Common Causes of Clogs

Sending harmful materials into your system causes slow drains, blockages, sewer backups, and even an early replacement of your pipes. 

Here are damaging items you should never send down your drain:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Grease, fat, or oil
  • Large food scraps
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Bones or fruit pits
  • Dental floss
  • “Flushable” wipes

Even if you have a garbage disposal, many items won’t deteriorate fast enough to move through your system smoothly. It’s important to avoid sending harmful materials like this into your plumbing system, but this can’t always be controlled in a commercial environment. This is why preventative maintenance like hydro jetting is so essential. By getting ahead of the problem now, you can avoid more severe issues in the future, like a sewage backup, which is a plumbing emergency.

Our Experienced Plumbers Answer Your Questions!
  • What does descaling a pipe mean?

    Descaling a pipe refers to the process of removing mineral deposits, scale, and other accumulated debris from the interior walls of a scaled pipe. Descaling pipes involves using specialized tools or chemicals to dissolve and dislodge these deposits, restoring the pipe’s smooth surface and improving water flow. This preventive maintenance technique helps prevent clogs, corrosion, and potential plumbing damage. If you’re interested in scheduling your descaling service, reach out to After Hour Plumbing & Drain!

  • What is a sewer camera inspection used for?
    A pipe inspection camera is a valuable tool our team uses to visually inspect the interior of sewer lines and drains. It consists of a high-resolution camera attached to a flexible cable that can be inserted into the pipes. The camera sends real-time footage to a monitor, allowing our plumbers to examine the condition of the pipes, and identify clogs, cracks, leaks, or other issues that may not be visible from the outside. Sewer camera inspections help diagnose sewer problems precisely, enabling targeted repairs and ultimately saving time and costs.
  • What is hydro jetting?
    Hydro jetting is a powerful plumbing technique used to clear stubborn blockages from drains and sewer lines. This process involves the use of a specialized high-pressure water jet to forcefully blast water through the pipes, breaking down grease, tree roots, scale, and other obstructions. This is a safe and environmentally friendly method that thoroughly cleans the interior of your pipes, promoting optimal water flow. This advanced technology helps prevent future clogs and ensures long-lasting results for your plumbing system.
