Clogged Drain

Clogged Drain

When a clogged shower drain, sink drain, or toilet gets too much for you to handle, a professional plumber is always available to help.

Clogged Sink Drain

Any homeowner or business owner experiences plumbing problems from time to time. Even if you perform regular maintenance and take great care of your pipes and drains, sometimes accidents happen. Call GM Plumbing for 24/7 service throughout the Orange County, Los Angeles, and Long Beach areas.

The kitchen is the most common location for clogged sinks. Food scraps and waste often go down the drain, and sometimes they can accumulate and cause blockages. The garbage disposal can be overwhelmed and jam due to an obstruction.

You can avoid most clogged sink drains by being careful about what food you wash away, avoiding meats, high-starch and high-fiber foods, and absolutely prohibiting coffee grounds and bacon grease, which solidify when they cool.

When a clogged sink does happen, though, a plumber has many ways to tackle the problem, including by plunging, cleaning the pipes manually, or using a drain snake.

Clogged Shower Drain

A clogged shower is an inconvenient problem, since showers tend to get used every day, sometimes multiple times a day. Shower clogs can be caused by buildups of hair, soap scum, and grease, and even sometimes the minerals in your water.

If the problem is a clump of hair, these can often be pulled out by hand, and you can install a drain cover to catch them before they fall down the drain.

A plumber can unclog a shower in several ways, including using a drain snake to hook onto debris deep inside the pipe and manually remove it.

Clogged Toilet

Toilet pipes are narrower than most people expect, and whenever anything enters them that they’re not designed to handle, clogs are very likely. Causes of toilet clogs include wads of toilet paper and odd items such as toys and tampons.

Most toilet clogs can be cleared by using a plunger, which every homeowner or business owner should keep handy near the bathroom. If this doesn’t work, a plumber can use more advanced methods like an electric or manual auger.
