A clogged drain is a major inconvenience for homeowners and businesses. When drains or pipes have a leak, are clogged and or are backing up, the overflowing water smells and leaks into all areas of the home or building. From the basement to the kitchen and bathroom, and even outside in the yard, sewage and wastewater can have a terrible smell and cause a major issue.

You need a plumber or drain cleaner from American Rooter if you hear gurgling, or have a water leaking from your drain pipe, or if it is backed up.

We can help you with all of your drain snaking, water jetting, and camera inspection needs for drains and pipes of all sizes to make sure they are clean, healthy and flowing properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Electric snaking of a clogged drain is always the first and least expensive option to clear a clog. Most ambitious homeowners attempt to snake out the drain by themselves with a large number of them only ending up with hours of aggravation and having spent extra money. Make no mistake. As easy as a professional plumbing drain snaker makes it look, there is a level of skill in handling the drain snaking equipment. American Rooter, The Drain Experts™ has professional techs who clean drains in CT all day long. A normal blockage should take anywhere from 25 to 50 minutes to clear in almost every type drain. Whether it’s a flooding toilet or basement drain, American Rooter will open a plugged drain line. Our electrical drain snakes are the best in the business for cleaning any type of stopped up drain smaller than 6″ diameter.

For larger diameter and long drain pipes, American Rooter, The Drain Experts™, uses water jet tools to clean the drain. This service is often described as a jet rodder, hydro jet or hydro jetter. The water jet is almost always used in larger pipes found in commercial, municipal, or industrial plumbing. The water jetter is also the best option in all size pipes with a dipped pipe blockage. Bellied pipes usually have heavy sludge or grease build up in the pipe over time and a drain snaking won’t open the drain. The water-jet can be used with all types of nozzles to cut through grease, soap, or tree root blockages in drain pipes. The jetter also is the best choice for silt or sand and leaves in a pipe because the high pressure water jet can flush out all of the debris. For this reason, hydrojetting is almost always used to clean storm catch basin drains.
