Sewer & Drain Cleaning in Jacksonville, FL
Prevent Sewer Line Issues
Issues with slow running or clogged sewer systems can be caused by multiple things. To avoid unnecessary work being done, a video camera inspection of the sewer lines is a valuable tool. Video camera sewer inspections allow our expert technicians to see inside the pipes, no matter if they run under your yard or your home's foundation.
Sewer lines can easily become clogged, particularly in an older home that has an old-fashioned plumbing system. These lines may be smaller in diameter than modern piping, leaving less room for debris to pass. Cleaning these lines should be done by a professional plumbing service to ensure that it is done properly with minimum disruption to your everyday life.
David Gray offers professional hydro jetting services, a system of using pressurized water to clean the inside of the pipe. Pressurized water helps to clean the buildup from the inside of the pipe, leaving plenty of room for wastewater to pass through. High-pressure sewer line cleaning is fast and effective, restoring your plumbing system to working condition within a short time.Schedule Your Service Today
Video Camera Inspections
In some cases, the issue with a home's drainage system is not buildup. Rocks or foreign items can become caught in the pipes. Outside your home, the roots of nearby trees can grow into the path of a pipe underground. Tree roots are surprisingly strong and in some cases can grow through a pipe or displace the pipe from its place in the drainage system. This can cause an especially large problem if the tree root is affecting the main drain which carries the wastewater from your home to the public sewer system. Using the RIGID SeeSnake system, our expert plumbers can inspect the sewer line to see where the issue is before digging and repair work begins. This results in a more precise solution that eliminates unnecessary messes.
If your sewer system is not draining properly, call David Gray Plumbing to have your sewer line inspected or cleaned.

Signs You Need Drain Cleaning
Does your home need its drains cleaned? If water is moving slowly or you have frequent clogs, then chances are it does, but these are just a few of the signs that you need a drain cleaning service. Other indicators include:
- Slow drains – Over time, everything from hair to grease can build up in your pipes, and this will slow down your drains. This won’t get better with time, and it’s a clear sign you need drain cleaning.
- Strange smells – If your drains have an unpleasant or strong odor, only cleaning them will remedy the issue.
- Frequent clogs – If you find yourself reaching for the plunger regularly, then it’s time to have your drains cleaned.
- Gurgling sounds – Gurgles from the drain or the toilet are a clear sign that you need to have your drains cleaned because this indicates air trapped somewhere in the system.
If you’re noticing these problems, contact David Gray for drain cleaning service right away.
