Main Line Plumbing Covington

Covington homeowners have probably experienced sewage issues. They can be very inconvenient and costly to have to deal with. This is especially true if preventative measures are not taken, and not dealing with the issues quickly could mean that the issue quickly becomes worse. For example, a leaking pipe can turn into a bursting pipe. Or, a toilet not flushing properly that can be dealt with by a plunger can easily end up requiring a plumber’s help and may need a more intrusive method. 

Clean Out Plumbing Covington

Clogged drains might be one of the most common plumbing issues that arise for homeowners in Covington. More often than not, it can be solved by simply using a plunger. This is especially true if caution is taken when using drains and how much material is poured down drains at one time. However, if you’re experiencing persistent issues that keep coming up, it may be time to call a plumber for professional drain clean out services.


How do plumbers do their job? There are various methods that could be used, and they are not all created equal. Most of the time, there are preferred methods that can be used and a plumber can distinguish the best method to use when assessing each particular home.

Here are common drain cleaning methods used:

Motorized drain snakes. These are also known as drain augers. They can be sourced from commercially in models that are manual. However, the results are not as good as when a pro-grade motorized drain snake is used. Coils of wire are sent down pipes and used as a sort of corkscrew where it can either draw out the blockage or break it down. They can be used for most blockages if a skilled technician uses it.


Air burst method. Using accelerated gas such as carbon dioxide, particles are cleaned out with this gas force which pushes them out. This method is faster than some other methods such as chemical draining. It is also very effective, reaching very far into pipe 


Video camera pipe inspection. Knowing how to solve a pipe problem requires the knowledge of the core issue causing the blockage. A video camera inspection is able to show plumbers just exactly what the problem is - with minimal invasion. These cameras are small and contain a LED light on top of the fiber optic cable. With it, a plumber can see deep down in the piping what is causing the blockage.
