Prevent Bathtub Drains from Clogging

Slow or clogged drains are a frustration nearly every homeowner is familiar with. Fortunately, there are simple ways to prevent this common plumbing problem. Keep your drains clear with these simple maintenance and prevention tips!

Prevention Tips:

  • Drain Covers – Keep hair from clogging up your drain with a drain cover. These covers can keep your hair (or even your pet’s hair) from clogging your drain. They are a practical, affordable solution that can prevent costly plumbing problems.
  • Clog Removers – Certain chemical drain cleaners are effective at breaking up stubborn clogs. However, the best way to make sure that your drain is clear is to leave it to the professionals!
  • Be Conscious – Older homes are more prone to clogged drains. Be careful when emptying mop buckets, waste water and other liquids that are full of dust, dirt and lint down the drain. Try emptying these liquids outside or using a mesh screen to trap debris instead.
