Your home’s plumbing can experience problems sometimes, especially when it comes to your drain system. The drain system is responsible for carrying waste and waste water to the septic tank in your yard. If you find yourself dealing with a lot of clogs and other issues that are causing you to be uncomfortable living in your own home, there might be an issue with a drain.
Stephens’ plumbing professionals are available 24/7 to perform all of your drain related needs.
Our professionals use a long snake attached to a very small video camera to perform a video pipeline inspection. The camera is put down the drain to find the exact location of your problem. The main reason for this type of inspection to be done is that it can help to save you money. Once our experts use this inspection to know right where the issue is, they can work exclusively on that spot without having to remove and potentially damage other areas of your pipeline.
You can definitely prevent drain clogs from happening, and the easiest way to do this is to avoid putting things in the toilet or sink that should not go there. If you have leftover food in the kitchen sink, you can throw these away rather than forcing them down the drain. When flushing your toilet, ensure that everything you are flushing is biodegradable and could not cause clogs and other issues in the future. The best method to get rid of clogs is to simply prevent them altogether.
If you are dealing with a clog that you have tried to remedy by yourself without any success, it might be time to contact our professionals. We will send our experts to do the work for you, making sure that your home’s plumbing and drain system work as intended at all times.
A few things that can cause some serious drain issues at home. Most commonly would be flushing things down the drains that should not be there. Some individuals put cat litter in the toilet, others will put ear swabs or rubber items down the toilet. Paper towels and heavy napkins can also cause clogs down the road, because they do not break down as easily as actual toilet paper. Many people also risk hair clogging up their drain system if there are multiple people living in the home.
