Store-Bought Cleaners Are Not the Answer

Professionally licensed plumbers will always tell homeowners not to fix drain clogs using liquid plumbing solutions. What most plumbers won’t do is 1. Tell you why and 2. Provide you with an alternative solution.

Over-the-Counter Liquid Drain Clog Solutions Are Not Solutions

Our team at 3 Mountains Plumbing will also tell you that over-the-counter liquid solutions are the wrong choice, but we offer several affordable alternatives. First, why exactly are liquid drain clog solutions purchased at your local hardware or grocery store bad? Well, the truth is that they do work, but only temporarily. These so-called solutions are unfortunately detrimental to the longevity of your drain pipes plus they tend to cause a host of other problems. Over-the-counter liquid drain solutions:

  • Contain acidic product that deteriorates drain pipes over time
  • Only temporarily remove drain clogs, they will return
  • Are harmful to skin
  • Are not always effective
  • Often just push the clog further down the pipe making it more difficult to reach later
