Common Clogged Drain Problems
When a pipe breaks it can cause a clog by collapsing. Typical causes of broken pipes include age, poor installation, cold weather, and tree roots. If you have this type of problem, you need to call a professional plumber to fix it.
Heavy rains can result in leaves, dirt, and debris clogging your outside drains, because this type of drain is usually not designed to handle large volumes of water and debris.
Debris & Foreign Objects
Food, fats, hair, and soap can all accumulate over time between a drain and drainpipe. These materials will first slow your water flow and, over time, stop wastewater flow entirely.
Common Sewer Line Problems
Water Backing Up
When a sewer line becomes clogged the effect can be seen in a backflow problem which may result in wastewater and sewage backing up and spilling out of your basement drain.
“Gurgling” Sound In Drains
If you should hear a gurgling or a sound like a coffee percolator, coming from your basement drain, or from a sink, or a bath tub/shower, this is an indication that you may have a main sewer line problem.
Sewage Backing Up
In some cases sewage may actually backflow into your basement, sink, shower or bath tub. In which case, you need to call our emergency service immediately and have an expert review the problem.
Emergency Drain Cleaning & Clog Fix
The process, also referred to as “water jetting,” “jetting” or “hydro scrubbing,” uses high-pressure water flowing at up to 4,000 PSI to cut through and clear especially troublesome drain obstructions.
A very popular and effective method of clearing clogs, and at McDonald Plumbing and HVAC we can clear any blockage because our snake cables and machines will fit virtually any size of drain.
Tree roots and debris can easily block sewer lines, causing sewage to back up into a basement or other areas of your home. We have the most sophisticated technology available to clear these types of difficult clogs.
