What can I expect from drain cleaning services in Watsonville CA?
Drain cleaning services are among the top services we provide in Watsonville CA. The purpose of this service is to clean clogged drains and pipes and restore normal function. Another important benefit of plumbing drain cleaning services is the processes involved help to prevent future blockages or clogs.
The first thing you should know is that this drain service is not the same as drain clearing. Both are considered an emergency plumbing service, but they are on two different levels.
Drain clearing service is the first level. It is a quick fix for a clogged drain or toilet and only addresses the immediate issue. Plumbers usually show up to these jobs with a plumbing snake to cut through the clog and restore water flow. This drain service does not get rid of the clog, and the plumbing drain will more than likely clog again.
Drain cleaning service is the next level of resolving a clog. Instead of just cutting through the clog, this method gets rid of all its remnants. In many cases, hydrojetting is the approach to drain cleaning. This method uses a 400psi force of water to rip up the blockage and force it down the drain pipe. To date, it is the most effective plumbing drain cleaning method.
In other cases, cable cleaning is utilized. This method involves inserting a special blade to cut open and scrape away the blockage. The drawback to this method is that the blades can damage old or rusty pipes.
Main culprits for clogged drains in Watsonville CA
Clogged drains don’t just spring up magically. Watsonville CA plumbers often find that homeowners are the cause of clogs in their house. Here are some of the main culprits:
Admit it, sometimes, when you wash your hair, you end up washing the shed strands down the sink. Many people think this is alright, but these hairs build up over time and can cause hairballs that can block your drain.
Soap and toothpaste scum
All that excess or waste soap and toothpaste that goes down the drain doesn’t always wash down. It combines with grime, dead skin cells and even hair that clump together and block up the drain.
Food particles, grease, and oils
Your kitchen sink is most likely blocked from washing down food particles that aren’t meant to be disposed of this way. Another prominent culprit is fats, oils, and grease, or FOG, as some plumbers like to call it. These items should never be washed down the sink since they cool and form a blob that can back up even the sewer.
Tissue and hygiene products
While tissue was meant to be flushed, too much can cause plumbing problems. Similarly, hygiene products like flushable wipes, tampons, paper towels, cotton balls, and other paper products may cause additional plumbing issues.
Flushing foreign objects can put your toilet out of service. Children are more likely to flush foreign objects than adults. We’ve done emergency plumbing jobs in Watsonville CA where toys are the reason for the blockage.
Tap water in California is considered “very hard”, and homes in Watsonville get some of the hardest water in the state.
Hard water, over time, causes deposits on the inside of pipes and causes clogs. In Watsonville,
The roots of large trees growing around your house can creep up pipes and cause plumbing and drain issues.

10 Tips Plumbing Tips For Watsonville CA Residents
The reality is that a lot of plumbing problems are avoidable, and if we can save you the worry, why not? These are some tips Watsonville CA residents can use to keep their plumbing and drain problem-free:
- You can’t flush everything- The only thing you should flush is bodily waste and toilet paper. Even though it might seemingly get rid of anything, it isn’t a garbage bin, and you can cause it to back up and overflow.
- You’re better off calling a plumber than attempting to DIY the job– If you’ve tried to clear a blockage with a plunger or other safe DIY methods and it doesn’t work, stop trying and call a professional to tackle the job. You can end up puncturing your pipe with pointy objects or a plumbing snake.
- Pay attention to your water pressure, it tells you a lot– Just like your blood pressure can tell your doctor if something’s wrong, your water pressure can tell a plumber a great deal. A change in water pressure can mean blocked pipes, leaks, water wastage, open water meter valves, failing pressure regulators, and a host of other issues.
- Clean your gutters regularly– While your gutters aren’t necessarily a part of your main plumbing system, clogging can cause water to seep into your home and ruin your roof.
- Dripping faucets are a big deal– A lot of us tend to put a bucket under a leaky faucet and pretend there isn’t an issue. But, what about all the water that’s being wasted? What about the damage to your cabinets? Every drop adds up and it’s better to fix it before it causes irreversible damage.
- Don’t ignore mold and mildew– Mold and mildew are clear signs of leaks in your home and can pose health risks to you and your family. If you notice mold, mildew, or any musty smells, have a plumber diagnose the issue.
- Get a drain stopper/stainer for your shower- These cheap objects can save you hundreds of dollars in plumbing and drain repair. Hair is one of the main culprits of clogs and if left to accumulate can cause overflows, bad smells, inconvenience to inhabitants, and so on.
- Avoid chemical drain cleaners- Pouring chemicals down your drain can do more harm than good, and pose a serious threat to your plumbing infrastructure. And, when mishandled, can cause serious chemical burns.
- Familiarize yourself with the shut-off valve- Ask your plumber to help you find your main shut-off valve. This comes in handy when there are leaks and other plumbing issues that cause pipe damage or water wastage.
- Never pour fats and oils down your drain- Plumbers and city officials across the world are literally begging homeowners to stop pouring FOGs (fats, oils, and grease) down their sink because they form major blockages to the home/business plumbing system and the sewer system. Instead, allow them to cool, place them in glass or plastic containers, and toss them in your bin.
