Drano? We Say DraNO! How Caustic Soda (Sodium Hydroxide) Drain Cleaners Damage Your Home’s Plumbing
At My Professional Plumber, we want our customers to know the secrets that aren’t shared on the back of the package, especially when those secrets can lead to long term damage.
Corrosive drain cleaners, like Drano, are widely available and claim to be a good choice for unclogging toilets, tubs, showers, and bathroom/kitchen sinks.
What these corrosive drain cleaners do not share, however, is that they can also “melt” pipes that lead to the garbage disposal, as seen in the photo below. These corrosive cleaners are just a band-aid fix, but there are better alternatives that can provide a long-term solution.
Biosmart is the smarter option for drain cleaning. Biosmart does not damage your home’s plumbing, is fast acting, easy to use, and better for the environment.
When looking at options for a product to clean your drains, My Professional Plumber can highly recommend and provide Biosmart. Call now to make an appointment and get a discount on your next visit! 865-609-6080.
