Rodding and Cleaning Blocked Drains
Is there anything more annoying than a clogged drain? It puts a huge damper on your day, leaves a mess, and wastes time and money. Fortunately, Old World Plumbing offers rodding services at a fair price, and we get the job done quickly and effectively so you can get back to your day.
Rodding is a technique that plumbers use to unblock drains and sewers through the use of stiff, yet flexible rods that are screwed together end to end to a length long enough to clear the clog. The twisting motion of the rod works with water flow to quickly clear out obstacles getting in the way of the normal flow of water from a home to the sewer.
In the case of a more stubborn clog, a cleaning tool will be attached to the front of the rod and a motor will rotate it, breaking down the clog into more manageable pieces.

Old World Plumbing is proud to offer plumbing services to residents of Kane, Kendall, Cook and DuPage Counties. Residents rely on us for our sewer and drain rodding services that clear out anything that prevents the flow of wastewater to the city sewer lines.
The plumbing system in a residential property can be complex. If your home has been added on to or if it’s old, drainage can be compromised by significant clogs. This is a perfect situation for rodding. From grease to hair to tree roots, Old World Plumbing has seen it all and can remove anything that gets in your drainage path.
Clogged or backed up sewer line and drain
When a clog goes unattended for too long, it can create a situation where water pressure pushes sewage into the home, making for a very unhealthy situation. Furthermore, leaks can spring inside walls, which poses a health hazard as well as a very expensive repair job due to damaged drywall and support structures.
Not all plumbing systems are created alike, which is why Old World Plumbing uses tools that are custom-fit to work in your sewer line and drain. We also provide emergency services because nobody ever plans for a clogged sewer line or drain — and when it happens, it requires immediate attention.
Some clogs are the results of tree roots, which find a near constant source of water via leaky sewer lines. This is not a healthy relationship because tree roots have been known to “find” their way in to pipes, causing a difficult clog. Because roots grow faster than what you see above ground, the invasive nature of this interaction can be severe and come on quite quickly. Fortunately, trenchless sewer repair can be employed to remedy the situation without tearing up your entire lawn.
