If you own, manage, or live in a house, apartment, condo or office building, you'll occasionally need the services of a drain cleaning company. Arrow Pipeline has the know-how and the equipment to take care of any drain or sewer line problem you encounter from the simplest drain stoppage to the most difficult sewer pipe repair.

We utilize two primary clean-out methods:

1.) Traditional cable snaking: and, 2.) Jetter service. Which method is used depends entirely on the scope of the problem. Generally speaking, a cable is always tried first with a jetter employed as needed.

Cable (Snaking)
This traditional method uses a rotating mechanical cable that is fed into the pipe to scrape the sludge from the sides of the pipe. The pipe is actually cleaned/cleared/unstopped by a combination of the rotating cable and the weight of the water itself. This method is limited to a maximum range of 150' from the access point and is most effective at 75' or less. Standard fee: $75.00.

Jetter Service Image Jetter Service
A jetter is actually a very powerful pump that uses high pressure water as a tool to thoroughly clean the inside circumference of a pipe. A steel reinforced hose with a bullet nozzle is inserted into the cleanout and the pump is brought up to pressure. The nozzle directs powerful streams of water against the pipe which propels if forward scouring the pipe as it advances. As the pressure is generated only at the nozzle head, it provides a safe and more effective alternative to mechanical snaking.

A jetter can clean bigger pipe (6" pipe and larger MUST be jetted, cannot be snaked), and can effectively clean up to 500' away. Jetters are typically used for greasy restaurant lines, large apartment complexes, large HOA common sewer lines, schools, shopping centers, and stubborn stoppages that cannot be cleared with a cable. Minimum fee: $275.00.
