If you have ever had a clogged drain at home, then you know just what an important part drains are to your plumbing system – and how they can impact your daily life! Drains carry waste to the sanitary sewer, control flooding and remove waste products from manufacturing.
To understand how drains can get clogged, it’s best to get a good understanding of how they work. Drains contain a trap to stop materials that fall in and block them; then there is a vent that removes gases like methane that are formed by the decomposition of waste. The S trap is that twisty, windy tube you can see under sink drains. S traps catch materials that might clog the drain further down and they trap gases that can back up in plumbing. Vents carry these gases off and away from the plumbing.
You have no doubt seen countless commercials about liquid drain cleaners. While these may provide some temporary relief, it’s best to get the problem fixed by a Phoenix plumber professional like one of the plumbers at Chas Roberts. This will benefit you and your pipes more in the long run.
