We Are The Masters of Drain Cleaning

Drain Masters is a local full-service plumbing company with specialists in sewer and drain cleaning.  Whether you’re dealing with a slow running drain or a total clog, whether in the kitchen, bath, or laundry our experience tells us exactly what to do.  Tub and shower problems are typically caused by hair and soap scum, often close enough for you to easily reach.  Problems in the laundry are usually the result of lint building up.  Kitchen clogs can be a bit trickier, caused by some combination of grease, sludge, and food debris.  Our first step in drain cleaning is to understand the problem.  Only then will we apply solutions such as cabling (drain snaking).  If over-the-counter drain cleaning liquids or a call to an economy service have left you with a slow sink or the problem returns, then it’s time to call in the Imperial Beach professionals.

Sewer Cleaning

A toilet back-up is usually caused by some foreign object getting flushed and can be removed through the toilet flange.  But if other fixtures are also affected you most likely need sewer cleaning.  The blockage could be the result of tree roots entering the line, grease build-up, sludge building up in sags, and so on.  Our experts will determine the cause and the best course of action.  With a special nozzle attachment, our hydro-jetting equipment clears 90% of tree roots, avoiding the expense of digging and sewer line replacement.

Hydro Jetting

Cabling may only poke a hole through a grease build up.  You may think everything has been fixed, only for that hole to plug up again in a matter of a few months.  And that’s all many Imperial Beach local plumbers have to offer.  Our hydro-jetting service uses high-pressure water (around 1,400 psi for kitchen drains, up to 3,500 psi for sewer cleaning) to thoroughly remove all grease and build-up, leaving the insides of your drain pipes as clean as when they were new.

Electronic Leak Detection

If a leak, large or small, develops in pipes under the floor slab (the most common type of construction in Imperial Beach) that’s a triple-threat.  First, since it’s under flooring and several inches of concrete you’re less likely to notice it, and detection and location can be a bit more difficult.  Second, slab leak repairs are more expensive and more disruptive — often involving removing flooring, breaking through the concrete, making the repair, then restoring everything.  Third, if neglected there can be severe damage due to soil erosion undermining the foundation and leading to cracks and even structural problems.  You need true experts, like those at Drain Masters.

Slab Leak Repair

Today there are alternatives to jack-hammering through concrete to make a spot repair.  In addition to re-piping around the slab (solving the current issue and reducing the cost and odds of future repairs), modern slab leak repair methods include pipelining.  That involves inserting a cured-in-place non-toxic epoxy lining inside existing pipes.  We’ll be happy to discuss the pros and cons of the options available in your particular situation, and bring in the right experts to implement your choice.

Hot Water Heater Services

Water heaters last around 12 years.  Sometimes it can be as short as 8 years with lower-priced models and poor maintenance, or as long as 15 years with properly serviced premium models.  A water heater repair is, of course, cheaper than a new water heater installation, but if your unit is nearing the end of its expected lifetime or has been giving you frequent trouble a replacement is a better choice in the long run.  As always, as your Imperial Beach local plumber we’ll be happy to discuss the tradeoffs for your particular circumstances.

Water Heater Repair

If you find yourself with no hot water, first check that the thermostat is still set properly.  Then check that the pilot light is burning for gas units and that the circuit-breaker hasn’t tripped for electric units.  If that doesn’t do the trick, then its time to call us for a water heater repair.  Other symptoms calling for attention include suddenly being without enough hot water, noticing a leak, hearing unusual noises, or experiencing rusty or smelly water.  With an expert diagnosis from those symptoms and a few tests, we’ll go straight to the problem for a quick and economical solution.

Water Heater Installation

If your unit has caused multiple disruptions to your daily routine or is getting old, then its time for a new water heater installation.  And if the tank itself is leaking then there’s simply no choice.  We’ll be happy to go over the trade-offs of first cost, dependability, lifetime, and energy-efficiency to help you choose the right make and model.  Most water heater installations take us only a few hours and can be scheduled for the next day, and often for the same day.
