Trust the Pros for Drain Cleaning in Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky
Drain cleaning, or rooter services, are performed using a jetting process shooting a specific amount of pressurized water into the drain system to fully clean out the pipes. Apollo Home’s plumbing experts may use a camera in the drain as the water attempts to rush through it to identify the clog. This gives our plumbers more information to resolve the issue.
While the snaking tool in a drain clearing punctures the blockage, drain cleaning sweeps the entire drain, removing any leftover debris remaining after drain clearing. The two procedures are most effective when used sequentially if the situation calls for it.
Regular maintenance can prevent a clogged drain from ruining your day. The pros at Apollo Home offer an EPA-authorized product called Bio-Clean. It’s eco-friendly, safe and works by using naturally occurring microorganisms to eat away at the variety of substances adhering to the pipes in your plumbing and treatment systems. Although it sounds like something from a sci-fi film, Bio-Clean is actually easy to use and inexpensive.
For difficult drain blockages – tree roots penetrating pipes, for example – Apollo Home’s Cincinnati plumbers will usually perform a camera inspection, sending a small camera down into the drain to observe the problem area before determining a resolution plan. In a severe case such as this, the pipe (or a section of the pipe) may need to be replaced.
Whatever the cause, blocked drains are best handled by professionals. The hassle of attempting a repair the problem yourself can be an exercise in frustration and wasted time, and rarely results in a satisfactory or permanent fix. Call us today to schedule fast and professional rooter services for your home!
Signs You Need a Video Camera Drain Inspection
You might need a drain line inspection if:
- Your home is over 10 years old, and you have never had the sewer and drain lines inspected.
- You’re buying an older home, and you don’t want any nasty surprises.
- You’ve noticed problems with the sewer line recently, such as slow drains, at least one clogged drain, clogged toilets, or shower and tub backups.
Apollo’s Drain Cleaning Checklist
Apollo Home’s licensed and trained Cincinnati plumbers are ready to help 24/7 and will go through the following steps to perform fast and effective rooter services.
Apollo Home will diagnose the situation by interviewing you about any history related to the situation, which will help better identify the issue. We also check the drains and toilets in the vicinity to help determine if the clog is affecting just the one drain or multiple drains.
- Find the closest access to get to the drain (sometimes it’s better to add an access point)
- Determine the best solution (cable, jetting or repair) for unclogging your drain and discuss all the options/methods
- Attempt to clear the drain using the agreed-upon method—90% of the time the problem can be solved and nothing further needs to be done
- In cases where the first method doesn’t resolve the clogs, other solutions will be needed—some of those problems could include: heavy grease build-up, bellied or sagging drain lines, limited access to the drain line, poor venting, broken or damaged drain lines, and major root intrusion of the main (whole house/sewer) line
Problems with the main line will require a camera to be used to help:
- Verify the main line is completely clean
- Ensure there are no underlying problems with the main line pipe, such as corrosion, cracks, separations, and roots
- Locate blockages that can’t be cleared
- Eliminate recurrence of the problem
"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
