Types of Clogged Drains We Repair

Garbage disposals can get clogged when you put too much food waste or the wrong kind down the disposal. We also clean out sink pipe clogs and clear dishwashers that drain slowly or back up.

We’ll clear out a toilet that won’t flush or showers that are clogged up and won’t drain with our sewer line cleaning services. We can also handle sink drains that leave standing water in the bowl.

Sometimes water won’t drain out of the washing machine and we can find the problem and fix it fast.

Main sewer line clogs can happen due to a variety of reasons such as roots, broken lines due to age, and putting paper towels, feminine products or other non-flushable items in the line. We are prepared to diagnose and tackle any clogged sewer lines.

Area drains are common in San Diego to help divert storm and rain waters from overflowing and flooding yards and homes. Area drains can become clogged easily during dry weather as they do not get much use. Debris, dirt, leaves, and rocks can obstruct area drain lines, but homeowners may not discover the blockage until it’s too late. The best maintenance for area drains is an annual cleaning before the rainy season and a camera inspection to view the condition of the line.

Over time, various substances like hair, fats, soap scum, oils, and grease can accumulate in your drains, leading to slow drainage and potential blockages. Drain cleaning helps maintain a healthy plumbing system by removing these accumulations, preventing clogs, and ensuring smooth water flow.

Sewer cleaning is a specialized service focused on clearing blockages within the main sewer line.

If bad smells persist, water drains slowly, or standing water is a headache, it's time to call Bill Howe – our experienced plumbers can efficiently tackle the issues, prevent future problems, and leave your plumbing fresh and trouble-free.

The cost of drain cleaning varies based on the job, but at Bill Howe, we offer competitive upfront prices, special offers, and discounts for Military and Seniors. For hassle-free service, give us a call, and let our experts take care of it.

While store-bought drain cleaners may provide a temporary fix by opening up the drain, they often don't address the underlying problem and may create only a small opening in the clog, allowing it to return. Repeated use of these products can lead to pipe corrosion, resulting in costly repairs. Additionally, some drain cleaners can be environmentally harmful. We generally advise against relying on them for a long-term solution.

For effective drain clearing, hiring professionals like Bill Howe is the key. Using top-notch methods, such as camera inspections, our skilled plumbers identify the root of the problem. If there are no repair issues, we employ drain snakes or hydro-jetting machines to ensure your drains are free-flowing and odor-free. Our team can trace and resolve clogs originating from various parts of your home's pipe system, preventing future issues and ensuring optimal drainage.

While we’re happy to come to the rescue when you have a clogged drain, we know it’s an unpleasant expense. It can create delays in your schedule and make a mess in your home. We want to help you avoid these issues and prevent clogs from happening in the first place.

To avoid drain clogging:

  • Avoid pouring grease down the drain.
  • Scrape food into the trash before washing dishes.
  • Minimize soap usage.
  • Run warm water after use.
  • Use a hair strainer in the shower drain.
  • Flush only designated toilet paper.
  • Be aware of tree root intrusion.
  • Schedule regular drain cleaning services.
