What is a Plumbing Cleanout?

December 9, 2016

A plumbing cleanout (drain cleanout / sewer cleanout) provides a point of access to your home sewer systems where we can insert a drain cleaning machine to clear clogs or debris, or a camera to inspect the system.


Sewer lines are frequently subject to clogs or slow draining due to build-up in the pipe.  While build-up is not completely avoidable, there are things which contribute to it.  The worse offender is putting grease down the disposer with hot water. 


When this occurs, the hot grease and water cool on their way toward the city’s sewer line.  When grease cools, it sticks to the pipe and creates a build-up.  Once any build-up exists, other waste will move slower or get caught on the build-up.  Over time, grease build-up will eventually cause a clog or slow draining pipes and must be cleaned out.


Clear Drain Plumbing provides clogged sewer pipe cleaning for every type of home, and we’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week for emergencies (*depending on schedule).
