Clogged & Slow Drains
As a homeowner, you will need a plumber that knows drain cleaning. Whenever you have a clogged drain you need to know who to call. John is a highly-rated Yuba City plumbing company. During bad economic times, we’ve seen many people try to fix complicated plumbing problems themselves, usually, this ends up costing more money at the end of the day.
Sometimes basic drain clogs and blockages can be cleared fairly easily. A clogged toilet can be cleared with a plunger in most cases. If the plunger doesn’t do the job at this point, you should be calling a professional plumber that will know what to do.
Most homeowners are familiar with the sewer rooter machine known as “snake”. Snakes or drain cleaning machines will do the job most of the time. A snake can clear grease, minor roots, and hair inside the drain/sewer lines. But what most homeowners don’t know is that the snake won’t clear the drains 100%. For Example, when dealing with grease the snake will open a hole to temporarily clear the blockage, but with little time the drain will clog again. This is the main reason why sometimes you will have to clean the same drain many times. When it comes to roots, if the roots are too big, even with a cutter blade at the tip of the snake will not do the trick. The snake could get stuck, it won’t clean a drain or if it clears the drain it will only be part of the diameter not the full diameter of the pipe.
Did you know that build-up inside of a dirty sewer drain line can develop into a clog or a blockage of some kind? If left alone, that clog or blockage will slowly choke the flow of water waste through your sewer system. With a decrease in flow, lines can drain slowly to the point that they will eventually back up into your home.
You don’t want your drains to be slow. In addition to a clogged drain problem in your sewer pipes, slow drains also waste your time. Waiting for a sink drain to empty is not fun. Waiting for a shower or tub drain to empty can be painful and gross. You don’t want to have to endure any more time than necessary with drains that are not operating properly – especially when there is a simple solution to the problem.
At John’s Rooter & Plumbing service, we know that a regular drain cleaning program eliminates any possibility of organic waste building up in your pipes. With clear pipes, everything runs smoothly and quickly. We can clear your drains in several ways but one of the fastest methods is through hydro jetting.
With a regular drain cleaning maintenance program, you will be assured that there will be no slow drains anywhere in your plumbing system. In fact, having your drains cleaned regularly is good preventative maintenance. It also makes good sense. If you keep your drains clear and free-flowing, they won’t cause you any problems. It’s a lot like keeping your vehicle current on oil and lube services. When you do that, your vehicle runs well and lasts longer. The same goes for your plumbing. Drain cleaning extends the life of your sewer drain lines by blasting out anything that could possibly develop into a problem such as a clog or break if left alone for too long.

Clay Pipes in Yuba Cit:
- Roots growing into fractured, broken old sewage systems. Roots are trying to find water and nutrients that the drain system has. Roots are the main source of clogged main drain systems. Roots can penetrate old clay pipes. Old clay sewer systems are the most prone to root problems. Clay pipes were not watertight in the old days. Small leaks enable tree root to easily break into the joints of old aging sewage systems.
- Old clay pipelines were assembled primarily in 3ft lengths. After being undergrounds for many years shifting, and settling of soil around the pipe will cause offsets. Offsets in pipelines will restrict flow, thus causing build-up that ends in clogged drain lines.
- Accumulation of sludge takes place primarily in second drains pipes like showers, bathroom sinks, as well as clothes washing machine drain pipes. As the soap is lugged down the tubes, it will, in time build up on the wall surfaces of the pipelines. This takes place gradually, the water could instantly stop flowing due to the accumulation of soap, and sludge build-up.
- Oil accumulation takes place much like soap build-up, only much quicker. This happens primarily in the kitchen area. The kitchen sink is the sink that gets used the most in a home. As the oil is brought down the pipeline by warm water from washing dishes and dishwashers, it is cooled down by the air vent pipelines enabling cool air right into the drainpipe. When the warm oil cools down, it will adheres to the wall surfaces limiting the flow of water. Eventually, this becomes another clogged drain line.
Is your sewage system slow or not draining at all, are your toilets clogged, and making funny noises? They could be obstructed. Stay clear from utilizing chemicals discovered in many of the store’s label as drain cleaning liquids. They are not very reliable at eliminating obstructions in sewer lines. Also with time contribute to the damage of older pipelines.
At John’s, we recommend cabling options and also hydro-jetting for clearing build-up within the wall surfaces of pipes. Snaking and hydro-jetting methods work best for clogged sewer drains.
