The best part about modern plumbing is that we can take the nasty gross things about everyday life and literally wash them away in seconds. Carefully designed pipes which use gravity and water pressure whisk your waste away in a very efficient manner. Let’s dig further into what is going on inside your pipes.
When plumbing pipes are new they are highly efficient. The smooth surfaces allow water and waste to flow freely with zero impediment. But over time, the flow within these pipes can start to degrade. Here are some of the reasons this happens:
Most often, the cause of clogs in the bathroom are due to hair and soap. The combination of hair, which is a very strong material, and wax-like material in soap is a recipe for a clog.
We have pulled some of the most gruesome clogs out of drains right here in Melbourne, FL. We have found clumps of gunk containing hair, hair ties, fingernail clippings, animal fat, soap, disposable razor caps, dead insects and more.
You can call a plumber to flush your pipes if you notice they take a long time to drain. The plumber can choose from a variety of tools and methods to take care of the clog. There are chemical solutions as well as physical tools that will grind away at your stubborn drain clog and have your plumbing system running like new in no time.
