Troubleshooting Plumbing Problems

The best tips to solve home plumbing problems immediately. It includes things like checking the P-trap for blockage. There are times when the problem is that the drain is blocked and it must be unblocked as soon as possible. There are some other times it might be that the trap is not sealing. The other times might be that there is clogging in the main line.

The other tip is to check the trap for any blockage or other problem. A little work on the trap will unblock a blocked drain very quickly. If the P-trap is not moving, check the line to make sure there is nothing obstructing it. If the P-trap is not moving, it means that there is something obstructing it and must be removed. If the main line is clogged, there is no doubt that it will get clogged in time.

If the drain is clogged, you must pour a solvent down the drain and try to clear it. A solution might also be poured down the main line to see if it clears it. If it does not clear it, then the clog is further along the line. A solution is poured into the drain and allow it to sit for sometime. If nothing happens after 30 minutes, it means that the clog is still there. The 30 minutes is a guess.

You might think that is not very practical for you to go to the basement and remove a drain when you have a Clogged one, but you do have a back up system. The back up system is a secondary back up that is set up in the basement. It is only for checking the drains. If there is something obstructing the drains, you use the primary back up system. You tell the back up operator to clear it and if it is clear, you turn the primary back off.

If the Clogged Drain is Clogged, Clear the Clogged Drain

If the Drain has no clogs, then you have solved the problem. It is not visible, it is not very convenient, but there is nothing visible that you could not clear with the water and chemical cleaners. If it has a clog, then it is the water and chemical cleaners that have no effect.

If the Water is Not Maintaining the Level of the Pipes, Clear the Drain

In fact if it is not maintaining the level of the pipes, it is better to replace the pipe.

If the Water is Manifested on the Surface, Pipe Replacement is the Solution

If the water is visible and can be seen with the unaided eye, you are then able to see what is causing the water to be there. If the pipe is the cause of the water, then you have a choice. You can choose to replace the pipe or you can use the water and chemical cleaners to remove the pipe and remove the water. If you replace the pipe, you can then add a pipe flange and add chemicals to the flange to stop the water from coming out of the pipe. There are better ways to solve the problem.
