Taking care of your home takes top priority for Ocala, FL homeowners. Since it is arguably your biggest investment, it’s important to make sure your plumbing components and pipes are working safely and efficiently.
One of the biggest issues that affect the pipes and drains are blockages and clogs. Clogged drains are created by debris such as hair, food, grease, and oil that get stuck in the drain. At Service Plumbing, we specialize in professional drain cleaning methods that will remove stubborn clogs and keep your drains working efficiently for the future.
Signs You Need Drain Cleaning Service
Over time, debris enters your drains and gets stuck to the inner pipe wall. If left alone, it will continue to build and congeal until a large, stubborn clog forms that prevent water from draining properly. Clogged drains are more than an inconvenience. If left unchecked, a blockage in the drain could lead to more serious plumbing problems. If you notice any of the following issues in your home, call a professional drain cleaning company right away:

What Is Hydrojetting?
When it comes to truly stubborn clogs that have been left alone to harden and solidify in the drain, sometimes regular drain cleaning is not sufficient. In these cases, we recommend hydro jetting. As the name implies, hydro jetting or drain jetting uses a high-pressure water jet to blast through debris and solid blockages in the drain.
The high-pressure water also smooths the inner texture of the pipe, which helps prevent recurring clogs and keeps your drains cleaner for longer. This service is also used for cleaning sewer lines. Drain jetting and sewer jetter services are preferred over DIY drain cleaners because there are no harmful chemicals used and the integrity of the pipes is protected.

Can I repipe my home myself?While it is possible to repipe a home yourself, it is not recommended, as it can be a difficult and dangerous process. Repiping a home requires working with water and pipes, which can easily lead to accidents if not done correctly. It is best to leave this job to the professionals.
What should I do if my water pressure is low?If your water pressure is low, you may need to call a plumber to have your water pressure checked. Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a clogged water filter or a leaky faucet. It's important to address low water pressure as soon as possible, as it can lead to water waste and increased energy costs.
How often should I clean my drains?It is recommended that you clean your drains every six months. However, if water is backing up into the tub, sink, or toilet in your home when you flush it, then you need to call a plumber right away to clean the drain. If water backs up into your sink then it's probably coming from your shower and vice versa. Cleaning out the lines will prevent water from backing up into your home.
What is the best way to clear a clogged grease drain?
There are a few effective ways to clear a grease-clogged drain.
- Use boiling water and dish soap to break up grease buildup.
- Pour water mixed with baking soda into the drain, then pour vinegar on top of it to get a chemical reaction that breaks down grease.
- Drain cleaners can also remove water buildup and hard water scale.
- Plumbers recommend using a water-powered mechanical drain cleaner to clear clogs altogether. These machines are easy to use and clear away any type of clog quickly.
For a badly clogged drain, you may need to hire a professional plumber that can clear out the drain with special equipment.
What are the different water heater sizes?
Water heaters come in a variety of sizes, and the size you need depends on how much water your household uses. Here are some general water heater size guidelines:
- If you use less than 40 gallons of water per day, a 40- or 50-gallon water heater will be large enough.
- If you use between 40 and 80 gallons of water per day, a water heater with a capacity of 60 or 80 gallons will probably be required.
- If you use over 80 gallons of water per day, an 85-gallon water heater should provide an adequate supply.
Note that these are general guidelines only; how much water your household actually uses may vary. To be sure you have the right water heater size, consult with a plumbing professional.
