The Best Way To Handle A Clogged Drain Is Prevention

Most clogs are dirty. And they’re a hassle. But they’re more than that because the pressure that the backed up water causes on your sewer pipes can actually shorten their lifespan. And you really don’t want leaking sewer pipes!

The best way to prevent clogged drains is to be mindful of what goes down your drains. Here are the top three clog culprits and simple ways to avoid them:

Hair, mixed with soap, can definitely create a nasty clog. Install screens over your tub and shower drains so hair doesn’t go down the drain.

Don’t flush anything down the toilet besides toilet paper and the obvious human waste stuff. Even the flushable baby wipes can create a pretty gnarly clog.

Never pour liquid grease down your drain. Once it cools, it will solidify and the build up will eventually keep your drain from doing its job. Instead of pouring it down the drain or garbage disposal, let the grease cool and then throw it away in your regular garbage.

Fun Fact

What’s with the silent B in Plumber? Why isn’t it spelled Plummer and Plumming? Centuries ago, the B was pronounced in words ending with MB, but for some unknown reason, the B became silent around the 1300’s. Other MB words with an “unofficial” silent B are lamb, climb and thumb.
