Main Sewer Lines
If you think you may have a blockage, obstruction or damage to your home's main sewer line, John's can quickly diagnose the problem and offer a free estimate to clear the line.
Snaking the line
We'll start your sewer line service by running a flexible, metal device down the line. This device is called a 'snake.' It helps us feel for any damage in the line, and can dislodge most blockages. Most of the time, this process is enough to get the sewer line up and running.
If snaking the line uncovers any problems, we may use video inspection to get a closer look. This involves inserting a tiny camera in the sewer line and recording everything we see. The camera is on the end of a long cable, just like the snake, so we're able to run it down the line to find the problem. Learn more about video sewer inspection.
Locating the problem area
Once our video inspection camera has reached the blockage or damage in your line, we're able to pinpoint its approximate location and depth in the ground. That way, if we need to dig, we'll know right where to start.
Your free estimate
Video inspection allows us to provide you with a DVD or VHS cassette of your sewer, along with a free estimate for your repairs, if necessary. And, since you're dealing with a full-service specialist in sewers, we can do all the necessary excavation and repairs to get your sewer up and running.
Excavation and repair
Many sewer service companies will send you to the yellow pages as soon as they uncover a problem with your line. But as a full-service sewer specialist, John's can always provide an effective solution to your issue. If possible, we will suggest a discounted preventive maintenance program to keep the line running. If the problem is more serious, we can excavate and repair or replace the line for you.

If you're constantly reaching for the plunger to unplug a stubborn toilet, you may have more clogging your line than you're aware of. Often a quick cleaning with a toilet auger is the way to go.
Unclogging a toilet using a toilet auger
A toilet auger (or closet auger) snakes into your sewer line right through your toilet, reaching the area where blockages often form. Consistent plunging might work. However, you are likely just pushing the clog further down the line. By enlisting our help, you will ensure that you have eliminated the problem.
If you think your toilet may need more than a plunger, request a quote from us.
Video inspection (or closed circuit television inspection) is a very cost-effective method for diagnosing problems within a main sewer line. By looking inside the line, we're able to accurately identify and locate any blockages or damages. Our equipment is able to search up to 400 feet of line, working inside diameters as large as 10' and as small as 2'.
Digital record of inspection
When we use video inspection on a sewer line, we can produce a DVD or VHS cassette of the procedure. This allows you to see the problem for yourself, and it allows us to provide an accurate, free estimate for your repair.
In addition to keeping a DVD or video of the pipe inspection, you will also receive a video inspection report detailing potential problems, their severity and their exact location.
Locating potential problems
The video inspection equipment has a transmitter that sends a signal from the camera head to a locator used above ground. This allows us to determine where the line is going as well as to pinpoint the exact location and depth of a problem area.

Sink, Tubs and Laundry Drains
DON'T use the plunger on several occasions. You've poured caustic, costly chemicals down the drain. No matter what you try, the drain clogs again. It's time to call John's Sewer & Pipe Cleaning, Inc.
Drain cleaning solutions
The most common drain cleaning solutions are made from caustic chemicals such as potassium hydroxide, sodium hypochlorite (bleach), and sodium hydroxide (lye). These solutions are all dangerous to humans, and they have the potential to damage plumbing as well. If the solutions are strong enough to eat through a clog in your pipe, it is strong enough to cause skin or eye damage as well as compromise the condition of your pipe.
Common household plungers work by creating suction or pressure to dislodge clogs. These work well on small clogs, but can't remove larger blockages. Many times plungers just push the clog further down the line. Using a plunger may solve a short term problem, but it doesn't properly clear the line. Avoid a clogged kitchen sink during Thanksgiving dinner, by having the line cleared by a professional drain cleaner.
Best solutions - Snake the Line!
At John's, we use motorized snake machines to clear your line from the source of the clog all the way to the main sewer line. The machine will scrape the insides of the pipe to make sure it is 100% clear.

When it comes to drainage, it pays to be proactive. And with a roof drain, that's especially true. John's Sewer & Pipe Cleaning, Inc. is your partner in roof drain maintenance, offering scheduled cleanings to insure a properly working drain.
Flat roofs need to be inspected semi-annually and after any major storm. And their drains are notorious for collecting leaves and debris. If they become restricted or clogged, they can lead to a flooded roof. And a flooded roof means one thing: costly repairs.
John's Sewer & Pipe Cleaning, Inc. can help you decide how often your drain should be cleaned, and set up a regular schedule for our visits. Request a quote today.
Catch Basins and Storm Drains
A storm drain (or catch basin) helps to drain excess water from your driveway and street. In the process, it also collects trash and debris, keeping such pollutants out of the local water supply and environment. To ensure proper function and avoid flooding, storm drains must be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.
Catch Basin and Storm Drain Preventive Maintenance
In addition to offering emergency service, John's Sewer & Pipe Cleaning, Inc. is a leader in Preventive Maintenance Plans for Catch Basins and Storm Drains. We will keep track of your maintenance schedule for you and ensure that you have the dirt and debris removed from the basins before you have a problem.
