Plumber Tips: Drain Line Do’s and Dont’s

Monday, December 3rd, 2012 at 8:58 am

Are you in need of an Olympia WA plumber for a drain problem in your home? Call the plumbers at Brooks plumbing today! We can tackle any job, big or small. To help maintain the drain lines in your home, we’ve put together a list of do’s and dont’s for residential drain systems.

Call an Olympia Plumber for Backups and Clogs

Whether you have a toilet that is overflowing due to a backup, or you have a clogged sink, always call a plumber before you put chemicals down the drain or try to resolve it with a temporary fix. The plumber will be able to take care of the problem and prevent it from recurring. Using harsh drain cleaners will not solve the overall issue, and it can harm the pipes, particularly in homes with piping made of soft metals.

If necessary, the plumber can view the block from the inside with a video inspection device. They will diagnose the reason for the block and tell you how to avoid further problems. They will also let you know if the block was a sign of a more serious problem with your plumbing. Call us for all your drain line repair needs.

Think Before You Flush

Flushing diapers, baby wipes, paper towels, and other objects down the toilet is another common cause of drain system backups. Homeowners should never flush anything down the toilet that wasn’t specifically designed to be disposed of that way. When in doubt, you should always err on the side of caution.

Hire Brooks Plumbing for Drain and Sewer Line Replacements

We use trenchless technology for sewer line repairs and replacements. That means no trenches will be dug across your lawn, and this technology helps protect driveways, sidewalks, and landscaping. It also means less time spent digging and back filling, which translates to lower costs for you.  Replacing a sewer line is a major project that must be done correctly to avoid further problems down the road. You need a company you can trust.

Contact Brooks Plumbing today if you have questions or are in need of a Olympia plumbing repair.
