Drain cleaning a clogged drain is the unsung hero we all need sometimes. We all want for the waste that is supposed to flush and drain to go far away. Unfortunately, many of the things that we put down our drain, in fact, are not supposed to go into our sewer system.

Clogged Drain Physics
Water always flows best downhill. If there is a belly in your line, that means there is a spot where the water needs to go uphill. This area may not drain completely causing puddle like areas in the line.
Drain Cleaning machines should never return with dirt or tree roots attached. This is a sign that your system has been damaged. When there is a break in the pipe, tree roots will be attracted to the water and begin to grow between the crack.
Once there are roots growing in the sewer line, it is easy for any debris to become trapped around them, ultimately causing a clog that the water can no longer pass.
