Advances In Drain Cleaning Technology

Call 24/7

When it comes to drain cleaning services, things hardly look like they used to. Today’s technology opens up opportunities for plumbers to provide quicker, more cost-effective solutions for drain cleaning and other plumbing services.

At Plumbing Solutions, we keep up with some of the latest plumbing technology because we consider it our mission to provide our customers with the maximum amount of value — and the quickest relief to their plumbing woes. We are always looking for ways to increase efficiency and pass on these savings to our customers.

In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss four critical pieces of technology that help us to do just that. 

Drain Cameras

One of the things that made drain clearing so difficult in former years is the labor it took to identify the root of the problem. This was especially true if the damage or block was deep underground or even buried within the wall.

Today, plumbers can simply run a snake camera into the drain that helps them locate the source of blockage, no matter how deep it is. This ensures you get an accurate quote for the work that needs to be done and precious time (and money) can be saved because a pinpoint solution can be implemented without taking apart the entire system.

Water Jetting Service

Now here’s a really neat advancement in plumbing technology. Water or hydro jetting is the process of using a high pressure stream of water to power through your pipes. This system powers through debris without causing any damage to your pipes.

Even better, you avoid the use of chemical drain cleaners which simply don’t provide a permanent solution to the problem and can actually eat away at your pipes over time. Hydro jetting also removes bacteria, grease, and soap build up as well!


When you are doing any sort of remodeling, digging, or demolition (usually in the case of commercial properties) it’s vital to know if there are any concealed pipes in your walls, ceilings, floors, or even underground. At Plumbing Solutions we use pipe locators to ensure that nothing critical is damaged when you’re doing this type of work.

Pipe locators use different means to track pipes down, but an experienced plumbing professional will know how to use these tools, tell you exactly where the pipes are, and make plans to help you avoid damaging them. Locators are great tools designed to help protect your pipes and make renovation work easier.


One of the reasons for pipe blockage, pooling water, and backups has to do with the buildup of scales within your pipes. These scales can be corrosive in nature and are likely to damage the longevity of your pipes if they aren’t taken care of on a regular basis. If you haven’t gotten your pipes descaled before, it may help to reach out to a plumber and see if this service is right for you.

In principle, this may seem a lot like hydro jetting, but rather than using water pressure, certain descalers use chains to clear blockages and remove scales from the inside of your pipes. This type of handy tool can help ensure your pipes have a longer life span and stay clog-free.
