Frequently Asked Questions
Why did my sink/tub/drain back up?While it is rare to see two drains exactly alike, there are many common denominators. A lot of times it is just the age of the pipe and many years of use. Many times, especially in older homes, the drain pipes from individual fixtures are made of steel, which although it may still look nice and smooth on the outside, it is really all rusted and pitted inside which tends to catch and grab anything travelling through, especially at a turn or joint. So over many years of use “stuff” tends to build up until it eventually forms a clog. So too can hair clog a drain, more quickly even if a protective screen isn’t used over the drain. And, of course, we always have the kitchen garbage disposal that has been overworked. In short, like anything else, drains sometimes need a little “maintenance” to put them back into tip top order.
Do you have cameras that can show me why my drain was clogged?This is a great question because if you think about it, what would you see through dirty, yucky water? Our competitors love to advertise that they will solve your drain problem by using a camera to pinpoint the problem and then fix it, when in reality the opposite order has to take place. We’ll unclog your pipe first and then if it’s necessary we can investigate the integrity of your pipe with camera equipment. We have the latest in diagnostic equipment and you are welcome to watch it right on the monitor along with us.
How much do you charge to unclog a drain?We have a set flat rate pricing schedule that we will freely discuss up front with you on the phone before you set an appointment. We are not going to tell you that we have to come look at it first and then try to sell you something you don’t want or need. Most clogged drains are pretty routine to us and if after we arrive at your home if we see something out of the ordinary we will point it out and discuss it with you. Our rates are based on the size of the pipe, the type of equipment needed to do the job, and are competitive.
