Drain clogs and the reason why they are hard to provide warranties. Many customers assume that there are warranties with drain cleaning services, while most Orlando plumbing companies do not give warranties with drain cleaning. The ones that do usually have major stipulations to where most anything will void the warranty.
So why is it so hard to warranty a drain clog? Drain lines can clog from quite a few reasons ranging from improper installation to objects in the line. Here are the main reasons why drains get clogged:
Settling of the sewer line which creates back pitch
Objects such as feminine products baby wipes
Broken drain line
If a plumber snakes your line all they can do is clear what is in there and bring to the customers attention what was causing the issue. If the drain is clogged because of a broken line, roots or improper pitch the line would have to be fixed to prevent future issues. Without fixing the underlining problem there is no way a plumber can warranty the work. If foreign objects are cleared from the line the plumber should tell the customer what was found in the drain, however if the customer flushes the objects down again there is no way to warranty the job. In older homes the cast iron lines can degrade over time causing scale build-up, which will reduce the effectiveness of the drains.
When you call for a clogged drain or a cleaning, all your plumber can do is clear it for the day, once the roots grow back or the baby wipes are flushed there is nothing more that can be done other than clear the clog again. Most plumbers will be happy to replace old or improper lines, should that be the best option. If you need a drain cleaned call Drain Genie Plumbing Services at 407-490-1230.
