February 19, 2010, Newsletter Issue #331: Avoid clogged drain pipes

Tip of the Week

One good way to avoid clogging the drain pipes is to stop using powdered soaps. These soaps can turn into ´grease´ in your pipes, and eventually cause clogging. Change your washing detergent to liquid, only!! Both in the dishwasher and the clothes washing machine. A few years back, my plumber found lots of grease in my pipes. "But I don´t put any grease down my drains...not at all!!" I told him. This experienced plumber advised me of the problems of using powdered soaps...I changed, and have not had troubles since.
