    Sacramento Residential Drain Cleaning – Rapid First Plumbing

    Every household will eventually face this dilemma: a shower, tub, or sink refusing to drain, a floor drain that’s jammed, or, in the worst-case scenario, an overflowing toilet. These issues are bound to happen at some point, signaling a likely clog in your drains or sewer line.

    These aren’t minor concerns; they pose potential health risks, may cause flooding, and can inflict significant damage on floors and carpets, as well as appliances and equipment.

    When you’re confronted with such challenges, it’s time to reach out to the seasoned professionals at Rapid First Plumbing in Sacramento. Our team ensures your drains and sewer lines are clear, letting water and waste flow freely.

    Reasons Behind Drain Clogs

    Ordinarily, water and waste seamlessly flow from your premises into the municipal sewer line or your septic system. However, over time, fats, oil, and grease (termed FOG in the plumbing world) and other foreign substances may accumulate, causing obstructed water flow and, in extreme cases, complete blockages.

    Roots are another frequent offender. Attracted to the moisture in your sewer line, they can infiltrate through any crevice or opening, making an obstruction even worse.

    A Word to the Wise About Over-the-Counter Drain Cleaners

    At the first sign of a clog, many instinctively reach for store-bought drain cleaners. While they might alleviate minor clogs temporarily, they’re ineffective against major blockages. But over-reliance on their harsh chemicals could even damage your pipes or, worse, cause personal injuries. Rather than running those risks, rely on the plumbing experts at Rapid First Plumbing. Our technicians can employ tools like augers or snakes to address the issue.

    For more tenacious obstructions, such as those created by intrusive tree roots, we might resort to hydrojetting.

    Hydrojetting for Drain Clearance

    Hydrojetting employs high-pressure water (reaching up to 4,000 psi) to dissolve blockages in your primary sewer line, including pesky tree roots. With a specialized hydrojet attachment, we can slice through these roots, reinstating the unobstructed flow of wastewater into the city’s sewer system or your septic setup.

    I just wanted to give you positive feedback on one of your employees who provided after-hours service at our home in Dixon. Jake was our technician. He was incredibly competent and professional, fixing the problem in very short order and with high quality craftsmanship. Additionally, he has some of the best customer relations skills of anyone I have met. He is friendly and very courteous. As I’m sure you know already, he is an incredible asset to your company and I wanted to give you confirmation from the customer’s perspective.

    Our toilet backed up and flooded the back of the house about a month after fly by night plumbing guaranteed all was well. It was well after hours and a nice thunderstorm was drenching the property. Rapid rooter was the only only company that would send someone out that night. We were lucky enough to have Charles 95 sent out to us. From the moment he arrived he made sure we understood that wherever the problem was he would fix it. He was correct. He was courteous and considerate throughout his entire visit. It took over and hour to find and fix the problem and at nine o’clock at night those are admirable traits. If we ever have any plumbing issues again we are going to give Charles a call.
