Are Commercial Drain Cleaners Bad For Pipes?

Almost every clogged drain we see has already had Draino or some other over-the-counter treatment that didn’t work. While cleaners can work in some circumstances, we always caution customers to be very careful using them. Some have caustic agents (like lye and hydrochloric acid) that can corrode older pipes and damage newer PVC pipes. Worse, if these products splash into your eyes or come in contact with your skin, you could need more than a plumber’s services. It’s safer for pipes and septic systems if you skip the drain cleaners.

Instead of using commercial drain cleaners, try following these steps to remove your clog:

  • Use a plunger to bring up the clog
  • Run hot (but not boiling) water down the drain for a few minutes
  • Pour half a cup of baking soda into the drain and let it sit for a few minutes
  • Pour in a mixture of 1 cup each of vinegar and hot water and cover with a drain plug for about 10 minutes
  • Remove the plug and flush with hot water

Note: Don’t attempt plunging or using these home remedies if you’ve already tried a commercial drain cleaner.

The solutions above won’t work on clogs caused severe buildup or an object stuck in the drain. In either of these cases, you need to have the drain trap cleaned out or replaced. Whatever is causing your drainage problem, the Provo drain cleaning professionals at American Plumbing Services will get you flowing again.

If the problem appears to be a blockage further down the line, a drain snake service may be necessary. American Plumbing Services provides both traditional drain snaking and hydro-jetting (the new industry standard to clean out drains). This process—also called hydro-scrubbing—uses a very high water pressure hose to dissolve grease, debris, and blockages beyond the drain trap. It’s a similar concept to power washing. At very high pressure, hydro-jets can even eliminate tree roots that have crept into exterior lines.

Hydro-jetting is the most thorough method to clean out sewer lines and pipes. Snaking punches a hole through blockages that may or may not get washed away. It is still a viable option, but hydro-jetting delivers a more effective drain clean. Call American Plumbing Services to evaluate your stubborn clog and recommend the most appropriate treatment option.
