Most of us don’t think about our drains and pipes until it’s too late. At that point we have a significant issue or serious clog that requires a professional drain line opener or plumber to cure the problem. We are all familiar with the phrase - An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - meaning it is much easier and better to do something to prevent a problem than to do a lot of fixing after it has happened.
What can go wrong?
There are certain tasks we take for granted in our home such as cleaning and changing linens, mopping and vacuuming floors and carpets, and cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, sinks and counters. While these efforts take care of surface issues, the real issues can occur in hidden areas and you may not be aware of the damage until it’s a real problem. One of these problems is drain build-up and blockage which can occur from grease, food particles, tiny objects, debris, and other stuff which can gradually and slowly collect inside the pipes and obstruct the flow of water. If not treated properly this can lead to stagnant water and clogs in pipes and drains.
What problems can result?
Stagnant water that has accumulated for a long time will lead to foul, musty odors in your home. Stagnant water can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes that transmit disease and can be dangerous for drinking because it provides a better incubator than running water for many kinds of parasites and bacteria. Water can also leak into the foundations of the house, leading to discoloration, water stains, or warping. In addition blocked drains can lead to serious clogs that can back-up into your home leaving a mess.
PROBLEMS WITH CURRENT SOLUTIONS AVAILABLE FOR HOMEOWNERS
One solution for clogs is to use a chemical drain line opener which typically consists of caustic (often sodium hydroxide) or acid (often sulfuric acid). These chemical drain line cleaners are corrosive and can damage your pipes and fixtures and can also burn through your clothes and skin if you are not careful. Chemical drain line openers are not very effective removing clogs far from the drain opening (for example in main sewer drain or in toilets) and acidic cleaners can contribute to water pollution. An alternative to using chemical drain line openers is to hire a professional plumber, which can be costly. The average cost for a plumber to fix a clog can range from $100 - $300+ depending upon the severity and location of the clog.
