When your drains are clogged, over-the-counter drain fluid may seem like the most accessible and affordable option, but nothing could be further from the truth. Although many households choose drainage cleaners because they are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased from almost any store, their negative consequences greatly outweigh the benefits. Remember, the cheap fix is rarely the best fix.
One of the main adverse effects of over-the-counter drain cleaners is that they wear out metal pipes and seals that prevent your plumbing from leaking. Drain cleaning fluids are extremely toxic; In addition, if over-the-counter drain fluid is mixed with certain chemicals that are already in the pipe, the result can be toxic for the entire household. Think about what the substance is designed to do: eat away at a block in your pipes. That’s some pretty harsh stuff!
