Power rodding is the process of using an electronically powered sewer machine with heavy-duty cables that turn blades clockwise and counter-clockwise to remove a blockage or root intrusion. In many cases, a sewer or drainage pipe that is backed up may need to be rodded before it can be video inspected such as when tree roots have gotten so thick that they obstruct visual access or the sewer line is heavily clogged. Power rodding will allow the water to drain down, so that the video camera can then be inserted into the pipe and the root of the problem can be visually identified.
Save thousands of dollars on costly sewer line replacements for your home! Power rodding is an effective and powerful method, and will remove blockages that some other methods may not be able to get through. Tree roots can do a great deal of damage to sewer lines as they grow over time and create such high pressure that they cause the pipe to crack.
