The Truth Behind Liquid Drain Cleaners
As we all know, drain clogs are never convenient. And they always seem to happen at the most inopportune times like when you are trying to wash the dishes or take a shower. They happen at night, on the weekend, or when you have a busy schedule. Many people think, who has time to call a San Diego plumber? After all, reaching for a cheap, quick bottle of liquid drain cleaner seems like the perfect solution. But the truth behind these cleaners is far more complicated and potentially dangerous than meets the eye. Unfortunately, plumbing repair that is quick and easy can often mean bigger and more expensive problems in the long run.
While liquid cleaners can free some obstructions, they do not work on all types of clogs and there is no way to know what type you have. Plus, liquid drain cleaners can cause serious problems even if they happen to unclog your drain. They contain highly caustic chemicals, which can cause irritation and possible injury if splashed on skin or in eyes. And since these chemicals are designed to “eat” their way through clogs, they often do not stop there and can actually “eat” their way through your pipes, causing extensive damage.
As a means of avoiding the cost of a San Diego plumber, liquid drain cleaners can wind up costing more in property damage or personal injury. Therefore, if you are in need of a San Diego plumbing repair it is important to contact a reliable and experienced plumber.
