The modern day has seen many technological advances which have simplified life. The “liquid plumber” is a good example. The term “liquid plumber” is used to describe all types of plumbing fluids, even though there’s a specific brand by the same name. There are occasions when even these fluids that seem to be infallible just don’t work. As Viking Plumbing & Drain Services, we deal with clogs and broken pipes of every size. One of the worst things that we have seen is when liquid plumbers are used incorrectly. We have put together this guide to help you save thousands of dollars and our sanity.
A common myth about liquid plumbers claims that they remove clogs. Some clogs can be cleared, but not all. Plumbers and plumbers know that grime is the main cause of most clogs. The most common grimy clogs are a combination of grease and hair. These are easy to handle with liquid plumbers, as they break down the nasty stuff and flush it out. Gradual clogging is a good indicator of these clogs. As time passes, your drain slowly becomes more clogged. It is not safe to use liquid plumbing when your drain suddenly stops.
There are many reasons why these massive clogs occur, but they almost always involve a foreign object. Tree roots, pipe breaks, and large objects are all possible causes of clogs that liquid plumbers cannot remove. The corrosive liquids contained in the bottle are strong but cannot penetrate anything. If you pour liquid plumber in one of these clogs, it can cause serious damage to your pipes. The plumber can corrode pipes if it is left in the pipe. This will reduce their lifespan (especially if the rubber parts are present). If your pipes are weaker, they can leak, which is not good. Be careful when you have a clogged sink and take the right measures.
Clogs in the Toilet
We hope that no one enjoys the act of plunging a toilet. Sometimes it’s necessary. Pouring liquid plumber into your toilet isn’t necessary. It simply doesn’t work. It is not a good idea for at least two reasons. First, it won’t do much more than make the water in your toilets even worse. Second, the only way to get it there is by flushing. You will have septic-water on your floor if you are dealing with a bad clog. This is something we hate to see. Make sure you are familiar with the plunger. It will come in handy when your needs are most urgent.
