Plumbing Tips

Dealing with Clogs in Orlando Drains

One of the best ways to improve one’s Orlando home is through managing the house consistently and properly. A common challenge that a person would typically meet when performing home management is that of working with clogged drains. Of course, not everyone is adept at clearing something like this despite the fact that an individual is given specific equipments like the plunger, auger or ‘snake,’ closet auger, sewer tape, and some chemicals to unclog the drains in his house. In most cases, people simply opt to get professional Orlando plumbing repair help.

The plunger is the simplest tool one could utilize in dealing with clogged drains. But then, however, despite being thought of as the most user-friendly tool for unclogging Orlando drains many also seem to think that it is the most inefficient tool in solving drain dilemmas. The augers, as the majority would say, are actually more effective for this purpose because of its more rigid design that makes it capable of removing bigger and heavier drain clogs. A point of caution though, in using augers, one has to be reminded of its ability to damage sinks, pipes, and toilet bowls. Augers, however effective they are, must be used with great care.

If one has certain fears when using the auger, then he can use a much safer tool known as the sewer tape. It is a long flat thin piece of metal with a hook which differs in sizes at one end. One can just slide it down the drain, pull it out and clear out clogged drains. It has to be noted that while sewer tapes are less damaging as compared with augers, augers are more efficient than sewer tapes. If all the said tools are not enough for an individual when it comes to solving drainage problems, then he could always resort to chemicals. Specific chemicals can lubricate the drainage and thus simply let slip certain clogs. Others can also use mild grease or soft soap which also acts as a lubricant thus helping clear out any clogs.

If all these tools still aren’t working, then it is high time for an individual to go ahead and hire someone, who is an expert, to solve his drainage problems for him. Not all people are blessed with the abilities and know-how that these Orlando plumbers have whilst some simply do not have the stomach to solve drainage problems.
