An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure.
The best thing you can do for your drains is control what goes down them.
- Don’t allow anything down the drain besides: tissue, human waste, soap, and water.
- Try to keep food from going down kitchen drains.
- Tie a nylon stocking to the end of the laundry machine exhaust to trap lint.
- Use enzymes in sink drains to naturally dissolve sludge.
- Consider using a pressure washer to clean out the sink drain if it is a continual problem.
