There are many drains in your home that can become clogged for a variety of reasons. If you find that you are experiencing chronic drain clogs, or a drain clog just won’t clear the master plumbers at Rivers Plumbing, Heating and Air can perform a camera inspection of your plumbing system to identify the cause. Sometimes tree roots can infiltrate a plumbing system under the ground and cause serious problems through the entire system.
Some of the more common drain blockages include:
- Bathroom and Kitchen Sink Drains – In the kitchen things like soap, grease, and food particles are rinsed down the drain or into the garbage disposal. All of this mixes together in the pipes and creates a sludge that can adhere to the inside of the pipes like a paste. Over time, this residue builds up and eventually reduces the diameter of the pipe causing the water to flow much slower than it used to. This same things happens in the bathroom when toothpaste, bath and body products, hair, and soap are rinsed down the drain. Some signs that your drain might be clogged or, will be soon are: water backing up out of the drain and into the sink, slow draining water, gurgling sounds from the drain, a bad odor coming from the drain. All of these signs are reason to call for professional plumbing support. Sometimes a clogged drain is just a symptom of a bigger problem so, it is always important to have an expert take a look.
- Bathtub and Shower Drains – The number one cause of clogs in the bathtub or shower is hair. While other organic matter is rinsed down the drain such as soap, shampoo, and shaving cream these products take time to build up before they will cause a clog. Whereas, adults loose up to 200 strands of hair every day and much of that is lost while showering. These large clumps of hair are then rinsed down the drain and quickly back up the drain. When these clogs occur it is best not to use over the counter caustic chemicals as they can create weakness or corrosion in your pipes. Signs of a clogged bathtub or shower drain clog are water backing up, water draining very slowly, and gurgling noises coming from the drain.
