3 Common Myths About Clogged Drains

Three Myths About Clogged Drains

It is not a good idea to start a dishwashing cycle only to find that water has accumulated in the sink. Clogged drains are one of the most common problems we see in plumbing. However, homeowners often don’t know what to do with them.

These are three common myths about clogged drains. They will help you to deal with your next one.

Slow drains aren’t so bad

It is possible for a partial blockage to form before a full-blown clog occurs. You may have food particles or other debris stuck, but it is not enough to block the flow. You may notice your sink draining slowly or see some gurgling.

You may feel tempted to leave it alone (it still works right?) This will only cause a bigger problem later. It is possible to clear a partially blocked drain on your own. This will save you money and time.

Chemical drain cleaners are effective

Many homeowners make a point to go to the local hardware store when they have a blocked drain. Although this might seem like an affordable and sensible solution, it is not. Although they may clear a blockage, chemical drain cleaners can cause serious damage to your pipes. These cleaners can cause corrosion inside your pipes which will make them less durable than usual.

Clogs aren’t more than a nuisance

A clog may seem like a blockage that prevents you from using your sink efficiently. A clogged drain can cause other problems. If left untreated, a blockage in a pipe can cause pressure buildup and eventually lead to a leakage or burst. A simple solution can prevent serious damage to your home.

If home remedies are not effective in clearing a drain, you should call your local plumber immediately.
