It’s too simple to ignore a clogged drain and carry on your normal routine. After all, it’s just a small inconvenience, right? It may seem minor at first, but a slow drain can lead to serious—costly—issues. The cause of your slow drain could be a clog, or grease buildup that’s narrowing your pipes, or several other regular problems. Strand Brothers can help you find the root of your obstruction and get it repaired before you end up with leaking—or worse, broken—pipes and a water-damaged house.
We’ll utilize a high-tech video drain inspector that can help us understand what’s going on in your pipes. Our video scopes make it easy to find the source of any plumbing issues you’re facing, know where they are and establish the best solution to address the situation. Plus, the high-definition capabilities allow us to gain the best look at the inside of your pipes to know if there are any issues that need to be addressed that usually may not have revealed themselves.
Clogs can manifest themselves in an individual fixture having issues with backing up or draining slowly, or you may find that you have numerous fixtures backing up—which usually indicates you have a clog in your main drain system - common issue in Austin. Here are some things you can do to prevent clogs from happening.
- Clean drain stoppers and invest in a hair-straining drain trap.
- Don’t flush materials that do not dissolve or break apart in water, such as feminine products or baby wipes.
- Don’t dispose of grease or oil down your drains.
- Be sure your plumbing vent pipe on your roof stays free of obstructions.
Despite the best preventive measures, you may end up with a clog in your plumbing system and find yourself in need of a drain cleaning. You can rest easy though, because Strand Brothers has the knowledge and the tools needed to clear any sort of clog that’s causing plumbing problems in your home.
