    Drain Pro Client Testimonials

    “I made an appointment to have our condos drains checked with a camera. Jason the plumber arrived early and started right away. He had all the drains inspected quickly. Gave a detailed description of any sediment and suggested what should be done but that we were good for a while yet, no pressure to hurry. Will definitely have them back when the time comes.”

    With The Right Tools and Tricks, Drain Clogs Don’t Stand a Chance.

    If you noticed one or more plumbing appliances that weren’t draining or draining slowly, tried looking for the clog to fix without any luck, or tried some basic fixes to improve the drainage of those appliances that didn’t work, we understand your frustration. Clogged drains can seem like an easy fix, but they usually aren’t. You need to be able to find exactly where the drain pipe is clogged, and be able to get rid of it. For someone who doesn’t know how, or doesn’t have the right tools to do so, this could be nearly impossible, and could even lead to more damage to the plumbing system.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can you tell whether I have a clogged drain and where the drain clog is located?2020-09-30T13:21:24+00:00

    A clogged drain will manifest itself in the form of not allowing water to pass through, ergo creating a backup of water. You may notice water pooling or even flooding. This is problematic for clogged sinks, clogged toilets, clogged tubs and showers and any other blocked drains in your home. When Drain Pro arrives on the scene, our expert plumbers will determine where the clog is located and how best to unclog it. In some cases we will use video inspection equipment to locate the clogged drain, as it could be well down the line and not visible to the human eye or easily reached by standard DIY unclogging equipment (e.g. “the snake”). Rest assured, we’ll find that clog and get rid of your drain clogs.

    I’m noticing flooding around my yard. Is it possible I have perimeter drainage that is clogged?2020-09-30T13:21:42+00:00

    This could very well be the case. Clogged drains at the perimeter of a house are not unheard of. The important thing is to get out ahead of the situation, not allowing the clogged drain to persist – otherwise, water pooling could expand and flooding could occur, putting your home’s foundation (and home interior!) at risk. This goes for all clogged drains, anywhere in the home, as it’s best to take care of the drain clog ASAP to prevent bigger issues down the line. Count on Drain Pro, the plumbing pros in Victoria and Lower Vancouver Island, to assess your clogged drains and rectify the situation ASAP.

    How long does it take to unclog a drain pipe?2021-03-23T18:27:04+00:00

    This ultimately depends on where the clog is located. If the clog is closer to the sink, toilet, shower or bathtub, then it could take as quickly as five minutes to remove the drain clog. If the clog is located deeper in the drainage system, it could take a few hours to locate and remove the drain clog.

    Can I use a drain cleaner like Drano to fix a clogged drain?2021-03-23T18:37:41+00:00

    You can but we wouldn’t recommend it. These drain cleaners often contain harmful chemicals that pollute the water and cause extra wear to plumbing pipes. If the blockage is especially large and stuck in place, you will probably end up using more drain cleaner to try and solve the problem, putting more harmful chemicals into the water and doing more damage to your pipes. Even then there is no guarantee that it will remove those extremely stubborn clogs. It’s quicker, safer and more environmentally friendly to trust the premiere plumbing experts in Victoria, Drain Pro Plumbing to handle your clogged drains.

    How can I avoid clogged drains?2021-06-17T13:34:20+00:00

    You can avoid clogged drains by being aware of what you are putting down your drains. Use filters on your shower and tub drain to catch hair and other objects. For sinks, use a strainer to catch debris. Grease or other thicker liquids can build up and cause clogged drains. Proactive measures, such as the ones mentioned above, are the best way to avoid clogged drains.
