Three Tips For Avoiding A Clogged Drain

Imagine if you could live your entire life without having to deal with a clog in your toilet, shower, or sink… it’s the small things that count! Total prevention is a pipe dream, but following these tips will make clogs less likely — preventing unnecessary stress and expenses in your life.

Tips For Avoiding A Clogged Drain

Easy as 1, 2, 3

  1. The easiest way to prevent clogs is to not flush anything that isn’t meant to be flushed. This means don’t flush if it isn’t natural waste or toilet paper for the toilet! And for other fixtures like the sink, make sure only water goes down the drain, not fatty liquids.
  2. It’s smart to apply a mesh or something to catch debris before it slips down the drain. It may be icky cleaning out these traps, but it will prevent hair clogs, and may even save the odd wedding ring or two.
  3. Not many people do this, but it’s a good investment to conduct a plumbing check — whether on your own if you’re confident or by professionals. A lot of unexpected factors, like root intrusion or pipe erosion, can cause clogs. While they can’t be predicted, they can be observed and caught before they become major problems.
