There are many signs that you might have clogged drains. The clog might be in one of the smaller pipes if someone dropped something down the tub drain or flushed too much toilet paper down the toilet. Otherwise, you might have a clogged sewer line. Sewer lines can become clogged for a number of reasons, such as mineral buildup, tree roots infiltrating the main sewer line, and even kitchen grease. You'll likely notice that something is wrong when water is backing up into the sinks or you're simply not getting enough pressure to flush the toilet. Other signs of a clogged sewer line include gurgling sounds in the toilet when you run the sink, backed-up water in the tub when you run the dishwasher or washing machine, and a foul, rotten eggs smell.
If you're looking for drain cleaning in San Fernando Valley, get in touch with LeadingEdge Plumbing & Rooter. We offer quality solutions that will make sure that you can enjoy having clog-free drains once more.
We can come out to your home or business building promptly to assess the problem. We would love to show you our services for cleaning out your drains. We can provide drain snaking services, but we also have a service that you might not be as familiar with. We provide hydro jetting to clean your pipes of mineral deposits, tree roots, and other debris that might be causing the backed-up water. During this process, a scope that supplies powerful jets of water is put into your drain dislodge any material that is causing the clog. This is a great service to use on fairly new pipes that only need to be cleaned out rather than replaced, but it's a less viable option for pipes that are old because worn-out pipes are more likely to be brittle and break under the powerful jets. A plumber in San Fernando Valley, CA, such as LeadingEdge Plumbing, can assess whether or not hydro jetting is safe for your plumbing.
You might decide that you would like to save yourself some money by cleaning your drains by yourself. This isn't as good of an idea as you might imagine for a couple of reasons. First of all, you might not be able to accurately assess where you have a clog, which could lead you to try methods that are either ineffective or could even damage your plumbing and fixtures. For instance, if your toilet won't flush, you might assume that you have a clog in the s-bend of the toilet, but the clog might actually be 100 feet away from the house. You should also be careful about trying to do a DIY project on the clogged drain because, if you're getting sewage backup, you need to have that taken care of immediately. Sewage backup can make people sick, and the gas is even flammable, making it a fire hazard.
