Signs You Need Rooter Services
Each drain in your home has a “P trap.” This is a P or S-shaped area connecting the drain with the drainage pipes. The purpose of the P trap is to hold water and act as a plug so sewage fumes don’t come up into your home through the drains. Unfortunately, the shape of the P trap means that debris can get clogged there easily.
Some clogs occur suddenly, such as when your toddler throws something down the toilet. However, gradual clogs are more common. Debris gets stuck in the P trap and restricts flow. During this phase, water will begin to drain slowly. With toilets, it may take several flushes to completely flush the toilet. It is best to treat drain clogs during this initial phase when water is still flowing. A plunger can help dislodge the clog. Methods like baking soda and vinegar solutions can help with kitchen and bath drain clogs. If the clog is not treated, then it can restrict water flow completely and the clog will have to be manually removed with an auger.
What is a Clog Rooter?
An auger, also sometimes called a drain snake, is a tool which plumbers use to break holes in clogs inside drain pipes. Augers are thin and flexible so they can be snaked inside drain pipes. Coils on their tips allow them to tear up clogs. A rooter is a type of auger. Unlike mechanical augers, clog rooters are motorized, which makes them much more powerful for breaking up tough clogs. Clog rooters also have “claws” at their tips, so the sharp points can tear up clogs better.
For small clogs, such as clogs caused by hair, paper products, or food particles, a manual auger is usually used. A clog rooter is reserved for very tough clogs, such as clogs in sewer mains from tree root growth. Rooters are very powerful and sharp, and they can even bore through pipes. For this reason, a clog rooter should only be operated by a professional plumber with experience.
