The Benefits Of High-Pressure Drain Cleaning

Slow draining, clogged toilets, and gurgling sinks are all signs of a plumbing system that needs high-pressure drain cleaning. Sometimes traditional methods don’t work and could even damage the home’s plumbing system. Don’t wait until it’s convenient to get this taken care of — or you could end up with serious water damage.

The Causes of a Clogged Drain

A clog can be made up of fats, oils, grease, hygiene products, hair, soap scum, toothpaste, and wet wipes. To prevent a clog, follow these tips:

  • Never pour grease down the drain.
  • Throw hardened grease into the trash bin.
  • Never flush tampons, pads, or even flushable wipes down the drain.
  • Install hair traps or guards in sinks and shower drains.

Tree roots are another potential cause of a clogged drain. They can infiltrate weak, damaged, or broken pipes and grow until the pipe is blocked and unable to drain properly. In these cases, you’ll need to call Tucker Hill for professional service.

Signs of a Clogged Drain

You may have a clogged drain if you notice the following:

  • Gurgling noise coming from a drain
  • Water or sewage backing up
  • Slow-draining shower and tub
  • Foul odor coming from a drain
  • Water bubbling in the toilet when using the bathroom sink
  • Frequent issues with the plumbing system
  • Water utilities triggering each other

What to Expect During Drain Cleaning

During drain cleaning, a licensed plumber will use a jet nozzle with high water pressure to break up and push out the debris clogging the pipe. This method can clean all types of drains: sink, toilet, shower, laundry, and floor drains.

Unlike other methods of unclogging a drain, high-pressure drain cleaning clears the entire pipe, not just the clog.

Other benefits of high-pressure drain cleaning include:

  • Faster than other methods. Snaking can take a while and deliver poor results.
  • No damage. No digging or drilling required; safer for the plumbing system.
  • Environmentally friendly. No need to pour a chemical-based drain cleaner.

Drain cleaning is best left to the professionals. If you’ve got a clog that refuses to budge, call Tucker Hill for professional plumbing service and high-pressure drain cleaning.
