One of the most often cause of blocked drains specifically in sink because of the oil and fat that would be poured down in the pipe. These would get stuck in the pipe and would lead to creating a very unpleasant smell. Other causes of blockages in pipes are tissues and wipes in the toilet. And if you think that you could simply flush them out then you are highly mistaken. It may not be as complicated as boiler repairs, but you would need information and knowledge about it to fix them effectively and efficiently. But if the clogs are soft and loose enough, just flushing them out will do the job.
One tool you can use to avoid blocked drains is a free fat trap. This is used to prevent fact from blocking your sinks and sewers. Simply put the container in the sink and it will filter the fat whenever you wash the dishes and when fat can possibly block your drains in the sink.
One way you could do to avoid blocking your drains is to not flush everything down the drain. What you could do is to prepare a bin beside your sink and your toilet. With this, you wouldn’t need to throw the trash down the drain if you are too lazy to go out and find a bin where you can throw them. Make sure to follow this- never flush anything besides human waste down the drain.
Study shows that every year, 55, 000 blocked drains are recorded because a lot of waste are flushed down the drain. What people should know is that however much commercials and ads tell you that it is okay and safe to flush wet wipes and toilet paper, it is not okay. It will always be better to avoid this as much as you can so that you won’t have any problem when it comes to clogging your drains whether it be the sink or the toilet. Though some say that these products can dissolve in the water, it still takes a lot of time for them to do so. And before they even dissolve, these could block your drains.
