Need a New Year’s Resolution? How About Having Clean Drains?

What better way to start the New Year than with clean drains! Okay…maybe you can think of a few better ways to start off the New Year, but as your plumber, we want to make sure you know about your drain cleaning options. Preventative drain maintenance is a great way to save money and reduce stress. When you schedule a routine drain cleaning, you are greatly reducing the chance that you’ll find yourself in a situation of having an emergency drain problem (like when you’re just about the leave for vacation or having guests over for the weekend!). You have several options to ensure that you get that peace of mind:

Snaking

This is a simple, yet effective way to clear your drains. Using a cable, the snaking technique will effectively clear through most two inch and four inch drains to clear the obstructions in your sewer lines. You can also inquire about a whole house drain cleaning package. Packages include snaking of all of your two-inch drains within your home, as well as your four-inch main line.

Hydro-Jetting

Using the high-pressure water system, hydro-jetting is extremely effective in removing debris (including roots and grease) from your drain lines. The results of hydro-jetting last longer and also carry a longer warranty. Using hydro-jetting on your two-inch drain lines, specifically your kitchen drain, is ideal for removing that stubborn grease that builds up in the line over time. Hydro-jetting utilizes specialized nozzles powered by water up to 3,000 PSI to thoroughly clean drain lines. Specialized tools are also used to restore your drain line to its original diameter.

Sewer Camera Inspections

For those stubborn issues that keep happening to your sewer line, you can schedule a sewer camera inspection to find out exactly what is causing the issue and where that issue is. The sewer camera inspection includes a copy of the DVD, so you too can see what the issue is. We also have the technology to pinpoint exactly where the problem is so that you are also provided with an estimate to repair that issue.

Epoxy Sewer Lining

Also known as “drain-lining” this trenchless technology is the most effective way to make sure your sewer lines do not continue to cause you problems. Using the sewer camera, the plumbing technician will first inspect the line to evaluate the drain system, properly diagnose the problem and offer you options for a permanent solution. After using specialized tools to restore the sewer line, a felt liner which is saturated with an epoxy mixture into the exact location needed to make the pipe repair. The liner (or bladder) is inflated, creating a pipe inside of a pipe. Once the epoxy is cured, the bladder is removed and your new pipe is ready to use.

We can also set up a preventative drain maintenance schedule that works for you – call now to set up your maintenance schedule.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
