Why You Should Hire a Drain Cleaning Company for Clogged Drains

If you’re like most homeowners, you pour a liquid drain cleaner down the drain whenever you have a clog or slow drain and hope for the best.

But, while these products seem to work in the short term, you often find that the clog returns, and you’re back to relying on chemicals again.
We understand that using these products and home drain cleaning remedies save you money over hiring a plumbing company to clean your drains. Still, there are several reasons to hire a professional to clean your drains you may not have thought of.

Profesional Plumbers Remove Clogs

Many drain cleaners and home remedies don’t remove the obstruction causing your clog, but break it up where it travels deeper into your plumbing system. Once there, it can harden causing another clog. Professional drain cleaners use tools like hydro-getting to remove the debris so clogs don’t return.

Drain Cleaners Are Hazardous

Store-bought drain cleaners use harsh chemicals that can erode your plumbing system if you rely too heavily on them. Plus, these chemicals are dangerous and can cause chemical burns if you get them on your skin. Plumbing contractors use drain cleaning methods that are effective and safe for your plumbing and the environment.

Professionals Can Detect More Signifcant Problems

A clogged sink or drain could be a symptom of a larger plumbing problem, but without the experience and training, you won’t know about it until it’s too late. Sometimes, a blocked sewer line is the cause of persistent clogs, which takes the skill of a professional to diagnose.

For safe, effective blocked drain repair, call Point Loma Electric and Plumbing for our guaranteed drain cleaning services.

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Hot Water Heater Maintenance

For many homeowners, their water heater is out of sight and out of mind, which means they don’t see the warning signs of impending water heater failure until it’s too late.

And like some other household appliances, it’s easy to forget about water heater maintenance, but here are a few reasons you should put it near the top of your list of chores.

Preserve System Capacity

Over time, sediment and mineral deposits build up in your water heater’s tank, taking up space, reducing the water capacity, and causing many other problems we’ll get to. Keeping the tank clean, ensures you get the most hot water possible.

Increases System Efficiency

The sediment and minerals that build up in the tank make it more difficult for your water heater to do its job. The harder the water heater works, the more energy it consumes, which means higher energy bills for you.

Extends the Lifespan

Installing a new water heater isn’t cheap, so it makes sense to keep your current system running for as long as possible. By removing the mineral and sediment buildup, and checking critical components like the anode rod and pressure relief valve, you can extend your water heater’s lifespan beyond what’s considered the norm.

The Most Common Plumbing Problems

At Point Loma Electric and Plumbing, we’ve seen it all during our 32 plus years of serving homeowners in Del Mar and the greater San Diego area. However, there are certain plumbing problems that come up more than others.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure can be a major inconvenience, especially when performing everyday tasks such as cooking, washing dishes, or showering. Low water pressure is often caused by mineral buildup in the pipes or a blockage in the main water line.

Water Leaks

While leaking faucets might seem like a minor annoyance, the truth is they waste hundreds of gallons of water, which means you’re paying more for water you’re not using. Also, depending on where the leak is, your home could be susceptible to mold and mildew growth.

Constantly Running Toilets

Like leaky faucets, a running toilet can waste hundreds of gallons of water. Most causes of running toilets are easy to repair, whether it’s a flapper that won’t close or the flushing mechanism is malfunctioning. However, if your toilet is over 20 years old, replacement might be the best option.

Slow Drains

Nobody likes standing in a puddle of water while showering, unfortunately, this is a common plumbing issue in the bathroom as hair and soap build up in the drain over time. If your kitchen drains are slow, it’s usually caused by food scraps and cooking grease going down the drain.
