1. The chemicals found in the cleaners can actually damage your pipes.

The hydrochloric acid and other acidic ingredients in the cleaner can “eat away” at your pipes as it sits in your drain. In fact, older pipes are more susceptible to this kind of erosion. Even if you think your safe with copper pipes, think again! Liquid drain cleaner can damage any pipe material over time.

2. The combination of chemicals in the liquid drain cleaners is bad for you.

Certain chemical combinations found in the cleaners are dangerous to inhale and can be harmful to your skin if you don’t wear gloves or take precautions. A recent health-related article states that the fumes from drain cleaners can sting and irritate your nose and eyes as well! In fact, the fumes can linger long after the chemical was used.

3. It could potentially be a temporary fix.

There are many reasons why a drain could clog. You could have a backed up sewer line, broken pipe, or even something that isn’t dissolvable lodged deep into your drain.
