Safe Yourself the Hassle of a Clogged DrainIt’s early in the morning and you go to brush your teeth, only to find that there is still a pool of water left in your bathroom sink from the night before. Or, you try to do dishes only to end up with a clogged drain that’s making it difficult to get your dishes all the way clean. If you’ve ever been in one of these situations, you probably know that clogged drains are a pain. To avoid the hassle of a clogged drain:

  • Never dump cooking grease down your kitchen sink. Instead, save it in an old can or container until it hardens and then throw it in the trash.
  • Put coffee grounds into your garbage can or add them to your mulch pile—never put them down the sink drain or flush them down the toilet.
  • If you have a problem with hair getting down into your bathroom sink drain or shower, put a sink grate over it.
  • Let hot water run down your drain for a minute following every use.

However, even with the most meticulous care, you will probably run into a clogged drain at some point during your career as a homeowner. To get a mildly clogged drain back in working order, try throwing some baking soda down the drain and then following it with a pot of boiling water.

If this doesn’t get rid of the problem, you may have a serious clog on your hands. Call your septic company to find out if the reason your drains aren’t draining has something to do with a septic system issue.
