How Does Sewer Rodding Work?

Sewer rodding works by forcing a rod, tool, chemicals, or water down the sewer line to remove clogs blocking your flow. The entire process of rodding out drains and sewer lines can take several hours.

Our experienced plumbers will inspect your sewer line to determine the source of the clog. Depending on what is causing the clog, a plumber will use different tools for different jobs. For example, a plumber will use a grease cutter to drill through the blockage if you have a grease clog.

Sewer rodding is safe on pipes, drains, and sewer pipes. However, sewer rodding service must be done by a professional plumbing company, especially if chemicals are required. Otherwise, you risk causing worse plumbing issues than a blocked drain.

When Do You Need Sewer Rodding Service?

If you suspect a blockage in your home’s pipes, main sewer line, or drains, then it’s time to call experienced plumbers to rod your sewer.

Depending on the extent of the blockage, a couple of different cleaning methods could be used, so it’s essential to call on a professional to inspect the issue and recommend the best course of action.

Some of the signs that you may need sewer rodding or drain rodding services include the following:

  • Slow-draining sinks

  • Unpleasant odors coming from the drains

  • Sewer system backup in sinks, toilets, tubs, or floor drains

Benefits of Sewer Rodding Services

There are many benefits to sewer rodding services, and each has the potential to improve a property significantly.

Quickly and Effectively Remove Blockages

Using mechanical rodding cables, high water pressure, and the right chemicals, rodding will completely free blockages from the sewer line quickly and efficiently, letting you get back to living in a clean and healthy home.

With proper sewer rodding, drains will be clean and clear in less than a day.

Limit Damage to Pipes

If you leave blockages of tree roots for too long, you risk having those tree roots weaken and break your sewer lines. If you have a home where the plumbing is hard to access, this can cause you to have to spend thousands of dollars on repairs.

Preventative sewer rodding maintenance keeps your drain line open and less likely to cause a back-up of sewerage into the home.

How Much Does Sewer Rodding Cost?

The cost of rodding varies significantly depending on the size and type of blockage, the location we have to work from, the number of passes it takes to remove the blockage, the length of the sewer, and a number of other factors. Once a technician arrives at the job site and can assess the situation, he can quote a cost for the the plumbing services you need.
