Commercial Restaurant Floor Drain

Commercial floor drains tend to back up often with all the grease and sludge.

Restaurants tend to have several drains cleaned out on a monthly or b-monthly basis. Toilet and urinals lies also tend to get plugged up.

If you own or manage a commercial property be sure to keep up on your drain cleaning. Drains that you have cleaned out at night or on the weekend will cost you more so plan smart. Emergency service is when plumbing companies make lots of money. We call it “Emergency Dollars”. Have your drain pipes cleaned on maintenance and don’t wait for a clogged drain.

Call Hiawatha Plumbing today for all your plumbing & drain cleaning.

We look forward to working with you!

Why do we have Vents?

We see vents all over for plumbing, pools, houses, cars, and much more. Pipes need to be vented properly so that drains will drain properly. Also, vents let gases that form within your home to exit the property so you don’t get nasty odors. Smells are hard to locate and get rid. If your experiencing a sewage, rotten eggs or any smell call Hiawatha Plumbing today.
If you smell gas call your local gas company or 911

Camera Sewer Line

Scoping your sewer line will tell you an entire story. Twenty years ago we never had video camera capabilities.


Putting a camera down your sewer line once cleaned will show us what’s going on and why you clog up. We always suggest cleaning your drain pipe with a professional company before we camera. Cleaning your own sewer line doesn’t count. The rented machines are not like the professional machines. A homeowner can’t clean a sewer line like an experience technician who does this work for a living day in and day out. Our company does drain cleaning and scoping a picture of your pipe. Before cameras we had to guess where to dig. Most the time we pin pointed the spot within three feet. Now a days we can pin point the exact first spot to dig with the technology of the camera and locator. Make sure you trust the company you hire before making any dramatic decision.
Call Hiawatha Plumbing for any plumbing drain sewer cleaning needs. Let us help you clean your line and camera it. Were the trusted company since 1947.

Severe Thunderstorms = Heavy Rains

Make sure after every heavy rain storm you check your basement floor making sure it’s dry. Heavy rains can cause backed up sewer line and a tremendous mess. Make sure your sump pump is running and pumping water if you have one in your home. Don’t assume your plumbing systems is just working. Things break down all the time in life when you least expect it to. Debris from a storm that is thrown into the sewer and large amounts of water can also cause major back-ups and flooding in your home.

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.
