What Are the Common Causes of Clogs and Backups?
The best way to protect your drains is to prevent a clog from forming in the first place, and the best way to do that is to know what not to let go down them.
A good general rule is to only ever let water, toilet paper, and human waste go down the drain, but some the most common harmful things that can cause a drain include:
- Food scraps: Even if you have a garbage disposal, food should always be disposed of in the trash. It can get caught in your pipes far too easily and quickly become a larger issue.
- Foreign objects: Small toys, cotton products, "flushable" wipes, and more should never find their way into your drains. It's always safest to dispose of products you intend to dispose of in the trash.
- Grease and oil: Similar to food scraps, these substances should never make their way down the drain. They can get caught and solidify in your drains, creating a massive blockage relatively quickly.
- Hair: It's important to install a hair trap in your shower drain to prevent loose hair from finding its way down the drain.
- Root intrusion: Even the smallest crack in your underground pipes is enough space for a root to start making its way inside. Over time, it will grow until it completely blocks off all water flow.
The Benefits of Having Your Drains Professionally Cleaned
We are often asked if it is genuinely necessary to hire a professional plumber to clean your drains. The short answer is yes, it is. While anybody can pour store-bought gutter cleaner down a sink, these products rarely address the problem.
They may get your drains flowing a bit better now, but they will be stopped up again after too long. Additionally, these products tend to do more harm than good. Because they contain harsh chemicals, they can damage your drains and sewer, cause rust and corrosion, and diminish your system's lifespan.
How Do Professionals Clean Drains?
For simple clogged work, you can anticipate a professional plumber to clean your drains utilizing a motorized auger (sometimes called a snake), which can cover nearly any obstacle within the pipe. The cleaning usually begins with an auger to remove essential problems.
The benefits of professional drain cleaning include:
- Prevents backups and clogs
- Improves drainage and water pressure
- Protects your pipes from root intrusion, rust, and corrosion
- Extends the lifespan of your plumbing system
- Saves you money on repairs and premature replacements
Our Morgan Hill plumbing team will inspect your system and help you determine the cleaning schedule that is right for you.
Signs You Need Drain Cleaning
The most common signs your drains need to be cleared include:
- Gurgling sounds coming from your drains or toilet
- Slow-draining sinks or tubs
- Standing water in your sinks or tubs
- Frequent clogs
- Fruit flies buzzing around your sinks
- Bad smells coming from your drains
- Using one drain causes other drains in your home to back up
- Puddles of water around your washing machine, shower, tub, or sink
Over time, buildup accumulates inside your pipes, narrowing the passage through which water can flow. This can cause your entire system to run less efficiently, and you may notice your drains aren’t working as well as they once did.
It is recommended that you schedule professional drain cleaning every 12-18 months. At the very least, you should try to maintain and clean your drains at least once every year. Even if you don't see any obvious signs, your drains are causing clogged concerns.
Buildup puts a lot of stress on your drain and sewer lines. If left untreated, you may even experience major sewer line repair problems like cracked or burst pipes and collapsed sewer lines. Some issues are easier to spot than others, so it's important to keep a close eye on your drains to catch the problem before it becomes worse.

- And root intrusion
Hydro jetting is incredibly popular because it is not only one of the most effective drain cleaning methods but also environmentally friendly and safe for your family.
Hydro Jetting vs. Snaking
Several of our customers have questions about which of these options is best for their particular needs, so let’s dive in and take a look at the main differences between the two.
Hydro jetting is a plumbing process that uses high-pressure water to clear out clogged drains and pipes. The water is forced through the pipes at a high-pressure, that is strong enough to dislodge and remove any debris that may be causing a blockage. This process is highly effective and can clear out even the most stubborn clogs.
On the other hand, snaking is a process that uses a long, flexible rod to manually break up and remove blockages and clogs. This rod is inserted directly into the pipe and is used to break up the clog. While snaking is effective in many cases, it is not as powerful as hydro jetting and cannot always remove all of the debris.
So Which One Is Better?
In the most severe cases, hydro jetting is the preferred option. It is more powerful, more effective, and can get rid of blockages that snaking cannot. Plus, hydro jetting is much faster than snaking, so it can save you time and money in the long run.
Is Hydro Jetting Worth It?
Hydro jetting is a great, cost-effective option for maintaining your plumbing system. This process can help to keep your pipes and drains free of debris and can help to prevent future clogs. Hydro jetting has long-lasting results so it’s a great way to keep your plumbing system running smoothly for up to five years.
