I liked their technical competence. They know what they are doing.

Low-cost sewer line maintenance is a good option for preventing backups if you know you have root intrusion and are not selling your property. Pipe Spy can help you keep your line clear with annual maintenance.
Power snakes, the standard tool in the industry for drain clearing, are used to remove solid obstructions in the pipe, such as roots, food build up, and hair. The power snake’s rotating cable has different blade attachments to cut, loosen, and push material down stream to the sewer main, including tree roots. Hydrojetters are used to pressure wash the inside of the pipe. The jet of water scours long-term build up of paper, solid waste, and food grease and flushes the debris to the sanitary main.
These sewer line maintenance tools are most effective when they enter the sewer pipe line close to the problem area, so Pipe Spy first uses video inspection tools to identify the best spot for access to the blocked line.
The most common issues homeowners run into are a clogged sewer line, water back up of a drain or toilet, or a gurgling sound coming from the drains. Tree roots are the primary cause of sewer line clogs in older homes, with paper towels and thick toilet paper a common source of clogged sewer lines in newer homes.
If you find one of your sewer lines is clogged, it is important to shut the water off at the source or at the main if its a main line clog. Then call the experts at Pipe Spy to come out and inspect the sewer line to make sure it's just a clog and not a bigger issue.
