Drain CleanersIt may not be something that you’ve ever given a second thought, but choosing the right liquid drain cleaner can be important when it comes to your drains. There are drain cleaners in the form of liquid, gel, and powder, and each one has different qualities. Maybe you use them on a daily basis or maybe you don’t have much experience with them, but there are a few things you should know about drain cleaners.

If you want to find out more about drain cleaners and why you should be using them, read on!

When You Should Use Drain Cleaners

If your drains are gurgling, blocked, or making strange noises, there is a chance you have some sort of blockage. If so, you will want to consider using an effective drain blocker to fight through the debris. There are, of course, many reasons as to why your drains may be blocked, and if your go to drain cleaner isn’t doing the job, you may want to speak to us at Pratt Plumbing.

It’s important to bear in mind that you should be using drain cleaners consistently as part of your drain cleaning maintenance. If you do clean your drains properly and often, you will avoid most major issues and blockages.

Different Types of Drain Cleaners

There are different types of drain cleaners, such as caustic drain cleaners, oxidizing drain cleaners, and acid drain cleaners. The latter aren’t commonly found in stores or in the household section as they are usually only used by plumbers.

Because most drain cleaning products generate heat, they may soften the polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, pipes found in homes. With this in mind, you may want to enlist the help of professionals when it comes to maintaining the quality of your pipes.  Pick up the phone and call us at 806-373-7866.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
