Clogged Drain

Many homeowners today prefer to fix minor clogs themselves.

However, a clogged drain can become a challenge.

If you think the clog is just simply a build up of debris in the drain, you can probably use a plunger or some form of drain cleaner.

However, this may not be the final solution to the problem. A clogged drain can come from many different sources, such as tree branches, ancient piping, debris, or something dropped into the drain or toilet itself. If something like this has occurred, you may need to consider a plumber for the job.

If you have a clogged drain and you continue to plunge the drain and use a drain cleaner with no relief, you may actually cause damage to your pipes. Without knowing the source of the problem, you will not be able to solve the problem.

If you notice a continued drainage problem, call a professional plumber who is qualified to search out the problem and resolve it.

For example, if you have tree branches growing into the outside sewer pipes, a professional plumber will use special equipment such as a snake. A snake turns as it is inserted into the pipe and breaks apart branches that are blocking the flow of refuge.

A clogged drain may also result when something is dropped into it. If you have a toilet that is clogged, it may be because something was flushed down and is now lodged in the drain. A professional plumber will more than likely have to remove the toilet to retrieve the object and then replace the “donut” and the toilet.

If you are like most people who have no idea what a “donut” or "wax ring" is or how to replace it, you should call a plumber rather than do the job yourself.

Unplugging clogged drains is a typical day in the life of a plumber.
