Drain Cleaning Services
A blocked drain can create a foul odor, a slow draining of water from a basin or tub, or wastewater from a toilet or dishwasher backing up into a room. Pouring a liquid drain cleaner down your sink, tub, or toilet in an attempt to eliminate the problem can lead to further problems, as these chemicals are extremely corrosive to older copper or iron pipes, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe, and galvanized steel pipes. For these reasons, at Marvel Sewer and Drain, we purposefully avoid using these toxic chemicals for better, more efficient solutions.
As an alternative, our team at Marvel Sewer and Drain recommend calling us for an inspection. We can solve blocked drain symptoms quickly and efficiently. Our dedicated and experienced team is available in the Plymouth, Minnesota area. At Marvel Sewer and Drain, we have a number of blocked drain solutions. Our experienced and dedicated technician can consult with you, inspect your pipeline, and determine the most cost-effective manner of relieving your concerns.
Kitchen and bathroom sinks have a P-trap in the pipeline below the basin. The P-trap is a u-shaped bend in the pipe that can be opened and inspected. Often the clog is conveniently trapped in this location. Once inspected, our technician will ensure that the P-trap is replaced and sealed properly. Bathroom tubs have a similar small P-trap just under the drain grate. We can also inspect this trap to be sure it clear of hair and soapy clogs.
For blockages or breaks found further down the pipeline through our inspections, we use an industry standard Ridgid brand waterproof camera attached to a fiber optic cable. This camera can be fed into the pipeline from the open P-trap or from the sewer pipeline access point outside the building.
If a clog or corroded pipe is discovered during our camera inspection, hydro jetting can be employed to eliminate the clog. This process consists of a high-pressure hose attached to a water jetting head. The forceful water cleans the inside surface of the pipeline, removing corrosion and the accumulation of waste and debris along the walls as well. Corrosion can slow the water flow through the pipe and also allows future clogs a place to get snagged and begin accumulating again. This process not only completely cleans the pipe, but it renews its diameter to its original measurements and maximizes efficient water flow, making hydro jetting among one of our most effective and popular solutions.
Once the hydro jetting session is completed, the camera is redeployed to confirm the clearing of the clog and to check for uncovered cracks. If the pipe is clean and clear after the hydro-jet process, the repair may be complete.
All of our solutions at Marvel Sewer and Drain for clogged or broken pipe are trenchless, guaranteeing that there is no need to dig up or remove any portion of the current pipeline. Instead, the pipe interior is scrubbed cleaned and perhaps coated with a smooth, solid, impenetrable lining that will support faster water flow.
