Marin Sewer and Drain Services – Sewer and Drain Cleaning, Repair, and Replacement 


Sewer & Drain Services

John Owens Services has actively located, cleaned, and repaired Sewers and Drains for over 30 years.

Drains and Sewers

Good working Drains and Sewers are an essential part of any Household Plumbing System. They are as important as the clean water we use to drink and bathe , or the hot water we often take for granted.

Slow running drains, or blocked drains are a real inconvenience. They have a habit of occurring just when guests arrive. Thanksgiving with its abundance of people and food is the busiest drain cleaning day of the year.

Don’t Replace Your Sewer

Maintenance, Repair, and Replacement is the mantra written on the side of our trucks. We much prefer to do maintenance or repair on your sewer or drain system before considering complete replacement. As a company,  we are not in the sewer replacement business. You would not consider replacing your car the first time you went to the shop with a problem. “ Hey! Mr. Jones your starter motor is broken. Sorry for the bad news, I can give you an estimate for a new car”. The same goes for drains and sewers. Maintenance or a localized repair can often solve the problem quickly and effectively. A sales oriented world has created an industry dedicated to replacing our sewers and drains at the first sign of trouble. It defies logic.

Video Sewer & Drain Inspections

Video Sewer and Drain Inspections are very popular. We love high tech equipment that makes finding and solving problems much easier. If a drain or sewer blocks there is always a cause. If it happens more than once it is time to inspect the problem with a sewer or drain video camera. Drain cameras give a complete digital recording of your system. They are used to identify any problems and the exact location and depth of those problems. We use the equipment as a tool to locate and solve a problem. If you are in the sewer replacement business you use the video camera to sell new sewers.

Maintenance Services Offered

Rooter Service – if you have a sewer in your yard and you have trees. It is highly probable you will have root intrusion. Roots can be trimmed on a bi annual or annual basis with a heavy duty “ Rooter” drain cleaning machine

Hair Build Up – have a plumber clean out the hair build up in all the lavatory, bathtub, and shower drains in one visit. This is a lot less expensive than multiple emergency visits, or using up your valuable time to clear the problems

Grease Build Up – Grease and food waste builds up in kitchen drains over many years. The buildup is greater with a garbage disposal. Conventional drain cleaning machines or chemical drain cleaners only poke a hole through the grease or food. We have a portable hydro jet that scours out years of food build up. Restoring the drain pipe to shiny new condition.

Sewer Repair & Drain Repair

Modern technology allows us to video and locate drain and sewer problems. These problems can often be remedied by a localized spot repair. The problem could be one broken or offset sewer fitting, a corroded elbow on a kitchen sink drain. We are also licensed General Contractors carrying out home repairs. We can easily without requiring subcontractors repair walls, floors, or driveways that we cut open to carry out spot repairs.
