Bob Cole's Tips
- Using chemical drain cleaners like Drano is not advisable because they can settle
in your pipes and cause corrosion. They may also damage certain surfaces or cause chemical
burns if splashed on the skin. Never, ever combine two different types of drain cleaners—
the result may be toxic chlorine gas.
- When removing the P-trap, make sure you use the right tool for the job. Heavy wrenches may
damage the plastic nuts found on PVC plumbing.
