Two New Technology Ways Of Cleaning Drains To Get Rid Of The Clogging

Ever wonder how professionals actually manage to get all that disgusting goo from grease,fats,and oils and liquid waste from the drain pipes that tend to almost always block and clog? While some might consider the process through which these pipe hindrances are eliminated to be like magic,it is really more complicated than that. Professional drain cleaners not only cut scrape the goo from the drains,but they also utilize certain high-tech machinery and tools in fixing your pipes. Drain pumping that use large trucks in ridding of the accumulated lumps and objects is,perhaps,the oldest form of drain cleaning process around. With the innovations in new technology,the tools for drain cleaning have also developed into more advanced object that ooze of convenience and time-saving services. For the ordinary citizen,it is healthy to understand the ways through which you could have your drains cleaned. It is a good way to know which of the ways is more fitting to the type of pipes you have at home.-

In observing and inspecting drain pipes,professionals already utilize new technology so as to save time and promote convenience. The innovations that are used in the drain pipes inspection also help prevent unnecessary close contact to wastes that might be harmful to the human body. Before the actually drain cleaning is done,professionals may inspect drain pipes through the use of small cameras that could enter the pipes without much problems. These CCTV cameras give the professionals a glimpse of what might be causing the drain clogging in the first place. Through this initial inspection,the professionals would be able to discern which process of cleaning and pumping the drains to use. The flexible and long CCTV camera entered into the drain gives back footages of the insides of the piping,and the objects that might have already accumulated in it. After the initial surveying,professionals could use either of the two new technology ways of cleaning drains to rid of the clogging. The first way is hydro jetting (high pressure water jetting). It is considered to be the quickest,simplest,and the most effective way of drain cleaning done by professionals. A high pressure water nozzle is inserted into the pipes providing continuous high pressure water in order to dissolve flush and clean away all the objects blocking the pipe. The objects are blasted so as to liquefy any solid objects and allow the blockage to freely pass through the pipes. The second is the electro-mechanical cleaning (drain snake) which involves the use of a specific type of rod to mechanically scrape the blockage that are blocking the passage of water. This second type if more fit for smaller domestic pipes found inside the home like sink pipes. It utilized manual force in scraping away the objects blocking the pipe.

How To Fix A Leaking Toilet Without Breaking A Sweat

A leaking toilet isn’t that much of an issue for some people. But if you have kids at home who are so fond of playing inside the bathroom,you’ll have to fix that leak ASAP. You surely do not want any of them to slip and get injured because of the wet flooring,right?! Anyway,I know you wouldn’t want to see your utility bill skyrocket,too! Luckily,you just need some good plumbing tools,an adequate supply of DIY skills and a bucket full of patience to fix this problem. Here’s a short guide to help you out!

1. Remove the lid of the toilet tank and check the inside. Is the water level already above the overflow tube? If it is,the problem must be with the inlet valve located on the ballcock or the float. To inspect the inlet valve,simply flush the toilet. As the water in the bowl rises,lift the rod that supports the float. If the water stops,the inlet valve is still in good condition. This test will confirm that there’s an issue with the float. Configure it to a point that it’s level to the water inside the tank. If you’re unsuccessful,there may be a problem with the very float. It could have holes or it’s simply damaged. If that’s case,you’ll need to replace it.

3. Now in the event that you tested the inlet valve the water didn’t stop from flowing,there should be a problem with the ballcock. I wouldn’t advise you to repair it. Instead,I suggest having the whole assembly replaced.

4. When replacing the toilet assembly,you’ll have to drain the water from the tank first. Simply flush the toilet and keep on holding the flush lever to dispose most of the water. Use a sponge to remove the excess.

5. Disconnect the water supply line that’s attached to the ballcock,right at the base of the tank. You can use a pair of slip-joint pliers to detach the nut that’s securing the ballcock to the toilet tank. Lift the assembly. Position the new one into place. Make sure that you’ll thread the new nut that’s supposed to be placed underneath the toilet tank. Use your pliers again to tighten the connection. Re-connect the water supply line; install the new refill tube and turn the water supply on.

6. If any of the solutions above doesn’t get rid of the leakage,you must also check the flapper. Simply turn the supply line again and observe if the water inside the tank will lessen. If it does after approximately 15 minutes,you should loosen the flapper’s chain a bit. This will allow the part to drop to position and prevent the leak.

7. If you have already done Step no. 6 and the flapper didn’t budge,you have to replace it. Drain the toilet tank of water. Turn the water supply once again and flush the toilet while holding the lever down. Get a clean rag and wipe the flapper’s seat,making sure that sediments are removed. Inspect for any signs of cracks. Pull the old flapper and replace it. Turn the water supply on and test the toilet again.-
