Unclog Your Drain Without Using Chemicals


Clogged DrainA clogged drain is one of the most common problems that a homeowner can and will face. As a homeowner with one project after another, it’s common to look for the easiest and cheapest solution when it comes to fixing problems. I’m here to tell you that saving money and time by using chemicals to fix your clogged drain, will cost you more money and time in the long run, so it is definitely better to trust the issue with trained plumbing technicians.

Chemicals tend to be a quick fix, that doesn’t actually fix anything. The reason being is that clogged drains tend to be from one of two things. Long term buildup that is slow and can cause clogs to form slowly, or any number of things that just happens to be stuck in your drain. Chemicals are meant to dissolve whatever is stuck down there, begging the question, what else are they dissolving? If they do end up eating away at your pipes over time, this can be a cause for much more costly repairs in the future.

If your drains are constantly clogging then the most important question to ask is why? Getting to the root of this problem versus the constant quick fixes is the most cost effective and correct way to solve the problem. If you are continuing to use chemicals clog after clog, then you will never actually know the root of the problem before it’s too late.

Chemicals are bad for you, plain and simple. When you use chemicals in your drain you are causing unnecessary exposure to you, your family, and the environment. A little extra time and money to fix a clogged drain right the first time, is much more valuable then whatever harm you could be causing to the people around you. When it comes right down to it, whether it’s fixing a clogged drain, or a any other little issue that we as homeowners come across, in the long run it’s better to do things the right way, the first time.
