Something is obstructing the path the water needs to flow.

Our Drain Cleaning Tools
Video Camera Drain Inspection
In addition to our sewer and drain cleaning service, A T Large Plumbing has the ability to run a camera down your drain after the blockage has been removed. Running a camera down the problem drain has two major benefits. First, it can often times inform you of what originally caused the drain to back-up. Second, and more importantly, the camera has the ability to show whether or not you will have continuing problems.
A T Large Plumbing utilizes Spartan drain cleaning equipment, including hydro-jetting machine to clean the inside of drain pipes of deposits, roots, and other buildups that accumulate in drain pipes. Our jetter is capable of cleaning sections of lines up to 300 feet in length and sizes from 3” to 12” in diameter at pressures up to 3,000 psi. These high pressure jetters can clean sewer lines from deposits and foreign matter such as:
- Sludge built up over time
- Grease Deposits
- Descaling interior walls of pipes

Some signs that you may have a sewer drain clog:
Multiple Fixtures Clogged
A very clear sign of a sewer drain clog is when more than one plumbing fixture backs up at the same time. Toilets are the most affected by this, but other fixtures can also be involved. If you suspect that you have a sewer drain clog start by checking other fixtures in the home.
Toilets have the most direct path to the sewer and the biggest drain line in the house. If a sewer drain problem arises, your toilets will be affected. It is atypical to have a main line sewer stoppage where the toilets are working properly.
Strange Reactions When Using Fixtures
The next thing to look for when you suspect a sewer drain clog are any strange reactions when using your plumbing.
- Flush The Toilet - If flushing the toilet causes water to back up or come up into the tub or shower this is generally a sign of a sewer drain block.
- The flushed water that cannot go down the sewer drain flows back up the pipes and comes out at the lowest point which is usually the shower drain.
- Use The Sink - Search for trapped air in the plumbing. Run water in your lavatory closest to the toilet for a minute or two. If the toilet bubbles or you see water rising in the bowl, then it is very likely the main sewer line that is blocked, not the toilet.
Tub and Shower - Other drains typically affected by a main line stoppage are those in the tub and shower. This is due to the fact that they sit lower than a sink drain. Check whether the tub and shower drains are blocked if you suspect a sewer drain clog.
