Sacramento Drain Clearing

Drain Cleaning/Clearing & Rooter Services Experts


We Clear Drains

Toilet back-ups, tub blockages, bathroom sink draining slow, gurgling kitchen sinks to blocked mainlines, we clear them all. Armed with the latest plumbing technology, plumbing skills and plumbing experience, our plumbers are properly trained to handle any drain challenge throughout Sacramento and surrounding counties.

Rooter machines and snakes are critical for overcoming typical sewer, drain and pipe problems. This unique plumbing technology operates by inserting a rotating cable with an attached blade through your pipes. The blade spins and dislodges the build-up due to grease, soap, tree roots and other foreign particles.

Hydro-Jetting

Fix those slow drains; get rid of the sludge build up. Hydro-jetting is a new technology process that can actually clean your sewer and drain lines.

Similar to a high pressure washing system for your home or automobile, this technology uses water under high pressure to scour the pipe walls clean of grease, debris, roots, sand or dirt and flush it all out and away down the pipes.

It is truly amazing what a Hydro-Jetting machine with a rotary nozzle can accomplish. Routine quarterly hydro jetting maintenance can keep headaches and emergencies away.

Sewer Drain Line Video Inspections

When drain clearing/rooter service just won’t clear your clogs or slow drains. It might be necessary to use a video to see exactly what’s going on. These high tech cameras allow us to see if a sewer line or drain repair is necessary. The miniature camera finds out exactly what and where the problem is without the big expense of “exploratory” plumbing. Video inspection can also confirm the structural condition of your lateral pipes. It can tell you if an auger or high-pressure flush can solve the problem, or if more extensive sewer line repair is needed. If you a concerned you have a Root blockage or drain damage you can have a Crystal Blue Technician camera your pipes and show you exactly what your pipe condition looks like. We offer a free camera service with every mainline clearing.

What to Know About Your Clogged Drain

Kitchen Drains - Grease, soap and food waste can take their toll, making your drains clog and run more slowly over time.

Shower/Bathtub Drains - Water should drain immediately when you’re showering and in just a few minutes after a bath. If it’s draining slowly, your tub or shower trap and drainpipe is probably clogged with soap and hair.

Bathroom Sink Drains - Slow draining and clogs are often a result of toothpaste, soap and grime. If you lose something down the drain, don’t run any more water. Call Crystal Blue and we should be able to retrieve the lost item without too much difficulty.

Toilet Drains - A clogged toilet is often caused by attempting to flush facial tissue, baby wipes or other products that don’t disintegrate the way toilet paper does. Fortunately, there’s a special plumbing tool that can cut through any obstruction while hugging the inside wall of the pipe, giving your toilet drain a thorough cleaning at the same time.

Floor Drains - Basements, laundry rooms, garages, patios, driveways and even older bathrooms often have a drain to carry away water and prevent flooding. Usually they are equipped with a trap that should be filled with water to prevent odors and sewer gas from escaping. Regular drain cleaning is recommended to prevent major clogs especially commercial kitchens.

Sewer Main Lines- All your household drains lead into your main sewer line, which connects to a city sewer line or septic tank. The clogging culprit here is usually water-seeking roots that can actually break through the line and clog the drain.

Sewer & Drain Line Common Problems

Your sewer lines are the most important home improvement investment you can make. Immediately improve your home equity with clean outs, sewer line repairs & sewer line replacements. Crystal Blue Plumbing is more than just the leader in Sacramento drain clearing; we also offer both traditional and trenchless sewer line repair and replacement. Making sure you have a safe and secure sewer line leading out to your sewer system is highly important. Problems with sewer lines can lead to clogs, corrosion, cracked or broken pipes, faulty or leaking joints, root infiltration, various blockages and unhealthy leakages.

Here are some possible drain clogging culprits:

  • Root infiltration - tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or have damaged the line
  • Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipe - damaged pipes due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
  • Blockage - grease buildup or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning of the line.
  • Corrosion - the pipe has deteriorated, aged, and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.
  • Pipe with Belly- a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste
  • Leaking Joints - the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water or sewage to escape into the area surrounding the pipe
  • Off-grade Pipe - existing pipes are constructed of substandard material that may have deteriorated or corroded

Interesting Fact about Rooter:

You’ve heard the names Mr. Rooter, Rooter King, Roto Rooter, Rapid Rooter or Rescue Rooter. So what does Rooter really mean? The Rooter definition means “one who roots”. This came from the term sewer rodder, which is explained as an industrial machine that is motor driven and pushes its way through sewer line pipes. That’s why so many drain clearing companies use this “Rooter” term.
