I predominately use cable and section rooter machines to clear or clean clogged pipes, drains or sewers. There are other methods such as water jetters that are effective but do carry risks. In my opinion the physical cutter method of clearing pipes is the most effective and least detrimental to plumbing systems.
At times video pipe inspection is recommended when I feel it will give relevant information. WT Smiths’ Service Sewer and Drain Rooter does provide that service with the ability to locate the issue.
Call Before You Dig (811) is a free service provided in an effort to prevent damage to underground utilities. Typically third party contractors locate communication lines (cable and telephone). Local utilities locate service lines, electrical conduit and natural gas lines in easements and to where they are metered. As part of my rooter service many times I have cables in plastic sewer lines and a transmitter to induce a signal on those cables as well as a beacon or sonde equipped camera and a receiver to locate those lines. I provide locating of underground utilities in areas where 811 service is not responsible.
WT Smith started his plumbing business in the late 1970’s. In the last few decades he concentrated on providing essentially an emergency service clearing sewer and drain pipes primarily employing rooter machines. WT has retired. My name is Jim Foster. I am WT’s brother-in-law and I intend to continue the business with the same main focus.
I place great importance on customer service.
