Clogged Drains

No More Clogged Drains A sewer drain clog can be considered a very serious problem or even a plumbing emergency. Because the water cannot go any further, it comes right back and can ruin your home. The toilet is particularly affected by this, but other fixtures from your house can also be involved. Your tub, shower, sink and even the washing machine can all be affected by clogged drains. Every single plumbing system can develop clogs. In fact, it’s simply impossible to avoid getting clogged drains. The good news is that A-1 Plumbers are here for you. We are a professional ‘plumbing repair’ company in Virginia Beach offering top-quality traditional rooter services specially designed to clear up any clogged drains.

What is a Rooter?

A rooter is an advanced mechanism consisting of a high-tension spring and a spool of cabling. At the far end of the cabling, a series of sharp blades are attached. As the cable goes through your water piping, the blades spin, scraping the walls of the plumbing lines and removing any debris responsible for the clogging. As the rooter is removed, water is flushed through the pipe to remove the remaining debris and mold, flushing them out right into the city system.

A rooter is an extremely cost-effective, quick and easy way to remove drain clogs. However, if the clogs appear due to grease build up, this device might be quite ineffective. Typically, clogs show up due to grease build up in commercial drains, at restaurants, in huge buildings or typical kitchens where stay-home moms cook on a daily basis. In these cases, a rooter is not the best solution for long-term clog removal. In case you are dealing with grease build up or other similar substances, check our professional Hydro Water Jetting Services.

Sometimes, an expanded, cracked or broken pipe looks like a clogging problem. However, some clogs that appear regularly even if they were being taken care of need more advanced solutions. In this case, A-1 Plumbers strongly recommends a fiber optic camera inspection. Whether you are a homeowner, small business person, or manager of a restaurant, dealing with clogged drains is not usually easy or simple to fix.
