Whenever a homeowner finds the drains in their home are not draining as they should be, there are many ways they may try to correct the problem on their own. Many homeowners will try to pour liquid solutions into the drain, hoping it will clear out the problem while others may try to use simple plumbing devices to correct the problem. Very often, these techniques will correct a simple drainage issue and the drain will begin to work properly again. However, if the issue is not resolved or it reoccurs, it may be best for a homeowner to contact an Ocean City MD Professional Plumber for assistance with the problem.
Many times, a simple drainage issue can be corrected with a mixture of vinegar and baking soda being poured into the drain, without causing the damage to the pipes some other types of chemical drain cleaners can cause. A plunger or hand held plumbing auger can also be successful in moving a clog in the drain enough so water can begin moving again. While these solutions may seem to correct the problem, they often only make it better for a while, and the issue originally causing the clog may remain. When this occurs, it can become very irritating and frustrating for the homeowner. However, if they contact a professional plumber, such as Acker and Son Inc., they will be able to have a professional handle the problem correctly, and this should prevent the problem from recurring.
One of the first things most plumbers will do is to try to determine what is causing the drainage problem and where the issues is located in the system. To determine where the problem is and what is causing it, an Ocean City MD Professional Plumber may use a camera, which is designed to go into the pipes and allow the plumber to see the interior of the plumbing system. This will enable them to determine what type of equipment may work best at correcting the issue.
Many times, it may be a clog deep in the pipes, which will need to be removed with a heavy-duty auger or plumbing snake. In some cases, it may be a buildup of soap scum, hair and other matter lining the pipes and causing problems. To correct this, a plumber can use a hydro jet to clean out the pipes.
