When your drain clogs, who do you call? You either call your spouse, or you give a local plumber a call for plumbing services. It’s not enough to hope that the slow drain of your sink or toilet is going to go away on its own. Plus, allowing your toilet to overflow can get messy. A clogged drain, no matter the entry point, can be as simple as using a plunger to break loose whatever’s in the way, or it could be a sign of a serious clog that needs professional attention to remedy.
This is where Action Jackson Plumbing comes in to help.

No matter the reason, it’s best to get your plumbing issues resolved immediately to avoid any serious plumbing problems that could cost you a ton later.
Signs You Need Hydro Jetting
When your drains clog, you may be able to get by with a plunger or a snake. While these can be effective tools, they may only provide a temporary solution. For most homeowners, a clogged drain builds up over time, and it’s not noticed because the clog gradually builds. A clogged drain isn’t like dropping an egg off the roof of a house and it smashing into the driveway. A clogged drain is more like driving across the country in your grandma’s Pinto (bless her soul); it takes time.
#1. Your Drains Smell Bad
If you smell a stench, funk, or odor coming from your drains, it may be that they’re clogged somewhere down the line (or about to be clogged). Bad smells can be anything from rotten food to mold and everything in between. Get this taken care of as soon as possible.
#2. Frequently Clogged Drains
If you’ve used a plunger, snake, and chemicals to try and clear your drains without success, you may have a more serious drain problem than you realize. Drains that frequently back up typically have two or more partial clogs that slow the flow of liquid. If this is the case, the outcome of not treating these clogs could be costly — and put your family at risk.
#3. Plumbing Inspection
When’s the last time you had a plumbing inspection? If it’s been more than 12 months, you may want to consider getting one scheduled as soon as possible. Even though you may not have any visible issues now, a lot goes on with your plumbing that you never see. An inspection may find a leak, potential clog, or other issue before it becomes a major problem.
