Tips for Homeowner DIY Drain Cleaning

Home Improvement

Dirty pipes and drains in a home can lead to leaks and water damage putting a structure at risk. Regular drain cleaning in Alpharetta homes can prevent disastrous clogs from forming. Hiring a plumber to perform professional drain cleaning services like hydro-jetting and drain snaking is the best way to guarantee clean pipes and ease of plumbing usage. However, it’s always a good idea to have a little know-how when it comes to clearing and preventing blockages so you don’t have to call for an emergency plumber in the middle of the night.

Be Mindful of What Is Flushed

Too many people believe that anything can be flushed down the toilet. Unfortunately, this is erroneous thinking. Toilets are not designed to accept anything other than waste material and sewer/septic-safe toilet paper. Anything thing else flushed has the potential to clog the drain trap or cling to the inside of the water pipes.

Paper products like paper towels, facial tissues as well as products like baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, and other non-organic material are not made to dissolve in water like toilet tissue. When these kinds of items are flushed, the potential for a clog exists. Even if you’ve flushed these items before without problems, it doesn’t mean that you’ll always get so lucky.

Buy the Right Type of Plunger

Not all plungers are made to dislodge all clogs. Sink, shower, and bathtub drains require a plunger that can make a flat connection over the drain. This type of plunger may be able to help you clear a shallow clog in a sink, but it won’t be of any use clearing a clog in a toilet. To clear a toilet clog, you need a plunger that has a cone inside of the normal circular part that can create a strong suction within the toilet’s trap. Both types of plungers can be bought inexpensively at your local home improvement store.

Try a Using a Drain Snake

Drain snakes can clear toilet clogs quickly. This plumbing tool is a long, thin coil that unwinds using a lever to push it through the toilet drain and the subsequent drain pipe. As the coil is pushed through the pipe, the idea is that it will dislodge any blockage allowing water to flow freely through the pipe again.

Drain snakes are easy to use and can be a handy tool to relieve clogged toilets and even kitchen sinks now and then. The one drawback to using this tool is that it can scratch porcelain toilet bowls leaving behind imperfections.

Avoid Liquid Drain Cleaners

A clogged sink or shower isn’t pleasant, especially when you’re trying to get ready in the morning. A clogged toilet can be even more frustrating. It’s easy to understand why so many homeowners opt to purchase liquid drain cleaners because of the ease of use. Plumbers, however, warn homeowners against resorting to this drain cleaning tactic.

Liquid drain cleaners contain chemicals that can be damaging to pipes over time. Using a drain cleaning product once or twice may not cause problems, but pouring this chemical down the drain continuously can corrode plumbing and lead to breakdowns.

If you’re purchasing drain cleaning products regularly, you really should have your pipes inspected to see if there is something else going on. Piping that is corroded, cracked, or installed incorrectly can cause problems that mimic a blockage. In cases like these, drain cleaners aren’t going to do any good, and you’re just wasting your money.

Professional Drain Cleaning Services

One of the benefits of professional drain cleaning in Alpharetta is that you’ll have assurance from your plumber that everything is cleared – no more guessing if your tactics worked. To keep your plumbing in tip-top condition, call your local plumber to schedule drain cleaning services.
