Do I Have a Clogged Drain?
It’s important that homeowners know how to identify the signs of a clogged drain so they can act fast before it becomes a serious problem. Your drains can be clogged for various reasons, whether it’s an object that got stuck or debris that accumulated over time.
In some cases, it’s just a lack of maintenance that causes the drain to get clogged with mineral deposits and rust. The following are a few common signs that suggest your drain is clogged:
- Slow Draining or Pooling Water: Are you noticing water around your property in areas where you don’t normally see it? If you see water pooling around the drain in your sink, it is usually a sign of a clog.
- Bubbling Water in the Bathroom or Kitchen: If you see bubbling water when you turn on your faucet or hear a gurgling sound in your sink when you run the dishwasher, you might have clogged drain. The smell of rotting food is also a sign that your drain might be clogged.
How to Thaw a Frozen Pipe
The weather in Memphis occasionally brings temperatures below freezing, which means the pipes in your home might freeze. To thaw frozen pipes, you need to first shut off the water supply to the area you will be looking at. Frozen water acts like a plug in the pipe until it is thawed. However, once the pipe is thawed, water will come rushing out.
Have a mop, bucket, and towels on hand to deal with any excess water or leaks. To thaw the pipes, you can simply use a hairdryer, heat lamp, or space heater along the length of the pipes. You can also try wrapping the pipes with thermostatically controlled heat tape. Whatever you do, don’t use a propane torch, because this presents a serious fire risk.
Our licensed plumbing experts are available to help with emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because we can perform a video inspection, we can identify exactly where your problem lies. We can show you the issue and explain what is needed to have your drains working again.
If you choose us, you'll have the opportunity to deal with a full-service technician who's committed to quality service at great rates. When working with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Memphis, you will receive quality services and never be charged overtime fees.
