Tip 1: Watch what soaps you use when using your sinks, bathrooms, or other drainage areas.
If you’re using very oily or bubbly soaps, they could be causing clogs or clumps in your bathrooms or kitchen. It may seem silly, but even small things like changing soaps could help. Also, avoid chemicals in your soaps- inspect your “ingredients” label and compare it to what other natural soaps are made of. If you can find comfortably-budgeted alternatives, go for it.
Tip 2: Don’t put food down your kitchen sink drain unless you have a garbage disposal.
If you don’t have a garbage disposal, invest in a simple mesh drainer. It’ll help you a ton. Any fats or acids going down your sink can be a huge risk for a big clog, which could cause a break or leak inside your pipes. Avoid that by either getting a mesh drainer or getting a garbage disposal.
Tip 3: Get a hair-catcher in your bathrooms.
There are several options: most popularly, the TubShroom. It’s a small, harmless tool that goes where your tub plug goes. It catches all hairs, including animal hair, and you can take off the hairs with a paper towel, baby wipes, sanitary wipes, etc. It keeps hairs from being clogged in your bathrooms, which is a huge help!
Tip 4: Try to wash any pets outside, if applicable.
If you have a very large animal, and you want to bathe him or her inside, please try to avoid it. Their hair- even with a TubShroom- will most likely clog your drains, which can cause you huge problems.
