Drain Cleaning in Reading

25 Drain_Banner

In business since 1938, Essig, Inc. has had plenty of time to perfect the art of drain cleaning. Because of our long history, we completely understand just how troublesome they are for homeowners, and we want to help!

Unfortunately, drain clogs can be caused by a number of different things, whether it’s years of dirt build up or the infiltration of tree roots. Well, no matter the cause, or how bad the clog may seem, our experts here at Essig can handle it with ease.

Drain Snaking/Cabling

If you’ve tried every home remedy in the book, and plunged your drains so much you never want to look at a plunger again, then it’s time to call in the Essig drain snake team.

Here’s what we’ll do:

  1. We will first insert our top-of-the-line plumber’s snake into the clogged drain. Once it’s in, it will “corkscrew” through the blockage with a powerful, rotating motion.
  2. Then, the back of the snake will break up the debris and scrape it off of the pipe’s interior. After it gets broken up, the accumulated matter will be able to flow freely down the drain.


Video Camera Inspection

Once the drains have been snaked, we always like to perform a video camera inspection to see what, if anything, is left down there. This inspection allows our team of plumbers to locate cracks, separations, collapses, or other blockages that couple be stopping up your drains.

With this inspection, no guess work is needed so it saves you time, and money, during the drain cleaning process.

Water Jetting

If we find a particularly troublesome clog during our camera inspection, we will bust out the water jets.

Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Our state-of-the-art water jets work by sending high-pressurized water quickly into your pipes to wipe away all that’s blocking your drain. They are able to cut through any obstruction and are guaranteed to restore your pipes to their original condition.
  2. The experts at Essig know that no two drains are alike, and so they will always choose the appropriate water pressure for your specific piping. That way, no damage is down to your drain system.


For any and all drain cleaning needs, don’t hesitate to call Essig today!
