When to Call Our San Marcos Drain Cleaning Pros

When your drains are flowing smoothly, you probably don’t even think about them. Yet if your drains begin to move slowly over time, you could be dealing with a problem. However, whether your drains are slow or not, you should still watch out for the signs of potential drain issues. Waiting to see if you have a clog can result in nasty backups, that may in turn cause extensive damage to your plumbing system and property at large.

You may want to call our San Marcos drain cleaning team for service if:

  • Your drains are making strange gurgling or bubbling sounds
  • Your drains are inefficient or moving slowly
  • You have noticed nasty smells wafting from your drains
  • Your drains require frequent repairs or maintenance

Are chemical drain cleaners safe for pipes?

Chemical drain cleaners like Drano and Green Gobbler may be useful as short-term solutions to clear up a slow drain; however, these types of drain cleaning products can actually harm your home’s plumbing system over time. In fact, chemical drain cleaners can even melt plastic pipes. Although you may be tempted to use chemical drain cleaners to get rid of clogs, this is not a great idea. Not only are these store-bought solutions usually extremely toxic, but they can also eat away at your pipes, making your plumbing system worse in the long run. Continued use of heavy-duty cleaners may erode your pipes, leading to long-term damage.

Having your drains cleaned professionally by a plumber is a better option because it eliminates the source of the problem and can help your drains stay unclogged for longer - and without damaging your plumbing!

What Our Professional Drain Cleaners Can Do for You

At Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air, we offer drain cleaning in San Marcos to get rid of obstructions deep within your system. Even tree roots do not stand a chance with our industry-leading drain cleaning equipment. We also offer hi-tech camera inspections, in order to identify clogs in your drains before they get out of control. From your toilet to your sink to your bathtub, blockages can indicate larger issues within your plumbing and sewer lines, so if you believe you have a clog on your hands, make sure to call us ASAP.

Our drain cleaning services include:

  • Snaking and hydrojetting
  • Shower/tub drain cleaning
  • Sink drain cleaning

Snaking vs. Hydrojetting

  • Hydro-jetting uses up to 3500 PSI to remove buildup from the inside of your home’s plumbing or sewer lines. Commonly, hydrojetting is used to remove grease or tree roots, making it a powerful way to effectively clean out clogged pipes. Additionally, this type of drain cleaning is strong enough to clear out commercial and residential sewer lines.
  • Snaking, on the other hand, is a tried-and-true drain cleaning method used to get rid of basic clogs. Although snaking is an effective method for unclogging many blockages in sewer lines and pipes, it is also gentle and is unlikely to damage even old, fragile pipes.

Tips & Advice

Tips & Advice From Our Experts

  • How Accurate Are Phone Quotes for Water Heater Installs?

    Be wary of a company that is willing to price quote water heater replacement or new installation over the phone. It is difficult to give an accurate price without seeing the water heater installation site first.

    There are many variables that affect pricing, and the type of installation is unique to each project. The type of unit a homeowner currently has, what they want to replace it with, and what changes are needed to bring the installation up to current code are all factors. Codes change regularly and water heaters must always be installed to code. Over the phone, you're likely to get a low-ball price, but when the technician arrives and assess the circumstances, the price could change substantially. Best to have the technician analyze your install site first, so you know the real cost up-front!

  • Do You Have Dirty Sock Syndrome?

    Associated with residential split systems, the term “Dirty Socks Syndrome” describes an odor generated by environmental fungi and/or bacteria that accumulate on the indoor coil. They can be ‘activated’ by the combination of moisture and heat commonly produced in air conditioning system operation.

    Dirty Socks Syndrome can vary from mildly offensive odors described as smelling like old hair tonic, or moldy hay - to extremely offensive odors, often described in terms that would offend the more delicate sensitivities of the general public. “Dirty Socks” provides a good comparative description of the odor.

    Eliminating the contaminants would exclude the possibility of Dirty Socks Syndrome, whether or not the system is operating at or near design conditions. If you're experiencing Dirty Sock Syndrome, we're happy to advise on the best methods for removing the odor. Give us a call anytime!

  • 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.

  • What Causes Sewer Misalignment?

    Misalignments of sewer systems are frequently caused by ground settling which removes the bedding the pipe is laying in. Over time, the misalignment will allow wastewater to leak out of the pipe, further eroding the bed of the pipe and causing the misalignment to get worse.

    Ultimately, it will result in more severe misalignment or full collapse. This can take a while or it can happen pretty quickly.

  • Tree Roots Collapse Sewer
    Nothing good ever happens when roots invade your drain or sewer line. While the tree roots inside your pipe may be small initially, the root system is fed generously and can cause major (and more costly) damage as they continue to grow and strengthen. What will certainly occur is root penetration will increase, causing a larger and larger separation. This will result in the two pipe sections separating more, causing wastewater to leak out and erode the base underneath the connection. This progression can lead to a full collapse of the sewer line.
