Drain snaking refers to using a stiff, steel cable that is rotated at a high rpm to clear a drain clog. Sewer snakes may seem simple, but they require a very experienced technician to clean the drain properly and to avoid serious injury. It is recommended to never use chemicals down your drains, unless they are biological enzymes added to digest waste and grease.
Code Red Emergency Plumbing hires and trains very experienced drain professionals to clear your drains, 24/7, using the strongest and best equipment available.
Sewer jetting is the process of using high pressure water to clean drains and sewer pipes. Water is pressurized to between 2,000 and 4,500 psi utilizing a high power motor and pump, typically transported on a trailer. The high pressure, high volume water is used to clear the toughest clogs and to prepare pipes for camera inspection. Code Red Emergency Plumbing has a high pressure jetter ready to clear your drains, at any time.
Camera inspection of the sewer line is needed when there is a reoccurring problem, a breakage is suspected, or there are possible roots in the line. A stiff, fiberoptic cable with an attached camera head is pushed through the sewer line and monitored with a portable monitor by the technician. This camera clearly shows any damage in the pipe and also transmits a signal that allows the pipe to be accurately located with an electronic locating wand. After the problem is found, it is then marked, so that location can be excavated to repair the pipe.
