Drain clogs are a common problem in metro Denver homes. A drain snake, also called an auger, is one way to clear the clog.
Homeowners can purchase a drain snake at a Denver area hardware store. The drain snake is a flexible rod with a u or v shaped blade at the end, which grabs onto the clog and pulls it out of the drain. These drain snakes are typically manual and have a limited reach, which means they can work on smaller clogs close to the drain, but not clogs that are more solid and further down the pipe.
Go Direct uses a specialized drain snake to power through your sewer lines, clearing clogs and other obstructions to get your drain flowing quickly. Go Direct also has a sewer camera they can run through your line, allowing technicians to see if there are other problems with your sewer line, including buildup, bellies, tree roots, and so on.
The drain snake can be inserted in branch lines (from sinks, showers, or bathtubs), in sewer cleanouts, or down the house’s main sewer line, where it typically leads out to the street and connects with the municipal sewer line. We might find the underlying cause of the backup is tree roots, scale, cracks, debris, slope issues, bellies, sewer channels, or other issues. We might also uncover misaligned, broken, punctured, off-grade, or corroded pipes, as well as grease and waste buildups, leaks, and obstructions.
