DIY Natural Drain Unblockers For Homeowners

Posted by | Blog, Drain Repair | No Comments

drain unblockersOnce in a while, you’ll find a drain or two in your home clogged with scum, dirt, food particles or waste that get into your drainpipes. Fortunately, it is not that difficult to get rid of blockages. However, we have always recommended the use of natural home remedies instead of harsh chemical cleaners. Well, actually most plumbers do and that’s because toxic ingredients in chemical cleaners may eventually damage your pipes in the long run. So if you are looking for natural solutions to get rid of blockages in your pipes, here’s a list of the best and easiest remedies you can make on your own.

1. Boiling Water

And you don’t have to make this one! You simply have to boil a kettle of water, pour it down the drain and let it wash away the sticky particles that have clung onto your drainpipes. This is also very effective for grease and oily substances that go down your drains. If you want to sterilize your sink, you can also use boiling water, too!

2. Baking Soda and Vinegar

Okay. You may have heard about good old baking soda and vinegar from your grandparents! True enough, these two cooking ingredients have long been used to clear clogs in plumbing systems. Simply pour a cup of your preferred baking soda brand into the drain. Follow up with a cup of vinegar. Remember, the ratio is 1 is to 1. Let the two ingredients create a chemical reaction. The bubbling effect will remove the substances that are stuck on the walls of your drainpipes. Once the fizzing in the pipe is over, pour boiling water to wash the ingredients off.

3. Alka Seltzer Tablets & Water

So you don’t have baking soda in your cupboard. Don’t worry. We’re pretty sure that you have Alka Seltzer tablets in your medicine cabinet! Drop three pieces into the drain and follow up with a cup of vinegar. You should expect a fizzing reaction like what happens when you use baking soda and vinegar. Let the reaction last and once the bubbling effect has settled, pour boiling water to clean the pipes.

4. Baking Soda & Lemon Juice

Lemon juice in this case is only a substitute in case you don’t have vinegar in stock. Note that lemon juice is more expensive and yet it smells a lot better when used on your drain. After all, we use lemon as a natural drain freshener! As usual, pour a cup of baking soda and follow it up with a cup of lemon juice.

5. Salt, Borax & Vinegar

People have been experimenting on other home remedies and we found this mixture also effective. Just combine a quarter cup of salt, a quarter cup of borax and also a quarter cup of vinegar. Pour the mixture into the drain and follow it up with plenty of boiling water. That should clear your drain effectively although it might take a while longer than the other remedies provided above.

We hope that these DIY natural drain unblockers will help you get rid of clogs in your drains. If DIY isn’t your thing, just find the most reputed US plumbing company!

Troubleshooting & Maintaining Gas Hot Water Heaters

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

gas hot water heatersWe bet none of you would want to ever find out that your expensive water heating system is already broken. Who would, right? These kinds of plumbing appliances aren’t easy to purchase because they’re costly. But despite their high price tags, we still invest our hard-earned money on them because we need them. How can we take a bath in a cold winter morning without it? How can we clean our drains right on without having to boil water on the stove? We need a hot water heater at home because it provides us a great deal of convenience. And so if you have one at home, you better take care of it properly to prolong its life. With all these being said, let us share some troubleshooting and maintenance tips with you today!

1. At one point, you’ll experience a problem or two with your hot water heater. It could be its failure to or inadequate supply of hot water ; rust-colored water; foul odor in the water; leakages (especially around the base) or the presence of weird sounds such as low rumblings, high-pitched whining or popping noises.

2. Hard water contains mineral deposits that accumulate at the base of your water heater tank over time. When they get too many, they may create clogs in the system and affect your supply of hot water. Even the quality of water may also get affected negatively. With that said, it is important to flush your water heater tank regularly. Doing so will dispose of the mineral deposits that are trapped at the bottom of the tank.

3. Now when something’s wrong with the appliance and you want to try to figure out the main cause of the problem, you’ll have to go through some safety measures first. You have to ensure that the power is off before tinkering with the heater. Simply turn off the circuit breaker or the fuse that power the appliance up. Switch the gas pilot control valve’s setting to “pilot”. Last but not the least, make sure that you also shut off the water supply.

4. When your gas water heater isn’t supplying hot water in your home, there could be a problem with the thermocouple, the gas pilot or the gas pilot control valve. You can test the gas pilot flame or its pilot operation. You may also tighten the thermocouple or change the gas pilot control valve with a new unit.

5. When you’re getting inadequate supply of hot water in your home, your unit may be undersized for your demands; the dip tube may be damaged; you may have a faulty installation or there may be issues with your gas supply or with the appliance controls.

6. When hot water in your home is rust-colored, you should check your anode rod because it’s probably failing. Another reason is that corrosion may be happening inside the glass-lined tank.

7. If your water smells like rotten eggs, there may already be bacteria inside your tank which is the usual case for those who use sacrificial anode rods. The tank should be flushed then cleaned using hydrogen peroxide. The anode rod should also be changed.

8. When you hear weird sounds from the hot water heater, flush the tank. The sound may be coming from the sediments that have already built up at the bottom of the container.

9. Leaks found at the base of the water heating system may be due to several factors including a faulty T&P valve; a leak from another plumbing connection or a leaking water tank.

Easy DIY Fixes For A Washing Machine Drain Clogged

Posted by | Blog, Plumbing Appliances | No Comments

washing machine drain cloggedYour washing machine is one of the appliances that you highly value in your home. Without it, you’ll either be spending money paying for laundry services or end up washing your clothes by hand. So what would it be? We bet no one would ever want to spend so much time taking care of dirty laundry or shell out money for something that can actually be done in less than an hour. The thing is, it’s not only the appliance itself that breaks or malfunctions at times. Sometimes it’s your very plumbing that prevent you from using your clothes washer. In most cases, a drain clogged is what you’ll experience. Because of all the lint, dirt, mud and all the other particles that go through your pipes, they end up blocked up. With that said, we want to share with you a quick DIY guide on how to fix a washing machine drain that’s clogged! Read on and learn!

1. Find the location of your drain. It could be behind or under your washing machine. Once you’ve located it, you have to disconnect that pipe tubing attached to it in order to access the main drain. Just for the sake of this tutorial, you can use the unclogger solution that you use at home. Just follow its manufacturer instructions and pour the mixture into the very drain. Let it sit around for the recommended time then pour a bucket of water to check if the clog has already been removed.

2. If not, you’ll have to try getting rid of the blockage using your handy plumbing snake. Insert the end of the wire / coil into the hole and rotate the handle to keep pushing it in. Keep turning the crank to break the clog and slowly pull it out once done.

3. Now if the clog is too nasty to be removed, you can attach the snake to a drill. There’s usually a off-hand attachment for common home drills and that’s what you need to use. Just run the end of the plumbing snake into the drain until it touches the clog. Hold the drill with both hands and turn the drill on to create a powerful circular motion and break the blockage. Again, slowly pull the snake out of the drain and dispose of the sediments or blockage properly.

4. Before using your washing machine, remember to flush the pipe by pouring water into it. This will ensure that the pipe has been cleared of the clog. Connect the pipe tubing to the drain once again and voila! You can now wash your dirty clothes!
