Drain Cleaning in Corpus Christi, TX

Properly functioning drains are key to keeping your home's plumbing system in good shape. ABC Home & Commercial Services is here to help you keep your drains functioning properly and efficiently with our drain cleaning service. Whether you have a serious clog or need more routine drain cleaning, Corpus Christi homeowners know that ABC has the most experienced technicians using the latest in plumbing technology to get the job done right the first time!

Depending on the problem you are experiencing, we’ve got more than one solution.

In the case of a kitchen sink, if the issue is simply food below just below the drain opening, a licensed ABC plumber will simply disassemble the pipe immediately below the sink and remove the item. Once the blockage is removed, the pipe can be re-configured.

Other times, something may make it further into the drain system. In the more extreme cases, roots from a tree can grow into a pipe and create an obstruction. In these cases, we may recommend a plumber’s “snake” to be used to push or grind the obstruction.

Drains narrow over time. The constant flow of grease, soap, hair, food debris and more can build up along the walls of pipes and compromise their ability to conduct wastewater. Sinks or tubs start to drain slowly, and bad odors may develop. The narrowing won’t go away on its own, unfortunately, and that’s when a homeowner needs the services of a professional drain cleaner.

No matter whether you are a new homeowner or have lived in your home for decades, you can also be a victim of a clogged drain, whether it’s from a piece of food, a child’s favorite ball or another foreign object.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the primary symptoms of a drain issue?

If you have a blockage, water will generally start to drain slowly from sinks, tubs or showers. If you notice standing water while showering or water remaining in the sink for an extended period of time, that could also indicate a problem. Foul smells are sometimes reported as well.

Are all drains at risk?

Any drain can have an issue in your home—kitchen drains, bathroom sinks, shower and tub drains, toilets and even floor drains. The cause of the problem may vary. For example, shower and tub drains often collect a lot of hair in them, while kitchen sink drains tend to have problems with food items or grease and soap residue. All are obstructions to water flow, and all can be removed.

How much does drain cleaning cost?

While circumstances can vary from home to home, ABC offers a $99 drain cleaning for more typical, common drain problems. That price covers a clog being removed from one drain in your home. Multiple clogs are priced at $99 each.

I've heard the term hydro-jetter. Tell me more about it.

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 which pushes out large amounts of water at very high pressure. The amount of pressure is generally around 35,000 psi.

The nozzle is pushed through the pipes, and the powerful stream of water scours the inside of the pipe and removes build-up of any grease, soap, oil, food debris and other materials which may be obstructing the pipe and reducing the flow of water from the house. The pipes are essentially returned to near new capacity after this device is used. ABC’s licensed plumbers and drain cleaners are equipped with hydro-jetters and can quickly perform this service at your home.

Is there anything I can do to prevent clogged drains in the first place?

Absolutely! As you might imagine, the best way to avoid clogged drains is by being watchful about what goes down the drain.

A few other tactics to avoid drain problems include:

  • Dispose of bacon drippings and other types of cooking grease by placing them in empty milk cartons or coffee cans and letting these liquids cool before placing them in your trash instead of pouring them down the drain.
  • Instead of putting coffee grounds or eggshells down your drains, put these materials into a compost.
  • Prevent hair and pieces of soap from entering your pipes by purchasing and installing filters or screens in your tubs and sinks.
  • On a regular basis, pour white vinegar down your drains and let them sit for half an hour. After that time, run very hot water down the pipes to remove any stubborn obstructions.

“Had to have my homes sewer drain pipe replaced under my slab foundation. We had multiple estimates from various plumbers and ultimately chose ABC due to Justin's fair price, professionalism, confidence and ability to reassure us, as first time home owners, that our house would be perfectly fine during and after the job. After the large 25 foot long tunnel was made under our house, Justin quickly removed the old cast iron pipes and replaced them with the updated PVC, while also adding an extra access near the home. It has now been a year since the work was done, and we have not had an issue since! We have a 2 bed, 1 bath home, and have had up to 5 people staying in the house at times, and no problems! Cannot recommend ABC enough! Make sure to ask for Justin! Realizing now that I do not have pictures of the updated pipe under the house.”

“Totally impressed with the quick response from ABC to inspect and give me an estimate on a leaking water heater. Justin was totally professional and more than willing to answer any and all questions I had. 2 days later ( at my request was willing and able to change out next day) Justin showed up on time and had the entire job done, cleaned up, tested and ready to go in less than 2 hrs. Very impressed all the way around. Will be using ABC for the multitude of services they provide (had no idea until now everything they do) in the future. Good to know customer service is still alive and well.”
