Why We Urge Homeowners to Stay Away From Chemicals
Let’s cover the basics. Before we steer you in the right direction, it’s important that we mention why chemical drain cleaners can be so awful. Here are a few clear reasons to never use a bottled chemical drain cleaner again.
- They’re caustic and harmful to the environment. These chemicals are extremely potent, either very acidic or basic, and they’ll wreak havoc on the environment and ecosystem near your home.
- They eat away at your pipe lining. Your pipe lining is important to prevent leaks and keep things running smoothly to the sewer or septic system. Chemicals can eat away at the pipe lining of your plumbing system and contribute to leaks and other issues.
- They can be harmful to your personal health. Being in close contact with these chemicals can cause severe health problems like rashes, chemical burns, and irritations of the eyes, nose, throat, and mouth.
- They barely even work. These chemicals will only work sometimes. If a drain clog is too large or is made up of dense materials, the chemicals won’t work at all.
The Chemical Reaction
How do chemical drain cleaners actually work? Well, they’re extremely powerful acidic or basic chemicals that chemically react with all the materials in your pipes, including the pipe lining. They’re supposed to eat away at the clog and, through a chemical reaction, dissolve it so it passes into the sewer. However, they usually don’t get the job done and will most likely dissolve your pipe’s lining.
