Why hire a professional plumber?
A professional plumber has the experience and tools to clear even the most stubborn clogs. To prevent the clog from coming back, it is important to identify the root cause of the problem. Clearing a drain using store-bought chemicals may work temporarily, but the issue will often come back within a week or two. Harsh chemicals pose a safety hazard, and they can also damage pipes and fixtures. If chemicals do not clear the drain, the resulting fix will be more complicated and expensive since the chemicals will still be a safety hazard inside the pipes.
A plumber will generally clear drains using a snake or jetter, depending on the type of drain and the extent of the problem. All Pro Plumbing Services can also use a drain inspection camera to see inside the drain and identify the cause of the problem. The most common causes of drain issues include:
- Solid items being flushed, including “flushable” wipes and feminine hygiene products.
- Offset pipes: Older pipes may be laid in 3-foot sections, and sections may not line up properly.
- Soap and hair build-up.
