How to prevent a blocked drain.

One of the absolute best ways to prevent a blocked drain is to be careful about what you put into them. Cooking grease, coffee grounds, hair, and soap scum are four of a drain’s biggest enemies. Do whatever you can to avoid introducing any of these items into a drain. Here’s how:

  • Save cooking grease in an old coffee can or cardboard milk container. Then dispose of it in the trash.

  • Throw coffee grounds away in the garbage or add them to your mulch pile.

  • Use a screen or drain-grate to cover the drain’s opening and minimize problems with hair and soap scum. Stop by your local plumbing-supply store to study the choices appropriate for your particular fixture. Take along a picture of the drain system to better explain your needs. Most filters and screens can be simply laid in place.

Regular cleaning has its merits. To keep drains in your home running freely — and absent of odor — try these methods:

  • Run hot water through the sink after each use. Hot water keeps oils in food products running down the drain, rather than building up on the interior surface of pipes, which can make drains sluggish and lead to clogs.

  • Throw a handful of baking soda into the drain and follow it with hot water. Baking soda is a terrific cleaning agent, and it’s also great for absorbing foul odors and leaving your drain pipes smelling like a rose. Okay, maybe not like a rose, but a lot better than they otherwise would.

  • Pour 1 cup of vinegar down the drain and let it sit for 30 minutes; then chase it down with very hot water. Vinegar is a wonder cleaner. It contains acetic acid, which acts as an excellent organic solvent in removing organic buildup of crud in pipes.

Would just like to say from start to finish JAS Plumbing and Heating was excellent. We had a few teething issues once the job was completed and they came back round, no questions asked and sorted them out. We would definitely recommend!!
