Drain stoppages can occur suddenly or slowly grow worse overtime, but regardless of how they manifest, they mean a massive headache for home owners in the Tampa Bay area. At Midway Services, we understand the frustration and inconvenience that a plugged drain can cause. And when they do occur, they are often an immediate problem that cannot be postponed. That’s why we offer our emergency plumbing repair services 24/7, so that no matter what time of day, when you need drain cleaning or sewer line repairs, we’ll be there to help you out.
Causes of Drain Stoppages
Any drain that evacuates water and sewage from your home can become clogged. This includes the bathroom, kitchen, and utility sinks, garbage disposals, showers and bathtubs, washer machine’s and especially toilets. In modern society we depend heavily on effective running water and sewage drainage in our homes. When they stop working it can range from inconvenient to life disrupting. Fixing a clogged bathroom sink might be postponed, but a clogged toilet in a single bathroom home is a huge problem.
But what causes stoppages in Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa residences? Many blockages occur from misuse or build up, but some can even occur due to unavoidable external circumstances.
Let’s look at a few common causes of drain stoppages:
- Common drain clogs caused by hair, toilet tissue, and waste
- Items that don’t belong down the drain
- Mineral or scum buildup
- Damaged main sewage line due to:
- Encroaching tree roots
While most stoppages are minor and easily remedied, the last on our list is often the opposite. That’s why we offer a free camera inspection with every main line stoppage cleared. We can evaluate and show you live video feed of the plumbing that runs between your home and the city’s sewer line. If we do find your main sewer line is damaged, we offer affordable solutions to fix the problem and avoid the inconvenience of having future stoppages in your home.
