Clogged Toilet / My Toilet

Clogged Drains & Covid-19

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

During the summer months, clogged drains seem to rise. The kids are home from school, and summer is in full swing. Generally, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM, the kids used the restrooms at school, now your home plumbing is filling the gap. Usually, during summer months, we’re inundated with drain cleaning calls. Now we have a very similar problem with Covid-19 and clogged drains. Only this time, everyone is at home, and the average person will flush the toilet at least five times a day. With a family of four that works out to twenty flushes a day. We’re warning people not to flush anything down the toilet other than toilet paper, and that includes paper towels and baby wipes.

A Plunger Has Its Limits

Older homes are more susceptible to clogs than new homes, but if you’re flushing paper towels down the toilet, it won’t matter how old your home is, it will eventually experience a clogged drain. What happens in older drain pipes is they tend to fall victim to our hard water, the minerals can build up over many years of use. Eventually, it becomes a catch-all for things flushed down the toilet. A plunger can handle most clogs, but unfortunately, they do have their limits. If the clog is in the main sewer line, then chances are, all your drains will start to back up.

Our Plumbing Experts Have The Tools And Experience

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer (DIY) and you’re up for the challenge, you can rent a plumber’s snake from the rental yard. Keep in mind, if most of your drains are backing up simultaneously, then the clog is in your main sewer line. The best place to start is your cleanouts. If you can’t locate your cleanouts, it’s best to have your plumbing professional clear the drain. Steve Jobs once said, “Technology is nothing, what’s important is that you have faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.” In other words, your plumbing experts have the tools and experience to tackle any clogged drain.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
