Drain Cleaning Bountiful Utah
Bountiful has a wide variety of home types which will require different solutions when it comes to drain repair and cleaning. Some homes in our city were built before the turn of the century and others are brand new. Regardless the age of your home Humphrey Plumbing Heating and Air has you covered when it comes to drain cleaning in Bountiful Utah.
All homes have a drainage system that runs from sinks, bath tubs, toilets, and floor drains to the main sewer line. Sometimes these drains get clogged and will require cleaning. Years of buildup will cause sludge to accumulate in the pipe. The following is a step by step guide to our drain cleaning process:
Step 1. Open an access point.
This might be in a clean out or in a floor drain. In some situations a P-trap will need to be removed to access the drain. Care must be taken when removing these items so that other parts of the drainage system are not damaged.
Step 2. Cleaning the drain.
This can be done with our power cable machine or our Spartan jetter. The jetter flushes the drain line with high pressure water and a special head. This process scours the inside of the drain line as the jetter line is pushed back and forth in the pipe. When complete this cleaning method makes the inside of the pipe almost as good as new. Humphrey Plumbing Heating and Air offers a 90 day warranty on this drain cleaning service.
Step 3. Camera inspection.
This may or may not be needed but if it is we use a state of the art high definition camera to determine the state of your drain line. We can show you the state of your drain lines on a screen so you can make an informed decision should further repair be needed.
Step 4. Closing the access point.
This may require building a new P-trap or replacing the clean out cap. In some situations the floor drain cover may need to be replaced. Our plumber carries thousands of parts on his truck and in most instances he will have what he needs readily available.
Step 5. Inspection and testing.
Water will be ran through your drain to ensure it is draining properly. Joints and unions will be inspected to make sure they aren’t leaking.
Main sewer lines might require a different approach. In Bountiful we have clay, asbestos, concrete, and even orange burg types of sewer lines. Since we are based in Davis County we are familiar with the types of main and secondary drain lines in our area. The best way to prevent plumbing problems is to have regular maintenance.
