Do You Know Why Your Drains Are Slow?

When your drains are working well, you might forget they even exist. But when things go wrong, it can be frustrating fast. In this video, we talk about how drains work and what they're made of. Then we discuss how to maintain them and what to do with a slow blocked drain.

The drainage system is anywhere the water goes in your home after you see it. The pipes are gravity-fed, so it doesn’t need any power to move everything. That simple construction means you shouldn’t have to do much for your drains to work if it’s all installed right.

If anything other than water or sewage gets in there, you might end up with a blockage. That can make it so the water and gas can’t go where it needs to. After that, any new water added to the system is going to find a way out. That’s when you get a backup in your home.

If you’re dealing with a backed-up drain, there are a few things you can try it fix it. For example, you can take apart the p trap of your bathroom sink to clear out the gunk. Or you can use pliers to try to pull hair out of your shower drain. And a plunger can clear a lot of clogs. But if those or the other suggestions in the video don’t do the job, a plumber is your best bet. In that case, Any Hour Services would be happy to help. Our drain technicians can help find the problem and work with you to find the best solution for your home.
