Anywhere you have a slow running drain or a plugged drain we can help.
Slow Draining Sink
A sink that is draining slowly is a very common plumbing problem. Often the pop-up that is used to plug up the sink can collect a lot of hair and debris over time. To get the drain flowing smoothly again the debris needs to be cleaned out. One way to do this is to remove the pop-up and clean it out. Most pop-ups are held in place with a nut attached to the drain just under the sink and can be unscrewed by hand or with pliers. Once the nut is removed the pop up can be cleaned and then reinstalled. If you opt for professional plumbing maintenance, your plumber will take care of this for you.
Slow Draining Tub
A slow draining tub is another very common plumbing problem that can be easily fixed. Often the tub drain is full of hair which slows the water down as it drains out of the tub. If there is a tub stopper in the drain you may have to remove it before getting to the hair clog. It is a good idea to clear out the debris in the tub drain on a regular basis even if the tub is not draining slowly. If it is left too long it could end up clogging the drain completely. If you opt for professional plumbing maintenance, your plumber will take care of this for you.
Slow or Clogged Drains
When the water that goes into your sink, tub or toilet won’t go out, you probably have a partial or complete clog. In many cases, your trusty plunger can fix the problem. Plungers use air pressure to dislodge a clog, but they can’t remove it entirely. Commercial drain cleaners and clog removers are safe for most drains for occasional use, but these caustic materials can damage some pipe materials if used too frequently. If you’re dealing with clogs on a regular basis, it’s time to call a pro. You should also let that professional know that you have used a commercial drain cleaner as it burns the skin if touched.
What Could be the Cause of that Plugged Drain?
Well for starters it is best not to pour oily liquids into your drains. This builds up around the outside edges of your pipes until it finally becomes such a small opening that not much gets through. Save that oily liquid for the garbage can and save your drain.
For those homeowners with a garburator you should never garburate stringy foods over overstuff the garburator. And always use water when running the garburator before, during, and for at least a minute afterwards.
