The mechanical auger is a useful tool for removing hard blockages in sewer lines of almost all sizes.
Commonly known as a 'snake', the mechanical cable is driven by an electric motor which turns the cable, allowing it to travel along the entire length of the line being serviced.
The technician chooses from a range of cutting heads, depending on the type of blockage most common for a particular line. This means retrieval heads and root-cutting heads for main lines where you want to remove foreign materials that may have been flushed, or where a tree root has entered the line through a pipe joint.
Mechanical augers are also useful in galvanized steel lines, where often there is a buildup of corrosion that is contributing to the reduced performance of the drain line.
