Need drain cleaning or repair? No problem, we’ve got you covered!
Whether it’s a plugged toilet, a kitchen sink that’s running slowly, or a main sewer backup, Apollo Plumbing is here to help.
Quick-running drains are an essential part of a healthy, normal plumbing system. However, we are all bound to run into a blocked drain at one point or another. Blocked, or slow-moving drains are common issues, and should be handled with care. The best, and safest way to clean a drain, is to call a professional. While there are other options available, such as chemicals that claim to clear drains, they may cause more harm that good. Chemical drain cleaning products are usually acidic, and may rust metal piping, as well as melt plastic piping. These chemicals are also not particularly good for the environment. It’s always best to call a professional when faced with a blocked drain, and Apollo Plumbing is always here to help.
Main Sewer LinesHave you ever wondered why there’s a “U” or “P”-shaped pipe under the sink? Well, that’s called a “P-Trap”, and it’s used to hold water (creating a barrier) so that sewer gases don’t come back into your home. Sewer gases don’t smell very pleasant, but more importantly, sewer gases are very unhealthy. When a sewer backup happens, we are immediately exposed to the smells and adverse effects of the sewer gases from which we are trying to avoid.
24 hours/day, 7 days/week, Apollo Plumbing will always be here for you. Once your call is answered, we will guide you through what to do until we arrive.
If you are experiencing a sewer backup, it is highly recommended that the issue be resolved as soon as possible. Some indicators may give you an idea of whether you have a sewer backup in your home are:
- Fluid backup in your basement floor drain when toilets are flushed.
- If the washing machine is drain is causing gurgling in toilets.
- If basement showers are backing up.
