We’ve all encountered it, that clogged shower drain, the toilet that just won’t flush. Regardless of what it is, clogs can cause headaches, and may even be more than just a minor nuisance. It’s important to address these issues immediately so they don’t spiral into larger problems, and potentially cost you more money in the long run.
Though technically any pipe or waterway within your home can get clogged, some are more common than others. Chances are you’ll run across one or more of these during your home-owning years.
Many things can clog your toilet, but if the typical plunging is not helping your clog clear, the issue may lie further within the pipes, or in the sewer line itself.
Kitchen Sink Clogs
Kitchen sink clogs are common when food particles and other objects get washed down the drain. Typically the garbage disposal will clear this issue right up, however, if the source of the clog is further down in the pipeline, it may not be so easily solved.
Shower Drain Clogs
A common culprit for shower drain clogs is excess hair that is shed while washing off. A drain snake might clear this up, but if that isn’t the case, the problem might be deeper in the pipes.
Clogs are a nuisance themselves, but if not taken care of immediately, they can cause bigger issues like busted pipes, leaks, and property damage. Taking the time to handle clogs immediately when they occur can save you from the struggle of dealing with these larger issues, and can end up saving you money in the long run as well.
Regardless of your clog, if you cannot clear it up yourself, contact the experts at Active Plumbing to take care of it today.
