What are the causes that lead to Drain Replacement?
One of the causes of flooding in toilets, sinks or showers are often a result of what’s being sent down homeowners’ pipes and drains.
It can be anything from overstuffing a toilet with too many tissues or a toy being thrown down a drain – and the consequences can be insurmountable.
It’s very important to keep a watchful eye on all your drains with its labyrinth piping throughout your home that at any given moment can wreak havoc over your home.
Your pipes are often vulnerable to getting clogged at times – both inside and out.
Having a proper maintenance plan of action to ensure your pipes don’t get clogged can go a long way to your pipes’ longevity in your home or business.
Often times, if the clog is too much to handle, a drain replacement can be the only solution to getting your pipes back on track and working to perfection.
When to know if you need a drain replacement
As with most plumbing emergencies, a clogged drain can become hazardous to your health if not treated properly and in a timely fashion.
At times, waste can pile up within your pipes and back up your shower or sink, resulting in a bad odor from your drain pipes.
Make sure you have a competent plumber check out your clogged sink or shower and determine whether it needs a full replacement or not. Multiple drains with multiple clogs can become cumbersome for your piping system and might need a full replacement.
Preferred Plumbing Solutions can help determine the causes and give you step-by-step solutions to rectifying those issues.

Tree Roots and Trunks
Outside the home, a common issue plumbers will see are full tree roots and trunks intersecting with your piping system.
With older homes, at times those tree roots will cross with your plumbing system and cause unimaginable havoc to your pipes, creating tears in the joints of your pipes and oftentimes, breaking them altogether.
With widespread underground roots, these older trees are a force of nature – literally – and can be a common cause to drain replacements.
To get to the “root” of this issue, it will require the plumbers to either do an open-cut repair job or a trenchless repair which will require a full pipe re-lining.
If homeowners will notice a break in their piping system, we fully recommend they don’t touch anything until a local plumber has come to assess the issue.
These older trees and your piping system are very delicate and require a steady hand and a professional touch.
