Why It's Best to Call a Professional for Drain Problems

September 21, 2015


Slow drains, clogged drains, gurgling drains – they all have the same thing in common: they need help. Television commercials and DIY videos will lead you to believe that quick solutions are at the ready for just about any drain problem, and better yet, that they work. Unfortunately, this isn’t true most of the time. We handle a lot of DIY-gone-wrong types of calls, and one way to avoid this often costly scenario is to give your Bronco Plumbing Heating and Air plumbing expert a call as soon as you discover any kind of issue with any of your home’s drains. 

Chemicals Are Bad

No matter how badly your drain may be blocked, it’s important to refrain from using any kind of over-the-counter chemical drain cleaner. It can be very tempting, as television commercials make it appear that your drain problems will be over in an instant. The truth is that these chemicals, while highly caustic, don’t do too much to clogs, especially ones far down in your plumbing system. However, they can do quite a number on your piping, particularly PVC. The caustic nature of these chemicals is such that they can actually burn the pipe material, and when using the gel form of these chemicals, the residue will cling for weeks. You can end up with far more complex problems than the ones you started with.

Pros Have What You Need

Professionals not only have the training and expertise to clear your drains quickly and safely, they also have the right tools and know how to use them. Our experts will get to the heart of the issue so that you won’t have to experience repeated clogging or other issues down the road.
