The drainage system in a home or business is one of those complex subsystems that most people forget about, at least until a clog develops. Clogged pipes can cause a number of other faults such as leaking effluent around the main sewage lines or waste returning to the building because it has nowhere else to go. This can be a real problem in a home that has a shower stall on a ground floor because, as long as the waste water has somewhere to go, it will drain out of the pipe. If a shower stall is in place, then it is probably the lowest point in the indoor pipe before connecting to the sewer system. To avoid this situation getting really messy, it may be necessary to consider Drain Cleaning in Saginaw TX.
There are two primary places that may require Drain Cleaning in Saginaw TX. The first and most common are the P-Traps that keep sewer gases from entering the building. These are the ‘U’ or ‘S’ shaped pieces of pipe connected close to the drain. To eliminate this sort of clog typically requires that the P-Trap be removed and thoroughly cleaned. Optionally, it may be possible to eliminate the clog by plunging the drain or applying pressurized air. Be careful, however, because pressurized air could damage certain types of pipe and cost even more to fix.
The other common location that requires Drain Cleaning in Saginaw TX is the run of pipe between the building and the actual connection. This pipe can be damaged in a number of ways, including simple things such as root growth. Plants have a need to search for water and when they find a plentiful source such as that in a sewer pipe, the roots will spread and grow towards that source. This often means that plant roots will find their way into the seams that hold the pipes together. Once a root ball begins, it is simply a matter of time before a clog appears. This is because the roots can trap much of the waste in the pipe. Even worse, a plant can actually destroy the pipe and force the need for serious repairs.Contact Ace Repair Plumbing to learn more.
