Power Rodding or Drain rodding has been around for over 72 yrs
At Family Rooter Drain and Sewer we understand that having a main line drain or sewer line backup can be frustrating. Blockages in a sewer can be caused by many things such as root intrusion, feminine wipes, grease, and an old sewer line. Main line drains typically back up from hair, scum, toddlers who love to flush toys down the toilet. We are here to help you get your sewer or drain unclogged. Let us explain the process.

Drain Rodding or power rodding is the alternative to digging out your sewer pipe or replacing your main line drain to your home and replacing it with a new sewer or drain pipe. At Family Rooter we use our camera to locate where the blockage is in the sewer or drain. We don’t charge our customers a camera service fee as long as they have us do the job.

Once located we will use a Power Rodder or Drain Rodder. This tool is a metal flexible cable with a sharp cutting tool at the end. When we turn on the motor the cable crawls down your pipe or sewer with the sharp blade on the end of it cutting anything in its way clearing tree debris, hair, grease, maybe a few of the less undesirable toys the toddler didn’t like allowing water to flow.

Drain Snake or Power rodding Lake Forest, IL

Drain snakes create a much smaller hole and have a much harder time breaking through difficult clogs. If you are using a hand held drain snake you more than likely are not solving the bigger issue at hand. It may give you temporary relief but in time you will need to have a professional come out and rod your sewer or drain lines.

Review of Family Rooter Drain and Sewer

Talking to James about my sewer plumbing issues I had over the phone. He walked me through the scenarios & quoted me a price over the phone. There was more to my issues I had after buying the house & the previous owner knew about the major issues but didn't disclosed it. James was solid on what needed to be executed so we wouldn't run into a major problem like what we had currently. He came with John, finished the job professionally & respectfully. Workmanship was excellent. Definitely keeping Family Rooter on deck for future work when it's needed. James & John treated me like family. I went through two other plumbing companies for the same issues we had & finally nailed the 3rd one which Family Rooter handled the job done right this time. It's hard to find a company you could trust & keep on deck for future needs & emergencies.
