All Star Plumbing offers fast friendly cleaning of any plugged or slow drains inside your Saratoga or Schenectady County area home. No matter where you live in the area neighboring Ballston Lake, chances are that you have most likely experienced the slow running or plugged up drain phenomenon more than once. Bathroom vanity sinks exhibit a tendency to get plugged with hair, soap, and toothpaste. Tub or shower drains are known for getting clogged with hair which traps shampoo and soap residue. Kitchen sink drain flow is often hindered by the accumulation of certain foods particles and grease. Toilets these days have superior flushing technology, however, it is still possible for a toilet to clog especially if you have little ones around that are overly generous with the use of toilet paper or prone to “misplacing” toys and other small objects.
Are pipes your plumbing problem?
In addition to what goes down a drain, the type of drain pipe you have in your home can be the culprit. Galvanized drain piping in older homes like those in Scotia & Glenville is notorious for draining slowly and plugging completely. This is due in part to the age of the galvanized steel drain piping and the fact that the interior drain opening has been getting smaller and smaller over the past decades. Also, the fittings on galvanized steel piping have very sharp turns causing a lot of friction for any waste trying to flow through. Newer construction in places like Clifton Park and Malta uses PVC piping which can alleviate the gradual narrowing of the pipe over time.
