Why DIY Drain Cleaning Doesn’t Work

We understand that few things in life are completely black and white. And we understand that, while you may never attempt to replace your own sewer line or repipe your home, something like drain cleaning in Tucson doesn’t seem quite that daunting. However, when we say that you should leave your plumbing services to trained professionals, we really mean it—drain cleaning included! Sure, it may not be as big a risk as those other services, but it can still lead to trouble.

Mostly, it’s going to lead to ongoing trouble, because the chances of you doing an effective job of cleaning your drains for lasting results is slim. But guess what? Drain cleaning is just another of the outstanding plumbing services that we have to offer. So if your drains are not functioning the way that they should, call our number to schedule service with a professional plumber who you can trust today.

But They Sell Those Drain Cleaners You Just Pour…

We’re going to stop you right there.  Sorry, we honestly don’t mean to be rude. But trust us, we’ve heard this one before. Oftentimes from the very clients that have hired us to clean out their drains! You see, these chemical drain cleaners may well clear out the blockage in the drain a little bit. But they are most likely going to clear out the blockage just enough to allow the cleaner itself to pass through.

You know what that means? That it is only a short matter of time before that blockage builds back up again. Don’t get stuck in an endless loop of pouring harsh chemicals down your drains. Instead, schedule service with us so that we can resolve the problem in an effective and lasting manner.

Well, There Are Also Those Drain Snakes That…

Okay, again—sorry.  But we’ve got to stop you here. We know that there are drain snakes you can buy. And you can definitely give them a shot. And you know what?

Well, they might work in some cases.

However, they are really only going to do you any good in instances when the clog you are trying to resolve is shallow in the drain. That is not always going to be the case. Plus, you may wind up just forcing the snake or auger through the clog, and mistake it for a job well done.

Schedule Service with Us

Your drain system is more extensive than you may realize, and stubborn clogs can really dig in and cause trouble throughout that system. Ultimately, your best course of action is going to be prevention. Clean out your hair from the drain trap after you shower, use drain traps to begin with, put the right things down the disposal and the right things in the trash, etc.

Then, when you do wind up with drain clogs anyway—which you will, but not too frequently—reach out to us. We’ll take it from there.

Schedule your drain cleaning services with The Sunny Plumber Tucson. Bright and shiny and won’t show our hiney.

Roger came out on Thanksgiving Day to fix our unit. Turns out, our home builder completely shorted us on the amount of blown-in attic insulation (which you think a home inspector would have caught) and also our unit is too small for our house which is 4 years old. Roger took the time to explain all of this to us in detail and got our unit up and running. Thank you Roger!
