How Often Should You Clean Your Drains?
Drain cleaning should be an essential part of your regular home maintenance schedule. Typically, we recommend that you have your drains cleaned on an annual basis. This ensures they remain clear, so you don’t have to deal with costly repairs. Also, because your drains are cleaned regularly, you don’t have to worry about them becoming majorly clogged, which often causes sewage to back into your house.
How Do You Know If Your Drain Is Clogged?
When you have a significant clogged drain, you’ll notice water backing up in your sinks, bathtub, and toilet. However, there are several things you can look for to spot a minor clog before it becomes an important issue, including:
- Toilet water sitting higher than normal
- Gurgling sounds as the water in your sink or bathtub drains
- Drains in the sink and bathtub draining slowly
- Foul odor coming from your kitchen sink
- Sewage backing up in your toilet when other water sources are used in your home
If left alone, minor clogs can worsen, so you should hire a Castle Rock, CO, plumber as soon as you notice any of these signs. Experienced plumbers have the tools to locate the clog and remove it without damaging your pipes.
Is My Main Sewer Line Clogged?
If your main sewer line is clogged, you’ll notice symptoms affecting several drains in your home simultaneously. For example, if all the drains in your house are draining slowly, the clog is in your main sewer line instead of the pipes running to a specific sink.
Some things you might notice if your main sewer line is clogged include:
- Water backing up into your bathtub when you flush the toilet
- Your toilet making bubbling or gurgling sounds when you run water in the sink or bathtub
- Water backing up in your bathtub or your toilet overflowing when you’re doing laundry
- Sewage randomly coming into your home from one or several drains
- Your basement flooding every time you run the dishwasher
When is Hydro-jetting Recommended?
Hydro-jetting is recommended for sewer lines with excessive buildup. In many cases, replacing your sewer lines is unnecessary due to blockages, especially if your home still has relatively new plumbing lines. Hydro-jetting can clear your pipes and get them flowing like new ones.
We first inspect your lines with a video camera, which alerts us to the nature of the blockage. If we see that tree roots are part of the problem, we need to cut through the roots using a mechanical snake and flush the remnants using hydro jetting.
Hydro-jetting is highly effective in scouring your interior pipe walls and dislodging years of buildup from sludge, grease, corrosion, and other debris. The debris is then flushed out of your plumbing system. This is different from snaking or rodding, which breaks up clogs but does not flush them out.
