Drain Snake, Wilmington, NC

We use drain snakes to get rid of clogs.

When your sink or toilet gets clogged, you may get out your plunger and try to dislodge the buildup, allowing water to flow freely through the drain once again. While this is a good first step if you have a clog, unfortunately, it doesn’t always get results.
Drain Snake in Wilmington, North Carolina
When you need help getting rid of a plumbing clog, turn to us at East Atlantic Plumbing LLC. When we come to tackle the clog, we will likely use a drain snake. A drain snake has a long, flexible metal cable along with an uncoiled spring. When you put it down a drain, it uncoils until it reaches the obstruction blocking the pipe and causing the backup.

One of the main reasons we like using a drain snake to get rid of clogs is because it won’t damage your pipes. A drain snake also lets us get deep within your pipes, removing clogs large and small from your piping.

"The only company we will call.”


“We had an issue with our main sewage line being clogged and a bad water leak under our house. They came out and fixed it within an hour, and it was extremely reasonably priced. Moving forward, they will be the only company we will call with any plumbing or water leak issues.”
