Isn’t it a pain when a urinal gets clogged up

One of the dirtiest jobs in plumbing. Can you imagine cleaning a urinal in a commercial building that everyone uses.

When tackling cleaning and unclogging a urinal there are sometimes multiple way to perform this type of work. No matter how you clean a urinal it’s going to be a very dirty smelly drain cleaning job. Urinals are just like toilets, very breakable and must be handled with care from whomever is working on them. Once you get the urinal removed from the wall it sits on make sure to place down carefully. With the urinal removed from the wall you now have access to the drain itself. We’ve unclogged urinals in the first 5ft and sometimes we’ve had to run cables over 50ft cause the plumbing didn’t tie in for a while. Worst case scenario is hat you have to bring a jetter to open and remove hard built up calcium within the drain line.

Leave It To The Pros

Almost each and every house, commercial facility that has a working sewer system has roots somewhere in their line. If they don’t consider them lucky and one of the few.

Tree roots that intrude sewer line is no joke and can be quite serious some day. Maybe tomorrow and maybe 10 years from now but addressing the issue and understanding how to proceed is very crucial and can save you thousands of dollars. Cleaning a sewer system yearly or more is the way to treat the issue at hand until it can’t be cleaned or opened. Think of it as going in for an oil change or a cleaning at the dentist. Property owners that don’t address their sewer line with a professional company will end up with a much higher expense. Cleaning your sewer line each year might cost you anywhere from $175-$375 depending on how long your line is and how often it has been cleaning professionally in the past. Remember, not everyone that cleans sewer lines cleans them properly. Next time your sewer line backs up get a referral from a family member of friend. Also, there are websites like Yelp and Angie’s List that are very good resources.

When people think of drain cleaning they think icky dirty gross work and it is but don’t for one second think it’s easy work. Drain and sewer cleanings work very hard to open and clear lines. Sometimes drain lines may take additional time depending on their condition. No two sewer lines are the same, they all shift and collapse differently and in their own way.
