Clogged drains are an issue that many property owners believe that they can fix themselves. It can be as simple as pouring some of store bought liquid down the drain, waiting fifteen minutes, and then celebrating as the clog magically disappears right? Wrong. The store bough liquid drain cleaner does not effectively remove the clog. It merely reduces it to the point that water can pass through the drainpipes allowing blockages quickly grow back to the point where they clog the drain again.
You may end up repeating the process every few weeks in the hopes that one of these times it will remove the clog once and for all. Although the store bought liquid drain cleaner will never actually fix the problem it can be very effective at corroding your pipes. Eventually, this can lead to a major repair, which can cost thousands of dollars, or even a complete replacement that costs even more money.
