5 Items That Could Cause Stubborn Clogs

A sink
Whether you own or rent your home, you never want to deal with stubborn clogs, especially ones that cause water to back up into your bathtubs. Unfortunately, some stubborn clogs can happen, especially when the wrong items go down the drains.

If you've got stubborn clogs that cause water to come up in your bathtubs, take a close look at what you put into your drains. Here are five items that can cause some serious clogs.

1. Feminine Hygiene Products

People debate about whether feminine hygiene products should be flushed down the drains — tampons to be specific. Some people would argue that the toilet is the only hygienic place to deposit used tampons. Unfortunately, that's not actually the case. In fact, your toilet is the last place where used tampons belong. Tampons simply don't break down the way that human waste and toilet paper does.

When you flush tampons down the toilet, one of two things can happen. They can make their way through to the waste water reclamation center, where they contaminate the process. Or, they can get stuck in your pipes where they expand with the additional liquid and cause a serious clog. The best way to avoid the problem is to dispose of used tampons in a feminine disposal container or trashcan.

2. Small Toys

If you have small children, chances are good that a few toys will go down the drain, especially items like Lego pieces, doll shoes, and toy cars. Occasionally, children will even flush things like car keys and cell phones. Unfortunately, all those items can cause stubborn clogs to develop, especially if they get trapped past the P-trap.

Once those small items get trapped inside the drains, toilet paper and human waste back up at the clog. Unfortunately, once enough of a clog exists, the only place to go is back up through the drains. When that happens, you'll probably have raw sewage in your bathtub. One way to prevent clogs that toys create is to attach a child lock to your toilet seat.

3. Potato Peels

If you’ve sent your potato peels through the garbage disposal, you could be one peel away from a serious clog. Potato peels may seem innocent enough, but they contain enough starch to create a paste that will catch everything else that you send through the drains.

Once you've got that pasty, potato peel clog, you'll need a plumber to clean your drains. The best way to discard your potato peels is toss them in the trash. You can also use the peels to start your own compost heap.

4. Long Hair

If you or a family member has long hair, your drains are ticking time bombs for clogs. Short hair flows right through the drains with the water. However, long hair gets stuck inside the drains, especially when the drains have body oils or bath oil residue.

One way to stop clogs that long hair causes is to place hair traps inside all your bathroom sink and tub drains. You should also use a hair removal tool to clean your drains at least once a week.

5. Coconut Oil

If coconut oil is part of your daily health and beauty routine, you need to take steps to protect your drains. Over time, coconut oil will thicken inside your drains, especially if you don't flush them with hot water after each use.

Don't take chances with your residential drains. If you’ve had frequent clogs, the culprit could be on the list of items provided above. Contact us at Moody Plumbing, Inc. We'll come out and take care of all your stubborn clogs.
