A clogged drain affects one fixture, but a clogged sewer line affects the entire house, bringing your water use to a screeching halt. Before you reach that point, there are warning signs that let you know you need sewer pipe cleaning:
- A toilet gurgles when you run water in a sink,
- You get a smell of rotting food around your kitchen sink,
- Fixtures back up or overflow when you wash clothes, or
- More than one drain, toilet, sink or tub is clogged.
If You Have a Clogged Sewer Line in Dallas/Fort Worth…
It’s important NOT to run water or flush a toilet when your sewer line is clogged. This will only make the problem worse, possibly causing water damage to your home or exposing your family to raw sewage.
DO check with immediate neighbors to see if they are having similar problems. If so, the clog may be in the city’s sewer pipe.

All billyGO plumbers are trained and equipped for sewer pipe cleaning, repair and replacement. This work requires a heavy-duty, powered sewer snake, not the hand-held kind. These power augers have steel cables up to ¾ inch thick to dislodge the heaviest clogs of grease, paper, hair and other waste matter.
If the line is clogged with tree roots, we attach razor-sharp cutting blades to cut through the tangle. Then we apply a safe biological drain cleaner to prevent further clogs.
This method is safe even for older, more fragile pipes. High-pressure blasting with water at pressures as great as 35,000 PSI can actually damage your sewer line and compound the problem.
