Unclogging clogged drains is a matter of removing blockages. The simple and practical way of doing this is to remove them physically. The rotating cutters for clogged pipes are the most popular choices for these types of jobs. These equipments go into the drain and literally cut up whatever is blocking the drain. Unfortunately, the process, simple as it may seem, is anything but. There are many different types of blockages that will require different tools and different kinds and orientation of pipes that will determine the viability of this method.
How do you know? Unfortunately, there is no easy or straight cut way to determine these things. However, different companies offer services that will take care of this and everything else for you. They offer services delivered by expertly trained men equipped with the right technology and equipment to do the job conveniently and, more importantly, safely.
For those who are into the do-it-yourself bit, this is one job that is best left to the professionals. Accidents arising from or related to the use of drain cleaning equipment have been known to result in grave permanent disabilities and, sometimes, even death. There will always be handy manuals that will come with every shiny piece of new equipment you will buy, but these manuals are not always enough. The best people to handle these situations are those who have actually trained and qualified for the job.
The limits on the visibility when it comes to drain cleaning can cause quite a number of terrible accidents. Although sewer camera inspection is always available, it can only do so much especially when there is a massive blockage, there is almost zero visibility. In addition, there is rarely a clear and accurate map of the web of pipes and tubing underground that may be connected or positioned dangerously close to the drain pipe you are working on available. Accidentally damaging these pipes can lead to disaster.
Accidentally cutting through a gas pipe will inevitably cause massive explosions and much damage. When the cutter or any part of the equipment comes in contact with an electric line, the operator may be subject to great electric shock. These and other grave inconveniences result from mishandling drain cleaning situations. In the recent news, a man was reportedly strangled while putting a cutter though his plugged drain. The hood of his sweater reportedly got caught in the equipment which resulted in the fatal strangulation.
The task of cleaning drains and unclogging pipes, no matter how much they resemble everyday tasks, is best left up to the capable hands of the professionals. Entrust the job with the companies who invest so much capital on a regular basis in improving and perfecting the related techniques and technology and with the men who have had ample training and experience implementing those techniques and applying that technology to the problem.
A clogged drain is a problem which causes much inconvenience and should therefore be addressed promptly. This, however, does not mean that you have to do it yourself. There will always be someone available to do the job for you at any hour of the day.
