Clogged Drain? DIY or Call a plumber?


October 9, 2017 Do not put cooking oils, fat, or grease, down your drain. These fats cause clogs by solidifying in pipes. To properly dispose of fats, put them in a bowl with a lid that you can dispose of. Once it gets hard, throw it in the trash or compost bin. You need to know your plumbing tools as well as how they are used so your plumbing efforts are always positive. Read the instructions, which many people overlook, and check out the internet which has many resources to help with plumbing issues. Don’t just blindly rush into a project. Plan each project so that you don’t make costly mistakes. Group all of your plumbing repairs before scheduling a plumber to come out. Check all of your fixtures and faucets. If anything is dripping, running or clogged, make a list for the plumber. That way, when the plumber comes, they can do all of the jobs in one visit. This will cut down on charges. If your sink is letting rusty water out and it will not drain, it is mostly likely because of the biological scum and grease that is built up in the pipes. You need to have your drains professionally cleaned, allowing maximum flow through your drains. Your drains must be open completely. Avoid placing fat, grease, and other oils into your drain. When they cool off, they become hard and will clog your pipes. As an owner of a garbage disposal, this is important because the blades will stop working if they have fat on them. Dump your oil outside or in a container that you throw out with the regular trash. Before you can fix a toilet that does not flush properly, it is important that you find out what is causing the problem. Depending on what the problem is, you may be able to fix it yourself. However, more complicated toilet flushing problems may require the services of a plumber. Correct low water pressure problems caused by sediment buildup by cleaning the aerator. Take out the aerator, pull it apart, and clean inside with a brush soaked in vinegar. Rinse the aerator with water, put it back together and then attach it back onto the faucet. This will improve the water pressure by clearing out blockages in the aerator. Fair enough, you’re not going to become an expert overnight – but there are surely one or two pieces of advice here that you can use. Every job that you do yourself is one less job that you have to pay someone else to do!
