It is easy to forget how many drains there are in a modern plumbing system. Most are out of sight, invisible until you look for them, or until they are clogged. For every place where wastewater flows out of the house, there are several drains and several yards of drain lines. In good shape, with good drainage, wastewater flows freely to the sewer or to the septic system.
When that flow becomes restricted, worse still, when that flow becomes blocked you have problems throughout the system. Sinks, tubs, showers and one other, especially important plumbing convenience (one no one wants clogged) don’t drain as they should. A clogged drain, far enough down the drain line is enough to back up the whole system.
There are a number of solutions to clogged drain and sewer lines, including hydrojetting which you can read more about here.
Why Is My Drain Clogged?
Clogged drains can happen for a handful of reasons, many of them preventable. The usual suspects include food particles, cooking grease, hair, small pieces of soap, excess toilet paper or paper towel, and feminine hygiene products. In some cases, children will become curious and send small toys and similar items into your plumbing system, causing clogs. If you are able to limit these kinds of items from getting into your drains, you’ll also be able to limit the number of drain clogs in your home.
Outside the house, tree roots are a common cause of clogged drains. As the root systems spread out, they are constantly seeking water, and quite often that water is inside your underground pipes. As the roots crowd your pipes, they can grow into small cracks and cause serious blockages.
Common Signs of a Clogged Drain
On the obvious side, water not emptying into drains or coming up in nearby drains are signs you need professional drain cleaning. Less obvious signs include gurgling sounds, drains that empty slower than normal or unpleasant odors around kitchen and bathroom drains. If you notice these signs, it’s a good idea to call the experts at Ross Plumbing to come out to perform the drain cleaning you need.
Keep Chemicals Out of Your Drains
Household drain clogs will always bring out the DIYers among us, and while using a plunger is a great way to loosen a mild clog, pouring copious amounts of chemicals into your drain is not. Common drain cleaning chemicals may provide some relief in the short term, but they won’t eliminate the problem, and they might damage your pipes. If you’re unsure, make the call for professional drain cleaning service.
