Rush Plumbing of Seattle is here for you when you need drain cleaning, drain repair or new drain installations in your home or commercial building.

Draining Cleaning Equipment
We own and operate a wide range of plumbing equipment for any size job. This includes small, hand-operated snakes that fit the smallest pipes, cable
drain cleaning machines or "drain snakes" for lager drains and sewers, and massive drain machines capable of cleaning large sewer mains.
Customers often ask us how it all works! These snakes and machines clean a drain or sewer by rotating a flexible cable made of piano wire through the pipe.
Attachments on the end of the cable scrape, bore, cut, and retrieve the blockage in the pipe. Each type of clog requires the right size cable and cutting head.
Not just anyone can use these machines to their full drain cleaning potential, either: it takes experienced, qualified technicians and Rush Plumbing has them.

Drain cleaning is a dirty job but it should never leave a mess behind in your home or business. When we leave your home or building, it looks as though
we were never there. For example, our plumbers use floor mats and booties to protect your floors. With years of experience, our experts know how to quickly
clear blockages and have your drains running free in the quickest, cleanest manner possible. Nothing is more important than leaving your home as we found

Sewer Drain Repair, Drain Cleaning, and Installation
Some of the larger projects we take on at Rush Plumbing include sewer repair, sewer line cleaning, and sewer installation. Rush Plumbing's experienced
professionals know all the requirements related to piping, as well as what kind of permits you need to perform the sewer repair. We use the latest pipeline
video inspection tools to assess damage caused by roots and other hazards. This non-destructive method allows us to identify the exact location of the
problem and fix it efficiently, with minimal digging.
How Do I Know I Need Sewer Drain Repair?
If your sewer is backed up or leaking, it must be repaired. Depending on the condition of your sewer pipe, only a section of the sewer may need to be replaced.
To determine if you need to replace a section of sewer pipe or the entire sewer pipe, we run a video inspection to assess the condition of your sewer.
On top of the expense, this is probably one of the most unpleasant plumbing challenges you will ever encounter. Because it is an extremely complicated repair
job compared to something like a faucet or pipe repair, you need qualified technicians who know what they are doing.
Video Drain Inspection
To know how and where to repair a sewer correctly, it must undergo a video inspection. Video drain inspection can tell if you have root intrusion, separated pipes,
offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe, among other things. To do this, we insert a small video camera into the sewer pipe, which sends live video of the pipe's
condition or the blockage back to us. Our video inspection equipment also has locators that give us the location and depth of the sewer line damage. This also
often allows for spot repairs rather than larger, more intrusive efforts.
Common Sewer Problems
Sewer lines generally deteriorate and sustain damage over time. A major cause of damage to these older sewer lines is from roots. One tiny crack in the
sewer line can give a nearby root system enough of an opening to take hold and eventually block or destroy the pipe. You can clean your sewer pipes to
remove roots but is usually a temporary solution, especially for older systems where it can actually destroy them. In these cases, we would advise replacing
the sewer using materials such as plastic.
At Rush Plumbing, we offer end-to-end solutions for sewer inspection, repair, and installation. As always, we provide fast and dependable service, minimal
disruption to your home or commercial business, and honest pricing at a flat rate. There's no need to juggle and manage multiple plumbing repair providers,
because we can do it all. This includes pipe material recommendations and delivery, root removal, video inspection, spot sewer repair, sewer line cleaning,
as well as complete sewer installation. We even fix under-slab water leaks.
