“We Keep Things Flowing”

Bretz Sewer & Drain Cleaning is a fully licensed & insured plumbing drain cleaning company serving Hermitage,  Sharon, New Castle, Ellwood City, Grove City, Slippery Rock, Mercer, Greenville,  and the surrounding areas in Mercer & Lawrence Counties.  

We clear clogged tub & shower drains, sink drains, laundry drains, toilets, gutters, grease traps, roof vents / stacks, and main sewer drains.  

We offer emergency and maintenance plans for residential and commercial customers.  

Tub & Shower Clogs - Most common problems start with hair, shampoo, soap, and oil combine and build up causing a constriction and ultimately a slow drain.  

Sink Clogs - It's common to have hair, soap, and shaving products build up clogging your bathroom sink.  Or food and other waste clogging your kitchen drain too.   

Clogged Toilet - Sometimes a plunger just doesn't work.  It can temporarily fix the problem but you notice the toilet still drains slow.  We can get this flowing right again.

Sewer Drain Clog or Backup - Are you noticing all your drains moving slow?  You may have an obstruction in your main sewer drain.  This will require professional service to clear that main sewer line.
