You know you can’t (or just shouldn’t) re-roof your house or mess with its electrical system. The hot water heater? That’s a disaster waiting to happen. For some reason, though, these sentiments don’t extend to drainage problems. After all, how complicated can it be? It’s a pipe water should be going down but isn’t. You’re positive the solution is to use the most caustic cleaner you can find to clear it out. Stop! Instead, when you encounter these types of issues, call plumbing professionals.
Plumbing problems always occur at the exact worst moment, and your immediate inclination is to step in to fix the problem. Don’t try to be a hero. That’s because you can easily end up causing more problems than you solve. Instead, contact your local plumbing experts to do the job right the first time around.
This one is simple: When you have drains or toilets back up – especially if they’re in the lowest part of your home and not used regularly – you have a problem bigger than you can handle yourself. The issue isn’t even where the water is coming out, that’s just a symptom. Instead, you likely have a serious blockage deep in your sewer line. It will take professional equipment to deal with this effectively.
You should never have sewage odors in your house. If you do, it could mean there is a break in your sewer line which needs to be repaired. Or, if you have a problem with one or more slow drains, the smell may come from waste buildup inside your pipes. Either way, you need a professional to determine the cause and best course of action.
Multiple clogged drains are also a symptom of a more serious blockage deep in your plumbing system. There’s no way drain cleaners or a plunger will fix this. Instead, it could easily be something like tree root intrusions in your sewer line. Plumbers will use an industrial snake or even hydro jetting to clear out these problems.
If you have a recurring clogged drain, the repeated use of caustic cleaners at best is only providing temporary relief and at worst is damaging the interior of your pipe system. This problem hardly ever comes from a single blockage as opposed to, for example, minerals building up inside pipes. So once again, pro drain cleaning is the smart option.
Even a single clogged drain can indicate a more serious problem than just a simple blockage. After all, your plumbing system is designed to easily handle typical daily usage. Head off trouble at the pass by having an expert determine the actual underlying issue.
Your best bet to avoid plumbing disasters is to make sure they don’t happen to start with. That means you need to have regularly scheduled maintenance. Our trained technicians have the skills and tools to keep water going down the drain just like it should.
