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

  • Exercise Your Plumbing Fixtures!
    All faucets and valves in your home should be regularly exercised to keep them from freezing in place. For instance, a single handle shower valve may become mineralized and calcified causing it to not function correctly when called upon. Just like you and me, regular exercise keeps our bodies functioning at a higher level than if we sat doing nothing every day. Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air can visit your home, check the valves throughout your home, and advise you of any options or possible repairs that need to be considered now or in the near future. An ounce of prevention can mean the difference between having a functioning shower valve in the spare bathroom when guests arrive or having to call a plumber.

  • 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.

  • Improper Ducting Can Destroy Your HVAC System...And Your Utility Savings!
    Ductwork is one of the most overlooked, but most important components of your heating and air conditioning system. When our Project Managers come to do an engineering analysis, they will use Duct-a-Lator to ensure that your system is sized properly and is using the proper CFM or cubic feet per minute. When ducts are undersized they will cause system breakdowns and significant loss of efficiency. Always make sure the ducting is checked when you have an AC or heater repair or replacement your HVAC system.

  • 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!
