Toilet sludge build-up

We all use water which means it must go somewhere. Water we use comes out from a faucet and goes down a drain line. Besides water going down other unknown debris at times sneaks down the drain line as well. Be careful with what goes down your pipes or clogged pipes like below in the picture will happen.

Floor Drain Clogged

Older drains that were cast iron have build up of scale and other deposits as to newer drains get clogged for several other reasons. Newer floor drains get clogged from us living in our homes and enjoying running water to shower, wash clothes and clean dishes. Water that we use goes into and down our pipes into our basements and then out the main line were it eventually ends up in the city sewer.

Floor drains get clogged from hard water build up, food, grease, lint and many other products that we use in our homes on a daily basis. If you have a perfect sewer system and water flows properly you won’t back up as much but should also clean your drains once a year. Just like our cars go in couple times a year for an oil change our drains need their own type of oil change as well.

1 Potato 2

I remember when I was younger going to the mall and seeing a restaurant called 1 Potato 2. The lines were long and people seemed to love it. I’m not sure why I named this post after that restaurant but It was on my mind.

Waiting in line to check out one night from my local grocery store I heard a customer just right in front of me talk about their drain lines. Being a plumber I obviously turned one ear to their conversation and listened hopefully without them knowing. I caught them talking about their main sewer line clogging up on them earlier in the week and they had no idea where to turn and didn’t know who to call. They went on and said how they called 5 different local companies and they all gave such outrageous prices to come handles their problem. They ended up hiring the best sounding company. Not saying any names of local companies they got charged premium rates for less then 60 minutes of actual work performed.

I’ve learned two things from listening to their conversation that supposedly I pretended not to hear.

1. Make sure you know you house, duplex, condo etc..
Make sure you know your drain system and understand how plumbing works. Or at least understand the very minimal. Understand that when you start to see a back-up call a local plumber right away. Any kinda of slow drain weather it’s your kitchen sink, floor drain, laundry tub, main sewer line, bathroom sink or bathtub make sure to call asap and get on their list. Hesitating will just prolong you getting any professional to your home and addressing the issue. I’ve notice in life when a problem happens, fix it or it will cost more in the end. I don’t know about any of you but money is hard earned and I wouldn’t want to spend it foolishly.

2. When buying a property know the services you might need in the future and do your due diligence right away before any problems come up. Know who your gonna hire for your plumbing, heating, electrical, roofing etc.
You’ll be better off and less stressed when the situation comes up (which it will faster then you think).

Right before they left I introduced myself and told them I work for a local plumbing and drain cleaning company called Ken’s Sewer Service. After they explained more about their experience with the plumbing company they hired they were thrilled to have met me. They told me they learned there lesson from this terrible experience and will move on and be smarter in the future. They took my business card and called me the next week for a new project they wanted help with.
