Clogged pipes are a serious nuisance that can become very costly if left untreated. At SLB Pipe Solutions, we have experience in clogged pipe inspection, cleaning, repair, and replacement. Pipe problems can arise when invasive tree roots, debris, and foreign objects become lodged in your piping system. Blockages can disrupt your home or business with unpleasant odors, slow-releasing drains, and low water pressure. SLB technicians are skilled in identifying precisely where the blockage is located, diagnosing the issue, and offering you a menu of clog removal service options.
Prevent Clogged Pipes With Routine Maintenance
Performing regular plumbing maintenance on your pipes will help prevent clogs, leaks, and system failures. SLB recommends a yearly sewer camera inspection that will reveal any buildup and threats to your pipes. Invasive tree roots, debris, and buildup make it difficult for water and waste to flow smoothly. Over time, if clogged pipes aren’t cleaned and repaired as needed, major plumbing problems like burst or collapsed pipes can occur.
Hydro Jetting is the primary method of clogged pipe prevention from SLB Pipe Solutions. Using a chemical-free cleaning method, our technicians utilize advanced equipment that forces water through your pipes at an intense rate. The water is dispensed in a circular motion, removing buildup from along the pipe walls. Hydro Jetting is eco-friendly and can be performed yearly to restore your pipes to optimum efficiency.
Do I Call a Plumber for a Clogged Pipe?
Do-it-yourself clogged pipe repair can be difficult and threaten you plumbing. Technicians who inspect and clear blockages are trained and use professional equipment that’s sure to avoid further damage. SLB professionals are ready to help.
Attempting to use a store-bought drain cleaner to clear a clogged pipe will prove futile. The chemical-filled products aren’t powerful enough to reach clogs that are far along in your system. The cleaner will only push the clog further along if it has any effect at all. Relying on a professional plumber is the best way to deal with a pipe blockage. The SLB Pipe Solutions team walks you through the plumbing issue, presents possible solutions, and helps you make the best decision based on your needs and your budget.
How to Avoid Clogged Pipes
While some clogged pipe issues may be unavoidable, the majority of blockages can be prevented with good plumbing practices and regular care. To ensure your plumbing runs smoothly and lasts for years to come, never pour grease or cooking oil down drains. Use a drain screen in the shower or tub to catch loose hair and mind what waste you put down the garbage disposal. By following simple best practices, you’ll prevent drain and pipe clogs.
When pipes are disregarded until a problem occurs, the damage at that point may be irreversible, calling for pipe lining or replacement. Regular maintenance from SLB professionals saves you money by preventing costly repairs or pipe replacements.
A slow-releasing drain can be frustrating, but it doesn’t necessarily constitute a plumbing emergency. A clogged pipe needs to be addressed immediately if it blocks toilets from being flushed, doesn’t allow water to drain at all, or creates sewage backups in your home or business. If you’re unsure if a clogged pipe is causing the plumbing issues in your home, the SLB technicians can help solve the issue by inspecting your plumbing, evaluating the issue, and offering possible solutions.
