Drains and Drainage Systems

Having drain problems or clogged drains issues is the "hell" no one likes to go through. We at Portland Plumbing Plus care so we have created this article to help you troubleshoot some drain problems in your home and solving your drain problems starts with knowing your drain and drainage system

Drains - What Are They?

Drains can be put to various uses. First, drains are plumbing pipes through which waste water or sewage run into the sewer. Example: kitchen or toilet drain. Second, they are channels for the flow of water that is recirculated, you see these second type of drains in facilities such as a swimming pool. Drains are located every where in and outside your building, from your kitchens to bathrooms to toilets and the whole yard in general. There are sink drains, shower drains, toilet drains, floor drains, french drains, trench drains, storm drain, rain drain, mainlines, yard drainage and other drains and drainage systems.

The importance of drains cannot be over-emphasized. Little wonder, the agony of a clogged drain is heavy on every home owner and or tenant. So take some time to read all plumbing information and tips in this article for a better understanding of how your drain works. This article will help you solve some of your drain problems yourself.

Drains and Your Home - What You Must Know

Drain cleaners are a must-have for every home. As true as the above statement is, it is important to also know that drain cleaning products used in many homes to unclog blocked toilets, blocked kitchen sinks, blocked bathroom drain, all other clogged sinks and clogged drain lines are chemical based and can have adverse effects on our household environmental safety as well as cause serious health problems or even death, if care is not taken.

Best Practice - Use natural and home-made solutions for minor drain cleaning and unclogging clogged drains. Avoid using a drain cleaner to unclog a heavily blocked toilet, sink and other drain lines. Contact a drain professional who will use specialized drain cleaning machines to unblocked such drains.

Drain Cleaning and Drain Odors - How to Clean your Drain and Get Rid Of Smell

You and I know the embarrassment of a smelly drain and no one wants to live with this. We are going to teach you a few tips you can use to keep your drain odors away. Good thing is, every thing you need to get rid of your drain odor is right there in your home. We will show you how to use them.


Ingredients for this experiment:
1 Cup Of White Distilled Vinegar
1/2 Cup Of Baking Soda
Boiling Hot Water
1/2 Cup Of Salt

I bet you use most of these ingredients in your kitchen to make meals. Now you will use them not as recipe but in other ways to get rid of smell in your drains. Pour the above mentioned quantities of salt, baking soda and white vinegar down your drain. Attention - This experiment has a bubbling effect so cover the drain cap as soon as the vinegar is poured in. Let the bubbles settle down before you pour boiling hot water in; about a kettle or two.
Congratulations, the embarrassing drain odor in your home is taken care of and your drain should run smoothly as a result of your experiment.

Note that the splash and spill from the bubbles of salt and soda can leave an unpleasant sight on your kitchen sink and other plumbing fixtures. Cleaning these with a hot water is recommended to bring back the original look.

If however your drain odor persists after this experiment, contact a drain cleaning company or drain plumber.

Drains and Yard Drainage - Getting Rid Of Basement Or Crawlspace Flooding And Moisture

Did you know that the position of your property in relation to that of the next house close to yours could result in constant moisture in your home? If your house is situated on a steep slope relative to other houses in your area, water from another house on a higher elevation than yours can cause constant moisture in your yard.

Solution - You need a profound and proper yard drainage system. Get trench or french drains installed underground in your yard to properly channel the flow of water off your property. Discuss this with a professional drain contractor or landscaping professional. Your contractor or you should check with your local utilities and study your city codes and laws before you embark on any excavation project. Never dig where you shouldn't to avoid any trouble from both neighbors or your city laws.

Customer Testimonials - Reviews For Portland Plumbing Plus

I have Caught the Portland Plumbing Plus Fever Too!!!

Doreen Rosales 
Portland, OR
According to my mom, another neighbor told her neighbor about Portland Plumbing Plus. My mom has always had a plumbing problem which we
believed was typical of an old house until Bob and his men worked on the house.
So I had this irritating toilet problem which two different plumbers couldn't fix. When I flush my toilet, water over-flows in the house. The plumbers I called before Portland Plumbing Plus did a temporary fix cuz it took a few days for the problem to resurface. When my mom came visiting, she called Bob. After assessing the problem, he told me straight up that the problem was from my sump pump which he suspected was installed the wrong way.

Question: Rattling Central Heating Pipes

Question

I have central heating pipes that rattle very badly if i turn off the rads down stairs it stops.

It could be air in the system which needs to be let out by bleeding the radiators; could be radiator valve rattling;  could also be your pump valve; could be loose duct work or pipes expansion noise. But before I begin to address this, it's important that I know the type of system you have and at what point the problem started. Is your central heating gas or electric? Is it an old system? Was there a recent repair done on the unit before it started rattling? We always urge users to give such details in their questions to enable us give accurate answers since we are not present to look at the system.
