What Not to Do to Your Drain System

If you are looking for ways to maintain your drain system, the Raleigh plumbers at JD Service Now can help. First, here's a list of things you shouldn’t do to your drain system.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

The first thing you shouldn’t do, whether you have a slow drain or overflowing toilet, is to use harsh chemicals in your drain lines. Even for a clogged sink, it is always better to call a plumber instead of putting conventional drain cleaners down the drain.

Consider a Safer Option

Not only will this be a temporary fix, but there could also be a larger problem. A professional plumber will be able to clear the drain and look for larger issues. Hydro-jetting will clean your drains safely and effectively, without causing any damage to your pipes. Using certain chemicals in your pipes can harm them and leech chemicals into the ground.

Watch What You Flush

The easiest way to prevent clogs in your drains is not to flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet.

Here's a list of things you should not flush down your toilet:

  • Diapers
  • Cat Litter
  • Paper Towels
  • Baby Wipes
  • Chemicals
  • Grease
  • Hair
  • Latex
  • Trash
  • Dental Floss

Overall, use good judgment when using the toilet in your home, especially if you have older pipes. Also, plungers are intended for occasional use. If your toilets are constantly backing up or overflowing, you could have a larger problem in the drain line.

No matter what your drain problems are, call JD Service Now for your next Raleigh plumbing service. We offer not only drain cleaning, but also residential and commercial hydro-jetting.
