My morning started with the surprise of a kitchen sink not draining water. ?

My garbage disposal was working fine, but for whatever the reason – once the motor stopped, water would shoot back up.

“So, bacon grease really is a problem, huh?” ?

I’ve done enough DIY projects to know the most effective method of removing small clogs is with a plunger. The key to loosening a clog with a plunger is a good, airtight seal. But I didn’t have the right tool for the job (sink plungers and toilet plungers are different). I was not ’bout to put the bathroom plunger in the sink – #yuckiness!

So I thought I might be able to find the blockage by removing the drain trap under the sink. That didn’t work either – I was done.

I made one call – Atlas Plumbing and Rooter.

I’ve had them out to my condo for emergency and routine maintenance. Their scheduler is always friendly and flexible with my busy work schedule.

Arrived Early - worked quickly - cost was less than quoted estimate!

Juan, their plumber, was prompt, professional, and I could tell he enjoys the work. I cannot sing the praises of Atlas Plumbing & Rooter loudly enough! Not only will they get all the jobs out of my condo – but I intend to connect my neighbors too. It’s nice to have someone local you can trust to get the job done right and on time.

He arrived early. Charged LESS than his estimate. Provided me with a guarantee of satisfaction or he would return at no additional cost.

Before Juan left – he explained what I could do to reduce the need for him to return anytime soon.  Stuff I know we know – but don’t always do. ?

1. Do not put grease or oil down your kitchen drain. 

Grease, fat, and other oils can adhere to your pipes. Other debris then sticks to the grease and creates a stubborn kitchen drain clog. Instead, throw grease, fat and oils in the garbage in a sealed container.

2. Install strainers on all drains.

Hair commonly causes drain clogs, especially in showers and bathtubs. You can easily prevent these clogs by installing a screen or strainer on your drains and remembering to clean them regularly.

3. Pay attention to what goes down your drain.

Things that solidify, such as paint, glue, and wax should never be put down your drain. These items will harden inside of your pipes, causing either a partial or whole blockage.

4. Remember: your toilet is NOT a wastebasket.

The only thing that should ever be flushed down your toilet (besides the obvious) is toilet paper. Facial tissues, sanitary products, cotton balls, and diapers are not made to properly dissolve in water and will cause a clog if flushed down your toilet.

5. When using the disposal, run cold water. 

Run cold water at least fifteen seconds after you turn your disposal off. This will clear the pipes of any remaining debris and help prevent clogs.
