Drain problems often start out as minor inconveniences: a slow-moving drain, a foul odor. But, a clogged drain can become an expensive, messy issue to treat if it’s allowed to build over time. That is why you should be pro-active in treating slow-moving drains as soon as a problem is detected.

Remember: a clogged drain doesn’t just affect that one line; clogs can affect the whole system leading to flow inefficiencies and other issues.

We have a full lineup of state-of-the-art equipment to locate, clear, and flush and remove drain clogs.

The Case Against Drain-Clearing Chemicals

Despite what the commercials say, store-bought drain-cleaning chemicals are more of a hassle than they are worth. Not only are these products bad for the environment, but it’s sort of guessing game as to what type of clog you may have. And, if it doesn’t work, you will most likely call a plumber or rent a semi-pro powered drain snake, which can cause the chemicals to splash onto the person working to clear out the clog.

The Top 7 Items We Find in Drains

Whenever a customer starts a question with, “What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever found…” we know exactly where the conversation is heading. Of course, after doing this as long as we have, there is no type of drain line clog that we haven’t seen before. Some of the most common drain-cloggers we run across include:

Hair — Hair is especially an issue in tub and shower drains. Over time, hair strands mixed with body oils and soap scum can form some serious clogs in bathroom drains. To compound the issue, nearly any foreign object that slips down a tub or shower drain is bound to catch on these soapy hairballs.
Soap — You would think that soap deposits would naturally wash away in a drain line. But, typically, the opposite is true. Soap scum collects more soap scum, which will ultimately lead ot a slow-moving or blocked drain.
Limescale buildup — Hey, it’s Central Indiana. There is so much limestone in the area that we essentially built the nation’s capital with the stuff. Whether you are on municipal or well water there is a good chance you have limescale buildup in your drain lines.
Miscellaneous — The miscellaneous category of clogs keeps this job interesting. This includes personal care items, toys, and even some items that barely fit within a drain. We’ve truly seen it all.
Toilet paper dams — TP dams are quite common, especially in homes with low-flow toilets and older pipes.
Tree roots — Tree roots can invade any type of line that extends below the soil. In many of these cases, the line had already developed cracks which is why the tree roots took over the pipe in the first place.

Video Drain Line Inspections

For those stubborn clogs, John Fowler’s Plumbing can use a camera-led drain snake to locate and diagnose the drain issue.

That’s where a drain line video inspection comes in handy. Using a specialized plumber’s snake fitted with a camera, we can inspect hundreds of feet line and identify the cause and location of your drain’s issue.

By identifying exactly where the issue is we can save you the hassle of tearing up your yard only replace a section of pipe. And, we can typically fix your drain issue the very same day as the inspection.

Help for Damaged Drain Pipes

If you have a drain line that is cracked or corroded, Straight Up! Plumbing has a cost-effective solution that will not damage your drywall, flooring, or lawn. Pipe lining uses a smooth and highly flexible PVC pipe that becomes the new inner lining of the affected drain line. Using this method homeowners experience little inconvenience and the task can be completed in much less time than replacing sections of pipe. Our team also completes drain line repairs and replacements.
