Sewer Line Cleaning Tucson

Tucson Hydro Jetting

Hydro Jetting is a process in which high pressure water, at times close to 4000 PSI, is used to clear pipes of grease, debris, roots and blockages.
Hydro Jetting is a more efficient way to clean your drain. Not only does it just clean and unclog your drain, it is the only way to completely restore your drain pipe to its normal condition. Even tough to clear items like tree roots, sludge, or hardened build up are easily cleared out of your drain with Hydro Jetting.

Why Hydro Jetting?

Simply put, its cost effective.

Traditional methods of cleaning out your drain will still require a cleaning at least twice a year from buildup. With Hyrdo Jetting it’s more economically effective as it completely removes any clogs, debris, or buildup for years to come.

Common questions and answers regarding Drain & Sewer Cleaning in Tucson

My drain clog caused a flood in my bathroom, do you clean it up?

Yes, we can help clean it up.  Here at Plumber of Tucson, we not only provide plumbing and drain service but also water damage cleanup from sewer or drain overflows.  We will extract the sewage and neutralize the area. If damage occurs from the water, don’t worry, we can fix that too.

How do your prices compare to other drain cleaning services in Tucson?

Our drain cleaning service in Tucson is one of the lowest in town.  This is because we work off of referrals and word of mouth. We don’t spend tons of money on advertising, therefore keeping our overheads down and passing on that savings to you.  

After flushing my toilet, it backed up in the shower- Why is this?

Each drain will connect into a larger drain at some point in the home.  When the larger drain clogs it will often backup in the lowest point of the home. Because shower and tub drains are at the floor level, this is often one of the lowest points in the home.

Why do I hear a gurgling in my kitchen drain after running my laundry?  

Typically, the laundry and the kitchen drain tie-in together before connecting into the main drain. When one clogs, you may hear gurgling in the other drain because they are connected.

Why does my sewer line clog multiple times a year?

Main sewer lines often clog due to tree roots.  If your clog repeatedly happens, you may have a tree root issue.  A sewer camera can inspect the inside of the drain diagnosing the cause of backup.  If you suspect roots have invaded your sewer line, we can conduct a sewer camera inspection for you.  

Why does one toilet bubble when other is flushed?  

This is a symptom of a clog in the main drain or a clog in the vent not allowing the drain lines to breathe.   Often, toilet lines are connected and then run into a larger drain. When this larger drain clogs, it can affect more than one toilet.  The gurgle is usually one toilet attempting to get air so it can flush. Because there is water backed up in the drain, the toilet gurgles.

How do you get rid of tree roots inside my sewer line?  

The only way to stop roots from entering a sewer line is to repair that section with new pipe and fittings.  Alternatively, if you have a large root mass that has grown inside the drain, you can use a root cutting drain machine to cut out the roots, then flush the pipe with high pressure water jetting to clean the drain.  Once the roots have been successfully cut back, you can inject a foaming root killer in the drain to help stunt the growth of roots. Although this method is effective at not allowing the tree roots to return as often, this method won’t keep them out forever.  

Why does my toilet bubble when shower drains?

This is commonly due to a main drain blockage.  When the water drains from your sewer line it needs air to allow the water to travel down the pipe.  If the drain is clogged, then the air flow can also be blocked. The toilet can bubble or gurgle as it is attempting to get air so it can allow the drain to breathe and drain out successfully.

Can you clear my drain if I don’t have a cleanout?

Yes. There are multiple ways to clear a drain.  We can go from a p-trap under the sink, or a cleanout from a different branch drain.  Alternatively, we can access the drain from a roof vent.

What happens if my drain is broken?  

We can repair it.  Here at Plumber of Tucson, we carry trenchless sewer replacement technology.  This means if your drain is damaged, broken, corroded, or leaking, we can often fix it without needing to dig it up.  Learn more about trenchless sewer repair in Tucson here.

Do you provide drain camera service?  

Yes, we do.  We offer a wide range of drain camera services throughout Tucson. We can inspect small drains and large sewers. We use high definition CCTV equipment to see inside the drain.  We can also locate the path of the pipe and pinpoint problem areas down to the inch. Need to know where to dig? We can handle it. Do you suspect a problem within your pipes? Let us know, we can help using drain and sewer camera technology.

What kind of equipment do you use for drain cleaning?

We employ various forms of equipment for drain cleaning.  From standard rooter machines to high pressure water jetting equipment.  We also carry specialized root cutting machines and cast iron de-scaling equipment.  This allows us to handle pretty much any drain issue you have. We carry small machines for tubs and showers and large sewer cleaning machines for commercial projects.  If you have a drain problem, we can fix it.

How Much Does it Cost to Unclog/Snake a Main Sewer Line in Tucson?

Cost for unclogging a main sewer line ranges from $149 to $357. The price can vary based on the sewer access, location of the cleanout, composition of sewer, the length of sewer, and difficulty of the clog.

How Often Should Sewer Pipes Be Cleaned?

Sewer pipes shouldn’t need routine maintenance, unless there is a mechanical failure in the sewer system that causes persistent clogs. A mechanical failure could be a root intrusion that has invaded the sewer line, a sewer line that has reverse grade (when the sewer line slopes the wrong way) or a “belly” or there is a broken, cracked, or missing section of sewer pipe.
If you don’t have a mechanical failure in your sewer pipe, there isn’t a reason to have the sewer cleaned. If you are experiencing routine clogs in your sewer, it’s best to have a plumber use a sewer camera to inspect and identify the cause of routine blockages.

How Do I Clear My Main Sewer Line?

Clearing your main sewer line requires the use of drain/snake equipment. This equipment can be rented from places such as Home Depot. To help you best, use YouTube to learn how to operate a drain/snake machine and ascertain if it’s something you can comfortably handle without calling a plumber. If you need a plumber to unclog your main sewer line, we’re more than happy to help. Give us a call today.

How Much Does it Cost to Clean Your Drains?

Drain cleaning service is usually in the range of $149 to $357. Drains can clog for various reasons and the equipment needed to clean/unclog your drain can affect the price.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Clogged Sewer Lines?

Although coverages for properties can vary, as can insurance company policies, we usually find that most homeowners insurance doesn’t cover clogged sewer lines in the Tucson area.

How Do I Know if My Main Sewer Line is Clogged?

Since all the drains within the home connect to the main sewer line, multiple drains will be affected when your main sewer line is clogged. The easiest way to tell if the main sewer line is clogged is by running water down a sink, shower/tub, or by flushing the toilet and see if water rises or backs up in the shower/tub. If you flush your toilet and you see water in the shower/tub, then your main sewer line is clogged. If you run water down your kitchen drain and your toilet gurgles, then your main sewer line is clogged.

Can a Plumber Unclog a Sewer Line?

Not all plumbers provide sewer clearing service, however, most of them do. If you need a Plumber in Tucson to unclog your sewer line, count on us at Plumber of Tucson.

Is a Clogged Sewer Line an Emergency?

As long as you don’t continue to use the water a sewer line clog can wait until a plumber can arrive to help. The sewer will not continue to overflow as long as you discontinue the use of water in the house. That includes not running wash machines, dishwashers, or flushing toilets.

Why Your Toilet Gurgles Bubbles When Another Drain Is Used

drain cleaning services tucson

If you noticed your toilet bubbling or gurgling after a separate drain is used, it is a common sign that your main sewer line is clogged.

All the drains in the home are connected to the main drain. To make it easier to understand, think of your drain configuration like a tree with all of its branches. Each branch (drain) leads into a tree trunk (main sewer). The main (trunk) sewer line collects all the waste from each fixture and then heads to the city sewer to dispose.

If you have a clog that is related to only one fixture (meaning the clog is only affecting one drain, not multiple,) this means it is only a branch drain clog.

If you have a clog that is affecting multiple drains or is backing up into another drain, this usually signifies the clog is deeper down the line.

When drains are connected, and one of them clogs, very often the water will surface at a low spot in the home.

The toilet and shower/tub are the fixtures that are typically lowest to the ground. Being that your main sewer line is located under the home, the lowest fixtures in the home are usually a toilet or tub/shower.

Why does the drain gurgle or bubble?

This happens because the drainage system is trying to get air to breathe. The vent pipes (the drainage pipes that stick out of your roof) not only allow sewer gasses to escape but also allow air into the drain to allow the drain to flow.

Think of a straw you would use for drinking. If you stuck the straw into a cup full of water, blocked the end of the straw, and then pulled it out, all the water would remain in the straw. Your drains work similarly, in that they need air to drain.

When using a drain that backs up into the other, this tells you two things:

1. The drains are connected together.

2. There is a clog in the drain line that supplies drainage to those two fixtures.

In the illustration below, you will see how two drains can be connected, and at what point the clog may exist.

clogged section of toilet

As you see, if the drain connecting the kitchen and laundry drain clogs, it will affect both drains.  Whichever fixture is located at the lowest level, the water will rise in that fixture. 

Symptoms of a Clogged Main Sewer Line

-Drain gurgles or bubbles when being used

-Toilet backs up into the bathtub or shower

-Toilet gurgles or bubbles when flushed

-Toilet flushes slow or backs up into another toilet

-Sink or toilet gurgle when another drain is used

-Sink gurgles when washing machine is draining

-Toilet overflows when washing machine drains

-Shower or tub fills up when another drain is used

-When a drain is used it backs up into a floor drain or basement drain


How do I determine where the blockage exists in my drain?

There are 3 main reasons for a clogged main sewer line

1. Tree roots

Tree roots are the number one cause of sewer line clogs.  Roots are very strong and can easily penetrate older sewer lines. Commonly, tree roots invade fittings that are weak in the pipe.  When roots overtake the sewer line, water, debris, and solids can no longer pass through. Eventually, the drain backs up into the home.

2. Reverse grade or “Belly” in the Drain

(also known as low area, sag, or flat spot)

Reverse grade (belly) is when the sewer pipe slopes the incorrect way. This could be caused by earth shifting (earthquakes or other geological occurrences)  which may add pressure to the pipe resulting in distortion. Bellies can also occur when tree roots push down on the sewer pipe in a particular area, causing the pipe to slope incorrectly.  Bellies can also occur because of poor dirt compaction or human technical error.  This happens when the sewer is originally installed.

cracked & damaged drain

3. Broken, Cracked, or Collapsed Drain Pipe

Broken or collapsed sewer lines can result from multiple causes. When roots invade a sewer pipe they can easily bust the pipe, resulting in a collapse. Earth shifting (earthquake) can result in a distorted sewer pipe. Serious ground movement can cause a pipe to completely collapse. Often, old age and deterioration cause sewer pipes to fail.

What should I do if I have a clogged main sewer line?

Leaving the drain unattended does not make the issue go away.  When a sewer line clogs, it is important to address the issue immediately, to avoid water damage.  If you are running a dishwasher or a washing machine when the main sewer is clogged, water may seep out of the bottom of the toilet and spread sewage all over the floor. For this reason, it is prudent to be proactive about this issue and take action before disaster occurs. 

There are ultimately 4 things you can do when your sewer line is clogged:

1. Call a plumber to alleviate the drain clog and inspect the cause of backup.

2. Rent an electric drain machine (also known as a snake) from a local hardware store and attempt clearing the blockage yourself.

3. Use a chemical drain cleaner that you can purchase from the hardware store. (Although this method is not recommended by professionals, it is an option for you nonetheless)

4. Leave it, and hope the clog clears itself. (Although extremely rare, it can happen)
