Sewer Line Rodding

Sewer Line Rodding

 As a home or business owner, it’s important that your plumbing system remains free and clear. A clogged sewer line could cost thousands of dollars in repairs, as it can cause severe damage to your plumbing system and property. Fortunately, sewer line rodding is an effective technique that can help you keep your plumbing system free from clogging and prevent future complications.

What Is Sewer Rodding?

When your sewer lines face a blockage, it could cause the wastewater to back up into different areas of your home. This eventually creates unsanitary conditions in the property, leaving you and the plumbing system at risk. Simply put, sewer line rodding is an effective way of thoroughly cleaning your plumbing system. In some instances, it’s the only method of cleaning blocked drains or pipes. It’s most effective for stubborn and hard to access blockages, catering to both small and large piping systems alike. Sewer rodding is dirty work, and it is certainly not a DIY type of project.

How Sewer Rodding Works

The procedure is fairly straightforward, but it requires a trained eye in order to work through the process error-free. Essentially, a series of connected cables are threaded end to end, which serve as the rods used for the process. This flexible plumbing rod is fed through the drains or pipes to identify and clear any clogging. A sharp mechanical head that is attached at the end helps break up the blockages.

The rod is designed to bend while staying firm enough to push the accumulated gunk out of the pipes. Once the blockage is found, a motor is used to spin the head rapidly and break up these problematic clogs. The teeth-like design cuts through the gunk and helps the debris flow down through the pipes. When you hire ULB-DRY Waterproofing, our team also cleans up the mess once the blockage is cleared. This thoroughly restores the flow and gets the sewer line back to functioning as it should. 

What Are the Benefits?

Experts recommend having your drains cleaned with rodding to keep the plumbing system in pristine condition. Rodding is a common technique that’s incredibly effective, and it works well when particular sections of the sewer line require a thorough cleaning. Rodding is affordable, increases the plumbing system’s lifespan, facilitates better water flow, reduces molds and mildew, and removes foul odors.

It’s important to note that sewer line rodding is a specialized process that should be carried out only by professionals. Professionals have the right equipment to tackle on-site problems thoroughly and carefully. Attempting to use the method on your own, without proper training, may result in more harm than good.

It’s best to take immediate action if you notice any of the following signs with your plumbing system:

  • Water in the sink takes a long time to drain
  • Water backing up into your toilet, shower, tub, or sink
  • Greens (weeds or plants) growing in your pipes
