Arizona Pipe and Drain Cleaning
Are hair, grease, fruit rinds or coffee grounds clogging your kitchen sink? Does the water in your shower seem like it will never drain? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, it’s time you called Whitton Plumbing, Arizona’s premier plumbing specialists.
The plumbing system of the average household depends on a complex network of pipes and branch lines. The delivery of water to a residence is done through pipes or lines that transport it to plumbing fixtures, plumbing appliances and outside spigots. Water enters the residence from a municipal or private source through a main pipe. This main pipe divides the water into branch lines, which then carry the water to plumbing fixtures, appliances and points outside the residence.
WHAT CLOGS YOUR DRAINS?
Sinks, bathtubs, showers and toilets are all examples of plumbing fixtures. Clogged drains and pipes in these fixtures need to be promptly repaired. Each type of drain and pipe in your household is susceptible to particular types of blockages. Food waste, grease, coffee grounds and other matter can slowly build up in kitchen drains and pipes until a complete blockage results, causing inconveniences like overflows of water or lack of drainage. Bathtubs and showers are prone to clogs caused by hair, soap and other debris. Even a small sliver of soap can cause a clogged drain in a bathtub or shower. Human hair is especially common in clogged drains. It will not deteriorate and it behaves in a spring-like manner that causes it to coil and lodge in pipes and drains.
Your kitchen sink and shower should drain without delay, and your bathtub should empty soon after unstopping the drain.

MAINTAINING DRAINS AND PIPES
Once your drains are clear, regularly maintain them to prevent future blockages. Flush drains once a week to keep them clear of soap, grease and other debris. You can also treat your drains once every six months with a non-caustic drain cleaner, which will keep your household plumbing clear without damaging your pipes.
Whitton Plumbing can use special tools designed to cut through any debris clogging your toilet and ensure your pipes are clear of any blockages that might cause future problems.
Toilets are particularly prone to blockages due to debris or to types of paper not intended for flushing. Baby wipes, paper towels and facial tissue can all cause your toilet to become clogged. A clogged toilet can flood and damage your bathroom, saddling you with costly repairs. It is therefore important that you seek professional help when dealing with a clogged toilet. Whitton Plumbing can use special tools designed to cut through any debris clogging your toilet and ensure your pipes are clear of any blockages that might cause future problems.

Pipes leading outside your house can also become blocked by tree roots and sand.
