Looking for the Best Drain Cleaner? Call the Professionals Instead

As Philadelphia’s top drain cleaning company, we know that when it comes to blocked sewers and clogged drains, many home and business owners try to go it alone and solve the problem by themselves first. After all, you clogged the drain, so you should be able to unclog it just as easily, right?

Sadly, the problem is rarely that simple. A clogged drain is a bit like an iceberg: the part that you notice is just a small portion of the overall mess. And by the time the buildup of waste and grease in your sink is bad enough that you can visibly notice overflow, a few hours of drain cleaner you bought at the local hardware store just won’t cut it.

What We Do Differently

What sets Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning apart as the company that succeeds where the other guys fail is our full-spectrum approach to sewer and drain cleaning. We begin every job with a full inspection of the premises and lower a camera into the clogged drain at your Philadelphia home or business to get a full picture of what’s causing the problem.

To unclog a drain means using the right tools for the right job. If you have a buildup of grease in your pipes—maybe because you operate a restaurant and some tired cook has been pouring off cooking oil without knowing how disastrous it can be for your plumbing—a drain snake might be the right tool for the job. Whereas for a buildup of organic materials—human hair, dust and skin—from your shower the best drain cleaner for the job might be an industrial-strength solvent.

As you can see, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. And that’s why our skills in doing the tough drain and sewer cleaning jobs other plumbing companies can’t deal with come in handy. When you’ve been in the biz and providing a specialty service as long as we have, you learn to try every available method.

Sewer Cleaning

While many people try their hand at amateur drain cleaning hoping to avoid a visit from a local plumber, the same can’t be said for sewer cleaning.

If you have sewer problems, odds are you already know that. Foul gases coming from your sink, or worse, overflow from your toilet—clogged sewers very quickly make life unliveable without quick intervention. If you want to avoid these sorts of backup disasters, it’s essential you call the sewer cleaning experts at Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning. We’ll excavate and clean up your sewer more promptly and efficiently than the jack-of-all-trades general plumber you call for other stuff. After all, this one thing is what we do best!

Commercial Plumbing

Large-scale jobs require large-scale talents. When your business is suffering due to constant plumbing problems, call us and we’ll take care of it in a jiffy.

Quality Drain Cleaning Services

Drains remove waste and excess water from our home. After it leaves the sink, the drain releases it into the sewer system. If you drain is having issues, this water won’t leave your pipes—it might not even leave your sink! This can lead to a whole variety of problems ranging from minor inconveniences to complete disasters.

Professional drain cleaning services and regular maintenance can help to prevent drastic blockages from occurring.

Sometimes you might not even notice that your drains are clogged. After all, the water is going down the drain, isn’t it?

Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning invites you to look at your drain and ask yourself: is it draining quickly or slowly? Your kitchen or bathroom sink might be draining slowly. This is an easy warning sign to miss out on. Sometimes this indicator is overlooked because people have grown used to how slowly their kitchen sink drains.

However comfortable you are with your slow-draining sink, don’t fool yourself into thinking everything is fine. If your drain isn’t draining quickly it is a sign that your drains and pipes need to be inspected by the professionals at Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning.

A slow drain can be an indicator that your sink’s pipes are blocked. It could also mean that is an issue with drainage in the main sewer line.

Many problems can arise if a slow drain is left unchecked. These slow drains can promote the growth of mold and mildew if you’re not careful! They can even emit bad-smelling odors throughout your home.

If your kitchen sink is draining slowly give Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning a call!

Pipeline Video Inspection

Pipeline video inspection, or Sewer TV Inspection as it is sometimes called, is one of the latest innovations in professional drain cleaning. It is certainly advanced and state-of-the-art, but Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning make quick and easy work out of these innovative procedures.

We’ve been providing pipeline video inspections to homeowners throughout the Philadelphia area since we got our hands on this cutting-edge technology. It has allowed us to diagnose problems with razor-sharp accuracy. Gone are the days of guesswork and misdiagnosed plumbing issues.

Pipeline video inspection gives us an unrivalled knowledge of your home’s pipes and drains. We are able to approach every issue with an unrivalled certainty that has never before been possible. Thanks to these video inspections our expertise and precision is comparable to that of a surgeon.

When we’re able to identify the exact root of the problem, we won’t have to waste time trouble-shooting or second-guessing ourselves. We’ll be able to get to work right away!

Not only that, but these video inspections can be digitally recorded for further analysis, if needed. We can also use the recorded footage to make accurate before/after comparisons. You’ll literally be able to see the improvements!

Despite having been established for over 33 years, we’ve never stopped evolving. If there are innovations in the world of drain cleaning, you can count on us to know about them.
