Modern plumbing systems are actually pretty amazing when you stop and think about all of the intricacies that go into designing and installing them. While they are durable and tend to last for a long time, the near–constant use that your drains endure can eventually lead them to develop a number of common issues. Lovotti Air proudly offers fast, high quality and affordable drain repair service in Stockton, CA. Take a look below, and if you’re having any of these problems make sure that you call us for service.
- Clogs – This problem is probably familiar to all homeowners. We’ve all had to grab the plunger and force loose clogs in our homes’ drains at some point. Clogs can happen because of mineral deposits from hard water, food waste, solid waste, tree roots and many other issues.
- Leaks – Another common problem with drains is leaks. If you notice dried water spots or actual puddles near your home’s sink drains it likely means that there is an issue. Leaks can develop because of poor workmanship, old age or cracks in the pipes.
- Noises – If your drains make any gurgling sounds when you run the faucet or when you use another drain somewhere else in your home, it’s usually the result of a clog or a pressure imbalance. As water moves through your pipes, it pushes air in front of it and it also creates a vacuum of space behind it. The gurgling is caused by that air pushing its way through the clog.
- Odors – Odors can be a big issue with drains. If you look under your bathroom or kitchen sink you should see a curved piece of pipe which is often referred to as a drain trap or the U–bend. This curve in the pipe creates a water seal that traps sewer odors from escaping out your drain. If the seal dries out, it will allow foul odors to come from your sinks.
