Kitchen Drain Clogs

Pro Tip: Avoid putting fats, oils, and grease down the kitchen drain line.

Common kitchen sink clogs occur due to fat, oil, and grease (FOGs) buildup. As they drain into the line, FOGs stick to the porous cast iron slowly building over time. As it builds, it closes off the diameter of the pipe so food particles, and even water, can become a clogging agent.

We recommend scraping plates before rinsing them, wipe down pots and pans after cooking and before washing, and avoid putting anything down the drain. If there is a disposal, it should be used only as a means to push small particles down the line.

When the kitchen does become clogged, our team has a variety of solutions. The first step is a standard kitchen drain snaking service. We will use our professional drain equipment to clear the line of common blockages such as food items. Snaking is an effective way of clearing minor stoppages.

If the line is heavily clogged with grease or sludge, we can hydro jet the line. Hydro jetting uses high-pressure water and is the most effective way to remove years of buildup in kitchen sink lines.

Lavatory, Shower, and Tub Drain Clogs

Pro Tip: Make sure all bathroom drains have the appropriate screen or drain pop-up assembly installed.

Lavatory sinks can easily become clogged by items that fall into the drain line, hair from grooming, and soap product buildup. A routine snaking will help to clear most lavatory clogs, and often items can be retrieved from the trap under the sink. If an expensive heirloom or wedding ring falls down the drain, stop using the sink immediately and call the professional team at City Plumbing & Rooter.  

Tub and shower clogs are most commonly caused by hair buildup. Consider using a small mesh strainer instead of the ones with larger holes. They can be purchased at any home store and will catch hair before it travels into the drain saving money.

Snaking is the best method to retrieve hair from a shower and/or tub drain.

Toilet Clogs and Main Sewer Line Backups

Pro Tip: Put only toilet paper in the toilet.

Toilet clogs happen for a few reasons. Older toilets can become clogged through calcium buildup that closes off the drain inside the toilet itself, normal blockage not clearing past the toilet flange, feminine hygiene products or paper towels in the line, or from the main sewer line backing up.

If the toilet is the only slow drain, it is likely a simple clog and easily solved by an expert and professional plumber using the proper equipment. Homeowners should use plungers sparingly, as they can loosen the toilet seal and cause leaks.

If the main sewer line is clogged, it could be for a number of reasons: roots, feminine products, and broken or damaged lines. Using a professional main sewer snake, our team can clear a main sewer clog through ground level cleanouts, roof vents, and by removing the toilet and snaking through the toilet drain.

If roots or hard blockages are found, we recommend performing a sewer camera inspection to view the line. It will show the cause of the blockage and give us the best course for repair recommendations.

Permanent solutions for main sewer line repairs can be as simple as a sewer hydro jetting service, pipe lining solution, or partial or complete replacement. We have more than 20 years of expertise in diagnosis and repair of main sewer line problems.

Highly recommend!!!! I've had my unfortunate share of emergency plumbing needs and seen my fair share of plumbers. City Plumbing and Rooter by far has been the best experience I have had. They are prompt, honest, and do exceptional work. What more can you ask for? I have a young toddler who is all over the place and they even cared to ensure all the equipment was clean and not any type of hazard to her while they worked. Their attention to detail is clear not only in their work, but also how they handle their relationships and clients over all. I will never call anyone else again!

I don't always leave a 5 star review but, I give credit where credit is due. I called City Plumbing to see when they can come out and assess/fix a kitchen leak and the whole experience was seamless and professional from there on. Their staff was nice over the phone and they sent Paul within the hour. Paul was very pleasant & thorough with his diagnoses of the situation. You can tell he's very passionate about what he does, and very knowledgeable. He explained everything and answered all my questions in a way that I can understand. He was able to find the root of the leak and give me options for the types of repairs that can be made. Within couple hours, my leaky plumbing issue was fixed. I was very impressed with their services and recommend them to anyone in the area!

This review is long over due as we had City Plumbing and Rooter out to our place about 4 months ago to unclog a drain. I had to be sure and give these guys 5 stars as they cleared our drain in record time and also uncovered other major plumbing issues in our yard. The crews work was impeccable. They replaced my line and left my yard looking just as it did before they started their work. I will be recommending City Plumbing & Rooter to all of my family and friends.

City Plumbing and Rooter was great. We contacted them after 7:00 PM and they came out within 30 minutes on the same day. Excellent response from the beginning. We had a shower/tub combo that was not draining and received a quote and they came out and fixed our problem for the price quoted. Very professional and friendly. I highly recommend.

Paul and his crew were great! They came out on a Sunday to help us with a serious leak from the auto fill valve for our pool. They also assisted us by installing some shut off valves and regulators to reduce the water pressure. These guys were great, hard working and did great work.
