A common mistake many people make when it comes to cleaning their drains is attempting to take the easy road. While there are indeed times when pouring commercial-grade chemicals down the spout can be helpful, namely for the sake of maintenance, this is not something you want to do on a regular basis. The caustic agents in these products can erode the sensitive materials in and around the drains, thus leading to a host of future repairs.

My drains are clogged, what should I do?
When addressing any plumbing problem, the first thing you want to do is take a deep breath and relax. Many people are quick to jump to conclusions concerning how much the repair bill is going to cost them, and many others rush around frenzied without taking time to assess the situation. Neither of these responses is productive; instead, what you should do is complete a couple quick tests to evaluate the extent of the issue. Without further ado, here they are.
- Determine how many drains are actually backed up – the great thing about your residential or commercial Rocklin plumbing system, at least from a problem analysis perspective, is that its layout makes it quite easy to assess the severity of clogs and stoppages. For instance, if you flush the toilet and water rises out of the nearest sink or shower drain, you have just isolated the source of the issue.
- Noises are not good – the only time you want to hear the sound of gurgling or bubbling water is when using your plumbing appliances; noises that occur during non-operation times can potentially indicate a clogged drain.
