Many blockages are turned into a more serious problem when people attempt manual rodding themselves by inserting metal pipes, coat hangers and other long objects into the length of the pipe. This can lead to damaging the inside of the pipe, causing leaks and damage to your property. It might be tempting to try manual rodding yourself, but it can result in far worse problems.
Business owners make sure that they are not disrupted by a blocked drain by having routine drain jetting carried out. A high pressure jet of water is forced up the length of the pipe, clearing anything in its path, allowing the water and debris to return to its usual flow. By having this done on a quarterly basis for example, companies can be safe in the knowledge that any build up is being tackled before it becomes severe and leads to over-flowing toilets and bad smells for the customers and employees to put up with.
For home owners looking to avoid the cost of calling out the professionals, the only advice is to make sure you monitor what you put down your toilet. If you suspect a leak, try to tackle it with bleach. If this doesn’t work it’s time to call Drain WorX to help.
