ZOOM DRAIN is an essential business specializing in cleaning, inspecting and repairing drains and sewers, and when it comes to getting ahead of the competition, we have the edge. Most of our competition in this niche comes from independent plumbing contractors who don’t typically have the means, or desire, to do drains properly. Instead of competing, we turn these and mom-and-pop shops and contractors into referral partnerships, benefiting both parties using our proven franchise systems.

“ZOOM DRAIN is a niche business that provides a service a lot of people don’t like to do or don’t do well,” says Ellen Rohr, co-founder and COO. “It’s recession-resistant; it’s never going away. And we do it better than anybody else.”


To have a truck in every neighborhood and be the first choice for service.


We deliver proven systems, training and support to help enterprising people and teams build prosperous businesses.

What you get with a ZOOM DRAIN franchise

ZOOM DRAIN is a leading franchise in the drain and sewer industry because we’re great at what we do. We’re great at what we do because we’ve created exceptional processes and procedures. For instance, we have plans to follow for:

  • Marketing. We can help you generate the right number of calls, from the right customers, at the right time to build your business in an underserved market segment.
  • People. Your business is only as great as your best tech and only as strong as your admin staff. We can show you how to find great techs as well as how to build a top-notch office staff.
  • Operational. Once you find the right people, you have to know how to train them. ZOOM DRAIN has a proven process to transform talented people from new-kid-on-the-block status into the kind of skilled employee you’ll hang onto.
  • Financial. Data driven decision making can provide you with goals, profitable pricing and a ready-to-go chart of accounts.
  • Leadership. You may have a ton of ideas, but we know how to execute. And we can show you exactly how — and where — to start, detailing project processes and providing operations manuals for every role in the company.

A couple years ago, we tried to start a drain-cleaning department on our own. We just couldn’t get it off the ground. It was like a throwaway department. We hired a tech, and then he quit, and we would be out of the drain business. I knew drain cleaning could be profitable. We just weren’t making it happen. Sound familiar? We decided to partner with ZOOM DRAIN, and since then, we have made money every month in drain and sewer work.”
