Drains Not Draining? Sewer Line Clog Solutions | Roto-Rooter

Drains Not Draining? Are you experiencing problems with the drains in your home? Showers and sinks draining slowly? This can be an indication that your sewer line is clogged.

In this video, we address some common causes of household sewer problems.

Use of modern plastic sewer pipes didn't become common until the late 1970's, which keeps troublesome tree roots out of sewer systems. However, older sewer systems made of clay, concrete, and even cast iron can become susceptible to root intrusion and cause of major blockages in your home's sewer system.

An experienced Roto-Rooter plumber can cut away tree roots from your sewer line to restore flow and thoroughly clean out the sewer pipe. Roto-Rooter will also give you options for keeping roots from clogging your sewer line again, including chemical treatments and more frequent cleanings.

If, however, your sewer line is damaged, roots will continue to get inside your sewer, and grow to restrict drainage. These aggressive tree roots can even break the pipe itself. Roto-Rooter can handle pipe spot repairs or even full sewer-line replacements, using the latest conventional and trenchless technology.

Schedule a service call and professional inspection of your sewer with a Roto-Rooter expert today. Call us at 1-800-GET-ROTO or visit us at

A TRUE DRAINAGE CONTRACTOR, CAN FIX ANY PROBLEM!
Don't Get Scammed!

What is French drain? This is a drainage system that collects subsurface water. Perforated pipe surrounded by gravel collects the water underground.

What is a catch basin? These are drains that collect the surface water. When it rains hard water comes across the top of the ground and drops into your catch basins.

What makes a good drainage system?
Combination of French drains and catch basins help keep your yard dry.

What is Geo fabric?
This is a filter fabric to help keep dirt out of your French drain. Especially the rock.

Is Geo fabric needed?
Not always. Depending on the soil type. For example in the sandy base, yes the gravel and pipe should be wrapped with Geo fabric. And in clay soil, its works but is VERY SLOW.

FIX LEAKING COPPER PIPE - PINHOLES - Plumbing Tips

How to fix leaks or pinholes in copper pipe by using rubber and a jubilee clip, compression fittings and solder fittings. We also talk about how leaks can occur. These fixes are for emergency repairs when waiting for a plumber to come out and fix the leak properly....but they'll get you by until then! Please follow me on Instagram here: or search for Plumberparts!

Today we're having a look at pin holes in copper pipe and the various ways of fixing them. I’ve made myself little jig up just down here. I got a little packer box. I've used some absolutely glorious new powerflow flux. We’ve created this small, little header tank. That runs down to a little lever valve, so we can control this little. Then we've got a 15mm to 22mm medusa, going onto a straight coupling, a loaded 22mm pipe, with a bung at the end. I'm gonna turn the water on for you now, so you know that it's actually real. So we're pretty much ready to drill a couple of very small holes that are gonna replicate the pin holes that you can get on copper pipe. We've got a really small bit here that's gonna be drilled into our pipe to recreate our pin holes. So look at that. I've got water coming out everywhere. Number one, when you turn it up, so what am I gonna do? First thing, try to find out where you can turn the water off. Now the water is off. We've got our little tank up here. We can easily turn the water back on. Before we look into that, let's figure out why is it that there's pin holes in this pipe in the first place. Usually you find that it's flux in the pipe work from when an apprentice, years ago, put too much flux in. It was from the days before water-soluble flux. It's basically got caught in the pipes somewhere and over the last 30 years, or so, it's basically bored its way through the pipe and you start getting these little pin holes. If that's the reason, you've got to start worrying about the pipe work in the rest of the house. You've got to start thinking I'll fix this pin hole now, but I might be back here in six months replacing the whole bit of pipe. First up, we're going to do the, oh my god, there's a pin hole. I need to get this fixed so I can pop back on and fix this properly. This is the quick fix. What you're gonna do is get yourself a little bit of rubber. It could be anything rubber. Anything you can just press over the hole. Then grab yourself a jubilee clip. You're going to basically pop this little bit of rubber over here and then you're gonna get your jubilee clip and you're gonna close your jubilee clip up, and then you're gonna do that up nice and tight. You'll notice, straight away, if you turn the water back on, we've still got our two other pin holes but the one we've done so far is now fixed temporarily. Now if we turn the water back on, you should see, no leaks. That's pin hole pipe repair number one done. Now let's have a quick look at pin hole pipe repair number two. The first thing we've got to do is turn

MY YARD FLOODED!!!

A couple weeks back we had some serious rain and my backyard flooded. All that water made it's way into my workshop and it was a pretty bad day. In this video I try to solve the problem by draining the stormwater down a PVC pipe to a soaking pit at the far corner of the yard. This should allow the water to pool but being 8 meters away from the shop it won't do any damage.
