Frequently asked questions:

What is the difference between drain opening and drain cleaning?  

    Some companies use phrases that can be misleading like drain opening. A drain opening simply pokes a hole through the clog with a bare cable. A drain cleaning is done with a bladed cable to scrape the walls of the pipe. 

What causes my kitchen and bathroom drains to clog?

     Soap is made from grease and it turns back into grease and builds up along the walls of the pipe.

What causes my floor drain to back up?

     Sometimes the drain lines are partially blocked to the point that they can't keep up with the laundry discharge water. It can also back up if your main sewer line is clogged.

What causes my main sewer to clog?

      Main sewers can clog for a variety of reasons. Most common is tree roots growing into the pipe. 

How do tree roots get into the pipe?

        Some older homes have clay tile sewer pipe that has a collar every 4 feet. With tree growth in the spring and fall, the roots find their way through those openings for water.

The good news is, at Discount Sewer and Drain, we can handle all of these issues.
