You don’t need us to tell you that our modern plumbing systems play a huge role in our day to day lives. Whether at home or in your commercial property, the plumbing system is coming into play in a number of ways, throughout the day, each and every day. What some property owners do need to be reminded of from time to time, however, is the fact that there is really no such thing as a “minor” plumbing problems.
Sure, not every issue that you’ll encounter with your system is an emergency. Even problems like slow-moving drains can be a warning of more serious problems to come, though. This is to say nothing of the fact that a problem like slow-moving drains is frustrating and inconvenient in its own right. If the drains in your home or commercial property are moving slowly, contact a member of our team right away. You need our exceptional scour jet services in Las Vegas, NV.
What Causes Drains to Slow Down?
First things first, why is it that your drains are moving slowly in the first place? There are a few different reasons as to why this may happen. If you notice that all of the drains throughout your entire home are moving slowly, then it is very possible that you have an issue with a clogged sewer line. Perhaps tree roots have grown into it. It’s even possible that a part of the line has collapsed, restricting water flow. The nature of the problem will dictate the response needed. Tree roots can be cleared out with scour jet services in many cases, whereas a damaged sewer line will require repairs or replacement.
While these are certainly possibilities, the fact of the matter is that most issues with slow-moving drains are the result of user error. How does one misuse his or her drains? Chiefly by putting materials down them, or accidentally letting materials down them, that they shouldn’t.
What to Keep Out of Your Drains
- “Flushable” wipes, which really aren’t all that flushable.
- Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG), which can congeal and cause blockages.
- Food that makes its way through the strainer.
- Hair, whiskers, etc.
- Sanitary Napkins.
Why Choose Scour Jet Services?
Okay, you may be thinking, that’s good to know. But when a problem develops, I’ll handle it myself. We really do appreciate the DIY ethic that so many homeowners have, but you must also be aware of your own limitations. Simply put, you are not going to be able to clean your drains — and certainly not your sewer — as effectively as we can with our scour jet service.
This is because there is a difference between cleaning and scouring these pipes, and simply clearing them out a bit. If you use a hash chemical cleaner, you may be able to clear out enough of the clog to let some water pass through more quickly than it was. You may be able to clear enough of a clog with a drain snake to convince yourself of a job well done. It’s only a matter of time before that problem redevelops, though.
With scour jet equipment, we can feed a hose into your drainage/sewer system in order to blast away not only clogs, but the accumulation on the interior surfaces of your pipes. That leaves a nice, clean pipe behind, meaning that clogs will not be nearly so quick to re-accumulate. The result is an eco-friendly way in which to keep your drains and sewer line working more effectively and reliably for a longer stretch of time.
