Drain service


I know this is probably a long shot but does anyone know of a drain cleaning service such as a Roto Rooter service in the La Paz/Cabo area? I have a problem and want to go the easiest route possible before I start tearing up my hardscape. Thanks, BK

I used miriatic (sp) acid and let it sit a few hours. That worked for me.

I did see all the listed companies. I will try that route, but I was hoping someone had some first hand experience before starting down the list. I've tried acid, air and water pressure, with no success. I also tried a small drain snake but the clog is somewhere beyond the reach of that, approx. 25'. After 20 years of adding on patios, etc., the connection to the septic tank line (I have a garbage disposal) has long been covered with concrete and stone (septic system is fine.) It's frustrating to face ripping up the place without trying something as basic as a snake if I can find one. I would even be willing to buy one if available. Thanks for all the responses.

The home depot's in the states rent a 100' sewer snake. Maybe they do there as well.

Depending on who built your house you might have registros(like a cement and block box, usually has a removable cover) that your drain line runs into and has another line that runs to your septic, they are usually within 1-3 meters of where the drain leaves the house, also depends how far away your septic is located, there can be a couple of them if it's a long distance, they are your clean outs.
So I'm just wondering if your hitting a registro or the actual blockage?
I've seen plumbers use a piece of rebar with a T handle to probe for the cement covers when possible.
(The ground could be moist near a registro that's backed up)

An alternative to a regular sewer snake is to buy a drain cleaning kit for a pressure washer if you have one. They work good and won’t usually damage pipes. They are $60 to $100 and come with 100’ of hose.
