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.

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.

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 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!
