How To Use Drain Rods To Unblock Your Drain

Posted by | Blog, Drain Repair, Sewer Care | No Comments

drain rodsWe have written about the different ways on how you can get rid of drain blockages. You can use the ever so reliable plunger and plumbing snake. You may also take advantage of natural drain unblockers like baking soda and vinegar, enzymatic drain cleaners and even Alka Seltzer. However, we just want to ask. Have you ever tried using drain rods? If your answer is no, then this is a lucky day for you because that’s just what we’ll talk about on our post.

What are drain rods?

Drain rods are plumbing tools that are used to get rid of sewer and drain clogs. These usually come in sets, with each set consisting of rods measuring about a meter long. They used to be made of metal which, obviously, made them stiff and hard to maneuver inside the pipes. Today, they are designed in such a way that they’re not only flexible but also durable and hard to break.

How are they used?

Rods are connected together with the help of screws. These connections are referred to as the “joints” and are in fact considered as the weakest part of drain rods. Experts even refer to them as the Achilles’ heels. Why? Well because they are the ones that break easily when the rods are bent hard or forced to bend. Note that there are types that make use of pins to secure the connections. There are also those which ends have square pegs to create more secured connections.

What are drain rods made from?

These plumbing tools are made from polypropylene, a material used in packaging, labeling and also in manufacturing plastic stuff. Polypropylene is chemical-resilient which makes drain rods suitable for cleaning drains and sewers. Meaning to say, even if your plumbers use chemicals to get rid of blockages in the sewers, the toxic content won’t actually hurt the rods. We should also not forget that there are still rods made from tensile steel. These are the most expensive type. They feature joints made from brass or steel and are cadmium plated which makes them rust-free.

Any tips when using drain rods?

Well, the most important thing you have to remember is that most rods are screwed together by turning them clockwise. With that in mind, you should never turn your rod the other way when you’re clearing your drains. Otherwise, you just might break the connection, leaving rods floating inside your drainpipes. Also remember to make use of appropriate protection, aka rubber gloves, when unblocking drains to prevent health issues.

How Does An Instant Hot Water Heater Work?

Posted by | Blog, Water Heater Installation & Maintenance | No Comments

instant hot water heaterSo you have been using your tank-type water heater for years and now it’s no longer working. Chances are, you’ll still have it checked by professionals to find out if it can still be repaired or the otherwise. If it doesn’t, then you’ll have to put up with boiling water every time you want to take a hot bath. But if you are thinking about investing on a new heating system, then you might want to consider an instant hot water heater. Before you go crazy just thinking about how much it costs, let us first weigh its advantages and disadvantages. How does it work in the first place? Why is it referred to as the demand-type water heater? Read on and get some answers.

How does a hot water heater work?

An instant hot water heater obviously does not have a tank where it’s supposed to store water for heating. It heats water by demand. That means it only makes use of its heating capability whenever you turn on your hot water tap or your shower’s hot water knob. This type of heating system is popular in Japan and in Europe for quite some time and is now gaining popularity in the United States. Now there are two main types of tankless water heaters: the whole house heater and the point of use heater.

The point of use heater is relatively small and can even be stored inside a cabinet. What it does is supply hot water to a specific plumbing fixture only. For instance, you only want to get hot water from your kitchen tap. Thus, you’ll have the heater connected only to that faucet. You can also have another unit connected to your shower if you are a sucker for warm baths.

Meanwhile, the whole house heater can supply hot water on more than one fixture. You can have it connected to your dishwasher, your shower, your kitchen faucet or anywhere else you’d like to get instant hot water from. Just remember to check the flow rate of the unit you’re eyeing to make sure that it suits your needs.

What are its advantages?

The tag price is one reason why homeowners disregard the purchase of a tankless water heater. It’s really more expensive than the traditional tank-type units. However, if you’ll consider its advantages, you might actually be convinced into buying one.

First of all, since the heater doesn’t have a tank and doesn’t heat such a large amount of water every time you demand it, it produces less energy or standby heat loss. Meaning, it won’t only save you money on your electricity bill but also save you money on your water bill. To put it simply, it only heats water as needed. Another advantage is that it is durable. As compared to traditional heaters that can last 7 to 10 years, instantaneous units are known to last for as long as 20 years. When it comes to maintenance and repair, a tankless unit is also less demanding. It doesn’t have a tank that you’ll need to flush and check on regularly. You won’t have to replace anode rods or worry about leaks in your basement. That said, it will also save you a considerable amount of repair expenses.

So what do you think? Is an instant hot water heater meant for you? If you need advice or help with water heater installation, simply call the best plumbing service providers in the US!

How To Unclog Drain With Vinegar Efficiently

Posted by | Bathroom Repair, Blog, Drain Repair, Kitchen Plumbing | No Comments

unclog drain with vinegarWe believe nobody has ever been exempted from experiencing clogged drains. Unless you’re so meticulous when it comes to housekeeping, you’ll sooner or later encounter slow draining or standing water in your sink. And that’s not a serious problem at all. Clogs are easy to resolve as compared to other plumbing issues. In fact, instead of using strong chemicals, most of us professionals in the plumbing industry recommended the use of natural home remedies for DIY purposes. You don’t really need toxic cleaners to get rid of clogs because they’ll only damage your pipes over time. So today, let us share with you a detailed DIY guide on removing drain clogs with the help of vinegar.

1. Get a cup of white vinegar or vinegar concentrate. Pour it into the drain pipe and let it stand for about 20 to 30 minutes.

2. When the time is up, flush your sink or tub drain with hot water. It is also recommended to make use of freshly boiled water instead of hot water from the tap.

3. Get your plunger and fill the washbasin with water. Position your plunger right on top of the hole. Start plunging and make sure that you’ll maintain a consistent, slow pace.

4. After about 15 to 20 repetitions on the plunger, it’s time to check if the method worked. Run the tap and observe as the water drains. If there are still issues, you should repeat the process and add baking soda to your supplies.

5. Pour a cup of baking soda into the drain hole. Once done, pour a cup of vinegar. Let the two ingredients create a fizzing effect and get rid of the clog.

6. After a few minutes, pour boiling hot water into the drain. Repeat the plunger activity again. Check the drain and make sure it’s working properly. If it’s not doing what it’s supposed to, then you might need to remove the trap and hook the clog out. When it fails, just call your friendly plumber!
