When Do You Need a Plumber?
You may have noticed that the water in your sink has been draining more slowly. You may have a clog. Clogs happen when there is a build-up of grease, food, and other materials on the inside of pipes. This restricts the flow of escaping water; you need to act quickly as eventually the water will be completely blocked. We at bluefrog recommend a regular inspection of your plumbing system. Remember that spotting a small problem early will prevent it from becoming a bigger and more expensive problem to fix.
Blocked and Overflowing Toilets
What causes a blocked toilet? It may be that you have flushed something down the toilet that you should not. Items like wet wipes or sanitary towels that cannot dissolve in water will build up over time and cause a blockage. We recommend that you do not use harsh chemicals to remove any blockage. Overuse of these chemicals can weaken the joints and seals around the pipes and cause leaks. Nor will they remove any children’s toys that may have been flushed down the toilet. We also recommend that you do not keep re-flushing a blocked toilet as it will certainly overflow. You do not want to clean the harmful bacteria and germs from the overflow.
