Blocked Drain in Portsmouth?
How to fix a blocked drain or sewer in Portsmouth
A blocked drain in Portsmouth may be possible to clear on your own. There are a couple of things you can try before you call the plumber. Look at the drain to determine whether you can see something that is clogging it. For example, a large wad of hair might be stuck near the top of the drain. If so, you can easily remove it and see whether that cures the problem.
A clog may be able to be pushed away using a plunger. However, you need to be careful because you don’t want to break any of the drain pipes. If these two easy things don’t clear the problem you likely need to call in a professional. Do not pour any type of chemical drain cleaner into the drain because this might make it more difficult for the plumber to resolve the situation.
Call a professional drain clearance company
Most often, a blocked drain in Portsmouth will require help from a professional. Make a call to schedule an appointment. Emergency plumbing services are often available. Clear any items out from under the sink where the blockage occurred. This will give the plumber room to work. The plumber may need to shut off water to a portion of your home or the water main depending on where he needs to work.
A clogged drain might have been slowly gathering debris over a period of time. If so you might have noticed that the drain has been running more slowly as time progressed. Let the plumber know of the symptoms of the problem so that he can diagnose the situation more easily. The clog may be in the immediate pipes or trap or it might be located further down in the pipes.
In many cases a clog can be removed very easily, sometimes with help from special plumbing tools or rods. Once the clog is resolved the plumber will test the water flow through the drain to ensure that it is running as it should. With proper care you can keep your drains running properly. For example, do not put anything large or obstructive down any drain and do not use the drain to empty cooking grease. These items can quickly stick a drain and stop proper water flow.
If you notice that a drain is running more slowing than it should it is best to have the problem resolved before it worsens. If the drain becomes completely clogged you will be facing a more difficult and potentially serious repair. Contact KJC Drainage for all your plumbing needs.
