How to Prevent Clogs
You should schedule a hydro jetting service annually to maintain your pipes.
However, you can also minimize blockages by throwing these materials away instead of into your plumbing system:
- Soap scum
- Dental floss
- “Flushable” wipes
The bathroom is where your system is most vulnerable. Use hair catches to catch hair and bar soap before it goes down your drains. Though many wipes are marketed as “flushable,” they often don’t disintegrate fast enough to prevent clogs completely. These flushable wipes can get tangled with dental floss or hair to create a growing blockage.
In the kitchen, throw these items in the trash instead of the garbage disposal:
- Fat & grease
- Stringy vegetables
- Leftover food scraps
It may seem like your sink is indestructible with a garbage disposal, but that’s not the case. Fat and grease solidify at room temperature, so they often build up on pipe walls and stick to materials like bones and leftover food scraps. Anything solid, like vegetables, coffee, and bones, will not break down before causing a blockage.
A-Team Plumbing & Drain is here for you when you need expert hydro jetting in Northford. The best way to prevent blockages is to avoid sending these materials down your drains. However, an annual hydro jetting service can help keep your plumbing system clear of blockages, so you have reliable pipes.
