In your toilet:The best way to maintain your toilet drain is to avoid flushing anything that isn’t biodegradable, such as diapers and paper towels. If you flush these items down the toilet, you are almost guaranteed a clog down the road.
In your kitchen sink:Your kitchen drainsare also affected by several items that can end up creating clogs. Avoid letting grease, oils, stringy vegetables, and eggshells enter your drains.
In your bathtub: Hair is the usual culprit when it comes to clogged tubs and showers. Use a strainer to catch hair before it enters the drain, and make sure to clean your drain out every so often.
If your toilet seems to drain slowly, there are some things you can try before calling your plumber.
One thing you can do is flush boiled water down the toilet. This can help break up the clog and allow the water to naturally carry away the accumulated debris. This is also a good thing to do regularly, in order to prevent clogs from developing at all. If this trick doesn’t work, try using your plunger to loosen up the clog.
Your sink can benefit from this same hot water treatment as well. This can be something that you do once a week, or even just once a month. And remember...
Pouring chemicals down your drain may help during emergencies. However, if you’re using it every time your drain is clogged, it will eventually damage your drains. If you have to, try using a natural liquid solution that is safe for both the environment and your pipes.
