Most homeowners take pride in having some basic DIY repair skills, especially when something as simple as a clogged drain pops up. Only, sometimes these problems really aren’t all that simple. It's a relief to know that the experts in San Diego Drain Repair at Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air are available 24/7 for emergency plumbing service just in case that stopped-up drain has you baffled.
San Diego Drain Clearing & Cleaning
Think twice before using drain clearing products
Perhaps you’ve tackled the clog with a store bought drain cleaning product and it worked at first, but then the clog came back. The problem is that drain cleaning products that are used continuously to unclog drains will damage the surface of your drain pipes and cause corrosion. You really need to contact the experts in drain clearing and cleaning before you do more damage than good.
Finding the drain blockage
It is entirely possible that the drain that is clogged is not even the one with the blockage. Most people are not aware that the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry drains are connected in multiple places. A clog in one can potentially affect the others. A professional would be able to identify and repair the original problem spot in your drainage system and make sure the job is done properly the first time.
Sewer and Drain Video Inspection
Sewer video inspections help find the problem
When a sewer or drain backs up, one of the best things you can do is have a plumbing video inspection done so that you can be sure of what is causing the problem. There is no point in replacing a drain pipe for your sewage system, for instance, if the cause of the pipe failing is some tree roots intruding in the area. In the image above, we found that a previous plumber had actually clogged the pipe 80% with plumber's putty! If you have a backed-up drain that has you stumped and you need a San Diego drain repair professional, don’t hesitate to contact us today to avoid further, costly damage…
