Products you shouldn’t put down your drain

There are a few things you may be putting down your drain that you shouldn’t be. Putting these things down your drain can lead to a clog in your drain or pipes and can severely damage your drain and pipes:

  • Paint: Pouring paint down your drain could lead to paint getting into your water supply and making it not safe to drink or use. 
  • Cooking oil: Cooking oil can get stuck to the side of your drain when it’s poured down. The oil then catches any debris that goes down the drain and can cause a clog. 
  • Drano: Drano is a cleaning product that is used to clean your drain; however, it can be extremely damaging. Using Drano to clean your drain can lead to breaking your PVC pipes due to how much pressure and stress it puts on your drain and pipes.
