How to unclog your shower drain
This week I got a call to unclog a shower drain. I started by removing the drain cover. The screws were a bit rusty so I had to make sure I was carful not to strip the head of the screw and create more work for myself. After I removed the drain cover and as I was pulling it up, a bunch of hair that was stuck to it came up with the cover. This almost could have been the problem. I still cleaned it out with a small hand held snake, you can use a wire hanger as the two inch opening is not very deep at the elbow. I retrieved a good size hair ball that was causing the slow draining of the shower. Once I removed the hair ball, I ran hot water for about a minute to make sure that the drain was cleared of any other debris. I closed it and on my way I went. So, try taking the drain cover off first before calling a plumber and see what you bring up with the cover, then use a wire hanger to clear out the immediate drain area and see if that helps. Good luck. You can always call us for a free estimate or visit our website www.camarillo-plumbers.com
How to unclog a toilet yourself
If your plunger won't unclog your toilet, you may have to go buy an auger. They sell for under $40.00 and home depot or your local hardware stores carries them. As you can see in the image above all you have to do is insert the tip of the auger to the toilet bowl and push the lever in, whatever is causing the clog will be pushed into the larger drain sewer line. Read the instruction prior to inserting the auger in the toilet and look at the diagram to avoid scratching the toilet bowl. Flush several times after it clears up so that the water drains and cleans the debris out into the sewer line. If you make a mess or have wet carpets or tile, call a carpet cleaning company so that your carpet doesn't get ruined and or smelly.
Water HEATER installation
We replaced a water heater and installed this new one. The old water heater was 150 gallon, we reduced it to a 50 gallon. The homeowner decided that a smaller water heater would do the job as his kids moved out and it's just he and his wife. This will save him money on his gas bill. Let us know if we can help your monthly gas bill. Visit www.camarillo-plumbers.com we are the Camarillo Plumbing company everyone uses.
