You probably tend to take your plumbing for granted until something goes wrong. A backed up toilet, a clogged sink, or a sudden lack of water pressure are all situations that can cause a definite disturbance in your daily routine, and when you can’t fix the problem on your own, it’s time to call Roto-Rooter, your trusty Nashville plumbers. We’ve got the equipment, the know-how, and the experience to solve residential or commercial plumbing emergencies, perform regular maintenance to keep your plumbing gurgling merrily along, and answer your questions.
A backed up toilet is a homeowner’s nightmare. If plunging doesn’t help, or if you’re plunging frequently or every time you flush, it’s time to call us. Not only is toilet backup unsanitary, it certainly doesn’t make your nose happy, either. The worst case scenario is when raw sewage is bubbling or exploding up from the toilet bowl. In this case, you probably have a blocked branch line between the bathroom and the main sewer line, and you’ll need to get that cleared out. Since it’s unlikely you have the necessary equipment to do that effectively, call your local Roto-Rooter professionals immediately.
Even if sewage isn’t seeping or bursting from the toilet bowl, blocked sewer lines can still be to blame for your toilet not flushing sufficiently. Trees and other water-hungry plants are great at seeking out buried plumbing lines, stealing the water and breaking into the pipes with their strong roots. If you’re having toilet problems and the trees in your yard are looking a little too happy and green, you might have roots in the line, blocking the flow of water. In this case, it’s important to kill the roots and prevent them from returning for as long as possible. Roto-Rooter Root Destroyer and Root X are perfect for the job.
Slow-draining sinks and bathtubs are frustrating and annoying. Shower and bath drains can quickly clog up with hair, making it difficult for water to flow away. If the sink or tub isn’t draining at all but the toilets are still flushing, the most likely explanation is that you need to clean out the drain underneath the sink or tub to remove all the gunk. It’s not a pretty sight, and sometimes it can smell pretty awful, but that’s what we’re trained for. Water that won’t drain can quickly become a health hazard in itself, so don’t put off the phone call to your Nashville plumbers that can get you back to your routine as quickly as possible.
Kitchen sinks are also notorious for getting clogged up, and usually the culprits are grease and food particles rather than hair. Remember to never pour grease down your kitchen sink drain. Though you may pour it in hot as a liquid, after it has cooled it will harden and cling to the inside of your pipes, obstructing water flow. The more grease you pour, the more quickly the pipes will clog. Instead, pour hot grease into a heat-proof bowl and allow it to cool. Then you can dump it in the trash. In the meantime, we’ll be happy to help you get your kitchen sink draining smoothly again.
