Can chemical drain cleaners take care of a clog?
Homeowners often turn to chemical drain cleaners that are available at retailers to take care of clogs. One disadvantage to using chemical cleaners instead of contacting a plumber is the fact that these cleaners pose a danger to children and pets because of the toxicity of the chemicals present. Chemicals can also erode pipes and cause damage that will need to be repaired by a professional plumber in the future.

How can homeowners prevent pipes from freezing in the winter?

Pipes that freeze in winter often do so because they are located in unheated areas of a home or are exposed to cold winds. Homeowners can begin to ensure that pipes do not freeze by having a plumbing inspection and install insulation where necessary.

What causes my kitchen sink and washing machine drains to clog?

In most homes, the kitchen and laundry drains are connected. When the lint from the laundry drains meets the grease buildup from soap and food products, a nearly solid substance is formed, causing blockage.

What can I do about a sewer line blockage?

The main culprit is tree roots, and once they’ve blocked the line, there is very little you can do. A plumbing professional can snake the line to get it as clear as possible, and then use copper sulfide products to kill the remaining vegetation. But odds are the sewer line will most likely need to be replaced.

Why doesn't my old water heater work as well as it used to?

You should periodically inspect your water heater burner. The flame under the heater should appear blue with yellow tips. If it’s mostly yellow, or if it’s sooty under there, your flue may be clogged, which is a dangerous situation. Contact a professional to check it out. At least once every two years, have your water heater inspected by a service technician. He or she will also check the drain valve for signs of leakage, and the anode rods for corrosion.
