Drain Problems? Call Our San Diego Drain Cleaning Experts!

Most people don’t think about drain cleaning until they need it. After all, your home’s pipes are largely unseen – so that means they’re working properly, right? Not always. If your plumbing has recurrent problems (water pooling up in your shower, etc.), it’s time to get a professional diagnosis. A small clog in your toilet, sink, or bathtub might not seem like an issue that requires professional help, but severe clogs can indicate larger problems with your plumbing. That’s where we come in.

How to know when it’s time to call a professional drain cleaner:

  • Your drain makes funny sounds (gurgling, etc.)
  • Recurring problems
  • Inefficient draining
  • Unpleasant odors

What You Get When You Hire a San Diego Plumbing Services Expert

First and foremost, a professional plumber can offer experience that most homeowners will never have. After all, drain clearing (among other services) is what we do every day! A skilled technician can help you identify the cause and scope of the issue, so you can rest assured it’ll be completely taken care of. In addition to experience, our team has access to equipment that many homeowners don’t. This includes equipment for not only removing clogs, but identifying them too – such as video equipment that lets us conduct camera inspections to find clogs. At Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air, we unclog pipes with both traditional snaking and more advanced techniques, such as hydrojetting.

Safety first! Keep in mind that do-it-yourself drain cleaning techniques aren’t safe unless handled properly. Strong chemicals can become harmful in small spaces, and even tools bought in-store can pose safety and damage risks without the right training.

The Best Drain Clog Remover is a Professional Plumber

While it'd be great to avoid a clogged drain altogether, the fact is drain problems happen. To ensure you’re taking care of your home’s plumbing system properly, get in touch with the best clogged drain cleaner you can find: San Diego’s trusted pluming company, Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air.

Is DIY clogged drain cleaning & repair a good idea?

Not always. In fact, most unclogging products can actually corrode your pipes after repeated use. Additionally, over-the-counter drain cleaning products typically only solve drainage problems temporarily. Most of the time, these products only clear out enough of the clog to allow the chemical solution to pass through the pipes; they don’t actually take care of the whole issue like a plumber could. On top of that, they are – more often than not – potentially harmful to the environment.

By using harsh chemicals over and over again, well-meaning DIYers can inadvertently create long-term issues with their home’s plumbing systems. Other times, the drain with the backup isn’t even the drain that’s really obstructed. Because the pipes in your house are connected, it’s possible that a clog in one location will cause water and sewage to back up in another area of the house. Unfortunately, you can’t detect these types of problems with a DIY drain cleaning solution; you need the help of a professional plumber in San Diego.

“Your receptionist, Hayley, actually listened to what I was saying what my problem was. Unlike 5 others I called. The correct technician was sent, Tim D., with the proper equipment brought by his supervisor Jose C. They cleared my line and to make sure Ricardo S. scoped the line with his camera. What a great team.” - John C.

Tips & Advice

Tips & Advice From Our Experts

  • Does Your Sewer Pipe Have a Paunch?
    As a drain specialist, I can promise a sewage backup is almost always caused by some kind of problem with the pipe. A common cause for sewer backup is a belly in the pipe. Bellies tend to worsen over time (but sometimes very quickly) due to leakage at misaligned connections that erode the pipe bedding. Waste and paper will collect in the pool and build up, creating a dam which will lead to continual stoppages. Most of the material in a sewer line can be removed when we clean the main line, but it will build right back up. Water will continue to leak out of the bad connections, further eroding the bedding of the pipe and the belly will continue to worsen. This can progress from pipe belly to collapse.

  • Easy DIY for Better AC & Heating Efficiency
    No need to call a heating and air conditioning repair or installation contractor for this easy task. Simply purchase a new air filter and replace the current one. Your air quality and efficiency will be improved by this simple step. Be sure to check your air filter every 30 days during summer use, and replace it when needed.

  • How to Care for Your Water Heater
    A water heater is a costly investment, and very few homeowners know how to care for them. With proper maintenance, you can extend the life of the equipment, lower utility costs and minimize the risk damages caused by a leaking water tank. A water heater flush is a fairly simple procedure that removes the buildup of sediment in the tank. To avoid problems and increase the life of the water heater, a flush is recommended every six months. There should always be clear access to the water heater, and keep pertinent information easily accessible. For instance, is your heater gas, electric or propane? Keeping the serial and model numbers readily available will also help address any warranty questions easily. Take care of your water heater and enjoy nice, warm showers for a long time!

  • How Long Does Concrete Sewer Pipe Last?
    Some sewer pipe is made from Concrete. Typically, this type of concrete pipe lasts a long time, but we do see problems start at the connections due to ground settling or tree root intrusion. Concrete pipe is susceptible to cracks – just like a concrete sidewalk – particularly when stressed from tree roots or offsets. The average lifespan of concrete sewer lines, before you start to encounter stoppage problems, is 30 years. The most common reasons for sewer line stoppages with concrete lines include offsets at connections and breaking pipe due to tree roots and ground settling.

  • Is PVC and ABS Piping Bad?
    Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) piping were produced experimentally in the 19th century, hit the US in the 1950’s, and is most commonly used in today's sewer systems. While PVC or ABS pipe can last for decades, the thin-walled pipe can be damaged by inadequate bedding/fill or ground settling and heavy root growth. Once a section of plastic pipe is damaged, the other connections may deteriorate over time or roots will damage another section of the line. This type of piping can last a long time if it is a quality pipe and the installation was done properly. Thinner-walled pipe flexes and is more susceptible to premature problems.
