Common Causes of Clogged Drains
If you’ve ever dealt with a clogged drain you well know that such a problem is not easy to spot. In fact, most people don’t notice a clogged drain until it has either overflowed or causes some other type of problem. For example, you notice the water won’t drain while you wash your hands or brush your teeth. Or, after shaving, once you open the drain stopper the water fails to recede down the drain. There are a lot of reasons why a drain can become clogged and we touch on a few of them in the section below.
Using Soap in the Form of a Bar
One of the leading culprits of a clogged drain is using bar soap. Many people still use bar soap to wash their hands at the bathroom sink or to wash themselves in the shower or bathtub. Bar soap is not your best option. Bar soap is greasy and grease should never be send down the drain because it can cause the drain to clog. Switch to soap from a pump dispenser immediately and throw away all of your bar soap.
Hair Quickly Accumulates
Hair, whether it is from shaving, brushing your head, or simply washing it in the shower, will quickly accumulate in a drain. It is difficult for hair to wash down any drain because of its length and curly features. Try to install a drain stopper in your bathroom sink or in your shower, especially if you shave over the bathroom sink or wash your hair regularly in the shower. The stopper will collect all of the hair and prevent it from going into the drain. Try to clean the stopper once per week so that hair does not continue to build up, which can lead to a foul smell.
Put Less Food in the Kitchen Sink
Just because you have a garbage disposal in your sink doesn’t mean you can dump any type of food you wish down the drain. Only certain foods can go down the drain when you have a garbage disposal and no food should go down the drain without one. If your kitchen sink drain is clogged you need to reduce the amount of food that makes it into the sink to prevent future clogs. The P-trap, which is the curved pipe under the sink, must be removed in order to unclog the drain.
Paper Products, Wipes, and Toys
Small objects always seem to wind up flushed down the toilet or stuck in a sink drain, especially when there are children living in the Pasadena, TX home. Napkins, tampons, jewelry, toys, wipes and other paper products are all small or thin enough to wind up going down the drain. The aren’t small enough to completely make it through the plumbing of your home and will eventually lead to a clog.
If you’ve had a plumber out to inspect a clogged drain and cannot find the culprit, you likely are dealing with a tree root that has broken through a pipe outside the home. If this is the case, the clog will be outdoors but can easily back up into the home if left untouched. A licensed plumber will be needed to dig up the area of the yard where the pipe is located, cut the section of pipe out with the tree root, remove the root, and then install new pipe.
Clogged Sinks & Drains
When there is a clog somewhere in your home’s plumbing you will not be able to use the sinks to shave, wash your hands, brush your teeth or do anything else without having the sink backup and then overflow all over the counter. A clogged sink could also lead to issues with your tub, shower, or toilets depending on how the plumbing of your home is laid out.
Backed Up Toilets
A backed up toilet is one of the worst plumbing issues to have because of the foul smell it can cause in your home. When your toilet becomes backed up it can push waste all over the floor of the bathroom and even make you and your family ill if it is not cleaned up immediately. A licensed plumber from Heaton Plumbing Inc. will be able to take a look at the toilet, the pipes underneath, it and the connection to your sewer line or septic tank to make sure there are no issues in those areas. The most common toilet clogs are caused by children flushing toys. Put a lock on the lid to prevent your children from flushing any toys so you can avoid nasty clogs.
Clogged Tubs & Showers
A clog in your tub or shower is one of the worst to have because you won’t be able to bathe until you have a plumber come fix the issue. It might take until the water in the tub fails to drain after a bath or flows over the lip of the shower while taking a shower to realize you have a serious clog somewhere in the plumbing system.
