If you’ve got a hard to find blockage, it’s often best to call a professional to ensure you’ve had your property’s plumbing thoroughly inspected. There are several tools used by professional plumbers that help to locate difficult clogs, but before we discuss how they work, it’s important to understand what caused your blockage in the first place.
Common Causes of Plumbing Clogs
You may be surprise to find out that a lot of plumbing problems are the direct result of one of the most commonly used devices in your building (other than your toilet, of course). A major culprit is often your garbage disposal, which is essentially meant to diffuse small amounts of leftover food. Unfortunately many people don’t fully understand what should and should not be washed into the garbage disposal. Foods to avoid are:
– banana peels
– foods that will not be easily broken up into small pieces
– fat and grease
Even when avoiding the common culprits, many people will inevitably get a clog from time to time. If you find yourself in this predicament, remember that’s its best to consult with a professional for a variety of reasons.
Do I Really Need a Camera?
The reason professional plumbers use a camera is that they can get a complete picture of what is causing your plumbing issue so they determine the most efficient way to resolve it. This efficiency save you, the property owner, time, money, and a lot of aggravation. And for the professional plumber, using a camera removes the guess work, allowing them to get the job done right.
