Should I Use Liquid Drain Cleaners?

One of the most common plumbing emergencies is a clogged drain. Homeowners looking for a DIY quick fix often turn to liquid drain cleaners to conquer a clog or slow drain rather than having a professional plumber properly address the issue. While liquid drain cleaner seems like an easy fix, the upfront money and time saved are short-lived.

Liquid Drain Cleaners and Your Plumbing System

Well-intended homeowners innocently reach for the liquid drain cleaner to rid their homes of an unpleasant clog without realizing how it damages their home’s plumbing system. The ingredients that comprise liquid drain cleaners are harsh on your plumbing system’s internal and external components. The chemical reaction that these chemicals produce causes irreversible damage to your plumbing materials. Liquid drain cleaner chemicals accelerate the deterioration of porcelain, plastic, and PVC, leading to cracks, leaks, pipe corrosion, burst pipes, and premature repiping needs. A burst pipe can cause expensive, permanent damage to your home and property.

Liquid Drain Cleaner and Your Health

While your plumbing is one of the most important systems you maintain, nothing is more important than your personal health system. The chemicals found in drain cleaners are harmful to your eyes, skin, and lungs. Further, direct exposure to liquid drain cleaner must be treated by a medical professional. The team at Frymire Home Services can tell you from experience that this is NOT a risk you want to take.

Liquid Drain Cleaner Doesn’t Offer Lasting Results

While liquid drain cleaners can temporarily address a clog, they wipe out the good bacteria that work to keep drains free and flowing from sitting organic material. The lack of good bacteria at play leads to larger clogs later. Additionally, drain cleaner stops bacteria from naturally reducing the source of a reoccurring clog. Unclogging a drain permanently without the clog building back up requires professional services from highly trained plumbers. Relying on liquid drain cleaner repeatedly leads to more damage to your plumbing and more expensive repairs down the line.
