Average cost for having your main line jetted

Jetting is a high end service you may not even need. There are some cases where jetting is good to perform but most the time isn’t needed. Residential homes normally don’t need jetting if their line has been maintained. Most people that have their line jetted is because the company cleaning your line said you need it. Jetting should be used for frozen sewer lines and greasy lines. Even greasy lines once jetted can be maintained with cable snake cleaning. The average cost for jetting is double the price of cabling a sewer line and sometimes companies just say you need to jet so they can make more money. Unless your 100% certain you need to have you sewer line jetted you should always start cleaning your line with cable snake drain cleaning. 99% of sewer line get opened with snake cleaning. Jetting can cost anywhere from $200-$500 per hour. It’s a very expensive and extensive job.
Make sure you need jetting before hiring someone to jet.

Root Killing Secrets

The world likes to think that buying a chemical for under five dollars at the local store will magically take care of their root problem. Guess again. No matter the diameter of any root, chemicals don’t just make them vanish or wither away. Weather you have an older sewer line or newer sewer line roots will somehow make their way in.

Roots are attracted to water, so wherever water flows roots will somehow get their too. Plumbing companies are the only people that can properly remove roots from your sewer system. Being that Minnesota is a much colder state are sewer lines are below the frost line. Sewer lines are anywhere from seven feet to fifteen feet under the ground. In warmer states like California or Arizona the sewer lines are three feet down. The difference is tremendous when going to excavate. In Minnesota most plumbing companies have to use backhoes to excavate that far down. Digging with a backhoe you have to be extremely careful near water/gas and other unknown lines. In warmer states plumbing companies only have to hire people to dig down three to five feet. Digging by hand is not only easier but is cleaner as well. Hand digging is easier because backhoes can only dig so far down before they have to switch to hand digging. Once you reach other lines you can’t use the backhoe anymore. If your not familiar with what’s underneath the ground there are important lines and pipes that run though. Next time you have a safe chance to see down in a dug whole, take time and look in without falling in.
Removing roots from a sewer line needs to be professional done. Plumbing companies hire technicians that have years of experience from doing this kind of work day in and day out. Companies that try jetting roots out of a sewer line before cabling are just charging you more money without you knowing. Remember using blades to clean a sewer line is the first step. Call Hiawatha Plumbing today to set up a root cleaning service before you back up at that unwanted time.

Dual Flush Toilets Pros and Cons

Some countries make dual flush toilet mandatory. Dual toilets are also known as “Green” toilets. These toilets flush no more then 1.6 gallons, compared to the standard toilets that flush 3.5 gallons. Most dual toilets are designed to use gravity to remove waste through a large trapway. Older toilets use pressure siphoning. The larger trapways are to reduce the amount of toilet clogs. The cost of the dual flushing toilets start at $250 and can go up to about four times the price. Dual toilets have a very modern look to them so they can match with a variety of bathroom styles. These toilets can be purchased in one or two piece sets.
Some cons to the dual flush toilets is that there harder to install. Each model is different and requires a professional plumber. These toilets also may require more cleaning due to the lower volume per flush. The buttons on the top of the unit may be confusing at first cause there not marked well. In most cases the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. A dual flush toilet in the long run will save you money on your water bill.
