Drain Maintenance | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Regularly cleaning your drains will help avoid clogs. For slow drains or other plumbing problems you can’t handle, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

The weather around Tampa Bay has been great for getting outdoors and blowing all the cobwebs out of your head. Wandering around Fort De Soto Park and watching the birds was especially relaxing. Unfortunately, you had to return home and deal with a slow drain in your kitchen sink. You actually left a sink full of water, but you’re assuming the water will be gone by the time you return.

It certainly sounds as if you have some kind of clog. If you’ve been a homeowner for any length of time, you’ve probably figured out that slow drains and plumbing clogs can be a fact of life. Many homeowners don’t realize, however, they can prevent many clogs by watching what they put down the drain – or in the garbage disposal – and by performing a bit of maintenance to keep the drain and pipe clog-free.

“Set a regular maintenance routine. It is the best way to keep the drains clog-free in your home. It does not take much time or much money to perform this regular maintenance. And it can save you from the cost of a severely clogged drain,” thespruce.com advises. “Also, keep a drain’s four biggest problem items from going down the drain: cooking grease, coffee grounds, hair, and soap scum. Collect cooking grease in an old jar or tin and dispose of it in the garbage, compost or throw out coffee grounds, and get a good mesh catch to cover the drain and capture the hair and soap scum.”

Thespruce.com advises that you pour a pot of boiling water down your drain once a month to melt any grease and help wash away other buildup. Simply pour half the pot down the drain, wait a few minutes and pour the rest. Once a month, you should use an enzymatic cleaner to help dissolve any organic matter.

Sometimes, no matter what you do, you’ll end up with a slow drain or a stubborn clog that you can’t fix yourself. If that does happen, you may need a trusted plumber to help. You can find a reliable 24-hour plumber at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
