue that simple plunging will not resolve. When clogs are an ongoing problem, you need professional-grade, drain cleaning to resolve the issue.

With modern hydro-jetting, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg plumbers in Katy can clean and restore drains and sewer pipes, removing even the most stubborn clog effectively.

Hydro-jetting is effective for almost any clogged materials, and is the most reliable and effective technique for professional removal of:

  • Long-term fat, grease and oil buildup 
  • Frequent clogging due to hair, toothpaste, soap and other debris
  • Severe clogging of food products
  • Tree roots

In the following, we look into the ways hydro-jetting can benefit your drains and sewer pipe, while providing the most effective solution for home, commercial and municipal drain cleaning.

Professional Treatment

In many cases of severe pipe clogging, DIY cleaning approaches, or even traditional plumbing tools, such as drain augers simply just will not provide effective treatment. Severely clogged drains and sewer pipes demand professional treatment.

Hydro-jetting, is effective for severely clogged drains and sewer pipes. The process is essentially power-washing for clogged pipes. Utilizing highly pressurized water, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg plumbers in Katy can use hydro-jetting to remove stubborn clogs with ease, safely cleaning the pipe to its walls. Furthermore, the process is environmentally friendly, as it uses only water and is entirely chemical free.

In commercial drain and sewer cleaning applications, hydro-jetting has become the standard in routine plumbing maintenance, particularly for the food and beverage industries with heavy deposits of grease and food in drains. In fact, hydro-jetting is the only effective treatment for fully removing grease, fats, and oils from drains and sewer pipe. Hydro-jetting provides drains and sewer lines that drain efficiently and effectively, and that remain cleaner longer. Drain snaking helps remove large clogs within pipes, but does little to clear residual materials from pipe walls, resulting in a drain that is soon clogged again. Hydro- jetting, on the other hand, removes clogs, blockages, and residual material in a single application.

Hydro-Jetting’s Role in Pipe Maintenance and Repair

In almost any situation where repair and pipe bursting are involved, hydro-jetting services provide the essential first step. Allowing developing clogs to continue can result in all out pipe failure, with burst pipes and back-up occurring. Being pro-active and treating clogs before they reach this point is the best approach in the end. 

Video Pipe Inspection

video pipe inspection is performed with a small waterproof, high-resolution camera attached to a flexible fiber optic cable. The camera reveals a full image of the clog, and enables the plumber to determine the pipe condition from inside the pipe. From the information gathered and images viewed, our plumbers in Katy will be able to determine the most effective solution. Some common causes of drain and/or sewer issues the video pipe inspection may reveal are:  

• Tree roots

• Cracked and broken pipe

• Offset pipe

• Pipe corrosion and deterioration

• Blockage

• Bellied pipe
