Your home has many drains and any one of them could develop a clog:
Bathroom sink: The sinks in your bathroom are used every day by members of your family to brush their teeth and get ready for their day. This means that several people are using the sink to rinse toothpaste, health and beauty products, and soap, which can all lead to an eventual clog.
Toilet: While you might not think of your toilet as a drain, it performs exactly the same way and, more importantly, it can easily become clogged. When paper products that are not intended for flushing are sent down the toilet drain it can easily overwhelm your plumbing and cause the toilet to clog and overflow.
Bathtub and Shower: The drains in your shower and bathtub will most likely become clogged because of a mixture of hair and shampoo residue. When hair is rinsed down the drain it will inevitably become stuck in the pipe, and when shampoo is rinsed down the drain it will mix with the hair and sit in the pipe to dry. Once this mixture is hardened it creates a material that is much like plaster and will clog the drain.
Kitchen: Rinsing things like starchy or stringy vegetables and fruits down the kitchen sink drain can quickly lead to a clog. Mango, squash innards, and potato peels will get caught in the pipes and, when mixed with water, soap, and grease and left to harden they will transform into a glob of material that will quickly clog the drain.
There are many things that you and your family can do to reduce the chances of a drain clog ruining your day. For instance, in the bathroom you can install drain covers in the sink, shower, and bathtub that are meant to catch hair but, still let water pass through. Also, you can make sure that everyone know what can and can’t be flushed down the toilet.
In the kitchen you can make a list of food items that should not be put into the garbage disposal or rinsed down the drain. The list can be kept on the refrigerator so that everyone in your home is aware and mindful.
Unfortunately, no matter how much prevention you practice it is inevitable that at least one drain in your home will succumb to a clog at one point. Your drains are used several times through the day and normal wear and tear includes clogs from time to time.
