Ventura Drain Service and Rooter Plumbing Service

Rex Plumbing & Rooter provides comprehensive drain repair and rooter services in Ventura County. A drain stoppage can be caused by excessive food, old cast-iron plumbing, or even rust and debris buildup from years of use. Old corroded piping can fail at any time and can cause major water damage. The first signs of a problem can be a slow drain or gurgling noises from toilet bowl or the kitchen sink. Left untreated, a clogged drain problem can also cause water damage from a leak under sink, a leak in the wall or a drain leak under floor. These drain problems can leave a foul smell inside the kitchen, bathroom or house and also create a location for mold to exist.

Clogged Drains and Drain Stoppages

Drain stoppages can also be caused by roots in the main sewer. To remove roots properly, the right equipment and experience must be applied. Roots in cast-iron drains under concrete are a rare occurrence, but it does happen. To properly diagnosis where a root intrusion is located, and the extent of damage, a camera inspection must be done to locate the problem.  When a problem is visual on the camera monitor screen our technician is able to make a better diagnosis and create a description of work to make the proper plumbing repair.  The technician is also able to locate the camera underground using electronic line location equipment on the surface. This electronic locating technology can detect exact locations deep under concrete or soil. Using modern technology to answer important plumbing questions is an effective way to save money and create solutions to complicated plumbing issues. Rex Plumbing & Rooter emergency services can treat and cure all your clogged drains 24/7!
