Sewer Cleaning Services

Your sewer line, which connects your house to the municipal sewer main, is built to last. In fact, with proper care and a bit of luck, your sewer line could last up to a century. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that you can just ignore it for 100 years and expect it to be just fine. Every once in a while, you’re going to need to have your sewer line cleaned if you expect it to continue working properly. That’s why Embrich Plumbing Co offers a full range of sewer cleaning services throughout Collinsville, IL. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our professional plumbers. We’ll make sure that your sewer line lasts as long as possible.

Your sewer system is designed to transfer waste from your home to the city sewer, and it does that job pretty well. The problem is that over time, waste tends to build up on the walls of the pipe. If it isn’t cleaned out every once in a while, that waste buildup can clog the line and cause all sorts of problems. You really don’t want sewage backing up into your home’s plumbing system. It contaminates pipes that are meant to handle fresh water only, which means you won’t be able to use any of your plumbing safely until the entire system is flushed out. This is why you should have your sewer system cleaned out on a regular basis.


There are a couple different methods of sewer cleaning that we use. Read on for a brief description of each:

  • Drain Snake/Cable Machine: A drain snake, also called a cable machine, is a long cable with an auger at the end. This cable travels down your sewer line until it meets a blockage, at which point your plumber can drill through it using the auger bit. Drain snaking is a very common method of cleaning out sewer lines.
  • Hydro Jetting: Hydro jetting involves using a long hose to blast water through the sewer line. The water pressure is high enough to completely clean out the line, removing any and all waste that may be stuck to the walls of the pipe. Hydro jetting not only gets rid of clogs, but makes it less likely for further clogs to show up in the future.


You should have your sewer line cleaned out at least once every year or two. That should be enough to prevent any serious clogs or other problems from forming in your sewer line, allowing you to use it without concern. Embrich Plumbing Co provides comprehensive sewer cleaning services throughout Collinsville, IL. If you haven’t had your sewer cleaned out for a number of years, or you have reason to believe that your sewer line is experiencing problems, call us today. We’ll make sure that no matter what state your sewer system is in, it is restored to proper function.
