When it comes to plumbing, few things are as important as the drain. These areas are not only where wastewater flows out but also serve as the link between your fixtures and the rest of your pipes. So, when one becomes damaged or clogged, it won’t take long to notice a problem. This can be something as noticeable as a backed-up sink to as subtle as a slow-draining bathtub. Still, whether the problem is big or small, it’s important to give it immediate attention.
Clogged drains can lead to lowered water pressure and complications throughout your plumbing system. These universal symptoms can make it difficult to pinpoint the origin of the problem. Luckily, as someone who lives in the Port Huron area, you have access to VHP’s plumbing expert. Our plumber will quickly pinpoint the root cause of your clog or drain problem and present a customized solution. To get started, give us a jingle at (810) 985-7103.

So, while that bottle is a lot cheaper than our service call, you need to keep the following in mind:
