This drain cleaning in St. Petersburg, FL took some extra effort due to the amount of rust in the cast iron sewer line. Often times cast iron pipe will “scale” and the rust will flake off the pipe and fall into the bottom of the pipe. The blockage will prevent proper water flow and makes the drain cleaning more difficult. Here is what the pipe looked like through the camera:
Water was barely able to flow through this pipe, let alone any solid objects. Drain cleaning was a must! The next photo was after the drain cleaning was complete:
The highlighted areas show the amount of rust that was removed from the sewer line. No matter what kind of chemicals are poured down the drain or even the use of a cheap drain snake, will not remove this kind of debris from your sewer line. That is why it is necessary to call a drain cleaning professional.
