Clogged Drain? We Can Get the Water Flowing!
Steve’s Plumbing is your drain cleaning expert.
If you looked at a cross section of the typical kitchen drain line, you would find it partially to completely clogged with a layer of gunk from every time you rinse your dishes or run your garbage disposal. Yeah-we know-it’s not a pretty picture.
Drain Cleaning – A Dirty Job
This is going to get dirty, but we promise to clean things up quickly! If you looked at a cross section of the typical kitchen drain line, you would find that it is partially clogged with a layer of gunk. This layer is formed from the continuous rinsing of your dishes and your garbage disposal. No, it’s not a pretty picture. But Steve’s Plumbing can clean that drain line and help ensure a blockage doesn’t happen again.
Our competition may just be poking a hole through the gunk, which doesn’t address the problem long-term. Your plumbing might work properly for a while, but without a thorough cleaning it will only clog up again. At Steve’s Plumbing, we do the job right. We’ll clean the inside of the drain with our hydro-jetting equipment (sometimes called drain jetting), which effectively uses a high-pressure flow of water to clean the interior surfaces of plumbing.
Prevent future clogs with Biosmart
Biosmart is an environmentally friendly, EPA-approved product that forms a safe bacterial shield inside your pipes and prevents the gunk buildup. There are millions of bacteria in a 2-ounce dose, and they double in number every 30 minutes, eradicating the solids quickly and effectively. This product, which is on Washington State’s approved list for plumbing additives, is ideal for kitchen drains, bathroom sink drains, tubs, showers, sewers, and septic tanks.
” We are especially pleased with your professional and kind ways, from how well that you communicate scheduling, arrive when you say you will, explain the problem, to how well you execute the solution. . . all with patience and expertise.
Your suggestions for preventative maintenance have been greatly appreciated. ”

Sewer Blockage – A Dirtier Job
Fixing a sewer problem is often an even dirtier job than cleaning a drain. This is different than unclogging a toilet (which we handle as well), and requires a more complex set of tools. We offer a free Drain Vision video camera inspection for every sewer blockage service call. This high tech tool allows us to identify the root of the problem very quickly. Seeing is believing, so we often invite homeowners to watch with us as the camera snakes through the line, revealing the cause. Popcorn is not recommended for this movie experience, but we can assure you it’s a real crowd-pleaser. Just don’t expect to see a sequel any time soon.
In addition to unclogging plumbing, Hydro Jetting is the safest, most efficient means of truly cleaning a clogged sewer. Our trailer mounted US Jetter directs a razor sharp stream of water at up to 4000 psi, and 18 gallons per minute, through the sewer lines. It’s powerful stuff. The stream clears any clog, easily removing roots and other obstructions. In light of PSE’s warning of potential cross bores, where gas lines may have been installed directly through sewer lines, this is a safer alternative to the traditional method of cable and cutting heads.
Garbage Disposal-Jammed or broken?
Is your disposal jammed? Sometimes homeowners try to get rid of food waste not meant for the garbage disposal. Sometimes non-food items accidentally find their way inside the system. We’ve seen it all. If possible, we will try to save you money by freeing the disposal from the blockage and restoring operation. If it’s beyond repair, we carry a wide selection of quiet, efficient brand name models that we can install on the spot. We’ll have your sink back to normal in no time!
Disposing of Hazardous Products
Did you know that products like Drano and Liquid Plumber are legal to pour down your drain – but cannot be legally thrown out with your household garbage? Our technicians can safely dispose of these products for you; both safely and legally.
If you are a member of our Diamond Club, your newly installed garbage disposal will have a Lifetime Warranty – so you’ll never have to worry about costly repairs again. If you’re not a member and want to learn more about the wonderful benefits it brings, visit our Diamond Club page.
