Prevent Clogs | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

A bit of prevention – with some help from the drain-cleaning pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber – will help keep your drains free of clogs.

You were happy to drop the kids off at the Kids Night Out event at the New Port Richey recreation center on Saturday night. But rather than the relaxing evening you’d envisioned for yourself, you spent the evening trying to clear a clog in your kitchen sink. You finally succeeded, but it was a frustrating evening.

Clogs are more than irritating. They can damage pipes. And your efforts to clear them can also eat away at pipes while not entirely removing the clog. explains: “Clogged drains are the most common home plumbing problem, and you can buy chemicals to clear them. But these products sometimes do more harm than good. They can actually erode cast-iron drainpipes. And because they typically don’t remove the entire clog, the problem is likely to recur, causing you use the chemicals repeatedly.”

Your better bet, says, is to hire a plumber to snake the drain and fully clear the clog.

Once that’s done, you can do a lot to keep clogs from recurring. Among them, according to Watch what you put down the drain – no food scraps and no grease (even liquid grease, which solidifies once it cools and gets into the pipes);  soften the water if you have “hard water” because the mineral build up and block your pipes; if you have a septic tank, get it pumped out every three to five years: and, if you are attached to a municipal water supply, have your main sewage cleanout snaked every few years to get rid of any tree roots that are growing into the system.
