Clogged Drains & Water Backups
Draino® not cutting it?
Sometimes addressing a problem with standing water in your shower basin or sink bowl is only a temporary or partial fix. Meanwhile, harsh chemicals are harming the drain rim and filling your home with toxins.
Drains can become clogged deep in the p-trap (the gooseneck shaped fitting under the drain) with non-dissolvable items including sand and other sediments. Chemical solvents are ineffective in these situations. Snaking or hydro jetting the drain lines, dismantling them for clean-out, and checking the ventilation system for clogs are some of the solutions we suggest.
Continuous plumbing issues may also be the result of design or installation flaws, including poor ventilation. Properly installed plumbing fixtures work with gravity to drain away wastewater, not against it. Some newer p-traps are manufactured with clean-out drains that can be easily accessed and emptied to restore drainage.
If your plumbing fixtures are not set up this way, we can help. We update older plumbing pipes that don’t have these convenience features, so you don’t have to call a plumber every time a drain clogs…unless you want to.
