Raymark is The Expert

Raymark Plumbing and Sewer is truly a drain specialist.  We are known in the industry for solving any and all drain problems, and we are the experts in drain solutions.

Drain Cleaning and Repair

Every home contains multiple drains and drain lines. These lines should be kept clear to function properly and keep waste water flowing out of your home. Water and drain lines are much like our circulatory system – small lines and veins flow into larger lines and arteries. When the larger lines become slow or clogged, serious back-ups and stoppages can occur. At the first sign of a slowdown, call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer to have your drain lines cleaned.  Give yourself peace of mind and give your home a clean bill of health.

 Typical Findings

Ideally, waste water is the only thing flowing through your drain lines.  The reality is that many factors can cause slow drains, clogs, or backed up drain lines. For example:

  • Blockages form due to foreign objects put into a drain line or toilet. Those can include wipes, toys, and anything with string, like tampons, dental floss, and tea bags.
  • Age contributes to corrosion, holes, clogs, and breaks in the line.
  • A smaller clog could be pushed down into a larger line that already has some obstructions, causing a major back up.
  • Obstructions from tree roots or rocks outside

 Efficient Drain Lines

Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer for regular or emergency drain cleaning. We are here to help you maintain your home at its maximum efficiency by:

  • Cleaning the p-traps under your sinks
  • Testing toilet tanks and bowls to ensure they are draining properly
  • Checking for leaks
  • Conducting routine drain cleaning using snaking or jetting methods

Prevention

Pay attention to your drains. The sound of water running freely down the drain is the sound you want to hear. If you don’t hear that, keep an eye on that drain and call Raymark to clean it if needed.

To prevent slow drains and clogs, allow only waste water in your drain pipes.  Because that is difficult, here are some specific suggestions that will help:

Catch debris

  • Place a mesh strainer or screen over your drain openings. This strainer or filter will gather the hair, soap chips, and food particles from going down the drain, which will save you trouble and money down the road. Most soaps are made from fats and contribute to build ups. Clean these screens regularly and you won’t have to call us later.

Review Layout

  • Assess your drain line layout. Every layout is different and some drain pipes are difficult to reach. Others may be hidden behind walls, floors, or below the ground. Our Raymark technicians are happy to come out and assess problem areas and offer solutions. We can insert a camera into a drain line in order to view what’s going on. This works well when lines are inaccessible, or when a line has a sharp turn.  To avoid repeated plumbing visits, it may be expedient to replace a section of drain pipe with a smoother turn or a more gravity efficient layout.

No Grease

  • Do not put oil or grease down kitchen drains, bathroom drains, or down the toilet.  Water can’t cut through oil, and grease solidifies in the drain and causes blockages. We recommend wiping grease from pots, pans, and dishes with a paper towel before washing them, and then put the paper towel in the garbage.  Furthermore, the City of Seattle’s recycling program recommends large amounts of grease and fats go in the garbage, and not in your compost container.

No Chemicals

  • Do not use chemicals to clear a clogged drain. Any substance that eats through hair and grease will also eat through your pipes and garbage disposal. If you pour drain cleaner into your sink and then call a plumber, it is likely the plumber will come into contact with these corrosive chemicals. Call us first; let Raymark take care of the problem and use methods safe for everyone.

FAQs

  • Our bathroom sink is always clogged with hair. Any suggestions on this issue?

    The easiest option is to place an inexpensive mesh strainer in the sink. This strainer will catch hair and other debris before it goes down the drain and creates a clog.

    In addition, an effective but perhaps less feasible option is to install the bathroom mirror in a location other than over the sink.  This moves the task of brushing hair away from the sink and prevents hair from falling into the drain.

     

  • Can I sign up for an annual inside drain cleaning service?

    Yes, call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer for regular drain cleaning. Our experienced and expert plumbers will check all of your drains and clean them as needed. As a result, you have free-flowing shower, sink, tub, and toilet drain lines.

  • My drains are clogged. What do I do?

    Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer if you experience backups, clogs, or slow drains. Raymark’s experienced and expert technicians clean your drain lines, remove grease and hair from your p-traps, open up clogged lines, and handle any drain or sewer issues you have. 

    In fact, Raymark plumbers are the professional experts for all of your plumbing and sewer needs. Call us today at 206-430-1954.

Called on a holiday morning with a toilet crisis (it WAS a crisis because we only have one, and it was completely clogged) – Joe promptly came out and remedied the situation within the hour. Expected a long wait and a hefty bill but no such case. Joe additionally advised us to replace our old, inefficient toilet sometime in the future. Not the first time we’ve called Raymark and won’t be the last.

Jose was awesome: gave my kitchen faucet a quick temporary fix while I got a new fixture, and then installed the new one perfectly. Brittany (in the office) made sure Jose got here as soon as possible!

Hayden and his team were fantastic. Fast, high-quality work at an affordable price. They have a lot of experience dealing with older buildings, and I would highly recommend Raymark for anyone living in a building or home with older pipes.

Ty and his assistant did a great job replacing pipes under our kitchen sink and attaching earthquake straps to the hot water tank. Ty was very patient in explaining the position of the straps. I would ask for him again in a heartbeat…. They were on time and finished very quickly.

Had a clog that was filling up my basement. The guys at Raymark found the problem and replaced the pipe. After the pipe was replaced they made sure the rest of the plumbing was in working condition. Their attitudes were great and they worked hard. Very satisfied customer.

Good morning, Raymark. Thanks, Anthony, for sending Dan to the rescue last week. We hadn’t been struck by an earthquake under our kitchen sink after all. Dan tightened the wobbly faucet, as well as its companion spouts, then wrestled the obstinate spray hose into line. Ingenious, he cobbled a defense so the hose could avoid tangling in the pipes. Dan is genial, and we really appreciate his visit.

Sincerely yours,
