“Green” Drain Cleaning Ideas For Homeowners

Go “Green” With Your Drain Cleaning

There’s no doubt that the “green” revolution is shaping the future of our world. The plumbing industry is contantly searching for safer, more eco friendly ways to solve everyday plumbing issues. We all know that using harsh chemical cleaning products can be dangerous and bad for our health. I dare you to read the labels of many of today’s commonly used drain cleaning products, many of which still contain sodium hydroxide. This man-made chemical is both harmful to our families and our planet.

Here just a few of the health concerns associated with these products:

  • Skin and eye irritation
  • Chest pressure
  • Lung irritation
  • Throat soreness
  • Death if swallowed

SewerTV has remained at the forefront when it comes to green drain cleaning in Fullerton. We use environmentally safe products, which are designed to protect both your family and your plumbing. They have natural vegatative microbrial enzymes to do the dirty work. These microbes eat the grease that is clogging your drain pipes. The waste is then turned into water and other enviromentally safe by-products. Once released into your drain pipes, these micro organizms live there and protect your pipes against future grease build up.

Another safe and effective natural remedy for clearing a clogged drain is using a simple combination of baking soda, vinegar, and boiling water.

Here are easy to follow instructions…

1. First, pour a generous amount of baking soda down the drain.

2. Step two, pour a 1/2 cup of vinegar

3. Last, add one full pot of boiling water.

The chemical reaction between the vinegar and baking soda causes the clog to seperate and is then washed safely down the drain by the boiling water. This method however is not the best choice for regular maintenance. Once a month use of am enzyme product willl keep your pipes running smoothly and help prevent costly future repairs.
