What is Drain Milling and How it Works?
Drain milling is a new technology that’s safer, cleaner and lets you see what you’re doing as you’re doing it. Running your drain camera along side of it monitoring your work and making sure everything is getting cleaned out. It’s the perfect one-two punch for drain cleaning, eliminating tough clogs quickly with the capability to restore sewers affected by tree root intrusions, scale buildup, corrosion and cement.
Drain Milling Uses Speed Not Torque
Unlike your traditional auger, drain milling is built on speed, not torque. Certain size chains are on the end of the cable spinning at 3500 RPM, the chains do not expand until you turn it on, which means we can 100% clean a 6″ pipe through a 3″ cleanout.
Drain Milling & Tree Roots
Drain milling is great for tree root intrusions, typically when a main sewer clogs and tree roots are the culprit, someone is coming in with a auger and clearing your drain. Most of the time a video inspection isn’t done and a lot of the tree roots are left behind thus shortening the time span for your next cleaning. Here at Sewerheroes we know your money and time are valuable, not everyone has the 10-15k to replace a main sewer so you want to prolong it till your next cleaning. With drain milling technology/video inspections we make sure those tree roots are 100% gone.

Descaling Cast Iron Pipe
Another great thing drain milling is good for is descaling cast iron pipe. Over time cast iron gets very rough on the inside due to a lot of scale buildup, therefor making the sewer more prone to catch waste and clog.
Typically for descaling cast iron, along with the camera we like to quote the job with a Hydro-jetter along side of the drain milling equipment. Depending how bad the cast iron is, there could be a lot of heavy scale build up that sits on the bottom of the pipe after cleaning. Jetter is strictly there to flush out the scale when complete.
