Q: Do I Have to Hire a Professional Plumber for Drain Repairs?
Q: How Often Should You Clean Your Sewer Lines?
- Clogged drains: Use a drain snake or wire hanger to break up or fish out common clogs. Be sure to run water at the same time to flush the blockage down the pipe. If that doesn’t work, try pouring a pot of boiling water down the line. A plunger can also come in handy when dealing with clogs. Just fill the tub or sink with water and use the plunger like you would in a toilet.
- Burst pipes: If you’re dealing with a burst pipe, consider using a pipe repair clamp as a temporary solution. You can either clamp it over the burst area or screw it on. Alternatively, try applying self-fusing tape. And if the damaged section is no longer tan 50mm, try burst pipe coupling. If all fails, call a plumber.
- Broken water heater: If you have a gas-powered water heater, start by checking the pilot lights. If the light is on, your unit won’t produce hot water. Check the temperature setting to ensure somebody didn’t turn it down accidentally. If you suspect mineral deposits could be the problem, drain the tank and flush out the sediment. If your tank is leaking, call a plumber, as chances are you may need to replace the unit.
