Kitchen Drains

Grease, soap, and food waste can take their toll, making your drains clog and run more slowly over time.

Main Sewer Lines

The clogging culprit here is usually water-seeking roots that can actually break through the line and clog the sewer drain.

Shower/Bathtub Drains

If you’re standing in water, your tub or shower trap and drain pipe are probably clogged with soap and hair, and a shower/bathtub drain repair or cleaning may be needed.

Bathroom Sink Drains

If you lose something down the drain, don’t run any more water. Call us and we should be able to retrieve the lost item without too much difficulty.

Toilet Drains

A clogged toilet is often caused by attempting to flush facial tissue, baby wipes, or other products that don’t disintegrate the way toilet paper does.

Floor Drains

Basements, laundry rooms, garages, patios, driveways, and even older bathrooms often have a drain to carry away water and prevent flooding, and these require regular cleaning.

How to Prevent a Clogged Drain

As with most plumbing emergencies, in most cases, a clogged drain is completely preventable. Some of the best tips for preventing clogged pipes include:

Ensure no food or hair enters your pipes by installing a screen over the drains. These can be bought at almost any hardware store.
Run hot water down your drain at least once per week to quickly clean it out.
Keep hard items like shells or bones out of your garbage disposal.
Ensure that things like grease never get rinsed down the drain.

If you experience any problems with your drain, the best course of action is to call Douglas Cooling & Heating. We can diagnose the problem quickly and make sure the repair is carried out properly.

Hydro-Jetting Services

Douglas Cooling & Heating provides hydro jetting and pipe clearing services near Birmingham, AL and the surrounding areas.
Hydro-Jetting Professionals

Hydro-jetting, also known as water jetting, pipe cleaning is by far the most economical, efficient, and environmentally friendly method of cleaning hard-to-reach clogs in your drain pipes and sewer pipes. This method involves a specialized hose that propels a high-pressure water stream directly into your home’s sewer line.

Grease, sludge, soap, and other materials coat the interior walls of the drain pipes and sewer line on a daily basis. Over time, the buildup significantly reduces the diameter of these pipes, which in turn compresses the flow of wastewater and waste materials, as well as raw sewage in the case of toilet drainage. Hydro jetting can open up your clogged drains and keep your home plumbing system flowing properly again.

What Are the Benefits of Hydro Jetting?

There are many reasons to choose hydro jetting in Birmingham. Whether you need routine drain cleaning or are dealing with an urgent plumbing emergency, hydro jetting can provide a fast and effective way to address the issue.

Some of the benefits of home water jetting include:

  • Increased power for better drain cleaning
  • Greater cost-effectiveness than traditional snaking/rooter cleaning
  • More sanitary drain declogging
  • Ideal for residential or commercial jobs
  • Improved eco-friendliness

Additionally, hydro jetting is ideal for both preventative maintenance and addressing current plumbing issues. The process involves shooting a powerful stream of water through the pipes to clear out blockages, grime, debris, and other unwanted buildups. This is not only highly effective at clearing pipes, it is also completely safe and non-damaging to your plumbing system.
