Once a drain stops flowing as it should, there’s no telling what’s lurking in the pipes – until it’s inspected by a professional.

How to Fix a Slow Bathtub Drain 

When a bathtub drain becomes clogged, homeowners may notice a large puddle of water forming in the shower the longer they use it. This issue is usually caused by a buildup of hair, soap scum, and other debris. The first step to resolving this type of clog is to take off the stopper and remove any accessible obstructions. Great care must be taken to not push the blockage further into the pipe, as this will make the issue worse. When performed successfully, this step may be all that’s required to restore the flow of water in a shower. 

In other situations, the clog is further down in the pipes and inaccessible without specialized equipment. Professional plumbers often use drain snakes to remove these more difficult clogs. The snake is fed into the pipes and maneuvered until it latches onto the obstruction. The snake and the clog are then brought back through the pipes, restoring a smooth flow of water to the bathtub. Because improper usage of a drain snake can damage the pipes, a licensed plumber should always handle this type of situation. 

How to Avoid a Clogged Kitchen Sink

A clogged kitchen sink can significantly disrupt anyone’s day. Cooking, cleaning, and washing dishes are just some of the tasks that can’t be done efficiently and effectively without a properly draining sink. How can this inconvenience be avoided? 

Keep kitchen drains clean and free of clogs by: 

  • Being cautious about what goes down the drain
  • Refraining from putting oils, fats, or grease into the sink
  • Using a mesh drain strainer or basket 
  • Disposing of food scraps in the trash can
  • Ensuring a garbage disposal is working properly 
  • Pouring baking soda and vinegar down the drain 

When a kitchen has a garbage disposal installed, it’s easy to think just about anything can go down the sink. This, however, is not the case. Certain items such as coffee grounds, eggshells, fibrous fruit and vegetable peels, paper products, meat and bones, and starchy foods should not be placed in a garbage disposal. 

If a kitchen sink does become clogged, there’s no need to panic. Knight Plumbing is here to quickly tackle the issue. We’ll ensure the job is done right the first time!
