Blocked Drains2


Blockages in your plumbing can arise from a variety of reasons. However, the main root of all of these causes mainly stem from neglecting to clean out your drain regularly. A drain that hasn’t been cleaned in months can eventually lead to a blockage in your plumbing system.
Blocked drains are typically caused by the following:

  • Small Foreign Objects. Small objects like jewelry, soap, or other detritus can cause a major blockage in your drain. Small children might be prone to flushing random objects down the drain and cause similar problems. It’s important to note that toilets and sinks are not suitable ways to dispose of waste and other small objects.
  • Toiletries. Flushing toiletries like nappies and baby wipes should be avoided as much as possible. Paper napkins or toilet paper tend to get swollen when it absorbs water, causing them to clog drains when there’s a large build up that accumulates over time.
  • Grease. Greasy and fatty substances like cooking oil or fatty foods can become quite problematic when they start building up in your plumbing. Due to their nature, grease and fat tend to stick to the insides of pipes and eventually cause a massive buildup that can block your drainage system.
  • Food Waste. Instead of using a garbage disposal unit or segregating your residual trash, some people just throw their leftovers down the sink. Since the drain in your sink isn’t specifically designed to pass large residual waste like this, leftovers can cause a massive buildup in your pipes and cause it to become clogged.
  • Hair. While working in the kitchen, it’s easy to miss the fact that fallen hair can gradually build up in your drainage system. This is why employees working in the food industry are required to wear hairnets to avoid hair from getting into unwanted places while working in the kitchen. Large clumps of accumulated hair can eventually cause your drain to get clogged so it’s best to clean your pipes regularly to avoid this.

This is why it’s important to clean your drain from time to time. And to ensure that this is done in a fast and efficient manner, it’s best to leave it to the experts like Wide Plumbing Services. As a local service provider, we know how to unblock those clogged drains in the best way possible.

  • The new standard temperature that manufacturers use when pre-setting your hot water heater at the factory is typically 50 degrees centigrade. This is a sufficient temperature for most households. If you have an older model, you can set the thermostat at medium. Gas models usually have a dial on the front of the gas valve. Electric models have thermostats (there may be two) that are concealed behind the two panels on the side of the tank. You can adjust the temperature to meet your needs. Keep in mind that hot water also helps in minimizing the growth of bacteria. Consult your Wide Plumbing professional for the recommended temperatures for your particular needs. NOTE: Turn off the electricity to the water heater before performing any personal maintenance. There can be exposed wires behind the panels that may result in extreme shock.
  • Rumbling sounds can be an indication that sediment has built up on the bottom of the water heater. Water can become trapped in this sediment and begin to boil. This means the water heater is not operating efficiently and the sediment isn’t allowing the heat to transfer to the water in the tank. You may try draining a few gallons of water off the bottom of the water heater tank. This is done by attaching a drain hose to the valve at the bottom of the tank. Allow it to drain for about five minutes. Many newer models of water heaters have a new feature that prohibits the buildup of sediment in the tank. If your heater is an older model, it may be cost effective to replace the water heater if the buildup is severe. Contact Wide PLumbing for year-round maintenance of your water heater. WARNING: Hot water is dangerous. Discharge the water into a floor drain, laundry tub or bathtub. Hot water will kill your grass if allowed to run on your lawn and will also crack a toilet bowl if discharged into the toilet. Turn off power to water heater prior to draining.
  • If left undisturbed, roots from shrubs and trees will completely fill a pipe with multiple hair-like root masses at each point of entry. These root masses quickly become clogged with toilet tissue, grease and other debris flowing from your home to the main sewer, resulting in reduced flow, slow running drains and in most cases a complete blockage. Once roots have entered the pipe, they continue to grow and expand, exerting considerable pressure at the crack or joint. This increased pressure often breaks the pipe and may result in total collapse, which requires repair or replacement. Some pipe materials are more susceptible to root intrusion than others. Clay tile pipe is easily penetrated and damaged by tree roots. Concrete pipe and PVC pipe may also allow root intrusion, but to a lesser extent than clay pipe. PVC pipe usually has fewer joints and the tightly fitted joints are less likely to leak as a result of settlement around the pipe. Allow Wide Plumbing to use state-of-the-art inline drain cameras to view and record your drain problems with roots.
  • When considering any new fixture for your home, we recommend that you choose a fixture made by one of the major manufacturers. If cracks or fissures are present in the tank or bowl, this can impede the operation of the fixture. Poor mounting and deteriorating rings and seals can affect the operation as well.
  • You may want to check to see if a toilet is leaking. Check the water level in the tank to see if water is overflowing into the overflow pipe. This is the pipe in the middle of the tank which has a small tube connected to it. In the event water is running into the overflow pipe, adjust the fill valve to stop the flow approximately one inch below the top of the overflow tube or to the water level mark stamped on the side of the tank. Periodic maintenance by a plumbing professional will ensure proper operation.
  • It could be that you have lost your “air cushion.” To get it back, turn the water supply off at the main valve. Turn on all the taps around your home. Then turn on the main valve again and shut off each tap. This should take care of the problem.
  • First, try using a plunger. Second, try using a liquid drain opener, but use caution and read the directions. Third, you can remove the trap and remove any debris. Be careful if you have used a liquid drain opener, because there may be some in the trap. Fourth, if the clog is beyond the trap, there are drain augers that extend from about 15 feet to about 50 feet. There are also special enzyme-based drain openers, like the types used at Wide Plumbing, that will help dissolve buildup in pipes in older homes.
