Slowly Draining Sinks and Bathtubs
Clogs are usually the cause for slowly draining water. They need to be dealt with or eventually, your sinks and bathtubs will be completely blocked. Often people will use drain-snakes or drain cleaners to remove the clogs, but these can damage the pipework, causing leaks. The safest way to remove clogs is to call bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of North Dallas, for a professional drain cleaning service.
This is a common problem as too many of us flush the wrong items down the toilet. Sanitary towels, facial tissues, cleaning cloths, and many others are not water-soluble and are hard to break down in the water. If they are not flushed away properly, they are the cause of blockages.
Blocked or Damaged Sewer Lines
If you notice discolored and foul-smelling water gurgling back into your sink, you have a serious health problem on your hands. If your sewer line is blocked or damaged, the wastewater from your home cannot escape to your municipal sewage network. It then backs up into your home. The best thing you can do is to call for a plumber from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of North Dallas. Our guys are equipped with the latest equipment which allows them to quickly locate and determine the extent of the problem. You will then be advised as to the best course of action to be taken.
Did you know that a faucet that drips one drop a minute, will waste thirty-five gallons a year? Multiply that by all the faucets in your home and that’s a lot of wasted water and money each year. It may be tempting to have a go and fix that dripping faucet yourself, but in our experience, an amateur DIYer can do more harm than good, and cause a serious leak. Leave any repairs to our professional plumbers from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of North Dallas.
Talking of leaks, they are not always easy to detect and if left for any length of time can cause a lot of water damage and run up your water bills at the same time. A moldy smell coming from the sink cabinet is a sure sign, together with damp patches on walls or floors, or water stains on the ceiling. A small leak may not seem like an emergency but should not be ignored.
A burst pipe is a different matter, very quickly, considerable amounts of water damage can happen. Your best course of action is to quickly locate the main water shut-off valve and turn it off. Then turn all the taps on to empty as much water from the pipes as possible, then call bluefrog to send a plumber around to you.
How To Avoid These Problems
Sinks and Bathtubs – Clogs are formed when grease, food, and other materials stick to the insides of waste pipes, so stop pouring these down the kitchen sink and put them in the compost. Clogs can also form in bathroom waste pipes, and are caused by hair, toothpaste, and soap sticking to them. Using a hair trap can catch these materials before they reach the waste pipes. Using chemicals can remove smaller less established clogs, but their overuse could damage and corrode older pipework.
Toilets – You should only flush water, human waste, toilet tissue, and some gentle cleaners down your toilet. Small blockages can be removed using chemicals, but again overuse can damage and corrode older pipework. Some blockages, such as a child’s plastic toy, are never going to be removed by chemicals, and you need expert help from a plumber from bluefrog. Another common mistake is to continually flush the toilet in the hope that it will clear the blockage, the most likely outcome is that a nasty mess will overflow onto your floor.
Sewer Lines – Any of those forbidden materials that are poured down a sink and cause clogs in the waste lines will do the same in your sewer lines. We at bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of North Dallas advise that you have your sewer regularly inspected, not just for blockages but for any damage as well.
Leaks – The best way to check if you have a leak, is to turn off all your taps and water appliances. If your water meter is still running this confirms that you have a leak. Not everyone knows where their mains water shut-off valve is, so find out now and save time and reduce water damage if that burst pipe occurs. Another good idea is to cover any exposed water pipes with insulating material to prevent them from freezing and causing a leak when it thaws.
