Full Description

Drain Technicians are at the forefront of our customers in their most vulnerable state. When a building is flooding due to clogged drains, it's up to us to show up, investigate the source, control the situation and find a solution to the problem. We are courteous, we show empathy and handle the needs of our customers with the most care possible. This requires skills to understand, troubleshoot, maintain and repair sewer, storm, drain waste, and vent systems. There is a strong emphasis on understanding the equipment used to perform these jobs as well as the maintenance of that equipment. The technician is responsible for making independent decisions under pressure on critical needs.
