Hire a Plumbing Contractor in Chicago to Clear a Drain

It’s frustrating to take a shower and end up standing in three or four inches of water, because the shower drain isn’t working well. Eventually the water does seep down, but it can take awhile. Instead of calling a plumbing contractor in Chicago, homeowners often attempt to clear the drain by pouring a chemical drain cleaner down it. While the water might run more freely, the homeowner has no way of knowing if he really solved the problem. Part of the clog may still exist and the drain cleaner could be sitting on top of it. If the cleaner sits there long enough, it could eat through the pipe.

Calling a plumbing contractor in Chicago is a much better solution. Instead of guessing about the leak, the plumber will use a small camera on the end of steel cable to find and diagnose the drain clog. He can then decide which tool will be more effective at clearing out the clog. If the clog is within 75 feet of the plumber’s location, he can use a motorized claw on the end of a steel cable.

If the clog is beyond the reach of the motorized claw, the plumber can utilized hydro-jet technology. A pressurized nozzle forces water out of a hose at 5,000 psi. The water is so powerful that it will whisk away almost any clog. The plumber will use the camera one last time to make sure that clog is gone and that there isn’t another clog below it.

Having a stopped up toilet or no hot water is very inconvenient. It can be hard to change a baby’s diaper or to wash hands after caring for a sick child without warm water.
