Understanding Sewer Main Rodding

drain cleaning in Melbourne, FL

If your sink or shower is draining slowly, the first challenge is determining where the clog is located. It can be in the indoor plumbing, or it can be in the sewer line outside the home. Pipe Surgeons has the equipment to determine the location of the clog quickly with our expertise in a number of methods for professional drain cleaning in Melbourne, FL.

Whether the clogged drain is in a residential, commercial, or industrial property, the first step is determining where the clog is located. This is because different equipment and techniques are needed for indoor and outdoor clogs. We use a camera inspection to see the clog, which means no guesswork for our professionals. Our team can get to work quickly and know the equipment that they need to use. 

At Pipe Surgeons, we recommend sewer main rodding among our range of drain cleaning services when there is a severe blockage and wastewater is not draining correctly. Clearing and cleaning your pipes at least once a year can assure you that your sewer main will function as intended while making sure that the wastewater goes where it should go.

Sewer Main Rodding vs Drain Snaking

Drain snaking and sewer main rodding are similar, but keep in mind that a drain snake works on a smaller scale and is used inside the house. A sewer rod, on the other hand, is much sturdier and longer than a drain snake. The rod is inserted into the pipe and used to cut through the clog.

The most common causes of clogs are tree roots, grease buildup, and putting items down the drain like baby wipes. A cutting head is attached to the end of the rod that is designed to quickly cut through these types of items. The sewer main rod is driven by an electric motor at a high speed to get through the clog quickly. Sewer main rodding is a cost-effective solution for clearing a sewer drain.
