So, Your sink is clogged and not clogged like the picture, CLOGGED. You have bought all the liquid drain cleaner at the store, repeatedly poured it down the drain, to no avail. The commercials lied, that plugged drain isn't going anywhere. What to do?
What if I told you that repeatedly using liquid drain cleaner is actually making the problem WORSE? I know, I have seen the commercials too. That giant hair nest is no match for this magic liquid that just moves the large mass right out of the pipe, out of your life and directly into the sewer. Now as you stare at the full sink, plunger and the empty bottles of chemicals you just used, you are ready for some advice from the experts.
I bet now you are wondering, "Why can't I use drain cleaners to fix clogged drains?" This, is where I come in. Repeated use of drain cleaners will kill your pipes. Now instead of clogged pipes, you will have leaking pipes. I see it frequently, a smaller problem that becomes a bigger problem.
What does that bigger problem look like?
This pipe was repeatedly exposed to corrosive liquid drain cleaners. Over time it ate through the metal and destroyed the pipe, resulting in the immediate need for replacement plumbing. What could have prevented this?
Do not ever flush sanitary napkins or tampons down the toilet.
Get a screened hair strainer for your bathtub.
If your kitchen sink doesn't have a garbage disposal don't shove food down the drain.
Do not rinse grease or oil down your sinks.
If the clogged drain is a persistent issue, call a pro.
