Avoid Drain Cleaning Problems by Watching What You Throw Down the Drain

by bpsupp19274

Clogs are a common problem in any household plumbing system, and when your pipes get stopped up, a friendly plumbing service is always the way to go. Plumbers bring tools and skills that can’t be replaced by store-bought cleansers, as well as ensuring that the whole clog is taken care of.

But we also know that calling in a plumber means added expense, and that instead of dealing with the clog once it’s formed, it’s just as easy to keep a clog from forming in the first place. By carefully monitoring what you throw down the drain, you can stop a large number of clogs before they start.

Clogs most often form in the kitchen sink, where we prepare food and where foodstuffs we think will be ground up by the garbage disposal can end up causing some big problems. Check before tossing these foods down the drain, and place them in the garbage instead.

  • Fats, oils and grease, or FOG, which gets poured down the drain in hot liquid form, but cool and solidify in the pipes. Pour them into a used food can instead, then throw the can away once they cool.
  • Fibrous vegetables, which include potato peelings, carrots and celery. They can get tangled in the pipes and create a stubborn clog.
  • Coffee grounds, which can swell with water and make for a stubborn clog. They can also clog the gears in your garbage disposal.
  • Pasta and rice, which can similarly swell with water and get tangled up in your pipes with surprising ease.
  • Seeds and bones. Most people know not to throw any bones down the drain, no matter hose small they are. The same holds true with fruit seeds, including seeds from apples and oranges as well as bigger seeds like cherry pits.
