How Environmental Pipe Cleaning Can Solve Your Low Water Pressure

May 31, 2019 in Drain Cleaning

Properly working water pressure is something you tend to not think about. The moment your toilet stops draining, or your shower barely lets out a sprinkle however, your water pressure quickly becomes the only thing on your mind. If your water pressure is constantly low and you’ve already tried cleaning your shower head, replacing your aerator, and opening your water valves, it can be a sign that there is a more serious problem going on. It is important to immediately call a specialist before larger issues ensue.

Three Reasons to Call a Specialist For Low Water Pressure:

  • Clogged Water Pipes: A common cause of low water pressure are clogs, particularly in older galvanized pipes. Minerals from water begin to build up over time and cause blockages in the pipe. Grease, rust and dirt also put your pipes at risk. Attempting to clear blocks with chemical drain cleaners will only lead to more issues in the long run, so calling in a professional is necessary to clear out the blocks before it leads to a crack, leak or burst pipe.  
  • Corroding Pipes: For pipes in older homes, corroding is a common cause to many negative plumbing issues. Corrosion in pipes prevents water from flowing freeing, causing your low water pressure. Low water pressure is only the beginning however, as pipe corrosion can also contaminate the water, collapse a pipe and cause severe leakage.
  • Leaks: If your water bill is suddenly extremely high, you notice stains on your wall or pools of water near your cabinets, you may have a leak. A leak can result from a number of underlying causes, but if left unfixed can produce a multitude of future damage aside from your low water pressure.

Why You Should Never Use DIY Methods of Drain Cleaning

April 8, 2019 in Drain Cleaning, General Information

With so many options for DIY drain cleaning available at the local big box store, it’s easy to believe that those are the best options. After all, they’re quick and cheap, right? Well, when it comes to the health of your plumbing, the quickest and cheapest solution may not be what’s best in the long run.

Harmful Chemicals – A popular DIY solution for drain clogs is often as simple as pouring a heavy dose of harsh chemicals down the sink, tub, and shower drains. And though these chemicals are often effective at breaking up organic matter that may be building up, an all-in-one solution is rarely the best solution. Such extreme methods are usually not necessary, when a more gentle solution is available. Harsh DIY chemicals present hazards to human users as well as the environment as a whole, and they may end up causing deterioration to the interior of pipes as well.  

Manual Cleaning – Manual DIY cleaning methods may include removing traps or using snaking tools. While these drain cleaning solutions can prove to be gentle and effective for trained professionals, many property owners end up actually inflicting more damage to their plumbing in the process. Improperly used tools can cause fractures in the pipe system that end up requiring costly repairs. It’s better to leave trap removal and snaking to a trained and licensed plumber.

Solutions – At Environmental Pipe Cleaning, we’re equipped to handle all types of drain cleaning jobs. Scheduling one of our crew members to come out for regular drain cleaning is a great way to improve the function and extend the life of your plumbing system. Residential properties benefit from yearly cleaning, while commercial customers may require monthly maintenance for grease traps.
