What causes a clogged drain in my home? A clogged drain is typically caused by the gradual accumulation of matter which can find its way down the drown like hair and grease. Over time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water through the pipe. When a large amount of debris tried to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and completely block the flow. The result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain seen in most cases.
How do I unclog my drain? While a plunger can sometimes unclog minor obstructions, a stubborn or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers, who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake” to many).
This tool works in the opposite way that a plunger does. While the plunger will push back up the debris, the snake will push the debris back into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction forcing it out through the line. While parts of the clog break up and flush through the drain, the snake helps a plumber gain access to the clog in order to successfully removed the obstruction.
In some cases, our licensed San Francisco plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through the tough clogs which need more power. Snakes are especially handy as they are long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep within a drainpipe to eventually unclog the drain.
