Drain Services in San Diego 

Most of your home’s drains and pipes are inside walls, in basements or crawl spaces, or buried underground. Because these lines are hidden from view, they are also typically ignored until a problem arises. Sometimes, when water drains slowly, it’s a temporary problem that can be fixed with a home remedy. However, if slow draining is a chronic problem, it’s time to get a professional’s diagnosis.

Contact us for fast, reliable drain services in San Diego.

It’s likely time to call a professional drain cleaner if you notice any of these problems:

  • Drain Makes Gurgling Noises
  • Water Drains Slowly
  • Unpleasant Odors are Emited
  • You Experiece Reoccuring Problems

Minor clogs may not require a professional’s help, but severe or multiple small clogs can indicate that your plumbing has more extensive problems. If you need help with your drains, contact Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air. We clean drains in San Diego and get to the root of the problem. 

3 Commonly Clogged Drains

We can tackle any type of clogged drain. Here are a few of the most common residential drains we clear:

  1. Bathroom Drains: Toilet clogs are the most inconvenient and frustrating. It is common for bathroom sinks and showers to also experience clogs. 
  2. Kitchen Drains: If your garbage disposal gets stuck or your kitchen drain gets clogged, we can help! We can also diagnose slow-draining dishwashers (though often the culprit of standing water in the dishwasher is the unit itself). 
  3. Laundry Drains:  Your laundry drain is connected to your plumbing system. If it drains slowly, it may be clogged with a sock or lint, or perhaps there’s a problem with your vent pipes.

Why Not Use Chemical Drain Cleaners?

Unfortunately, most drain cleaning products can corrode your pipes with repeated use. These liquid and gel solutions use a variety of chemicals and chemical reactions to eat through clogs in your pipes. Sometimes, these chemical reactions can cause extreme heat, and that heat can damage or crack your pipes. 

Drain cleaning products are often only a temporary bandaid on something that will be a recurring problem. The more they are used, the more damage they do to your pipes. On top of all that, they are often very harmful to the environment.

Renting an Auger 

Homeowners may not have professional drain cleaning equipment, but you can rent things like an auger, also known as a drain snake. Those who are handy around the house may be tempted to rent an auger and attempt to clear a line themselves.

This does come with some risks, so it’s essential to be informed and cautious. Not only could you end up damaging your pipes, but augers can cause injuries when they aren’t used properly by a professional plumber.

The Importance of Sewer and Drain Video Inspections

When a sink drains slowly, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the blockage is directly from that sink. Many of our drains are interconnected in the house. A dishwasher, kitchen sink, and washing machine can all be on the same drain line. 

A single clog can cause multiple drain lines to back up or drain slowly. Unfortunately, diagnosing where a blockage is can be difficult to ascertain with standard DIY drain cleaning equipment. That’s why you’ll need the help of a professional with specialized equipment. 

When a sewer or drain line backs up, one of the best ways to determine the cause of a clogged drain is to have a professional plumber perform a video inspection. Video inspections make diagnosing the problem significantly more straightforward. Once the root cause is known, our plumbers can choose the best solution. 
For example, a drain clogged with fats and oils will be cleaned differently than one invaded with tree roots. The plumbers at Anderson are experts in drainage video camera inspections in San Diego. We can identify your problem and clear your drains ASAP.

“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.”
