How to Deal With Clogged Drains
Clogged and slow drains are one of the most common plumbing issues that face homeowners because of all of the debris that goes down our drains. Before you call a plumber, there are a few remedies you can try to make your drains flow freely again.
- Plungers: The tried and true plunger is what most people reach for to unclog a drain.
- Baking Soda & Vinegar: Mix ⅓ cup of baking soda and ⅓ cup of vinegar and pour the solution down the drain. Let it sit for about an hour and then flush the drain.
- Boiling Water: Sometimes, pouring boiling water down the drain is enough to remove the obstruction.
- Drain Cleaners: Another popular method for clearing drains is the chemical drain cleaner. However, use caution because these products can damage older pipes causing them to burst.
If all else fails, call a plumber for professional drain cleaning.
Old pipes are prone to corrosion and leaks. Our repiping service provides you with new, long-lasting plumbing.
What Causes Pipes to Leak?
Another common problem plumbers deal with is leaking and dripping pipes. But what causes these leaks in the first place? Sometimes, high water pressure damages pipes to the point of failure. Also, corrosion plagues older pipes made from galvanized steel and other materials. If you notice dripping pipes or water damage, call a plumber right away to minimize the damage.

After assessing the problem customer had slow moving kitchen drain with bad smell coming from drain line. I advised customer what was needed to clear drain and also remove old reverse osmosis system customer wanted to get rid of. I removed old system and began snaking drain line from opened pipe I made to remove discharge line from. I found large amounts of grease in horizontal connection between double compartment sink. I snaked to basement to ensure blockage was removed. I also applied camera in drain all the way to city connection. I had found that large tree was on city side and could possibly intrude clay piping. Highly recommend backwater valve to be installed.
