Drain Issues

What Causes Drain Clogs?

Whenever you begin experiencing overflows in your sink, shower, tub, or toilet, it's time to get a professional drain service. Even slow running drains need to be addressed, as clogs will not get better on their own!

There are many things that can lead to a clogged drain, including:

  • Excess hair
  • Waste
  • Accumulated soap scum
  • Food scraps
  • Foreign objects
  • Invasive tree roots
  • Excess toilet paper/paper products
  • Lack of proper drain maintenance

At American Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we address any and all drain problems with state-of-the-art plumbing equipment and innovative solutions. Our plumbers use hydro-jetting, drain snakes, camera inspections, and other advanced techniques in order to provide superior drain services in Oceanside and the surrounding areas.

What Is a Main Line Stoppage?

One of the most potentially devastating types of blockages occurs in your main line. This can result in sewage backing up into your home, leading to serious health hazards.

Signs of a main line stoppage include:

  • Drains flooding when you flush the toilet
  • Gurgling noises coming from your toilet or drains

Main line stoppages are typically caused by flushing items like tampons, baby wipes, and paper towels down the toilet, but they can also be caused by tree roots growing into your main line and blocking it off.

How to Prevent Drain Problems

In order to keep your drains working for as long as possible, take some simple precautionary measures, such as periodically cleaning your pipes with vinegar and baking soda. Let the chemicals dissolve the grime in your pipes for about 15 minutes before flushing them with boiling water. Avoid using chemical drain cleaners, as most chemical drain cleaners provide only a temporary fix and may lead to further damage. Additionally, drain strainers are a necessity, especially in your kitchen sink, and you should always prevent certain food items from falling into your drains, such as rice, fruit peels, potato skins, onions, grease, and oil.


Tips For DIY Plumbers

If you need to immediately address a drain problem, here are some tips from our expert Oceanside drain cleaning team:

  • Be sure to keep a bucket underneath the trap of your kitchen sink and make sure your joint slip nuts are in good condition.
  • When installing a new shower head, be sure to clean the threads on the shower arm and wrap them in Teflon tape.
  • When working on your toilet tank assembly, be sure to turn off the water at the supply valve. Replace all the washers with new ones. Remove the float arm and refill tube and loosen the coupling nut where the water inlet pipe enters the tank before unscrewing the nut under the tank.
  • Once you finish reassembling the tank fixtures, ensure the float is not rubbing anywhere.

While do-it-yourself solutions can provide a temporary fix, it’s always best to call our professional Oceanside drain cleaning teamwhen you need drain cleaning or repair in Oceanside or the nearby areas. American Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help you with everything from leak detection to drain repairs, pipe re-routing, re-piping, and more. We’re available at any time of day or night.
