There are several different ways that Aldershot Drains can be cleaned out. However, the inconvenience until they can be cleaned then can be very stressful and irritating. Fortunately, you can take some simple precautions that will help you avoid a blocked drain and all the hassle that goes with it.
Some Tips To Avoid Getting A Blocked Drain:
Try this: instead of using chemical products, use a mixture of a quarter cup of baking soda mixed with 50 ml vinegar, which is then added to boiling water. This solution used regularly will prevent your drain pipes from getting clogged up.
Never pour greasy or fatty liquids down the drain, as this may not flow very easily through the drain pipe, causing blockages. The fat gets encrusted onto the sides, and over time narrowing down the width of the pipe.
Another cause of blocked Aldershot drain pipes is hair. Make sure you clean out the excessive hair from the plugholes in bathrooms to avoid blockage.
Make sure you regularly clean out the sinks, toilets and baths with disinfectant to avoid dirt and hair build-up.
This point is fairly obvious, but most plumbers are called for help because the drain pipe is clogged with a large object that should not be there. This can be caused by accidentally flushing a toy, tennis ball etc. Make sure such objects are not placed too close to the toilet.
In addition, toilet freshener spray cans also sometimes get accidentally flushed, so be careful.
Try to avoid using too much detergent, as this can result in a build up of the detergent on the pipes’ inner walls reducing the flow of water.
Lift the drainage covers at regular intervals to check that the water is flowing freely.
Never flush sanitary napkins or nappies down the toilet, as they will get clogged.
Make sure there is no way for leaves and other garden foliage and debris to get trapped and then block the drain pipes.
Tree roots that grow into the pipes are another potential risk factor, as this is something you don’t have any real control over. Fortunately, there is now cutting edge technology available like the Sanafoam Vaporooter and electric eels, which can clear your sewer and drain pipes of these nuisance live roots.
The Vaporooter uses a herbicide, which is specially designed to kill the roots inside but does not get absorbed by the plant, thus not affecting the plants and shrubs which are above the ground.
As you can see from the above, some preparatiio, care and common sense may mean that you don’t have to call the plumber out.
