If you are having plumbing problems and you would like to try to fix it yourself, the first thing that you are going to need to do is figure out how what the problem is. In some cases, this is going to be very easy and in other circumstances this may be a bit more difficult. There are many different and sometimes unique plumbing problems in Sacramento and there is no way that you can know how to diagnose each one, so learning some of the basics is a good place to start.
First, when you are dealing with a clogged drain, understand that there are different types of clogs and they will need to be treated differently. However, the best way to determine what kind of a clog you have is to try the over the counter drain cleaners first. This will give you some idea of what type of a clog it is. If the drain cleaner clears out the clog, then the clog was made from things like buildup and hair that has gone down the drain. If the clog is not cleared using this stuff, then this is a tougher clog and might requires a stronger remedy. In this case, it is a good idea to talk to your local professional plumber.
Second, when you are dealing with a clogged toilet, you can first try to use a plunger. This will work in most cases. If you have tried it and it has not worked, I would recommend calling the professional plumber in the area to come and use a mechanical drain cleaning snake to clear out the clog.
Third, if the plumbing issue is a result of something like a toy being tossed down a drain, then in that case you will need to call for help. It may be frustrating to have Johnny’s toy be the cause of a needed repair, but you are better off handling that up front sooner rather than later so that you get your home’s plumbing back to normal much quicker.
