Clogged Drain? Repair Options and Advice from our Plumbers at Forbes Plumbing Inc

The Problem with Drain Cleaning Solutions
When a drain begins to respond slower than normal, or stop entirely, then one’s initial response may be to run to the nearest home goods store and buy a solution that promises to relieve the clog and clear the drain. Don’t fall into that trap.
Here are the top three reasons to not put chemicals down your drains:
1. Lye: Lye is often the active ingredient in drain clearing solutions. Lye is an extremely toxic substance. Contact with your eyes or skin is serious and can cause permanent damage. Chemical burns are severe, very painful and leave permanent scars. Don’t use lye to repair or unclog a drain.
2. Chemical explosions: The drain cleaner has the potential to react with substances in your drain and cause an explosion that will send all the corrosive chemical that has been put down the drain back on anyone and anything nearby.
3. Pipe Corrosion: Such substances may clear your drain, but will damage your pipes in the process. Pipes already become weak and brittle over time through the natural corrosion process. When treated with drain cleaners, this process is accelerated. An innocent clearing of a drain can cause leaks costing hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Many different opinions exist regarding the best way to repair clogs. A home’s plumbing system is one of the most vital elements. Don’t experiment with your pipes. Instead trust your plumbing fixes to a professional.
