Drain Cleaning FAQs

Can toilet paper cause a sewer line blockage?

The answer depends on your plumbing system's capabilities and regular maintenance. Modern systems are typically designed to handle thicker toilet paper without issues.

However, older systems with smaller pipe cavities due to buildup may experience clogs when excessive or extra-thick toilet paper is used. 

This also applies to wipes and other hygiene products labeled as "flushable," as they can contribute to blockages, leading to backed-up pipes and overflows.

Is it safe to use chemical drain cleaners to unclog a drain?

In short, it's best to avoid using chemical drain cleaners. These corrosive substances can deteriorate your pipes over time, leading to more damage and frequent repair calls. 

While chemical cleaners may provide a temporary solution, they can leave your pipes in worse condition in the long run. 

For safe and lasting drain solutions, it's always best to contact a professional plumber who can address the issue without compromising the integrity of your plumbing system.

Frequently Asked Drain Cleaning Questions

  • It depends on your system and what it can process. Newer systems often have no issues with disposing of thicker toilet paper. However, older systems that are not regularly maintained and have a smaller pipe cavity (from buildup) will experience clogs from excessive toilet paper or extra-thick toilet paper. This also goes for wipes and other hygiene products marketed as “flushable.” They can cause blockages and lead to backed-up pipes and overflows. 

  • The short answer is no. Chemical drain cleaners often wear down your pipe system leading to more damage and repair calls. These corrosive chemicals can eat away at your pipes and leave them in worse condition. So, don’t be fooled by a quick, cleared system from chemical cleaners. Instead, contact a professional for safe, long-lasting drain solutions.
