 A tradition of service

The team at Eyman has served generations of residential and commercial customers through plumbing and pipe cleaning services. Using video inspection technology, Eyman professionals can visualize your drainage problems and the debris that stands in the way of a clean, functioning pipe. Whether you have a major plumbing leak or a backed-up drain, Eyman has the team to get the problem fixed thoroughly and professionally.


From bathroom and kitchen sinks to tubs and showers, drainage lines should be clean and free of clogs that may cause pipes to back up and overflow. When pipes clog, leaks can result and cause water damage over time if left untreated. To avoid major plumbing issues, acquaint yourself with the everyday causes of dirty or backed-up drains in your home.

 Common causes of clogged drains

The average household can experience leaks that account for nearly 10,000 gallons of wasted water every year, and 10 percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many leaks begin as clogged drains. They can be caused by the following:

  • Hair can get into your shower or sink drain and affect your pipes. If you notice standing water in your shower, it is most likely due to a combination of hair and soap residue that can back up your drain.

  • Hygiene products such as flushable wipes and toilet paper can build up inside pipes and block your drain. This may mean that your toilet has low water pressure, which can lead to problems with flushing and overflowing.

  • Non-flushable items can also back up toilet drains, such as paper towels, feminine hygiene products and children’s toys.

  • Fat, oil and grease from cooking and food scraps can get stuck on the inside of sink pipes. Over time, these substances can build up and cause a blockage.

  • Egg shells, coffee grinds, fibrous vegetables, popcorn and other types of food residue can become caught in garbage disposals when they don’t break down, resulting in clogs.

  • Tree roots can often grow into sewer lines and cause major blockages, especially in older homes with mature trees.

    Tree roots can grow into sewer lines.

If you experience any of these problems, call the experts. Eyman provides quality plumbing and drain cleaning services that stop minor issues before they become major expenses.

Eyman can help

Backed-up showers, slow drains and clogged pipes are no match for Eyman’s trained professionals. With years of experience in drain cleaning and repair, the team at Eyman can help you tackle any plumbing issue.

Dirty, standing water in the sink or tub may be an issue you want to resolve yourself, but it is best left up to the professionals if you want a long-term solution. Eyman can clear your drain of odors and bacteria before leaks, mold and water damage set in.

Depending on the problem, the team at Eyman offers various drain cleaning services:

  • Hydro jetting uses high-pressure water jets to clear clogs without causing damage to your pipes. This method works for larger drains and stubborn clogs. The professionals at Eyman use up to 4,000 pounds per square inch of water pressure to break through blockages and restore clean, functioning drains.

  • While hydro jetting is often a solution for restaurants or businesses, cable cleaning is more common for general residential fixes. Also known as “snaking,” cable cleaning uses a spinning blade to break down food residue, tree roots and other blockages in small drains.

No matter the size of your plumbing issue, Eyman is committed to making sure the problem goes away. For the past several years, Eyman’s dedication to its customers has resulted in consistent awards from local publications, such as placements on The Reader’s “Best of the Big O!” list. The professionals at Eyman truly go above and beyond to fulfill customers’ needs, as evidenced by the company’s status as one of the few providers of remote hot water service on demand to Omaha restaurant and business owners.
