Older homes were built using clay pipe, which was a very brittle and easily broken type of pipe material. Today, homes are built using plastic pipe, either High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) pipe. Plastic pipe is more durable with strength resistant to tree root growth. The loss of friction in the pipe will eliminate most blockages, allowing grease, tree roots and food from clogging the pipe.
To accelerate the pipe cleaning and maintenance process, clean outs are often installed on drain and sewer piping systems. The clean out is an access point for a snake, hydro jet nozzle or video camera to be inserted into the plumbing system. If the system does not have a cleanout already installed, one can be installed quite easily.
Tree Roots in the Sewer System
Most older homes have clay subsurface piping unless upgrades were performed and upgraded pipes were installed. Clay is a brittle material subject to damage quite easily. The clay pipes are vulnerable to tree roots growing in the vicinity of the pipe. The growing roots can break the clay pipe, especially the joints. The liquid in the pipes will keep the root system nourished, and as the roots grow, the pipe flow will diminish. The roots will cause a backup at the beginning of the run or the roots will damage the pipe to the point of developing leaks. A blockage or a leak will compromise the functionality of the system and will need to be addressed.
A method used by Diamond Bar Drain Cleaning to clear pipe blockages, especially tree roots, is the snaking method. The snake has an appropriate size cutting blade on the end, chopping the roots as it travels through the pipe. The roots are cut into small pieces and are flushed through the pipe line to the outlet.
Another method of clearing a blockage in a pipe is by hydro jet. Hydro jetting utilizes a high pressure water spray that blasts through the pipe and literally blows the blockage through the pipe to the outlet. The hydro jet tip is also a cutting blade that cuts the roots as the water moves it along. Hydro jetting is very effective removing blockages that snaking cannot handle.
Hydro jet is effective on drain lines as well as sewer lines and is often used to clean pipe before a pipe liner is inserted. Diamond Bar Drain Cleaning and Diamond Bar Sewer Repair are trained professionals who will address any sewer or drain pipe problem that arises.
Pipe Inspection by Video
Video cameras are often used to inspected subsurface piping systems to check for damage or to locate something blocking the pipe. The video method can accommodate a pipe as small as 1-1/2” diameter to as large as 8” in diameter. The video will provide a close up look at the interior of the pipe, enabling the drain specialist to evaluate a drain line problem.
Sewer Pipe Relining Service
Hydro jettingDiamond Bar Sewer Repair and Drain Cleaning often choose to repair or rehabilitate a pipe by inserting a pipe lining into the pipe. The material is introduced into the pipe, and when the resin is activated, it will take the shape of the pipe. The pipe becomes as good as new without excavating the pipe.
