Maintaining Clear Drains in Magnolia, TX and Beyond

Rooter-Man Plumbing to the Rescue in Magnolia, TX with drain cleaning advice. Indoor plumbing is one of the greatest inventions; however, it may not work properly if property owners fail to perform routine maintenance and basic inspections. For example, having water flow freely into your home is wonderful unless it doesn’t drain properly. This week, Rooter-Man Plumbing wanted to offer a few tips to help keep your drains flowing properly all year long.

  1. Ensure all drains are covered with some kind of drain guard for debris. You can find them at almost any store for a good price. These should be cleaned routinely—especially ones in the shower that catch hair. Prevention is the best way to avoid major clogs, so ensure you have drain guards installed in all drains.
  2. Inspect the p-traps under your sinks to ensure none are leaking. If you find any sort of moisture or water under the p-trap (the small, u-shaped pipe), you have a leak. You may be able to tighten the pipes; however, it is best to have one of the plumbing technicians at Rooter-Man Plumbing take a look to verify.
  3. You should also routinely inspect all of your drains. Go around your home and turn on the water in every sink and ensure the water drains away quickly. If it does not, you may have a clogged drain. You can try to clear the drain by pouring baking soda and vinegar down your drain to remove any minor blockage. If this does not work, you should consult a licensed technician right away to ensure the problem is not more serious.

If you’ve performed these basic tips and routine maintenance inspections and still have a plumbing issue, you might have a more serious problem such as a severe clog, leaky pipe, or some other plumbing problem.
