Let’s face it, clogged drains,
plugged-up toilets and unpleasant smells coming from the kitchen sink
are not the highlights of someone’s life. They mean that something
is going wrong and will probably get worse. It may be a quick and
easy fix by the homeowner or involve more extensive work by an
How do you know when it’s time
to call a plumber? Sometimes it’s very obvious, but not always.
Here are some of the things to look for.
* The first sign of trouble is
usually slow draining. When it takes endless minutes for the sink to
empty, this can be an indication of several different problems.
Mineral and grease buildup may be to blame. It could even be caused
by something as difficult to discover as an improperly graded
drainage system. The primary cause of the problem will need to be
discovered by an experienced plumber.
* Bathroom drains get clogged
with hair, soap residue or toothpaste washing down the drain. If
someone is frequently cleaning out the drain, it implies that a lot
more has passed through and is collecting somewhere within the
plumbing system. At some point, it will form a mass that can’t be
cleaned out by the homeowner.
* Toilets can get clogged with
just about anything, it seems. Too much toilet paper, feminine
hygiene products, baby wipes or even kid’s toys are only a few of
the things that can clog up a toilet.
* If there is a slow drainage
problem or clog in more than one sink or toilet, the problem may be
somewhere in the main drain system. Plungers or chemicals cannot fix
this problem. Professional drain cleaning will be needed to identify
and fix it. Tree roots or broken sewer pipes might be involved.
* When sewer odors are smelling
up the house, this indicates a serious problem with sewer drainage.
* Flooding water is an emergency
situation, calling for an immediate phone call to schedule Drain
