A clean, well-maintained drain is a vital part of your plumbing setup. It helps keep your water flowing the way it should and ensures that what you send down the drain doesn’t come back. But what can you do when your water pressure starts to drop and your drains stop draining?
Every day we send hair, food and small bits of waste products down our pipes. While this isn’t normally a big issue it eventually leads to blockages which can cause poor water flow, a backup in your pipes and damage to your plumbing system.
When a blockage in your pipes starts to cause problems, it’s time for a good cleaning. We can put you in touch with a dedicated, certified drain cleaning professional in Mission Viejo any time day or night. So what are your options when it comes to pipe cleaning?
A plumbing snake, sometimes called a plumbers augur, consists of a long metal tube that holds an inner cable and has blades or a corkscrew attached to one end. This is attached to a manual or motorised crank that feeds the end into your pipes. When the snaking cable hits a blockage a little bit of manual force will either open up a hole through the clog, or the augur digs into the blockage and you can then simply pull it through. This can be a slow process and bigger blockages often need a lot of force to break through. Especially if one end has started to dry out due to lack of water flow.
While it may be possible to use a traditional plumbers snake to clear simple blockages, nothing gives quite the same results as a professional jet cleaning. A hydro jet cleaner is a high-pressure hose that can be attached to the terminal end of a pipe via a special nozzle. We then pump water at high pressure from a tank into the pipe. This pressure hits the blockage and pushes through, taking the waste and hair build-up with it. Rather than just making a hole that can quickly close up again this helps ensure your water runs properly for far longer without the need for another cleaning. And It doesn’t involve any harsh chemicals or caustic fluids.
