What Causes Slow Drains?
Your drains could be slow for a wide variety of reasons. First, you may have old pipes. This means that your pipes may be struggling with corrosion or having weak spots. Second, you may have buildup inside your pipes. This can come as a result of corrosion, but it can also come from paper products or chemicals that go down the drain. Third, you may have drains that are clogged up partially. You may not see a clog when looking down the drain, but if your drains have not been cleaned lately, this could be a problem in the making. Fourth, you may have a pipe that has cracked or partially collapsed. This means that whatever goes down the pipes has more to go through in order to drain.
How Bob Oates Repairs Slow Drains
There are several options for repairing slow drains. The only way to determine the best way to fix this problem is to figure out what the cause is. To diagnose the problem, we will typically take a camera and inspect your pipes. This is a simple process where we run a remote-controlled camera through the pipe to see what condition the pipe is in. If you have a clog, a cracked pipe, or if there are roots invading your pipes, we will be able to see it. Then, we can figure out which method of repair will work best for your specific situation.
If you have a clog, we can clean the pipes using pressurized water. This breaks up the clog and allows the debris to move down the pipe without anything in the way. If the pipe is clogged or broken, we can reline the pipe or replace it if that is necessary. If your pipe is full of tree roots, we then will discuss what your options are with you. Some people need to cut the roots out, while others need to replace the pipe, depending on how bad the problem is.
