Root-A Way Plumbing Drain and Sewer Cleaning
I found Root-a-way in the coupon section of the yellowpages book. They have a 1 year guarantee on lines they clean AND they actually honor it. Their crew was out to clean out my basement drain and the line from the house to the street. About 2 months later, I noticed the shower was draining slowly again. Root-a-way came right back out & ran the snake through the drains again. No issues since!

Daniel of PS Rapp Plumbers was prompt and courteous. He arrived on time and after diagnosing the problem, quickly snaked the drain, cleaned up and left the area clean.
Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ΒΌ-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
