We all know how frustrating it is to have a slow draining bathtub or sink, and how terrifying it is when your toilets are backing up with sewage water. Kitchen sinks can back up into laundry sinks, toilets into bathtubs, or everything all at once.
At Absolute Plumbing Solutions, we are masters of diagnosing and clearing up clogged drains in Tsawwassen and Delta. We are a locally owned family run company with family values and over 15 years of experience. We have seen it all and understand the complexities of your home’s internal drainage system. Our professional drain cleaning equipment and camera scopes extend up to 200ft to diagnose and successfully remove all unwanted build up in your drains, including tree roots!
Drainage calls are always unpredictable, but you can rest assured that we are always prepared to handle what lurks in your drains. We are here to take your stress away, provide solutions, and clear away blockages.
To start, we gather as much information as possible to ensure we understand the full picture. Generally, the location of the slow-moving drain indicates the location of the clog but it’s also possible for multiple fixtures to be affected and cause back-ups in different rooms.
We happily educate you on how the system works, provide repair options, and then we get started. You can expect drain cleaning process to be as quick as 30 minutes to as long as 4 – 5 hours, depending on the severity of the clog and if fixtures needed to be removed. Drain cleaning can be very messy for us, but it’s never messy for you. You will be happy to know that we actually take pride in cleaning up any area that we work in, leaving a delightfully clean and fresh smelling space for you to enjoy.
We are overwhelmed with positive feedback about how thoroughly we review prevention and maintenance. It’s important for us to empower you with knowledge and tips that will keep your drains working as they should. You will notice that we always suggest clean-out installations if none are present, camera inspections to get a clear visual of the clog, and professional grade environmentally responsible drain products to keep your drains clear without causing damage.
If your shower is draining slowly or your hearing gurgles when you use your toilet, act quickly. It’s always better to be pro-active than allow a potential disaster to creep on you when you least expect it. We have the right tools, experience, knowledge, and attitude to take care of your drainage issues safely and effectively.
You will know your drain is clogged because the water in your toilet, tub, or sink will drain very slowly. When it is completely blocked, water will not drain at all. You may hear gurgling sounds and even see water coming up a drain in a different room if it’s more serious.
The most common causes are excess toilet paper and other paper products, organic matter (ex: food scraps), products like shampoo/tooth paste, and tree roots. It depends on the area; bathrooms often clog up with hair whereas kitchens are often clogged up with oil and food.
If your snake doesn’t work, this can indicate that the blockage is much further down the line and professional equipment will be required to reach and remove the clog. The toilet will need to be removed to allow for access.
No. Although many people have seen success with a small clog, we never recommend the use of Drano because as it sits in your drains it’s continually eating away at the blockage and everything else around it. We’ve seen toilet bowls crack, PVC pipes softened and cracked, and the glue holding pipes together dissolved. It’s not the right quick or permanent fix.
There could be a P-Trap that is dried out. If that has been ruled out and you still smell sewer gas, it’s very likely there is a blockage in your drain of organic matter that has built up over time. The decay and bacteria emit gasses that will creep up through the pipes and out of your fixtures.
Absolute Plumbing Solutions will effectively clear clogs from drains that build up with grease, fats, food scraps, bath products, toilet paper, hair, and all other debris. If your drain is clogged or running slowly, act quickly to avoid bigger and messier backups. We are equipped with the right tools and experience to take care of your home and make sure that your drainage issues are cleared. Our family run company knows how important it is to have all the toilets working for your family gathering or the kitchen sink properly draining over the holidays. If you are experiencing any issues or want to be pro-active about prevention, give us a call and we will take good care of you.
