At Russell's, we offer professional expert plumbing services to promptly address and clear any clogged drain. Whether you're simply tired of having to use the plunger twice a week on the same toilet or if every drain in your house is backed up and overflowing into your home, we treat your plumbing issue with the utmost attention and priority.

The Best Way to Clear a Clogged Drain...

...is letting a professional handle it. Residential plumbing contractors like the experts at Russell’s have years of experience, not to mention specialized tools to handle any clogged drain repair. You may find some success with over-the-counter chemical products for smaller clogs, but using too many chemicals can lead to pipe corrosion, and mixing different products can actually create toxic gases and dangerous chemical reactions in your home.

Professional drain clearing prioritizes non-chemical solutions to drainage issues. Electric rotating drain snakes, high-pressure water jets, and yes sometimes a good old plunger (when put in the right hands) can resolve even the most backed up and stubborn blockage.

Clearing Sewer Line Blockage 

A single clogged toilet or sink drain is one problem, but if all of the drains in your house are backed up, you likely have a different, and much more serious, problem: a blockage in your main sewer line. A blockage like this can create major issues if you don’t address the problem in time.

Continuing to use significant amounts of water with sewer line blockages can lead to serious flooding and damage inside your home, as the water has no place to go but back into your home. If you do notice that all of your drains are backed up at once, or if they’re making gurgling noises when you run a shower or the washing machine, turn off the running water at the source and immediately call for plumbing assistance.

    Pamela F., Chesapeake, VA
  • Every moment from the time an appointment was set up until the day the work was completed was a pleasure. Every employee was a delight to work with. The proof that the product was great came when the electric bills started coming in the airconditioning season.

    Douglas P., VA Beach

  • A year ago, I contracted with Russell's to tune up and clean the heating and cooling system. How impressively your specialist cleaned my system...he also found a defective automatic (programmable) thermostat. Quite quickly, he replaced my automatic thermostat. The results?

    R. Snider, Norfolk, VA
