POWER RODDING

Power rodding services

AB and Sons Plumbing offers a variety of solutions to many different problems. If root intrusion is causing a backup, the possible solutions will range from rodding (partially opening up of the sewer line to restore some drainage) to root cutting (cutting off the roots from the full diameter of the pipes).

In both cases, the roots will eventually grow back. To eliminate this, the sewer line would need to be replaced. Each option has a different cost with different long-term effects.

Which option is best?

There may be several spots where there are partial obstructions. The closest one maybe open up only to have another blockage in the near future. It is always best to have the entire service line cleaned yearly to the city’s sewer main.

Some contractors do not like to go all the way to the city main in fear of getting their rodder or cutter stuck. AB and Sons Plumbing technicians are experienced and are able to rod, clean and camera the entire sewer to the city main.

Service line repairs and replacements

Occasionally, the blockage cannot be cleared by rodding or root cutting and the service line must be replaced. If the service line is in bad shape, then replacement may be necessary.

These types of repairs need a permit from the village. AB and Sons Plumbing is licensed, bonded, and insured, and has no problems obtaining permits. Call us at (224) 239-6719 to request your FREE estimate.
