Getting The Clog Out Of Your Drains: 3 Problems That May Be Hiding Deep In Drains

Blog

Clogged drains can be another problem that you have to deal with in your home. This can sometimes be as simple as a slow draining kitchen sink or other problems in your home. Slow drains may seem to be a minor problem at first, but the problem could be something deeper in your drain lines. Here are some of the problems that can be hiding deep in the drain lines of your home:

1. The Toy That Has Traveled Into The Main Drain Lines

Do you have children that like to carry an array of toys to the bath? This can be a problem when small toys and pieces get washed down the drain. Sometimes, the toy may only make it to the bend in the tub drain, but other times it they can make it deep into the drain lines. This can be a problem that can eventually cause your plumbing to become backed up. A professional drain cleaning service can use a camera to find the problem and a snake or other device to remove the toy from the drain to prevent further problems.

2. Roots And Drainage Problems Causing You Plumbing Headaches

Trees are the enemy of drainage and sewer lines. When you have a tree that is too close to your pipes, the roots find their way in and create balls of growth in the drain line. This can cause your plumbing to be slow and eventually completely block a line. Sewer jetting and other methods of cleaning the lines can be a good solution to solve the problem. If you have roots cleaned out of the lines, it is also important to address the problem with trees that are planted too close to sewer lines.

3. Old Drainage Pipes And Buildup Causing Slow Draining Plumbing And Clogs

There are also many plumbing problems that can come from drainage problems. This can be due to drain lines that empty into storm drains and have overflows connected to the sewer system. When a problem with drainage is causing plumbing problems, you may need the help of a professional drain cleaning service to locate the problem, clean drain tiles, and do other improvements to the drainage around your home.

These are some of the problems that you may find with your plumbing drains. If you need help ensuring that you are not going to have any surprises with your pipes, contact a drain cleaning service like Mr Rooter to clean the drains and return your plumbing back to normal.

Do you know when to call a plumber? I had it in my head that plumbing was a simple system in my home that I could manage myself, but quickly learned otherwise. After completing a bathroom renovation myself and having a few of the water and drain pipe connections fail, I quickly learned that it was one job that I should have left to a professional. My website offers you simple solutions to small plumbing issues and a short guide to help you determine if your best option is to call in the professional plumbers. Hopefully, my mistakes will help you learn what not to do in your home.
