Sewer Snakes

Sewer snakes and Sewer Jetters

Are you having plumbing issues.  We have the solutions.  A Sewer Snake is what you probably need.

Sewer or Plummer snakes work great for tree roots and even bigger obstacles.

A plumber’s snake is a slender, bendable type of auger used to dislodge clogs in plumbing. The plumber’s snake is often reserved for difficult clogs that cannot be loosened with a plunger.

Plumber’s snakes have a coiled metal wire. The user turns a crank to rotate the helix as it moves through the pipe. If the clog is caused by a  shred able obstacle, such as tree roots, the auger might break it up enough to enable flow. A smaller obstruction might be snagged or corkscrewed by the auger, enabling the user to pull it away. As the auger turns it also brushes against the interior walls of the pipe, scraping off minerals and other deposits.

We carry the General brand of sewer snakes in 50 foot and the 100 foot varieties. 

Opening clogged drains calls for tough equipment. That’s why General manufactures sewer and drain cleaning equipment with the most durable components, from our Flexicore® wire rope center cables to our reinforced steel frames and drums.
