Do You Have a Clogged Sink Drain?
In the world of plumbing, the small things are what you should be paying attention to so the items you are noting don’t turn into big things. Small changes in your plumbing are actually indicators that something has changed and not for the better – it’s your plumbing’s way of getting your attention if you will. In terms of your sink drain and clogs, there are two main changes that you should always be wary of – we’ve listed them below.
Your Drainage HAS Changed
This particular change is rather insidious; it doesn’t happen overnight. Slowly but surely that issue will creep along and it won’t seem like anything at first. It will make such a small difference most are inclined to ignore it and carry on – it still works so there is no problem – reality is that there is one. Suddenly, you are overcome with stagnant wastewater that is refusing to drain from your shower or sink. By this point the issue is much bigger – don’t ignore this type of thing!
Your Water Pressure HAS Changed
Calcium deposits are known to develop and cause a buildup. It happens within your plumbing in the thingy known as an aerator. When buildup occurs in the aerator your water pressure will not be as strong. Again, this is something that will sneak up on your gradually so soon as you feel your pressure is down one pinch do pay attention. This is very much a common issue within household and it will affect both your hot and cold water. This can land you in a warm at best drippy kinda shower – no one wants that!
Minor & Major Clogs
Minor clogs are typically due to hair or soap residue are easily taken care of. If you are unable to loosen the clog yourself, we can come and get your drain running up to speed with little to no effort. If it’s a major clog however, a little more investigation has to occur before we do anything. First things first, we drop a camera down your pipes to see what we are dealing we.
Augers & Hydro Jets
An auger (“snake”) would be used for situations like tree roots that are thick and tough. The snake’s teeth are necessary to pull the matter apart. If your clog is a result of something not so tough but thick and gluey like bacon grease for instance we would utilize out hydro jet technique. Hydro jets function by powering strong swirls of water down your pipes, clearing the way and cleaning the pipes bone clean in the process. This method is so effective you won’t see us again for a long time. We’re basically going to leave you with brand new pipes!
