Is your plumbing up to speed?
Backups remain a huge problem for millions of Americans every year. The good news is that this can be avoided. Backups happen as a result of constricted water flow. Large debris and clogs of hair can create a stoppage in the sewer line. When this happens, homeowners may notice unusual drainage in the sink. Water may be slow to drain or cease to drain at all. The water level in the toilet may rise and the washing machine may malfunction. Another important sign to look for is water rising from the bathtub. All these are sure signs that there is a backup. Not only can backups be costly to repair, they can be incredibly inconvenient. Often times, a backup that originated in the bathroom will affect all drains that share the same water line. This means that use of any and all plumbing should be halted until the problem is repaired.
Another major problem that can arise from lack of maintenance is build-up. Mineral deposits and grease can cause significant build-up in your pipes. This can cause water to drain very slowly. This is why you should never pour grease down the sink. Build-up that is left unattended to will get worse with time. The good news is that an experienced plumber can clean these deposits so that your pipes are functioning at optimum levels.
