A clogged drain is a pesky, mess-inducing inconvenience that can cause serious damage if it goes untreated. One of the most common causes of a clogged-drain is rinsing excess fats or cooking oils down the kitchen sink. Most of us do it from time to time without thinking about it. These liquid fats solidify in the cold pipes and create clogs. For a quick and easy fix, fit all your tubs and shower drains with a strainer that catches hair and soap chips, and clean the strainer regularly.
Whether your clog is in a kitchen drain, basement drain, utility/laundry-room drain or even an outdoor drain, our professionals are here to help.
Our professionals come fully-equipped with sewer-line cameras that are sent through your home’s sewer lines to expose and diagnose the problems with your piping. This is particularly helpful in the event you would need your line replaced or repaired.
Using high-powered water jets, we clear and clean commercial pipes. In addition to keeping your pipes clean and operating smoothly, routine jet cleaning can save you money by preventing costly property damage.
For minor clogs, they’re fine, but never use them on a drain that is completely clogged. The caustic ingredients are trapped in your pipes, and it can severely damage them. If you can’t snake the drain yourself, call Catons to do so. Never use caustic drain openers in a drain that has a garbage disposal.
Noises can be fairly common in plumbing supply lines. If a washer in a faucet or valve is loose, you’ll hear it rattling or knocking. If the sound occurs when you open and close faucets rapidly, it generally means pipes are loose, and can be corrected by anchoring pipes more securely. If it really bothers you, you can add air chambers at the end of long pipe runs. Their installation will probably require a plumbing professional.
