No matter the obstruction, we’ll figure out a solution. The process may vary based on the issue at hand.

In the case of a kitchen sink, for example, the problem is often caused by food debris stuck just below the drain opening in the sink. In that case, a licensed ABC plumber will simply disassemble the pipe immediately below the sink and remove the item, then re-configure the pipe.

Other times, something may make it further into the drain system. (Even roots from a tree can grow into the pipe and obstruct it!) In these cases, we may recommend a plumber’s snake to be used to push or grind through the obstruction.

Drains can get narrower over time. The constant flow of grease, soap, hair, food debris and other elements can build up along the walls of pipes and narrow the ability to properly conduct wastewater. Sinks or tubs may become slow to drain, and even bad smells can draw attention to a larger problem. Unfortunately, the narrowing won’t go away on its own. That’s when a homeowner needs the services of a professional drain cleaner.

Of course, there are also random clogs that can occur – a piece of food debris or a toddler’s favorite ball can make it surprisingly far down a drain pipe. Whatever the issue, our experienced plumbers are here to tackle it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some symptoms of a drain issue?

Water draining slowly from sinks, tubs or showers is a primary clue. For the most part, water should leave all of these receptacles pretty quickly, but when there’s standing water while showering or water staying in the sink for an extended period of time, that often indicates a problem. A foul odor is another symptom to keep an eye out for.

Is any drain susceptible?

Kitchen drains, bathroom sinks, shower and tub drains, toilets and floor drains can all have similar issues with variable causes. For example, a lot of hair can accumulate in shower and tub drains, while kitchen sink drain clogs are typically related to food items or grease and soap residue. Of course, there is also the situation when a valuable piece of jewelry makes its way down a sink or the odd toy that ends up in a toilet. All these items are obstructions to water flow and all can be removed.

How much does it cost to clean a drain?

Plumbing details can vary from home to home. However, ABC does offer a $99 drain cleaning on an ongoing basis. The price covers a clog being removed from one drain in the home, which has relatively easy access to a cleanout or pulled P-trap under the sink. Multiple clogs will be estimated by the Drain Specialist at the time of service with a combined price presented to the customer before work is performed. Additional discounts from coupons or AMP maintenance agreements are NOT applicable.

What is a hydro-jetter?

Sewer jetters, also known as hydro-jetters, are powerful drain cleaning machines that use high-pressure water jets to clear obstructions in residential and commercial drain pipes. The hydrojet is essentially a powerful nozzle pushing out large amounts of water at very high pressure. The amount of pressure can be in the neighborhood of 35,000 psi!

The nozzle is pushed through the pipes, and the powerful stream of water scours the inside of the pipe to remove any build up of grease, soap, oil, food debris or other materials obstructing the pipe and reducing the flow of water from the house. The pipes are essentially retuned to near new capacity. ABC’s licensed plumbers and drain cleaners are equipped with hydro-jetters and can quickly perform this service.

What can I do to help prevent a clogged drain?

As you might expect, prevention begins with being careful about what goes into your drain.

A few quick tips to avoid drain obstructions:

  • Pour bacon drippings and cooking grease into an empty milk container or coffee can and discard them in the trash after cooling instead of putting these liquids down the drain.
  • Compost your used coffee grounds.
  • Add filters or screens to your kitchen and bathtub sinks to keep hair and soap scum from getting into your pipes.
  • Periodically, pour a cup of white vinegar down your drain. Wait for half an hour and then run very hot water to remove any buildup that you might have in your plumbing system.

“We've had nothing but good experiences with ABC. We use them for pest control and termite monitoring. Their techs have always been knowledgeable and professional. More specifically Mike Mathews has always be cordial and patient. Taking care to make ensure all of our questions or concerns are addressed. I'm sure their prices are competitive but giving 4 stars because some services can be a bit pricey.”
