A random toilet clog or a stopped up kitchen sink is typically nothing to lose sleep over, but if it’s starting to become a recurring part of your daily life, you have a real problem on your hands. Why not let the experienced experts at Radiant Plumbing take care of it for you. Drains are a modern marvel when they are working correctly, but when they aren’t—what a headache! You probably never think about it, but your home’s drainage system is an integral part of your day to day life. Once it starts to back up, it can sure ruin your day quick. The good news is that with modern piping and an ace plumber on your side, you could have a lifetime of clear drains. But life being what it is, you might not be so lucky. When your drains start slowing down, don’t hesitate, contact us immediately. One of our highly trained and licensed plumbers will arrive promptly with an answer to all of your questions and a solution for your clogged drainage and/or sewage lines.


Roots in The Sewer Line? Objects in The Drain? We Fix All Types of Clogs!

Over time, there are a few things that can go wrong even with the best of drainage systems. Trees can grow around your drain line, and the roots can lift, push, squeeze, and pull your drain line, causing a whole mess of problems. Central, South, and North East Austin all suffer from expansive soil. As rains come, or don’t, the dirt in your yard is heaving up and down on a regular basis. This can cause the intended fall that the pipe should have (we call it grade) to flatten out or even belly, leading almost inevitably to some sort of clog. That same expansive soil will also be moving your foundation. And as if that weren’t bad enough, a few tons of concrete heaving up and down on your pipes certainly isn’t doing them any favors. But never fear, our plumbing technicians have years of experience diagnosing and repairing all types of clogs, blockages and other piping problems.


We Clean Out All Kinds of Pipes, Sewers and Drains in Austin, TX and Surrounding Areas

Old pipes are one of the biggest culprits behind most drain and sewer problems. Cast iron pipes, once the industry standard (and bane to plumbers’ bad backs) were formerly used in almost all indoor drain piping. Although cast iron pipes aren’t a guarantee that your drainage system is a liability, in a vast majority of direct burial applications, corrosion seems to get the better of it. First you’ll notice a little leak, then some pronounced roots and before too long, you’ve got one big clogged mess on your hands!

There are a few other “special” things that we run into across the Austin region. If you are in one of the older downtown homes, you may have clay, orangeburg, or concrete pipe. If we run into one of these special products, the City of Austin requires us to not attempt to repair it, but to replace it with a modern system complete with all required cleanouts. No matter what type of pipes you have in the ground, Radiant Plumbing knows how to clear it, fix it, and if necessary, replace it.


Drain Snaking

When that plunger/chemical combo just isn’t cutting it anymore, it’s time to call on us—your proven drain snake service team to get your clogged drain moving again.

  • Here’s how it works: our state-of-art drain snake enters the clogged drain with a powerful, rotating motion. This allows the snake to “corkscrew” through the clog itself.
  • The back end of the snake finishes the job, breaking up the substance, scraping accumulated matter off the pipe interior and allowing it to pass completely through the drain.


Video Camera Inspection

Ever peer down into your clogged drain wondering what the hold-up is? Well with video camera inspections, you can wonder no more. Get eyes on the source of your drain woes and let our experts diagnose exactly what is clogging your drain.

  • During a video inspection, a special camera is introduced into the drain. This way, our drain cleaning experts can detect cracks, joints, separations, collapses or debris that may be the source of your clog.
  • We use only the latest in drain camera technology so our drain cleaning experts can pinpoint exactly where your clog is lurking.
  • It is always a good idea to have a professional conduct a video camera inspection on your drain line before any serious work is done—it could save you money in the long run.


Water Jetting

Let us unclog your drain with the power of hyper-pressurized water! A water jetting tool is a staple of the drain cleaning industry, using an extremely high-pressure jet of water to cut through whatever substance is clogging your drain.

  • Our state-of-the-art water jets can cut through any obstruction within your drain line. Our drain cleaning experts always choose the appropriate water pressure for your individual piping, taking into account the size and material of the pipes so no damage is done to your drain system.
  • Drainpipes inevitably become clogged over time. It’s a fact of life—grease, hair, soap scum, sediment, sludge, and roots can inhibit the proper function your home’s draining system and cause you a massive headache in the process.
  • Never fear though, our proven water jetting services will get your drainage system flowing free and clear once and for all.
