When your drain is clogged, it is no fun, and taking care of cleaning the pipes can be a real pain in the neck. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what method to use to clear a clogged pipe. If you put off the problem, it only gets worse. More and more debris will cling to the existing clog until you end up with a full blockage and water back up.
If you have already tried a drain-cleaning product to get rid of the FOG in the drain, in other words the fats, oils, and grease, and it has not worked, you have to call a pro to come in and free up the blockage for you. Remedies at this point include using an auger or snake and hydro jetting.
Snaking a Drain
If a clog is bad, a plumber can use an auger or snake to clear the pipe. The unit looks just like a snake and feeds into the pipe until it reaches the clog and pushes through it. Snaking a pipeline is inexpensive and a quick remedy to a bad clog. If the snake fails to clear the bad clog, it is time to break out the big guns and opt for hydro jetting out the drain clog.
Drain Clogs and Hydro Jetting
Hydro Jetting involves the process of forcing high-pressure water through the pipes to free up the clog. The method is an affordable and fast remedy that completely clears out your pipes from clogs and debris. The results are often long term and help in extending the life of your pipes. The process is clean as all waste remains in the lines until it is pushed out of them and into the sewer. Mineral build up, hair, grease, and sludge are freed from the interior of the pipes. It is a fast, easy, chemical free means of dealing with difficult pipe blockages.
As you can see, there are many different things that you can do or clear through these two methods. Because both options are only truly effective if you let a professional handle it, we highly recommend that you call the service professionals at Dr.Pipe Drain and Plumbing Services and help you with your Ottawa drainage issues.
