What You Can and Can’t Flush Down Your Drains

If you’re unsure whether or not to throw something in the sink or down the shower drain, a good rule of thumb is just to throw it in the trash. For example, most bathroom products, such as face pads, ear swabs, and makeup removal wipes, should be thrown in the garbage rather than flushed down the toilet. You should also avoid putting the following products down your drains:

  • Condoms
  • Kitty litter
  • Fats, oils, & grease
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Hair
  • Coffee grounds
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Paper towels
  • Paint
  • Medications
  • Fruit pits
  • Eggshells
  • Produce stickers
  • Household cleaning products

How Do You Remove Buildup from Drain Pipes?

Most drains get clogged with a combination of soap, fats, and hair, especially bathroom drains. Luckily, soap and fats melt quickly, meaning they can be flushed down the drain with boiling water. Hot water is usually the first-step solution, however. If you notice your drains are slowing down, but not wholly clogged, now would be a good time to try the hot water solution. Otherwise, your best bet is to try a clothes hanger or drain snake to clear the problem. Either of these tools can be lowered into your drain, where you can use them to break up the clog and, in some cases, pull out any removable culprit (e.g., hairball).

If a drain snake doesn’t work, or you’re not comfortable clearing the clog yourself, give our plumbers in Manchester a call. Our team has the training needed to clean your plumbing system swiftly and efficiently. Not only do we have high-quality drain snakes, but we also use HydroScrub® – Jetting technology to clear clogs, a proprietary high-pressure water tool used to break up stubborn clogs without damaging your plumbing.

How Much Does It Cost to Clear a Drain?

Clearing a drain will cost you anywhere from $85 to $800, depending on the location and severity of the clog. The more complicated the cleaning will be, the longer it will take, and the more expensive it is to clear. For example, removing a clog in a sink is much simpler than clearing a clog in a toilet or clearing the main sewer line. Main sewer line clogs tend to be the most expensive because they might involve digging up your yard if tree roots are clogging your sewer line.

The only way to know for sure how much you’re going to pay for your drain-clearing service is to request an estimate. Our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater New Hampshire offers flat-rate fees for our services, so you’ll know what your bill will be before we even begin.
