24/7 Drain Rooter Services

Drain Cleaning

Having a clogged drain can be a major inconvenience. At 24/7 Drain Rooter, we’re the experts in San Diego for clearing clogged drains quickly and effectively.

We offer a variety of drain cleaning methods to tackle any clog, from minor blockages to tough buildups. Snaking is a traditional approach, but for tougher clogs caused by heavy sludge, toilet paper, roots, grease, and we recommend hydro-jetting. Hydro-jetting blasts a high-pressure water stream through your pipes, thoroughly cleaning the sides and restoring your sewer line’s functionality. Imagine the difference between rinsing your car with a hose and using a power washer – that’s the power of hydro-jetting!

Worry about hydro-jetting damaging your pipes? It’s safe for any drain in your home with proper access, just like a pressure washer won’t harm your car unless there’s pre-existing damage.

Don’t let clogged drains disrupt your life. Contact 24/7 Drain Rooter in San Diego today! We’re the drain-cleaning experts you can trust.

Sewer Camera Inspection

Uncertain about the cause of your plumbing problems? A sewer camera inspection from 24/7 Drain Rooter in San Diego can shed light on the mystery.

We use a specialized camera to inspect the condition of your drains, allowing us to diagnose the problem accurately and recommend the best course of action. This can save you time and money in the long run.

For example, if we find a sag in the line (called a belly), hydro jetting might be a temporary fix. However, a replacement would be the long-term solution. We’ll present you with all the options and help you choose the one that best suits your family’s needs.

Drain Replacement & Installation

Even the most durable drains can’t last forever. Time, corrosion, accidental damage, and persistent tree roots can all take their toll.

At 24/7 Drain Rooter, we offer two main methods for drain replacement: traditional excavation and trenchless lining (cured-in-place pipe lining or pipe bursting). Traditional excavation involves digging up the pipe for repair, while trenchless lining uses a smaller access point and a new liner insertion, minimizing disruption to your property.

Our camera inspections help us diagnose the issue and recommend the most appropriate solution for your needs. We understand that drain problems can be stressful, so we’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure a fast, high-quality drain replacement or installation in San Diego.

Water Heater Repair & Installation

Tankless water heaters offer several advantages: endless hot water, similar or reduced gas usage, compact size, and the ability to be installed outdoors. However, they also come with some drawbacks: a higher initial cost, longer lead time for replacement parts, and the need for regular cleaning (every 6 months to a year).

One common question regarding tankless heaters is why there might be a delay in getting hot water at the faucet. The answer lies in the system itself. Tankless heaters work on-demand, meaning they heat water as you need it, unlike traditional tank heaters that have a pre-heated reservoir. To achieve instant hot water at the faucet, a recirculation pump can be installed.

This pump keeps hot water circulating in a loop back to the heater, ensuring it’s readily available. There are three main options for pump operation:

  • The first option is to run the pump continuously throughout the day.
  • Another option is to install a timer that activates the pump only during specific programmed hours.
  • Finally, an aquastat can be used to control the pump based on water temperature. The pump turns off when the water reaches a set temperature and restarts when it falls below a certain level.

Tank style water heaters

Tank style water heaters are the most widely used type of water heater. They feature a large, insulated tank that stores pre-heated water. These heaters are typically located in garages, basements, or utility closets.

While convenient, tank water heaters have some drawbacks:

  • Energy Efficiency: They constantly heat water, even when you’re not home, leading to higher energy consumption.
  • Space Requirements: Their large tanks require dedicated space for installation.

However, tank-style heaters offer some advantages:

  • Lower upfront cost: Installation is generally less expensive compared to tankless models.
  • Reliability: They are a proven technology with reliable operation.

Tank Style water heaters are a good choice for smaller households or those on a budget. However, if energy efficiency and space are top priorities, a tankless water heater might be a better option.

We specialize in residential, commercial, tankless water heater repair and replacement services throughout the entire San Diego area.

Water pressure and chlorine.

Water Pressure Regulators

Don’t Overlook Water Pressure: It’s the Lifeblood of Your Plumbing System

Many plumbers underestimate the importance of water pressure. But just like healthy blood pressure keeps your body functioning properly, optimal water pressure is crucial for your home’s plumbing system.

Too Much Pressure? Here’s the Trouble It Can Cause:

  • Annoying high-pitched noises throughout your pipes.
  • Pinhole leaks that can develop over time, leading to hidden water damage.
  • Toilets that constantly run or refill slowly due to malfunctioning components.
  • Dripping faucets that waste water and money.
  • Potential leaks in your water heater due to excessive strain.

The Dangers of Low Pressure

On the other hand, insufficient water pressure can also cause problems:

  • Struggles to take a shower or wash dishes effectively.

Finding the Goldilocks Zone: Ideal Water Pressure

For optimal performance, your home’s water pressure should ideally be between 55 and 75 psi (pounds per square inch). If you don’t have a pressure regulator, the pressure can spike to over 150 psi at night when water usage is low. This can put unnecessary stress on your plumbing system.

24/7 Drain Rooter Recommends:

We highly recommend having your water pressure checked by a qualified plumber. If it’s outside the recommended range, they can install a pressure regulator to ensure your plumbing system functions smoothly and efficiently.

Chlorine

While chlorine is essential for killing bacteria in our water supply, the amount used in municipal water treatment can be higher than what’s found in swimming pools.

Here’s why water filtration might be a good idea for your home:

  • Improved Taste and Odor: Chlorine can leave an unpleasant taste and odor in tap water. Filtration can significantly reduce these.
    Potential Health Benefits: While research on the long-term health effects of chlorine consumption is ongoing, some people prefer filtered water for perceived health benefits.
  • Protecting Your Pipes: There’s a common misconception that chlorine directly damages copper pipes. However, high chlorine levels combined with acidic water can accelerate pipe corrosion. While filtration won’t completely eliminate this risk, it can help by potentially reducing chlorine levels and raising the water’s pH (making it less acidic).

Key Takeaway:

Water filtration is a personal choice. It can improve the taste and odor of your drinking water and may offer some health benefits. While filtration won’t completely prevent pipe corrosion, it can be a helpful tool in some cases.

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • If you’re concerned about pipe corrosion, consult a qualified plumber to assess your specific situation.
  • There are different types of water filtration systems available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Researching different options can help you find the best fit for your needs.

Pipelining & Repiping

When it comes to repiping your home, 24/7 Drain Rooter offers two reliable options: standard copper and AquaPEX piping. Both materials have their advantages:

Standard Copper: A well-established and trusted choice, copper pipes offer excellent durability and heat resistance.

AquaPEX Piping: A modern alternative, AquaPEX is a type of PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) tubing. Here’s why AquaPEX might be a good option for your repiping project:

  • Fewer Leaks: AquaPEX is flexible, allowing for longer pipe runs with fewer connections. This reduces the number of potential leak points compared to traditional copper with multiple soldered joints.
  • Durability and Warranty: AquaPEX is known for its resistance to corrosion and freezing. Additionally, many manufacturers, including Uponor (a popular AquaPEX brand), offer a 25-year warranty on the piping material itself.

The Best Choice for You

The ideal repiping material for your home depends on various factors like budget, specific needs, and existing plumbing configuration. Our experienced plumbers at 24/7 Drain Rooter can assess your situation and recommend the best option for a long-lasting and reliable plumbing system.
