A Slow Drain
A slow-moving drain will be tolerable for only so long. If you ignore this problem, it will eventually become a major issue, possibly becoming a clog that does not permit water to flow at all. Slow drains indicate a slew of potential problems. In particular, a slow drain is indicative of a clog. However, it is also possible the pipes have become more narrow due to obstructions such as grease or minerals that have built up over time. There is also the chance the drainage system has improper grading. Reach out to our Rogers, AR plumbers as soon as you notice your drain is slow-moving so we can address the problem before it becomes an even larger issue.
A Recurring Clog
Tree roots can grow in your sewer lateral pipes and cause clogs and breakage. Also, shower and bathtub drains are particularly prone to clogging due to the hair that falls into them during bathing. If your drain clogs over and over again, it is likely the result of failing to remove the entirety of the clog after use. Instead of attempting clog removal over and over again, lean on Drain-Rite Rooters in Rogers, AR to eliminate those pesky clogs with professional plumbing equipment. This deep cleaning ensures the problem will not arise once again in the weeks and months to come. We don’t recommend drain unclogging chemicals that you pour down drains as it can damage pipes!
Drainage System Obstruction
Tree roots have the potential to breach your drainage system. These roots grow in the direction of essential moisture, moving through the soil to the drainage system. Sadly, such roots have the potential to rupture pipes, blocking water that should move without obstruction. Such roots also have the potential to catch hair, toilet paper, food remnants and other items that go down the drain, resulting in quite a considerable clog. This plumbing challenge should only be handled by our experienced Rogers plumbers.
