SCOUR JET SERVICES
Stout Plumbing provides Scour Jet services. Many of us don’t realize just how much abuse our drains and sewer lines take. Every day your plumbing system delivers and disposes of many gallons of water and waste. Over time, your drains and sewer lines can become clogged or blocked by grease, food and other waste. When this happens, your sinks, showers, toilets and other appliances and fixtures will stop draining properly. This can be a huge problem for many homeowners. When that happens, make sure that you call the expert plumbers at Stout Plumbing.
What Is Scour Jet Technology?
When your sewer system or drains get clogged there are a number of things that you can do to release that clog. You can use chemicals to dissolve it; you can use a metal snake to pull it out. The Scour Jet is another way to remove clogs from your drains and sewer lines. It produces a high pressure stream of water that blasts away blockages from paper, food, grease, hair and fat. It leaves your drains sparkling clean.
The Scour Jet is a long flexible pipe that our plumbers run into the plumbing system of your home. It removes all kinds of debris from the pipes. It’s safe for all different types of plumbing!
Common Drain Clogs
Here at Stout Plumbing, we’ve responded to countless calls for drain cleaning and repair service. Our professional plumbers have seen a lot of different types of drain clogs. Here are a few of the most common.
By far, the most common cause of a drain, water or sewer line clog are tree roots. Over time, your tree’s roots will look for water by wedging themselves into your pipes through the joints.
Grease and fat
A common by–product of cooking is fat and grease. When it gets washed down your kitchen sink it is normally still warm and in liquid form. As it gets into your drains and sewer system it cools and hardens. This can form a sticky barrier that other waste and debris stick to.
Hair and soap scum
These types of clogs normally come from your shower, bathroom sink and clothes washing machine. If you have hard water, soap scum is especially troublesome.
If you have hard water, mineral deposits can start to build up inside your drains and sewer pipes.
These are just a few of the many different types of clogs that can start to form in your drains. If you suspect that your drains need Scour Jet cleaning, call Stout Plumbing today.
