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.
- Your drain makes funny sounds (gurgling, etc.)
- You are experiencing recurring problems
- Your drains are inefficiently draining
- Unpleasant odors are coming from your drains
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.
Types of Clogged Drain Services We Offer:
Our drain repair team is ready to tackle virtually any type of clogged drain. A few of the most common drains that need clearing include:
- Bathroom Drains - Bathroom clogs include more than just toilets (although toilet clogs are one of the most inconvenient!) In fact, it’s not unusual for bathroom sinks and showers to experience clogs as well.
- Kitchen Drains- If your garbage disposal or kitchen sink becomes clogged, our team can help! Additionally, we can diagnose slow-draining dishwashers (although the culprit for standing water in a dishwasher may not always be a clogged drain, but an issue with the unit itself).
- Laundry Drains - Like kitchen and bathroom drains, your laundry drain is probably connected to other areas of the house, and may even cause backups in the bathroom, kitchen, etc. That’s why we’re prepped to diagnose clogs of every type - including those caused by your washing machine.
How to Prevent Clogged Drains
- Use a “drain strainer” in your kitchen sink and shower to catch food scraps, hair, etc.
- Avoid putting anything but dissolvable liquids down the drain
- Know what foods can and cannot go down the drain
- Don’t put starchy or sticky foods down your garbage disposal (like pasta or rice)
- Avoid “temporary” solutions for a slow drain (such as a liquid clog remover, which won’t solve a long-term problem)
- Use liquid soap when possible (bar soap can harden in the shower drain and clog it!)
- Pour boiling water down drains where you use bar soap to melt potential clogs

What You Get When You Hire a San Diego Drain Cleaning 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.

Why Not Use Chemical Drain Cleaners?
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.
Finding the Drain Blockage
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. In fact, most people are not aware that the kitchen plumbing, bathroom, and laundry drains are connected in multiple places.
Unfortunately, you can’t detect these types of problems with a DIY drain cleaning solution; you need the help of a professional plumber. A drain cleaning expert 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.
Renting an Auger
If you’re handy around the house, you might be tempted to rent an auger (also called a “snake”) and clear the line yourself. This also comes with some serious risks, so be extremely 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.
Importance of Sewer and Drain Video Inspections
When a sewer or drain backs up, one of the best things you can do is have a 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.
We even found a clog once where 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.
