Drawback of Using These Chemicals: Pipe Erosion Over Time
We know what you’re thinking: the liquid drain cleaners you buy at the store are a great way to deal with a clog quickly. While we do understand their convenience, we still caution against them because of the harm they can do to your pipes over time.
In fact, despite what you may have heard to the contrary, chemicals like Liquid Plumber and Drano actually do more harm than good.
Why The Twin Plumbers Caution Against Drain Cleaning Chemicals
- They are made up of corrosive substances that will erode your pipes over time. The more you use them, the faster your pipes will degrade.
- If you continue to use inexpensive harmful drain chemicals because you think it’s more cost-efficient, you are in for an unpleasant surprise. Because they will erode your pipes, you could damage them to the point of replacement. And, trust us, replacement is more expensive than a regular drain cleaning service call, so you will actually end up paying more for less.
- Because drain cleaning chemicals are a short-term solution for a long-term problem, you are risking the integrity of your pipes for nothing.
- Our cabling and water jetting services are much more effective than any type of results you’ll see from a chemical cleaner. They might wash away clogs consisting of grease or hair, but they will do nothing for the tougher, more involved blockages.
