Coming home after a long day to a leaky pipe or a clogged drain isn’t how you want to end your day. Clogs are one of the most common plumbing issues. If you see that water has built up around any of the drains in your home and not draining as quickly as it’s supposed to, it is likely you have a clog. RepairCare can send a qualified and licensed plumber to inspect and fix any clogged drains you may be facing in Coquitlam.
The most common types of clogs include:
Garbage Clogs: You definitely cannot put all of your garbage down the garbage disposal, no matter how much easier it seems than taking out the garbage. Grease, oil, bones, twist ties, paper, napkins, cigarette butts etc, should not be thrown down the garbage disposal. These damage the drains, and they can turn into sludge, clogging the drain, resulting in the need for a repair.
Hair Clogs: Some strands of your hair goes down the drain when you shower, and if your hair is long is especially thick, it’s bound to get stuck. If the water is taking much longer to drain than normal, or if while showering you notice a significant amount of pooling, your shower drain is clogged. While getting rid of a hair clog can be simple enough, it should be taken care of ASAP as it can damage the pipes and result in a leak, which can be very expensive to fix.
Toilet Clogs: Just like the garbage disposal, it can be tempting to toss things into the toilet rather than place them properly in the garbage. The only things that you should be flushing is human waste and a reasonable amount of toilet paper. Other products including paper towels, napkins, and feminine hygiene products absolutely should not be flushed down the toilet. The toilet’s plumbing wasn’t designed to push those items through, and if they are flushed it’s not good for the plumbing.
If you see water building up around any of the drains in your home and not flowing through or draining quickly like it’s supposed to, it is likely you have a drain clog. RepairCare can send a qualified and licensed plumber to inspect and fix any clogged drains you may be facing.
