Clogged or Plugged Drainage Trap
Calling a plumber about a blocked drain can be one of the most common but most frustrating, (For some people even embarrassing when calling about a stopped up toliet), calls for any home or business owner to has to make. When a drain gets clogged or stopped up and backs up, it can disrupt your home or business life. From toilet and sewer lines to showers, bathtubs or sinks, blocked drains are frustrating at best and can be very messy at worst. Most drain cleaning issues are caused by a problem with the drainage trap, or the device used to stop gases from your sewerage system coming up into your home.
These traps come in many different forms. Your standard sink usually has a “U” shaped trap, something you are familiar with if you have ever opened the cabinet for your bathroom or kitchen sink and looked at the pipe work. The pipe goes into a curve, like the letter “U”, and then continues moving on into the system. The most common trap in your home, however, is called a P-trap. Like a U-trap, the P-trap gets its name from the letter it resembles.
How to Plumbing – Can You Do It Yourself?
Depending on the severity of the drain blockage, there are different approaches that you can take to clear a clogged or slow flowing drain. A slow flowing drain can often be dealt with through normal consumer drain cleaning products you can find at your local grocery store or hardware store. However, if after the application of consumer products the drain shows no signs of change, it’s time to call a professional plumber. The same applies to completely blocked drains. These drains will not be affected by consumer products, so your best bet is to call a specialist to help resolve the issue quickly and cleanly.
Can You See What is Blocking Your Drain?
If the blockage is visible to you, it is possible that you can clear it yourself. For bathtub drains, for example, a large amount of hair at the surface of the pipe can cause slow or zero drainage. By removing the plug, you might be able to remove the blockage by hand, clearing the line. However, if the problem has moved into the trap, the process can become far more complicated. There are tools that can be used to clear the line, but if the blockage is too severe the pipes may need to be separated in order to effectively clear your drain.
