When it comes to Your Sewer & Drain Lines, What Goes Down Should Stay Down.

There's probably no more unwelcome or unpleasant home mishap than a blocked sewer or drain. And, depending on the severity of the problem, it could prove to be one or your more costly plumbing repairs. In fact, if you're experiencing a blocked sewer or drain right now, call us before the problem becomes any worse....and remember, we offer 24/7 emergency service, as well. Call 860-709-84273.

If, on the other hand, things are nice and quiet drain wise, then today's a great day to start practicing preventive drain care maintenance, including with these helpful and effective measures:

  • Don't flush any man-made objects except toilet paper down your toilet...it's the only product that's designed to bio-degrade. And that goes for the so-called "flushable baby wipes", too...you wouldn't believe how many times they're responsible for blocked toilets.
  • Don't pour grease or any cooking oils down your drains.
  • Run your garbage disposal from time to time with ice cubes and egg shells...they'll help keep the blades sharp while keeping the drain clear.
  • Run cold water in your garbage disposal and kitchen sink after each use. Hot water, by comparison, can cause debris to harden and adhere to the pipe walls.
  • Clean your sink and shower stoppers regularly. Same goes for aerators.
  • Proactively treat your drains with a solution of Endure mixed with water. Endure is a natural bacteria that is equally effective at clearing and preventing clogged sewers and drains. Plus, it causes no harm to your plumbing or the environment, unlike the chemical drain cleaners found in supermarkets and other retail stores. If you'd like a supply of Endure to keep on hand, contact CT Mechanical Solutions as we carry it, but retail stores do not.

Here's something to consider before you call us to resolve your current blocked drain problem: have you ever entrusted such a job to a plumber or drain cleaner who, after giving it their best effort, finally admitted it was more than they could handle? Lots of our customers have experienced that.

Too bad they didn't call us first, because right from the start they would have discovered that we are one of the most experienced, fully-equipped, and resourceful drain cleaning companies in Connecticut. That means you'll get just one bill - not multiples - to get the problems fixed. And for our many loyal sewer and drain customers, that's huge!

Along with the standard normal sewer and drain clearing equipment you'd expect us to bring along, we have advanced capabilities that very few other CT companies possess. Here are two we'll think you'll find especially relevant and reassuring:

  • In-line video drain camera so we can determine the exact location, nature, and extent of the problem. We don't need to use the camera on every job, but it's an invaluable tool to have at our disposal, just in case. Our video drain equipment also includes a recorder and playback unit so we can illustrate the problem to you both on video playback and by showing you and printing out still images.
  • High-pressure water jetter that blasts water through especially stubborn sewer or drain line blockages. Our jetters even come with rotating, cutting heads that cut through built-up tree and shrub roots while the water continues to push the internal debris along through the pipe.
We also have the capability to locate underground sewer blockages, along with the advanced skill and equipment to repair or replace any sewer or drain line without having to excavate your lawn, shrubs, driveway, etc. Click here to learn more about our drain repair and replacement services, and you'll have one more reason to choose CT Mechanical Solutions the next time a sewer or drain line acts up.
