We are available 24-hours a day for drain cleaning, rooter services, and hydro jetting throughout Tucson.
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.
Here at Plumber of Tucson, we are well equipped to deal with the most complicated drain backups.
By carrying the most advanced equipment for drain cleaning and rooter services we can ensure your drain blockages won’t return.
Even if you don’t have a cleanout, we can still get the drain cleared.
If your sewer line is clogged and you need immediate service, reach out to us by phone now and we’ll get right on it.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
-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
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.
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.
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)
