Equipped with the most technologically sophisticated and state-of-the-art equipment, Fox Valley Plumbing technicians are available to provide you with rodding services for all of your drainage needs. Tree root infestations are one of the leading causes of sewer line blockages. This is especially common in older homes with less modern sewers.
Clay tile sewer lines are quite susceptible to tree roots, bushes, and big shrubs growing in through the connection points of the pipes that occur every couple of feet. The long thin roots form masses that can grow into tight balls and then grow until they fill the pipes in every direction. It is these root masses that act similar to filters. They often tend to catch toilet paper, hair, grease from your kitchen sink, and other debris that may catch in the system lines when they are washed down the drain and into the sewer system.
These obstructions are tough to deal with as a homeowner and should only be removed by trained professionals. Other things that can lead to sewer line issues are sagging pipes, foreign objects, collapsed pipes, broken pipes, or misaligned pipes. We have the means to diagnose and clear each one of these unique clogs and problems safely through our sewer line cleaning services in Elgin, IL, and the surrounding areas.
Power rodding is a process that involves a high-tech motorized rotating mechanical head on a cable that we can insert into a sewer line and piping. This powerful tool works safely and efficiently to cut root masses and breakthrough obstructions within the pipes. This clears the sewer line of any and all obstructions and root blockages that have built up over time. This sewer line cleaning method is modern, safe, effective, and efficient—absolutely safe for your pipes and safe for the environment.
