Should I use a store bought drain cleaner?
The first thing you need to know before working on a clogged drain is that the drain cleaners you see advertised on TV or on the supermarket shelves are made of dangerous chemicals that will eat through rubber gloves, skin, certain kinds of pipe, wood and anything else they touch. If their fumes are inhaled, they can cause damage to the lungs, nose and mouth. If they are eaten, they will kill, even in small amounts. Even when they are used “properly”, they can ruin septic systems, pollute groundwater, and destroy pipes. Check the label, they all have a long list of warnings.
For a more healthy and safe alternative, try a natural drain cleaner, such as Pro-Clean, that is made from natually occuring bacteria that will digest and break down organic material in your pipes and septic system, and won’t hurt your drain pipes, the environment, or YOU.
