The Damage of Drain Clearing Products

This is a good example of why drain cleaning products are not a good solution for long term use of cleaning clogs from your pipes. If you have a slow moving drain, it’s clogged – it’s that simple. You’ll need to remove the blockage properly with a ┬ásnaking device or water jet. Chasles Plumbing is equipped with both tools to better serve our customers.

If you have a slow moving drain, call Chasles Plumbing Professionals before your problems get worse.
