Q: If I have a blocked drain, do I have to call a rooter company?
A: No. We would recommend that you call a qualified, trained and certified plumber because domestic water pipes inside and outside your home can be very delicate. Older style pipes have a significantly shorter lifespan. In older homes, pipes wear thin from the inside out making them appear sound but in fact are very brittle and break easily. An unqualified and unskilled rooter company could cause extensive damage to your pipes and your home, needing major replacement.
Our trained technicians will take the time to properly diagnose the problem and utilize the right tools and techniques to solve the problem. Utilizing video technology we can show you the problem before the repair even begins. Should there be an issue of a broken pipe or other unforeseen problems after we begin the job, our experts can immediately take action.
Q: What happens when tree roots get inside drain lines?
A: If left undisturbed, roots from shrubs and trees can 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 causing, which may break the pipes and result in total collapse, which will require repair or replacement.
Some pipe materials are more susceptible to root intrusion than others. Clay pipe is easily penetrated and damaged by roots. Concrete pipe and PVC pipe may also allow root intrusion. PVC pipe usually has fewer joints and the tightly fitted joints are less likely to leak as a result of settlement around the pipe.
Q: How can I prevent clogged drains?
A: Do not rinse fats or cooking oils down the kitchen sink. Liquid fats solidify in the cold pipes and create clogs. To help prevent clogs, fit all your tubs and shower drains with a strainer that catches hair and soap chips, and clean the strainer regularly. We also recommend the use of our super –strength enzymatic drain treatment to maintain your drains and assist in breaking down natural and food-based blockages.
Q: What causes my kitchen sink and washing machine drains to clog?
A: In most homes, the kitchen and laundry drains are connected. When the lint from the laundry drains meets the grease buildup from soap and food products, a nearly solid substance is formed, causing a blockage. Using filters and strainers will help, but we also recommend having your drains snaked periodically as well.
Q: What can I do about sewer line blockages?
A: The main culprits are often tree roots, and once they’ve blocked the drain lines, there is very little you can do. A Fix-It 24/7 professional can snake the line to get it as clear as possible. But odds are the sewer line will most likely need to be replaced, once roots have comprised the drain lines.
Q: Are caustic liquid drain openers harmful to household pipes?
A: For minor clogs, they’re fine, but we never recommend that you use them on a drain that is completely clogged. The caustic ingredients become trapped in your pipes, and can severely damage them. If you can’t snake the drain yourself, call Fix-It 24/7. Warning – Never use caustic drain openers in a drain that has a garbage disposal.
Q: What is water jetting?
A: Fix-It 24/7 uses water jetting extensively. Water Jetting is a quick, economical and environmentally safe method of clearing drain and sewer lines. Water is propelled under pressure to scrub away years of built-up sludge, grease, lime scale and other grime and debris on the inside walls of the pipes.
There is simply no better way to get your pipes draining, short of replacing them completely. In the unfortunate event your sewer pipe or drain can’t be cleared, or it is broken we can help, and replace complete drain and sewage lines, economically, and effectively.
