When a drain starts running slowly it's time to think about getting it cleared out. A single drain clog is usually caused by the build-up of grease or undissolved soap residue and hair. If every single drain in your home is running slowly, it's a sign that there is a clog in your main drain line. Our Mesquite drain clearing team clears drain clogs of both types.
An individual drain clearing can usually be done with a hand auger or drain snake. We don't use caustic chemicals like Drano or Liquid Plumber because they are not good for the environment or the plumbing system (especially if it's made of PVC). A drain snake can reach clogs up to 25 feet down your drain line. Unfortunately, sometimes a standard snake can't clear the drain sufficiently and a power auger or hydro jet needs to be used.
In the case of a main drain line clog, the major contributing factor is usually a tree root that has broken through into the drain line. There are commercially available root killers that were developed for these removals but again, we don't recommend them.
A mechanical removal by a power auger of hydro jet is the best option here. A standard snake just isn't powerful enough to break through tree roots. The power auger will bore through tree roots and chew them into bits that can be easily moved down the drain.
