Common Drain Issues

The good news is that most of the most common drain issues have easy-to-identify warning signs.

  • Clogs: Clogs are one of the most common drain issues. They will require some form of clogged drain removal.
  • Slow drains: Your drains should empty about as quickly as they fill up. If they start to pool with water, it is a sign something is slowing down the process. This could be a clog or something else entirely.
  • Unpleasant smells: A problem with your drain could cause sewer gases to release from your pipe. Plus, clogs and other issues can emit smells of their own. In any case, a bad odor is a sign something is wrong.
  • Unusual noises: When your drains start making gurgling, bubbling, or other noises, it indicates there is an issue.

If you leave them untreated, these problems often get worse. So, taking care of the issue early in the process is best.

DIY Methods for Drain Cleaning

You can tackle many of the most common drain issues with DIY drain cleaning techniques:

  • Start with a plunger: A plunger may be just what you need to knock out a small clog. You can use a regular plunger or find a dedicated sink plunger.Use a drain snake on tougher clogs: A simple drain snake will go deep into your drains. Drain snaking directly tackles the clog and may be able to pull it out.
  • Baking soda and vinegar: You can make a basic drain cleaning solution with baking soda and vinegar. Pour some baking soda into and onto the drain, and then add vinegar. After letting the solution sit for a few minutes, you can pour hot water to flush it out.

When trying any of these methods, use appropriate safety procedures to protect yourself. Be extra careful if you do anything that utilizes chemicals.

In addition, don’t attempt DIY drain cleaning unless you are sure you can avoid causing damage to the drains. The safest option for both you and your drains is to utilize professional drain cleaning.

Professional Drain Cleaning Services

When dealing with serious drain issues, the best course of action is to contact professionals like the expert plumbers at Covenant Plumbing. Our professionals have drain cleaning experience and specialized equipment that you may not have access to.

We have cameras that can dive into the pipes and locate the clog. We use high-quality drain snakes and machines capable of hydro-jetting for drain cleaning. Finally, we bring years of experience and knowledge to every job.

Preventive Maintenance

If you hope to avoid drain clogs entirely, you can do some preventative maintenance. Some helpful practices include:

  • Using drain covers: A drain cover will prevent items from making it into the drain, where they can form a clog.
    Regular cleaning: Don’t just let hair and debris start to gather around your drain. Every now and then, wipe what you can away.
  • Proper drain usage: Not everything can go down the drain. Try to prevent grease, hair, eggshells, and other food items from getting into the drain.
  • Routine inspections: Scheduling routine drain inspections with a professional will allow you to catch issues before they become a problem. You can schedule this in tandem with full drain-clearing services to keep everything running smoothly.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Often Do I Need Professional Drain Cleaning?

You need professional drain cleaning about every one to three years. The exact length depends on how often you experience issues. 

Should I Use a Store-Bought Drain Cleaner?

You can sometimes use a store-bought drain cleaner, but only sparingly. While a chemical drain cleaner may help remove a clog, it can also harm your pipes in a way that has long-lasting repercussions. 

Is Professional Drain Cleaning Different From Regular Drain Cleaning?

Yes, professional drain cleaning is different from regular drain cleaning. Professional drain cleaning and clearing often necessitates using heavy equipment and a great deal of plumbing knowledge to give you better, more thorough results.

I called for an estimate on running a new gas line to my pool heater. The person on the phone was friendly and very helpful in setting up an appointment that very day! Shane and David came on time …. Introduced themselves …and got to work quickly. I had an estimate within a half hour and the estimate was half as much as the one another plumber had given to me! Shane had suggestions on how best to do the job and indicated that he had completed lots of similar jobs. I had a great deal of confidence in him right away.Then I asked how long the job would take and how quickly they could schedule it. That’s when the big surprise came! The other plumber had told me he would have to check the schedule and said “maybe within the next two weeks.” Shane from Covenant Plumbing said “we can do it right now …. and it will only take a couple of hours.” I said “let’s do it.”Shane and David finished the job in a little over an hour and the new pool heater fired up right away. The new gas line looks great and works great. I could not be happier with the work they did for me. From my initial phone call and the friendly voice on the other end of the line to the completion of the job …. It was a great experience and I wholeheartedly recommend Covenant Plumbing!And recently…….Covenant did their annual inspection (a great bonus they provide) and found a few issues that needed repair. Jordan (a former Marine) found the problems …. did the repairs and even replaced a faulty toilet in just a few hours. Once again, I could not be happier with Covenant Plumbing. They are my plumbers!

Our sump pump went out sometime in the last few days, not sure exactly when. Called Covenant Thursday AM, and by 2:00 same day, Darren was out to provide several options for replacement. We had a new one fully installed a half hour later. Ready for Mother Nature.
Jessica Lynn S.
Really impressed with this company. Easy to schedule appointments online, timely confirmation emails & texts, texts to let you know they’re on their way, AND also WHO is coming with their picture and some personal info. I was home by myself and knew exactly who was coming to the door. All that alone made me feel good and no work was done yet. Kudos to Shane who explained everything, offered to cover his shoes to protect my floors, answered all of my questions, gave me options, and had a van full of anything he might need to help. Total professional, kind, and courteous, and as I did my work from home, he did his work at my home. I signed and paid for everything on the spot via a tablet and received my receipt via email instantly. Highly recommend Covenant Plumbing to anyone in central Illinois.
