We Offer Residential & Commercial Drain Cleaning Throughout San Diego

When water or waste backs up in your home or business through a clogged drain, it can be more than an inconvenience — it can be a nightmare! But no matter what time your issue arises, day or night, Steele Plumbing is here to help. We specialize in drain cleaning and offer multiple drain cleaning options designed to address clogs and blockages of all types.

  • Snaking — For minor to medium-sized clogs and blockages, drain snaking can be a fast and effective fix. We simply use long and flexible metal cables to locate the blockage, dislodge it, and either destroy it so it can freely pass through the pipe or pull it back up through the drain. Learn more about drain snaking and when it’s an effective option here.
  • Hydro Jetting — For those tougher blockages, like grease and sludge buildup in a kitchen sink, hydro jetting may be the best option. This drain cleaning procedure involves using the power of pressurized water to blast through the blockage and clean the inside of the drain. But don’t worry, this chemical-free clog eliminating process is environmentally-friendly and won’t hurt your pipes — learn more here.

Which Is Better For Unclogging Drains — Snaking Or Hydro Jetting?

Both drain cleaning options serve a purpose, but depending on your situation, one may be a better option than another. Snaking is great for minor blockages that are more of a one-time thing (like when someone accidentally flushes something they shouldn’t have), while hydro jetting is a better option for removing tough buildup that lines the drain pipes, like grease. Grease and sludge can cause blockages, much like blockages in arteries, and snaking the drain will only leave a small opening in the pipe, while hydro jetting will actually blast it out and clean those pipe walls.

Once we do, we’ll make recommendations for repairs and go through all of your options with you, so you can make an informed decision that meets the needs of your home or business and budget.
