Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What causes low water pressure?

The most common cause of low water pressure is a clogged pipe, however sometimes it’s not so simple. Other issues like leaking pipes, pressure regulator issues, or a faulty valve can cause the same symptoms. Diagnosing this problem is challenging and we recommend contacting a plumbing professional.

My drains run very slowly. How can I get them unclogged?

If your drain runs slowly your first thought may be clogs – however this may be a symptom of other serious problems such as an incorrectly vented plumbing system. Getting this fixed quickly is important as when pipes are draining slowly they are also experiencing more pressure than they were designed for. If left uncorrected this can lead to leaks. Check out our blog to learn more about how to clear your drains and to determine if you need to contact a professional.

The pipes in my building are pretty old. Is it safe to snake my own drain?

Using a powered plumbing snake on old pipes is risky; you risk bursting your pipes, potentially causing flooding inside your walls! For minor clogs that are close to the drain you can try using a small, hand-cranked plumbing snake. If this doesn’t work, or if the clog is more serious, then you’ll want to contact a professional.

What drain cleaners are safe to pour down the drain?

Chemical drain cleaners are a convenient tool to tackle drain problems – but they come with major drawbacks. If they fail to quickly clear the clog, then the corrosive drain cleaner may begin to damage the pipes. The result can be disastrous – creating major leaks inside your walls. If you aren’t sure about how your plumbing will hold up to drain cleaning solvents, contact a professional!

I think my sewer line is clogged. How do I know if that’s the problem?

The signs of a clogged sewer line drain are: multiple drain backups, floor drains filling up, or sewage in your sewer clean-out. A clogged sewer line can cause seriously disgusting issues in your home or result in the temporary closure of your business! If you see any of these symptoms, call us ASAP before things get out of hand.

I handle most of my own repairs. Can I clear a blocked residential sewer main by myself

Clearing a blocked residential sewer main is not a DIY job as it requires the use of heavy, professional-grade tools like jetters and power augers. In inexperienced hands, these tools pose significant risk of accidentally causing further damage. If the line needs to be replaced, part of your property may need to be excavated with heavy equipment. This sort of repair is best left to plumbing professionals.

What can cause a blocked sewer main?

Typically, sewer line blockages are caused by broken pipes, tree roots, or flushing inappropriate items down the toilet. To learn more about troubleshooting for sewer line clogs, see our Plumbing Advice blog.

Why does my sink smell?

Sewer gases can come up from the drain of a toilet, sink, and even bathtubs. If your pipes are giving off a strong odor, call Kay Plumbing and our plumbers will investigate the cause of the sewage smell.
