Why Do I Need Drain Opening Service?

Drain opening is a necessary action when your drains won’t allow water to flow freely. As you may know, a properly installed drain should never back up. Unfortunately, overtime, general use and contaminants can put a strain on your plumbing. Known clogs can be addressed quickly, but sometimes drain clogs or backups are the sign of a much larger issue. 

Drain openings can be a preventative service that helps you reduce the instances of larger, more costly and complex plumbing issues you might face in your Cincinnati or Covington area home.

Ignoring a clogged drain can cause many problems, including:

  • Home water damage
  • Extensive clogging
  • Severe piping damage

Even worse, using a DIY solution like chemical drain opening products can cause long-term damage to your pipes, which is a much more serious situation than a simple clog. This includes brands such as Drain-O, and Liquid Plumber.  They can harm you, your family, or the plumber who will most likely need to be called to truly resolve the issue. 

Don’t try to handle the problem yourself — contact the reliable plumbers at Schneller Knochelmann for quality and safe drain opening.

When Is a Clogged Drain a Sign of a Minor Issue or a Major Problem?

Minor clogs usually drain slowly. The sink/tub may fill, then the water will gradually recede. When this happens, plunging or applying a drain cleaner will usually solve the problem. More serious clogs are indicated when the water keeps rising, and the water won’t go down the drain.

If plunging and drain cleaners don’t clear the clog, it indicates that the problem is deeper in the pipes than you can reach.

FAQs About Drain Clearing

What can clog a drain?

Many things can clog a drain. Hair and food waste are common causes of clogged drains, as are toilet paper, “flushable” wipes, paper towels, mineral buildup, and tree roots that grow into the pipe. When clogs don’t go away on their own, a professional sewer and drain line cleaning may be needed.

What are some DIY drain clearing solutions?

There are no effective DIY drain opening solutions. You should always have a qualified licensed plumber address your drain issues.

How can I keep my drains clear?

It’s vital to monitor what you flush down your drains. Fats, oils, greases, paper towels, diapers, and wet wipes should never be flushed. You should also make sure children don’t have access to toilets or sinks, because a significant number of clogged toilets and bathroom sinks in Ohio and Kentucky are caused by children’s toys that go for a swim. 

It’s a good idea to rinse your drains with hot water regularly. This helps break up fats and oils. You’ll also want to pour in some baking soda with a little vinegar from time to time. Another option is to apply enzymes that can help break down bacteria and clear hair clogs and other debris from your pipes.

When applying any solution, always follow directions carefully and never mix chemicals; instead of giving you a more efficient drain cleaning, they could spark a violent and unsafe reaction.
