Did you know that every toilet, sink, bathtub, and shower in your Alamo, Ca home has a corresponding drain. The drain system of your plumbing pipes are designed to help carry used water away so that it doesn’t cause harm to you or your family.
All waste water that is generated by your home is full of bacteria. Whether the water is from the kitchen sink and has bacteria from meat, dairy and eggs. Or, it is from the bathroom and has bacteria from human waste or fluids.
The drain system that your home is configured with is essential to protecting your fresh water source and to protecting you and your family from coming into contact with these bacteria sources. Unfortunately, your drains are used several times throughout the day, making them highly susceptible to general wear and tear.
This means that the parts of your home that manage some of the most toxic materials are also the ones that are the most likely to malfunction. In fact, the most commonly clogged drain in your home is the toilet.
There are several drains all throughout your home, some of them include:
- Laundry room or utility sink. This is the area where things like dirty mop water are poured out, which can be filled with bacteria from the kitchen and bathroom floors.
- Kitchen sink. The kitchen sink takes the brunt of the food preparation and clean-up in your home. This is where food scraps and grease will get rinsed down the drain and form clogs and breed bacteria in the drain line
- Bathroom sink. The bathroom sink is where used toothpaste is deposited. That alone is full of bacteria. A clog in your bathroom sink could easily lead to a back-up of bacteria laden water that would pose a serious health risk.
Keeping all of the drains in your home properly maintained and moving is essential to the health of your family and your plumbing system. Absolute Plumbing and Drain of Alamo provides the latest in drain cleaning services and, is highly-trained in assessing the various problems that could be causing a drain cleaning issue.
Many people feel that their plumbing problem came on out of nowhere but, your plumbing system does give subtle signs that a problem is brewing. Here are some of the typical signs of a drain problem:
Your drains are moving slowly
A slow moving drain is a definite sign that there is a clog or some kind of obstruction in the drain line that is preventing the water from passing through. In the kitchen, this could be anything from a build-up of grease and soap residue, to a bunch of potato peelings that shouldn’t have been rinsed down the drain.
The kitchen and bathroom drains are pretty common ones to have clogs in. But, the most commonly clogged drain in your residential or commercial plumbing system is the toilet. It doesn’t seem like the toilet would be included in the drain category but, it is.
The job of the toilet is to carry used water away from your home, and that makes it a drain.
When you are not using the drain, it makes a gurgling sound
Anytime that a fixture or appliance in your plumbing system makes gurgling noises – when it is NOT in use – it is time to contact Absolute Plumbing and Drain of Alamo to work out the problem.
This is a definite sign of a problem in the system and it needs to be addressed right away. While the noise probably doesn’t bother you and, it doesn’t really impede your use of your plumbing system – it does indicate a problem.
Your plumbing system is a complex configuration of pipes, fittings, and valves and when something is wrong in one area, it will translate into problems with other areas. It’s very similar to your car in that way. If there is a problem with the brakes, your tires will begin to wear unevenly.
There is used water backing up in your sink or basin
Imagine you are taking a shower after a long trip away from home and you soon realize that you are standing in a puddle of gray, disgusting water. Or, you have been awaken in the middle of the night to use the toilet, and when you flush the toilet clogs and your bathroom floor is flooded with used toilet water and waste.
