Plumbing repairs are usually the most dreaded of all home repairs, probably because they’re so often preceded by noxious odors and substances. The best way to avoid the pain and sorrow of replacing your sewer line—to name just one example—is to take excellent care of your pipes. Because you can see so little of your pipes, though, our advice concerns the part of your plumbing that’s easily viewed: your drains.
1. Inspect your drains.
The best way to take care of your pipes is to make sure that they’re as free of debris as possible: To that end, you’re going to have to inspect your drains. You probably won’t be able to see very far down the pipe, but you usually don’t have to; as long as you visually check the area nearest the drain for material, you’ll be fine.
2. Trap your drains.
Cleaning out clogs is no fun; being forced to call in a plumber because a simple clog has morphed into something worse is even less fun. To avoid both scenarios, you need to make sure that your drains are well-guarded so that your pipes remain well-protected. Buy a guard for every shower, and find one for the kitchen sink, too: They look like tiny spaghetti strainers and will catch food while you’re doing the dishes.
3. Don’t poison your drains.
Many people are under the mistaken impression that every clog can be cured with enough chemical drain cleaner. Try to avoid those cleaners as much as possible; either they’re ineffective and a waste of money , or they’re too effective and will damage your pipes.
4. Clean your drains.
You should be cleaning your kitchen drain at least once a week, your bathroom drains every time you clean your shower (about once a week, we hope), and your basement drains roughly every three months. As we said before, don’t use chemical drain cleaners. Instead, manually remove whatever you can and then run a combination of hot water, vinegar, and baking soda down the drain.
