  • Plugged PVC drains????

    How often are you guys running across plugged pvc drains? Just curious, since it had been quite some time since I had one, till yesterday. Kitchen sink arm plugged solid with sour kraut.

      I run into it a bit more than one would expect. Poor plumbing installation, or abuse of the system leads to problems.
      If I can't fix it, I will help you find a good plumber.

        All the time, since PVC is the most common pipe type around
        here. While it's true that PVC doesn't degrade like CI, I find that
        improper installation is just as big a problem as anything else.
        Back pitched or level pipe, lack of proper bedding causing bellies,
        faulty or non-existent venting, wrong or improperly installed
        fittings, all cause stoppages eventually.
