Have you noticed that all of the plumbing fixtures in your warehouse are draining water out slower than usual? There is a possibility that the root of the plumbing problem lies with something being wrong with the main sewer line to your warehouse. Find out in this article what you should know about the connection between slow draining plumbing fixtures and the main sewer line.
What Causes Plumbing Fixtures to Stop Draining Water Out Fast?
When a single plumbing fixture is not draining water properly, there is likely a problem in the pipes that are directly connected to it. However, water draining slowly in all of the industrial plumbing fixtures in your warehouse means that the main sewer line is possibly clogged up. The reason water drains slowly in such a situation is due to it having a hard time making it through the blockage in the sewer line. You can try getting rid of the clog by purchasing a plumbing snake, but it may not have enough force to break through the clog. Hiring an industrial plumber is the best thing to do for satisfactory results.
How Can an Industrial Plumber Fix Slow Draining Plumbing Fixtures?
The first thing that the plumber will do is determine how the sewer line became clogged. The great thing about the task is that he or she won't have to dig up your landscape to access the pipe. Modern technology has made it possible for a plumber to send a special camera into the sewer line to capture images or video of what it looks like inside. As long as there are no cracks in the sewer line (which requires excavation for a repair), the plumber will be able to use commercial equipment that can snake out the debris causing the clog with powerful force. He or she can also using a powerful pump to send the debris through the sewer line so water can start draining out of plumbing fixtures as they should.
What Is the Rate Charged By Plumbers for Drain Problems?
The exact price that you are charged for a plumber to fix the slow draining plumbing fixtures in your house will depend on what found after an inspection is done. You should expect to pay a minimum hourly rate of at least $45. However, the hourly rate is as much as $150 for a complex job.
