Chemical Drain Cleaners – This tip isn’t so much about preventative maintenance, but can result in the need for a Toronto plumber rather quickly. A lot of people make the mistake of using very harsh chemical drain cleaners to try to clear pesky drain issues. In doing this, over time, the drain line can get corroded and cause a hole and leak in the pipe, not to mention the strong fumes they give off. If you insist on using liquid cleaners, get one that is “green”, as they are less harsh on your pipes and your lungs. If you are already experiencing drain issues due to overuse of chemical drain cleaners, give us a call! For more tips, join us on Facebook and submit your plumbing or drain question.
