How do I unclog my drain?
Clogged drains are a very common problem that could be caused by many things. Grease, oils, soap, food scraps, and more commonly find their way into your pipes. If left untreated, clogs can cause serious plumbing issues.
We don’t recommend that you try to unclog your drain yourself. The harsh chemicals in some drain cleaners can erode your pipes and impact your water quality, improperly used snakes and other tools can damage your pipes, and too much-exerted pressure can blow out any weak spots in your pipes.
If you’re experiencing persistent clogs, the local team of professionals at Drain Doctor Plumbing & Rooter offers a variety of drain cleaning services that can get the job done right.
Why are my faucets always leaking?
Your leaky faucets could be caused by a number of reasons, including faulty rings, corroded valves, worn-out washers or seals, broken pipes, or improper installation. While leaky faucets may seem like a minor annoyance, they can actually indicate a bigger problem. Drain Doctor Plumbing & Rooter technicians have the right tools and experience to quickly stop the leak and help prevent future issues.
What do I do about my constantly running toilet?
Every home and business needs a reliable toilet, but a faulty toilet can cause major disturbances to your work and life.

Incorrect repairs could make the problem worse, but our experienced team can handle your repairs and installations and get your toilet working properly.
Why is my water pressure so low?

If the water pressure is weak in your shower or sink, our team will happily visit your Los Angeles or San Bernardino residence or business to find the root of the problem and restore your pressure.
Why am I seeing a spike in my water bill?
An unexpectedly high water bill can be alarming. It could indicate a leak under your flooring, behind your walls, above your ceiling, or anywhere else where you can’t see it.

Why does my drain stink like sewer?
There are a few reasons why a sink or toilet might be sending foul odors throughout your home or business. Typically, traps in your pipes intentionally hold a little water that forms a seal to prevent gases from creeping up through your plumbing fixtures. If you have a fixture that you aren’t using very often, the water in the trap could evaporate and seep foul odor up through the drain. You could also have a leak, a broken seal, a blocked vent pipe, a damaged fixture, or another issue causing the smell. Our plumbers can help you determine the problem, repair or replace the fixture, and eliminate the smell once and for all.
Will repairing my sewer completely destroy my yard?
In the past, sewer line repairs required a lot of messy excavation that destroyed yards, landscaping, hardscaping, driveways, and other structures. Drain Doctor Plumbing & Rooter offers innovative, non-invasive, trenchless technology to line your existing sewer pipes with resin. The resin hardens and creates a new pipe within your old pipe, eliminating the need to dig up your entire property. Our trenchless sewer drain lining installation typically requires us to dig one small hole, so the process is much cleaner, quicker, and more convenient.
