Chicago Sewer Cleaning & Repair
Restoring Your Chicago Plumbing Pipes
Since 1993, John Baethke & Son Plumbing has been providing expert Chicago sewer cleaning & repair services. Like any pipes in your plumbing system, sewer pipes can get clogged up over time by leaves, roots, grease, mineral deposits and other build-up. While other Chicago plumbing services use traditional methods for cleaning sewers, we have developed an efficient, thorough system that improves sewage flow while also restoring sewer pipes to their original diameter.
Problems with Regular Cleaning Methods
Most plumbers use either regular rodding or hydrojetting for cleaning your sewer. While both techniques have merits, there are limitations as well. Many Chicago plumbing companies that use rodding simply poke a hole so the water will drain. However, this hole is significantly smaller than the sewer’s actual width, and will likely clog up again soon. Hydrojetting, which uses highly pressurized water to blast away debris, is effective for certain applications such as roots and grease but is often only a temporary solution for other debris.
A New Way to Clean Sewers
Owner and plumber John Baethke has developed a unique “progressive rodding” technique for through and long-lasting sewer cleaning. After opening an initial hole so water can drain, our licensed plumbing technicians then re-rod with progressively larger attachments until we’re using the largest one possible for your pipe. When our job is done, a 6-inch sewer line will actually have a 6-inch opening for maximum flow.
Thorough Service & Inspection
In addition to sewer cleaning, we will also repair a variety of problems, such as:
- Broken, cracked, collapsed or otherwise damaged pipes
- Leaking pipe joints
- “Bellied” or sunk pipe sections
- Invasive roots
After cleaning or repairing your pipes, we will conduct a live video inspection, proving to you that the sewer line is clean while allowing us to assess its overall condition. These videos are posted on our YouTube channel for later reference and comparison.
