Keep The Clogs Out Of Your Kitchen Sinks

Keep The Clogs Out Of Your Kitchen Sinks

One day last week my kitchen sink got clogged, while frustrating I didn't think it​ was going to​ be a​ big deal.

I just grabbed the Liquid Plumber I had bought for just such an​ occasion, and then presto. Nothing.

So we head off to​ Wal-Mart, my daughter in​ her jammies since she was just about to​ go to​ bed. I found the Draino, my daughter suggested to​ get two just in​ case and after the Liquid Plumber hadn't worked I though maybe I better.

Tried it​ and it​ didn't work, so then I decided to​ let it​ really have some time to​ work over night. Still in​ the morning a​ clog.

So I call a​ plumber and he had the clog fixed in​ no time, and he gave me a​ bit of​ advice that I am going to​ be using now.

He told me once a​ week to​ fill up both my sinks and then let the water out on both at​ the same time. He said the cyclonic action of​ the water would continue all the way through my pipes and keep me from having a​ clog.

He said as​ long as​ you don't put a​ lot of​ grease down your drain you should never have a​ clog.

So I thought I would share this tip with all of​ you. I figure it​ doesn't cost anything and takes less than 5 minutes so why not.

Another tip someone else had given me that I forgot to​ ask the plumber about is​ to​ take a​ can of​ salt every month and flush it​ down your toilet. They told me it​ would keep tree roots from growing toward your pipes. So since I have trees in​ my backyard I salt the toilet once a​ month too.
