Trap Cleaning

Waste Trap Cleaning in Santa Maria

Avoid Clogged Drains with Clean Waste Traps

Each sink is outfitted with a drain trap or waste trap designed to catch grease and other debris before it gets washed away into the rest of your plumbing system. The problem is that the trap is sometimes so good at its job that it becomes clogged. If your sink keeps backing up, the trap might be overfilled.

Have our experienced Santa Maria plumbers from Jack's All-American Plumbing take a look at your drain trap by calling (805) 367-5027.

DIY Home Solutions for Pesky Clogs

Can't wait for a plumber? Some minor clogs can be temporarily dislodged from your trap using a few do-it-yourself techniques. Keep in mind that these are only temporary fixes, and repeat clogs should be investigated by an experienced plumber.

If you look under your counter, you'll see a few different pipes connecting the basin to the wall. A tall, straight pipe should extend down from the basin itself. This straight pipe connects to a curved pipe that looks somewhat like a sideways letter "P."

The curved shape of the pipe helps slow and trap waste products that get dropped down the sink. If too many materials get trapped in that curve, you'll notice that your sink has become slow-draining, or even seems to refill from the bottom-up.

Below is the step-by-step guide for cleaning your waste trap:

  • Place a bucket or a pan underneath the waste trap to prevent water leaks from the drain trap
  • Carefully and safely remove the waste trap by unscrewing the slip joint nuts on each side of the "J" pipe
  • Rinse, scrub, and disinfect the trap
  • Check and secure all pipe fittings
  • Reinstall the trap securely to prevent leaks and under-counter floods

If your pipe isn't put back together properly, you run the risk of damaging your cabinets. Let us make sure it's done right!
