One of the most common and perhaps most aggravating springtime plumbing issues is slower draining in sinks, showers, bathtubs, and floor drains. Slow draining can occur for numerous reasons.
In the spring specifically, sudden changes in fixture drainage may point to a root intrusion. If a large tree root has entered a drain line, water may have difficulty getting past the obstruction. In this case, you will likely notice slow water movement in most or all of your drains.
Drainage issues can also occur due to buildup within your pipes. Hosting guests, cooking holiday meals, and other winter activities can contribute to clogs that don’t seem to be a problem until spring. In this scenario, the slower draining may only appear in one fixture or one room, like a specific bathroom.
Because many obstructions occur out of sight and out of reach, it’s important to have a Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical NJ plumber assess and remove the clog by using a power rodding machine with drain cable. Home remedies can damage your pipes and may fail to completely eliminate the obstruction.
