drain blockage solutions
Today we want to tell you how you can take care of your sewer system. The best thing you can do is try to avoid drain blockage and clogging. But what about maintenance?
Try to avoid getting a large amount of fat in your drains. It is better, for example, to wipe the pan with a paper towel to get rid of the fat as opposed to dumping it in the kitchen sink. Often, if there is a building trap, drain system may be blocked by external objects – by a tennis ball, for instance. It may get into the drain, for example, if a dog somehow got it into the toilet. So if you have a dog in the house, try to keep the washroom closed.
An old and proven way to remove fat from the walls of your sewer pipes is using baking soda. Dissolve a pack of soda in a gallon of warm water and slowly pour the substance down the kitchen sink.
You can also use chemical solutions to clean your sewer system. In this case, be sure to read the instruction manual, as these chemicals can be overly aggressive and may dissolve the pipe walls of the sewer system. Before chemical cleaning make sure that the cleaner is suitable for iron, copper and plastic pipes.
Remember, it is much easier and cheaper to prevent clogging or drain blockage, than to deal with their consequences.
