Clogged Drains? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

A clogged drain is one of the most common reasons homeowners call plumbers. If you have a clogged drain, Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help.

If your mind wanders to that clogged drain in your kitchen or bathroom while you’re on your morning walk at Chinsegut, you’re probably not the only one.  Clogged drains are one of the most common reasons homeowners call a plumber for help. explains: “Hair, grease and tree roots are the most common causes of slow drains or clogs. You might add to those to the list things that should never have been flushed in the first place.

“If you can see hair in the tub or shower drain cover or screen, you can likely pull it out yourself with your fingers or a pair of needle-nose pliers. If not, remove the stoppers from the slow drains, and hair will usually come out with them.

“When it comes to a clogged toilet, use the plunger — the plumber’s friend — or an auger. Running hot water down a kitchen sink drain will usually melt grease, as well, as long as it hasn’t been building up for too long. If everything is at a standstill, though, or sewer water is backing up into the tub, tree roots could have found their way into your main sewer line. In that case, there should be a clean-out cap located outside your house that provides access to the sewer line.

The removal of tree roots from a sewer line is one of those jobs best left to the professionals. Not only do they have hi-tech equipment that can look inside your sewer line and find the problem, but they also have root cutters and backhoes to quickly expose buried lines. And, if roots have found their way in, a section of pipe usually needs to be replaced so the entrance route has been repaired. That’s not something that you want to mess with yourself.”
