Keep your plumbing clog free – It’s easier to keep your plumbing clog free than to unclog it. Here are a few ways to keep it clog free:
- Don’t put oil down your drain: Never pour used cooking oil down your kitchen sink or any oil down your sink. That will create a clog very quickly.
- Don’t misuse your toilet: Your toilet is not a garbage can, so don’t use it that way. Keep all of your garbage in your garbage and use your toilet the way nature intended it. Things like dental floss, kitty litter, paper towels, and cotton balls clog your toilet. You’ll be glad that you threw it in the garbage when you find out how costly it is to unclog a toilet.
- Maintain your drains – Once a week pour a cup of white vinegar and half a cup of baking soda down all of your drains. This includes your kitchen sink, bathroom sink, and your shower drain. This will take less than 20 minutes, but if you do it once a week your drains will be free of most clogs.
As you can see it doesn’t take a lot hard work to keep your plumbing free of clogs and this is important if you don’t want to spend your free time doing plumbing repairs. The key here is to be consistent. You have to use these tips on a regular basis, no exceptions. If you put oil down your sink sometimes, and use your toilet like a garbage can half of the time, and only clean your drains twice a week then you’re bound to have a clogged sink or toilet to repair. Do yourself a favor and start using these tips today.
