Let a Professional Plumber Unclog Your Drain
Unclogging a drain is often a mess, in general. Clogged bathtub drains can be tricky, in particular. While tubs differ, their drain caps are created and installed specifically to stop water. Sometimes, they are quite difficult to remove when you need to get into the drain. This makes the DIY approach more difficult; you may not be able to reach the entire drain clog alone.
This is one of those moments when home plumbing calls for a professional’s help. The common tools used to unclog and clean the drain simply will not get the job done, sometimes. When the bathtub drain blockage is close to the surface, you may be able to reach it, if you manage to remove the drain cover. However, the deeper the clog, the harder it is to reach, and the harder it is to make sure you eliminate the entire source of the drain blockage. When you cannot effectively clean the entire pipe, that means more chances for future bathtub drain clogs.
A professional plumber is trained and licensed to handle your pipes with tools you probably do not have. Experts have methods for getting to those drain clogs and beyond, making sure that not only is the blockage handled, but your bathtub drain is clear and you won’t have another blockage problem for some time. They get to the root of the problem, saving you time and money later.
While it may seem as though hiring a plumber for a simple tub drain clog is a waste of money because you could do it yourself, think of the effort it will save. Rather than working and sweating over the mess, and then not being able to solve the entire problem, potentially, you can have a professional do the job more thoroughly. A plumber will also help you ensure that your pipes stay cleaner, longer, thus saving you money in the long term.
