Consumers often are under the mistaken impression that a variety of items – disposable diapers, baby wipes, etc. – can be flushed down the toilet. “Anything that says, ‘Flushable’ – it’s really not,” said DR Drain owner Dan Rombaugh. His advice? Don't flush anything other than waste and toilet paper down the toilet.
Grease is a common cause of clogged kitchen drains. In addition to grease, even small amounts of food can gradually build up in drains, causing them to clog. Avoid putting grease, food or any other items down the kitchen sink.
Tree roots often can grow into and clog drain pipes, causing costly repairs.
DR Drain provides professional drain services for unclogging kitchen sinks, toilets, bathtubs, bathroom sinks, bar sinks and floor drains.
Drains see a lot of action over time, which is why they eventually clog. For kitchens, it's the buildup of soap, grease, food and other residue that collects on the walls of the pipes and causes blockage. For bathroom showers, tubs and sinks, hair and soap are the culprits. As for toilets, it's facial tissue, paper towels, baby wipes and other products not made to disintegrate. When these instances arise, you need the assistance of an experienced drain cleaning plumber to resolve the issue.
While resorting to the wide range of do-it-yourself products on the market may seem like a quick and easy fix, these products only offer temporary aid and can sometimes cause bigger problems down the road for your sewer and septic systems. For experienced assistance, call DR Drain to help clear your clogged drains without damaging your pipes and/or the environment.
DR Drain Cleaning LLC. are now certified Perma-Liner Industries LLC. installers. Our ZERO DIG repair method is the most cost-effective approach to repairing broken or damaged sewer lines. This system can restore the underground pipe to “better than new condition” in just a matter of hours. These repairs can be made without disturbing landscaping, roads, asphalt, etc. Everything happens underground with no excavation.
A resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth or a number of other materials suitable for resin impregnation, is inverted or pulled into a damaged pipe. It is usually done from the upstream access point (manhole or excavation). It is possible to invert the liner upstream (e.g. from the downstream access point) but this carries greater risk. It is possible to install a liner from the downstream access point, upstream to a blind end however this carries the highest risk of all the CIPP installation methods. Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless process, making for a potentially more cost-effective and less disruptive method than traditional “dig and replace” pipe repair methods.
These images of a pipe cutaway tell the story of what cured-in-place pipelining means. They illustrate a failing pipeline with root intrusion, corrosion or even breakage. The lower pipe illustration shows the same pipeline with a rehabilitated relined and sealed new pipe liner. This is the core of our business and could mean the difference between costly excavation and rebuilding of infrastructure versus a simple day of No-Excavation pipe repair solutions.
Our patented cured-in-place pipe repair systems provide you with a solution to failing underground sewer and pipelines. Our extensive line of trenchless pipe repair systems can rehabilitate pipes ranging from 3″ – 8″ in diameter.
