  • Drains

    • What type of pipe is used in my home?

      It’s important to know of what materials your home’s plumbing system is made. Outdated materials like clay or lead can lead to large-scale issues with your pipes. Damage, scale buildup and frequent clogs can wreak havoc on residential plumbing. When you schedule your drain cleaning service with After Hour Plumbing & Drain, we use the latest tools and technology to identify what type of pipes you have so that we can service them with precision.

    • How do professionals unclog a drain?
      You may wonder if there really is a difference between a do-it-yourself drain clean and a professional service. What’s so special — how do plumbers clear blocked drains? Our team doesn’t rely on hazardous, chemical drain cleaners. Instead, we use devices like plumbing snakes and hydro jetting equipment to physically remove your blockages. We’re well-versed in working with all types of plumbing systems, so if you’re struggling with frequent clogs, reach out to us today!
    • What is hydro jetting?
      Hydro jetting is a powerful plumbing technique used to clear stubborn blockages from drains and sewer lines. This process involves the use of a specialized high-pressure water jet to forcefully blast water through the pipes, breaking down grease, tree roots, scale, and other obstructions. This is a safe and environmentally friendly method that thoroughly cleans the interior of your pipes, promoting optimal water flow. This advanced technology helps prevent future clogs and ensures long-lasting results for your plumbing system.
    • What is a sewer camera inspection used for?
      A pipe inspection camera is a valuable tool our team uses to visually inspect the interior of sewer lines and drains. It consists of a high-resolution camera attached to a flexible cable that can be inserted into the pipes. The camera sends real-time footage to a monitor, allowing our plumbers to examine the condition of the pipes, and identify clogs, cracks, leaks, or other issues that may not be visible from the outside. Sewer camera inspections help diagnose sewer problems precisely, enabling targeted repairs and ultimately saving time and costs.
    • What does descaling a pipe mean?

      Descaling a pipe refers to the process of removing mineral deposits, scale, and other accumulated debris from the interior walls of a scaled pipe. Descaling pipes involves using specialized tools or chemicals to dissolve and dislodge these deposits, restoring the pipe’s smooth surface and improving water flow. This preventive maintenance technique helps prevent clogs, corrosion, and potential plumbing damage. If you’re interested in scheduling your descaling service, reach out to After Hour Plumbing & Drain!
