What is Sewer Rodding?

Over time and due to various issues, a sewer system can develop clogs and blockages that prevent it from operating as intended. Sewer rodding provides a solution, using rods or augers to dislodge or break apart debris, tree roots, grease buildup, or other materials that may be causing a sewer line to become clogged.

By effectively clearing these obstructions, sewer rodding not only restores wastewater flow but also prevents sewage backups, which can lead to unsanitary and costly situations. 

This method is a proactive approach to maintaining your plumbing system’s functionality and ensuring that your home or business remains free from the inconveniences and potential health hazards associated with sewer line blockages.

When Would You Need Sewer Rodding Services?

Several situations call for sewer rodding services. If your home is experiencing any of the following issues, consider sewer rodding services:


  • Persistent Drain Issues: When you notice multiple slow or clogged drains throughout your home, it may be a sign of a sewer line blockage. 
  • Sewage Backups: Frequent backups in toilets, sinks, or tubs could indicate a serious sewer line problem that requires rodding to remove obstructions. 
  • Foul Odors: Unpleasant sewage odors emanating from drains or the yard could be a sign of a blocked sewer line, which needs to be cleared promptly. 
  • Gurgling Noises: If you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds in your drains when using water fixtures, it may signal a sewer line blockage. 
  • Tree Root Intrusion: Tree roots can infiltrate sewer lines, causing significant blockages. Rodding is often necessary to eliminate root intrusion.
