How to Unclog your pipes: An Interview with Brad Cibrario of Ace Drain and Sewer

By Brad Cibrario

Tell a little bit about Ace Drain and Sewer

Ace Drain and Sewer is partnered with Beno Plumbing creating a full service plumbing and drain cleaning company. If it's got water moving through it, we will find a way to fix it.

Can you explain some common causes of clogged drains?

For many years roots and grease were the primary cause of clogged drains. In recent years things like disposable wipes and high cotton ply toilet paper are taking over the top spot. Also, don't abuse the kitchen disposal.

What are a few methods used to deal with these problems?

Most common is the Drain Snake. There are many sizes and types for almost all applications. Another popular method is high pressure water jetting. This is most commonly used for Industrial service but does have some residential uses. The Sewer/ Drain Camera is also used almost daily.

How can one detect a clogged pipe?

Most of the time these things tend to sneak up on people but most common signs would be an odor or gurgling noises when water runs. Also, something that looks like sand appearing around a drain or if the area around the drain is wet are all signs of a possible problem.

Is there anything the Homeowner can do to prevent clogs in the house?

No one gets through life without a visit or two from me but, you can limit the visits by watching the amounts of solids in the drains. In the home, the kitchen disposal tends to get abused. Dumping the contents of the fridge in the sink in not a good idea.

What is the best way to contact your company?
