The Puzzle of a Clogged Drain

drain

Just a quick note from previous experience that I thought I should share…
Last week, while in the shower (try not to close your eyes and shudder), the water level at my feet was reaching a level higher than the norm and also higher than the level it was at just a week ago – almost 2 inches deep!  The perfect drainage that I had before was no longer as free flowing as it should be.  My first thought was that my hair has officially started falling out at an alarming rate OR there were other issues I wasn’t aware of.  The next day at work, I decided to bring home a quart of drain opener in hopes of remedying the problem before it got worse.  Being on a septic system, sometimes I’m leery about using something so aggressive, even though certain issues need this.  As I walked up the stairs, I had a thought – why not try a plunger first?  Back down the stairs I went.  After two pushes with the plunger, the drain was back to be free flowing with zero resistance.  It had worked and my septic system got a reprieve!  Regardless of what was clogging the drain, it’s nice to know there are options for a great outcome.  Sometimes a great product is needed…and sometimes just the right tool.
