Plumber repairing kitchen sink pipesA clogged drain is one of the most frustrating things that can go wrong in your bathroom or kitchen.

All you want to do is wash your hands or shower, but you get a pool of standing water instead. Or, even worse, you try to take a bath only for your tub to take two hours to rid itself of water.

If you’ve been pouring “drain cleaner” chemicals down the sink and using your plunger aggressively, all to no avail, it may be time to call for professional help. Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning provides high-quality clogged drain repairs throughout Carbon, Schuylkill, and surrounding counties.

Signs You Need Drain Repair

Is your drain causing you problems? It might be time to consider drain repairs from Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. Ignoring drain issues can lead to more significant problems down the road.

Look out for these signs that you need drain repair:

  • Slow draining: If water takes longer than usual to drain from your sinks, bathtubs, or showers, it could indicate a clog or blockage in the pipes.
  • Foul odors: Unpleasant odors from your drains are a sign that something’s wrong. This could be due to rotting food debris or grease buildup within the pipes.
  • Gurgling noises: Do you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds when using your sinks or flushing the toilet? These noises could result from air trapped in the pipes due to a clog.
  • Water backing up: Water backing up into other fixtures when you use a particular drain is a red flag. Water backing up into the sink when you run the dishwasher or use the washing machine indicates a blockage in the drain.
  • Multiple clogged drains: If you have more than one drain that’s clogged at the same time, it likely points to a more serious issue in your plumbing system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about clogged drains in Carbon County and eastern Pennsylvania include:

Can I unclog my own drain?

Sometimes, but you need to know your limits. Don’t use a drain snake or wires; they can damage your fixtures or the drain itself. Try a plunger first. You can also use natural (never chemical) drain cleaners: Pour boiling water down the drain, then add 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of vinegar. Wait five to 10 minutes, then add more hot water.

Our technicians use a camera and other specialized tools for difficult clogs. We’re also experienced in sewer line repair and replacement.

How do plumbers unclog drains?

If more than one drain is running slow or clogging, you may have a sewer line clog. We’ll use a camera to locate the problem area and then, depending on the cause, use mechanical methods to break it loose.

Will trying to unclog my drain harm my pipes?

Clogged external sewer lines are probably not your fault. Every six minutes, an underground line is damaged, usually because a property owner or worker didn’t know the location of the lines. You may have damaged sewer lines due to:

  • Age
  • Tree roots
  • Utility work

Why do I have a sewer line clog? I never flush things that cause clogs.

If you use caustic chemicals, you can permanently damage pipes made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Chemicals can also damage older metal plumbing pipes. If misused, drain augers can damage your plumbing pipes or even make a bad clog worse.

Our advice? Don’t risk making a bad situation worse; know when to call a professional.
