Drain Maintenance Solutions

We offer a wide range of drain maintenance solutions that will ensure that your sinks and drains remain free-flowing - and free of clogs.


●        Drain Vision™

Drain Vision provides excellent insight into the current condition and function of the sewer lines. The goal of the Drain Vision inspection is to look for unusually large amounts of debris or grease as well as any other obstructions or flow issues. In this process, video cameras are fed into the lines from the house and snaked through to the main sewer line in the street, helping to identify your sewer problems quickly and efficiently. This procedure is currently the most thorough, straightforward, and time-efficient way to give you an accurate account of your sewer line and whether repair or replacement is necessary.


●        Aqua Bright Pipe Rejuvenation™

Wouldn't it be great if your plumbing system was as clean as the day it was installed...or cleaner? Clogged drains are a big hassle. Dirt and sludge can build up in your pipes, creating a grotesque and impassable barrier keeping waste from leaving your home. Your pipes can be like new again, and we don’t have to tear your home apart to do it. The Aqua Bright Pipe Rejuvenation™ is our technologically advanced pipe scrubbing system that breaks up, eliminates, and removes the sludge, dirt, grime, and filth that has attached itself to your pipes over the years.


●        RootX®

Annual RootX treatments kill pipeline roots to keep your system root free and avoid costly sewer and septic tank repairs. RootX® makes it easy for your plumbing professional to kill roots in residential sewer lines, storm pipes and septic systems. Root intrusion may be the single most destructive element facing your home’s wastewater collection system, sewer or septic system. Left untreated, roots will spread throughout the pipe. Material passing down the drain gets trapped in the roots, restricting the flow or even causing a complete blockage, which could cost thousands to repair or replace. We recommend annual RootX® treatments to keep your system root free and avoid costly sewer and septic tank repairs.


The patented RootX® formula foams on contact with water to reach the top of the pipe where 90% of the roots are. Degreasing agents strip away grime so the RootX® herbicide can penetrate the roots, killing them on contact. RootX® sticks to the pipe walls, preventing regrowth for up to a year. Dead roots decay over time, restoring pipes to their full capacity.


RootX® kills roots using the aquatic herbicide Dichlobenil. It’s non-caustic, non-fumigating and non-systemic, and it contains no diquat dibromide, copper sulfate or metam sodium. RootX® will not harm pipes, septic systems or above-ground vegetation.


●        BioSmart™

A natural biological drain line, septic, and grease trap maintainer, BioSmart™ is available in liquid or powder formulations and performs without harmful chemicals or additives. BioSmart™ will keep systems clean and free-flowing by unleashing naturally occurring bacteria that thrive on the grease, oil, and stubborn organics found in every wastewater system.


Daily use of household and commercial strength chemicals and detergents destroys the natural population of friendly bacteria that every wastewater system relies on to reduce oily and organic components. BioSmart™ safely, effectively, and economically eliminates the resulting organic buildup by replenishing friendly bacteria in the wastewater environment, eliminating the constant greasy slime buildup and odorous residue.
