Emergency Plumbers: The Best Solution for Clogged Drains
The most common reason Emergency Plumbers are called is to deal with the issue of clogged drains. This problem is not normally indicative of anything serious, but sinks, tubs and toilets that are not working properly can be an enormous nuisance and make daily life very frustrating. Removing a clog may not be as easy as some people may think and attempting to clear a drain on your own can actually lead to further problems if it is not done correctly. If a simple plunging is not taking care of the problem, calling a plumber is the best solution.
Clogged drains can be either solid waste matter that has filled the pipe, a collapse in the plumbing itself or tree roots that have invaded the pipe. Because it is impossible for the average person to know what the problem may be, products like drain snakes may actually make it worse. If not used correctly they can damage older pipes, can scratch the finish of the fixture where it is being used and can even be dangerous.
Chemical drain cleaners are also not recommended by most plumbing experts. They can melt plastic, dissolve older metal pipes and are caustic to the skin. If the clog is not cleared, the chemical will be left in the drain too close to the surface. This is a safety hazard for any home, especially those with pets and children.
Emergency Plumbers have a lot more knowledge, experience and tools at their disposal. They will look for signs of problems like noise in the lines, leaks in common areas and trees too close to where outside sewer and water lines are located. They will be able to easily diagnose most problems and have equipment available to help them discover more challenging situations.
