Blocked Sinks and Drain Pipes

Blocked sinks or drains are one of the most common plumbing problems in most households and commercial kitchens.

If you decide to have a go at clearing your blocked sink or drain yourself, a plunger or a “snake” may seem like a quick and easy solution to your problem. However, sometimes the blockage may be deep within your drainage system.

In the event that a plunger or “snake” fails to address your drainage problem, going to a nearby store and buying a chemical drain cleaner (or drain opener) can seem quite tempting. However, chemical drain openers are largely made up of highly toxic and dangerous chemicals that are known to damage both the environment and your plumbing system.

At Kalamunda Plumbing, we recommend Ecocare’s range of non-toxic chemical-free and environmentally healthy products as an alternative for cleaning household sinks and drains, and treating septic tanks, leach drains, and grease traps.

The Harmful Effects of Chemical Drain Cleaners

It can be very tempting for drain plumbers and homeowners to use chemical drain cleaners (or “drain openers” as they are sometimes called) as a “quick fix” solution to a blocked sink or drain. However, chemical drain cleaners are largely made up of highly toxic and dangerous chemicals.

A chemical drain cleaner may clear a clogged pipe quickly, however the active ingredient in conventional drain cleaners includes the likes of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda or lye) or sulphuric acid.

These man-made chemicals are used for their dissolvent and corrosive properties and can also burn through your clothes and skin, and aggravate nose, throat, and respiratory airways, so contact is best avoided. They should be kept well out of the reach of children.

For those who would rather avoid such toxic chemicals entirely, safer alternatives do exist.

Chemical-free drain cleaners are an eco friendly and safe alternative. The only downside is that they are not as quick-acting as chemical drain cleaners, because they are free of aggressive and harmful toxic chemicals. But the upside is that they are biodegradable and therefore kind to the environment and to septic systems.

Knowing that regular chemical drain cleaners are corrosive to your drains and harmful to the function of your septic system, Kalamunda Plumbing recommends using a safe and efficient environmentally friendly chemical-free drain cleaner to help in maintaining the free-flowing effects of your drain-pipe system in your Perth Hills and Eastern Suburbs property.

Notwithstanding, chemical-free drain cleaners won’t clear drains that are choked with fibrous tree roots.
This would be a job for a professional Drain Cleaning Company such as Kalamunda Plumbing.

Septic Smart Household Cleaning Products

One of the most common causes of odours, blockages and wastewater system failure is the use of conventional, caustic cleaning products. These harsh cleaning chemicals enter wastewater systems and will kill the beneficial bacteria that are necessary for the breakdown of organic waste products in septic systems.

The Ecoshield cleaning product range is chemical free and 100% septic safe. It contains biological stimulants that will help restore the optimal biological conditions within your system each time they’re used and will help protect your system and keep your home and family safe. And best of all, it is all Australian made and owned.

Kitchen Clear – For Blocked Kitchen Drains

If you are experiencing slow drainage, or foul odour from your kitchen sink drain, it is most likely due to oils, fats, and grease that have built up inside your drainpipe. Our Drain Cleaning Techs recommend using Ecocare Kitchen Clear environmentally friendly drain cleaner to dissolve those odour-causing fats from your drains and to get them flowing freely again. It can also be used as a regular “preventative” to keep your drains odour free and flowing freely.

All Clear for Blocked Toilet, Bathroom and Laundry Drains

If you’ve got a blockage in a bathroom or laundry drain, Ecocare All Clear is a powerful drain cleaner that will dissolve your blockage and restore drainage in days without the need for a plumber. A non-caustic blend of naturally derived grease dispersants and odour suppressants, Ecocare All Clear will restore your drains to the optimal condition.

However, to unblock your kitchen drains please use Ecocare Kitchen Clear.

Activator – Restore & Maintain Your Septic System

Ecocare Activator is a scientifically developed blend of natural ingredients, grease dispersants and biological stimulants that kills odours on contact, cuts through grime, breaks down fat and grease, and restores and maintains a healthy bacterial balance in your septic system.

Unlike most additives, Ecocare Activator does not contain any bacteria or enzymes. Instead, it provides micro and macro nutrients that promote the growth of healthy bacteria that produce the enzymes needed for organic waste breakdown. Creating the best conditions for these processes to take place provides a longer-term benefit than just adding bacteria or enzymes.

Eliminate the leading cause of septic issues and give your system a boost every time you clean.
