When it happens, clogged toilets can quickly become major inconveniences - especially if you are having to constantly deal with them! Frequent toilet issues may stem from inappropriate flushing or it could point to larger problems down the drain line. No matter the source of the problem, our team will perform an accurate inspection to diagnose the issue and recommend the best solution.
Chris Wilson Plumbing & Heating Repairs Inc is committed to delivering high quality services throughout Seaside, CA and surrounding areas. We use the latest technology and techniques to resolve your toughest plumbing and drain problems, including clogged toilets!
Clogged toilets are resolved in one of two ways: drain snaking or hydrojetting.
After an inspection using video pipe technology, we will know exactly what’s causing the blockage and how it should be handled. Remember, using store-bought drain cleaners is not recommended, as overuse can harm your pipes and lead to premature damage.
Snaking: This is essentially augering. We use a drain snake to punch holes through the clog, allowing for easy water flow.
Hydrojetting: For a more thorough clean, we recommend hydrojetting. This method scours pipe walls clean using high pressure water. Give us a call to learn if hydrojetting is what you need!
