As shelter-in-place orders continue, your plumbing is put under an inordinate amount of stress. With an increase in use, comes more opportunities for misuse and malfunction. That’s why we here at Brownie’s Septic & Plumbing are here to educate you all on the signs your plumbing is headed towards breakdown, so you can identify a problem before it becomes a fiasco and have one less thing to worry about during these challenging times.
You Have Recurring Consecutive Clogs
If you feel as though you are combating clogs left and right, your plumbing is trying to communicate that your sewer line is compromised. If your clogs are occurring simultaneously, contact a plumbing professional ASAP, as clogging is deep into your drainage system and needs skilled removal. For streamlined drain cleaning and clog eradication, schedule video pipe inspection.
With this service, your technician will be able to see hard-to-reach plumbing channels without having to excavate your backyard. With video pipe inspection, your clog will be located and removed with efficiency and speed, so you can get back to what matters most right now— your family.
You Are Experiencing Frequent Back-Ups
Notice gurgling water in your shower or sinks after you flush or use the dishwasher? If so, you have a completely blocked pipe. When this occurs, the water in your plumbing network has nowhere to go but back up your drains. Your water is not evacuating your pipes as it should be, lending to this problematic plumbing scenario. In order to eliminate back-up, you will need to have your drains professionally cleaned.
To reduce your chances of back-up returning, follow these preventive steps:
Don’t pour oil down your drains.
Keep starches, fibrous vegetables, nuts, coffee grounds, and meat bones out of your garbage disposal.
Only flush water, waste, and toilet paper down your plumbing.
Close drains when taking off jewelry to avoid obstructions from lost valuables.
Practice regular maintenance on your plumbing.
You Have Slow Drainage
Although most slow drainage is caused by clogged piping, tree root infiltration, crushed pipes, or sludge build-up can lead to this issue as well. Video pipe inspection will ascertain the cause of your slow drainage quickly and safely. With a minimalistic approach, this diagnostic technology will pinpoint the exact location of your plumbing problem and allow the plumber on the job to conduct repairs in a swift and non-invasive manner.
