Be Kind to Your Pipes | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Don’t use harsh chemicals to clear plumbing clogs because they can damage your pipes. If you have a clog you can’t clear or damaged pipes, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

You’re headed to the beach today even though your kitchen sink has a stubborn clog. You’re figuring you can drop by the store on the way home and pick up some drain cleaner. Then, when you get home, you’ll dump it in the sink and everything will be fine.

Well, maybe. Be careful what you buy and make sure it is not a harsh chemical.

“Drain cleaners, whether chemical, acid, or oxidizing, can be devastating to one’s plumbing because their chemical components include lye, potash, bleach, sodium hydroxide, and nitrates…. Some even contain sulfuric acid, manufactured for extremely clogged drains. These elements are dangerous, and prolonged usage can contribute to early pipe replacement, among other things,” according to adds, “Everyday household products, enzymatic cleaners, and implements such as snakes and plungers are benign alternatives to using harsh chemicals. Even wire hangers can help to clear your drains. A barbed hook, like a mini-snake, is also available to remove hair clogs from sinks or drains.

“Kitchen staples including vinegar, baking soda, and dish soap can substitute for chemical drain cleaners. Coffee grounds, hot water, and hydrogen peroxide can all be used to clear drains. These are environmentally sound, readily available, and relatively inexpensive choices.”

If you’ve got a clog that you can’t budge or have damaged pipes, it’s time to call the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
