They were courteous and hard working people .
We had a leak in our kitchen, and Schuelke Plumbing came out fairly immediate to begin the remediation and repair services. Very happy with them, and really appreciative that it's a local, family owned and operated company.

Customer wishes to have estimate for epoxy lining. Had several root intrusions and needed approximately 30’ of pipe replaced
-Performed camera inspection from cleanout for kitchen sink drain and was able to run the camera approximately 50’ before not being able to go any further with camera. Did not see any issues with this section of drains. -Also performed inspection from cleanout in back yard for bathroom. Was able to go approximately 20’ before not being able to push the camera any further. - performed camera inspection from cleanout in front yard, this cleanout lead us back under the house and did not see any issues except where the cleanout was installed has a small belly (low spot in the line) that’s holding water. Strongly recommend getting this section dug up and repaired. Cannot perform camera inspection out under the street due to improper cleanout installation.
Snaked laundry drain with cable snake. Ran several cycles through washer and everything was draining properly. Attempted to run camera through roof vent. Could not get past laundry/kitchen sink connection due to to many turn and corrosion. When I back large amounts of lint.
Was able to clear clog from roof access through customers main vent. Performed camera inspection and noticed customer had a large build up of toilet paper which was causing the toilet to drain slowly. Was able to flush out debris and toilet paper.
Was able to her line opened. Performed camera inspection and noticed customer had severe root intrusion right before first main cleanout. Sections of Customers cast iron pipe was also corroding away allowing dirt to enter the drain causing the clog as well. Highly recommend jackhammering up this section of pipe and replacing for $1,550. Customer will continue to have these issues until this section of pipe is replaced. Performed spot repair on section of cast iron pipe exiting the house as recommended. Was able to remove large section of roots. Followed up with another camera inspection and noticed customer had another root intrusion where sewer main tied into sewer main by garage. Dug up this section and removed second root intrusion. Recommended to customer to replace remaining sections of cast iron pipe under house and in backyard. Ran camera rest of the length towards city sewer and didn’t see any major issues.
Customers wax ring failed causing it to leak water. Pulled toilet and replaced wax ring. Re-set toilet. Flushed toilet several times and leak had stopped while I was working, tenant pointed out toilet constantly run and shower has a steady drip to it. Replaced fill valve and shower steams and seats
Was able to clear clog from cleanout behind kitchen sink. Ran camera and noticed customer had old corroded cast iron pipe. Next time customer has clog recommend performing hydrojeting.
Perform Water damage mitigation
Responded reference a leak in the wall behind the kitchen cabinets. Performed leak detection and determined the possible source to be the kitchen sink drain. Once the mitigation was performed it was confirmed that the 2" ABS sanitary tee was cracked above the foundation. We removed the cleanout Tee and the sanitary tee and replaced both with all new ABS pipe and fittings. The crack in the fitting caused grey water to leak onto the foundation causing damage to the cabinets and drywall.
Customer requested estimate for installling cleanout for unit 3 and descaling of cast iron drain Jackhammered up asphalt near beginning of stairs and installed a cleanout T. Customer had large amounts of build up inside of drains. Performed hydrojetting and snaking in order to remove the build up in the cast iron pipe leading towards unit 3 the best we could. Ran camera downstream as well and did not see any further issues.
