Without doubt, one of the most common plumbing problems is the drain clog. Drain clogs might not seem like such a big deal at first. So, what if the water moves a little bit slower down the drain? Well, drain clogs do not magically fix themselves. Rather, drain clogs only get worse as time goes on. Before you know it, the water takes an eternity to finally empty in your sink or tub. Do not let it come to that. If you do not want to deal with standing water and the potentially hazardous bacteria that love to propagate in standing water; not to mention, the potential for a serious backup in your bathroom or kitchen, then keep your drain line clean and clear. You can do just that by following some simple tips.
Be very careful about what goes down the drain. There are some things that might seem okay to throw down the drain but will end up contributing to serious clogs. Leftover grease from the pan, pasta, fat, rice, coffee grounds, and large bits of food are definite no-no’s for your drain line. Run hot water down the drain after washing the dishes. Even if you properly dispose of leftover oil, grease, and food, there may still be small leftovers that could be washed down the drain. Hot water will help to flush the potential clogging agents through the plumbing system so that those potential clogging agents do not have a chance to settle and get stuck inside of the drain line.
What about your toilet? Well, other than your natural business and flushable toilet paper, you really should not try to flush anything else. That means no paper towels or products that are clearly labeled as non-flushable. Pretty simple.
This brings us to the shower drain. There can be quite a lot of hair that can get trapped in the drain, leading to clogs. Leftover soap bits can also find their way down the drain and contribute to clogs. The best line of defense is a quality drain strainer that can catch hair and small pieces of soap.
