Minneapolis plumbers + Tree Root Intrusion

Minneapolis Plumbing company also known as Hiawatha Plumbing offers full drain cleaning services. Below is a picture of that tree roots look like inside your sewer line. Most residential properties have root intrusion but that doesn’t mean you need to excavate. If a company convinces you to dig always get a 2nd opinion.

Tree root intrusion only gets worse and worse as drain lines get older. Drain lines are no different than humans we age. The only way to get rid of 100% of tree root is by excavation but that’s not always needed or an affordable solution. Just cause one company says your sewer line needs to be excavated, another company might say you have years before you need to perform that work. Having your main sewer line in Minneapolis cleaned annually will also slow down root growth. Cleaning your sewer drain line is the number #1 solution to cleaning roots. If you neglect cleaning tree roots your plumbing drain lines will separate and fall apart. Once the sewer line shifts to much that debris can’t flow to the city sewer line you will have no choice but to excavate.
Hiawatha Plumbing has been servicing drain lines in Minneapolis since 1947. We understand that lines get used and need to be maintained to function properly. Our prices are affordable for everyone’s budget being less then 1/3 the prices of big names companies around Minneapolis – St. Paul area.

Outside Drain Covers for access main line

Clean-outs that are located outside in landscapes or yards are IMPORTANT to have and not cover up. Cleaning out sewer lines from outside is almost always a huge plus, unless you are experiencing an inside main line clog. Cleaning a sewer line from outside keeps the mess their instead of in your home. We suggest if you have an exterior drain clean-out to perform maintenance on that drain before winter. Sewer lines that get routine maintenance last longer then drain lines that get neglected. Sewer Drain lines that are neglected will eventually have more issues then ones that are kept up. Neglected lines will have excavation needs sooner then they should. Maintain your sewer line annually each year before winter. You’ll be happy you do.
If you forget to maintain your sewer line before winter chances are that the fitting will freeze shut. If not able to open then the cleaning will take place inside. Don’t try and open from outside unless you know what your doing. By not having the experience you could move the line further down the line and be forced to dig and re-due the pipe.

Give Hiawatha Plumbing a chance next time your sewer line backs up in your home or commercial building.

Is it smart to camera inspect your sewer line?

Every so often it’s a good idea to have a professional company take a peek inside your sewer line. Years and years and build up accumulate in your sewer line and harden to the walls of your sewer pipe. Each year it’s recommended to clean out your sewer line with a professional machine (not the machines you can just rent). Having a professional work on a cavity is the same as having a plumbing or drain cleaner work on your drain. Your sewer line and your main exit feed for all debris from your house to the city main. If you sewer has any dips, back pitches and separations that will prevent debris from getting to the main city tap.
Having your main sewer line looked at professionally with a camera will tell you the entire story. Cleaning is step #1 but putting a camera in and seeing the entire picture is step #2. By cleaning your main sewer line once a year you may prevent having to go to step #3 and #4 which include excavation.

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.

Average cost to clean your main sewer line

Calls come in everyday to clean clogged main sewer drains. First off, know that each and every sewer line is different. Never can two sewer lines be identical. The average cost of cleaning a main sewer line is normally under $140. There are a couple different ways to clean a main sewer line and I think it’s wise to talk briefly about them. If a house or commercial building has a proper floor main sewer line clean-out near the front of their foundation you could get a sewer line cleaned for around $130 for under 90 feet. Companies do charge more per foot after 90 feet. If one can only clean a sewer line through a stack pipe it could take a little longer. Note: that some stacks have smaller opening to clean a sewer line. If a stack line has a smaller opening we always suggest in the future to increase the size. getting a bigger blade through ones sewer line will be more beneficial to them. For the most part sewer lines never have to be jetted. If a company offers to jet your main sewer line before cleaning it with blades be hesitant to way they want to proceed that way. 95% of sewer lines can be cleaned with blades. For ones that don’t know what jetting is, it’s high pressure water that cleans ones line. We suggest getting lines cleaned by blades before water ever is even introduced. Number one, jetting costs more and number two jetting again isn’t always needed. If one knows that their line needs a jetter you should go ahead an proceed.
Most the time the average sewer line costs under $150 to clean. We suggest to clean and maintain ones sewer line every 12 months. Also, after receiving a main sewer line cleaning think about cleaning your floor drain at the same time. Debris is always left in there and will back up your drain soon after and if not will harden in your line. By cleaning sewer line every 12 months you will get the best results from roots and all other sorts of debris from growing and spreading worse in ones main sewer line.
If you must go about cleaning your sewer line through your toilet the price is higher for pulling/resetting your toilet. Toilet lines are the LAST WAY we want to clean your main sewer line. Cleaning a sewer line is all about the size of the blade we can get through the line
Call Hiawatha Plumbing for any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
