Some of us usually drain the sewage from the kitchen directly with the water pipes after cooking. Years of food waste and debris have caused the water pipes to be clogged, but do you know? Not only food waste and other foreign objects, grease can also cause blockage of water pipes. Before preventing blockage and dealing with kitchen water pipes, let's first understand the cause of blockage.
In addition to kitchen waste, tableware... and other foreign objects, washing used tableware can also cause blockage. This is because grease and vegetable dregs are easy to deposit on the inner wall and solidify when passing through the bend of the water pipe, causing blockage; if not regularly maintained , the water pipe will easily have a sudden "stroke" due to a slightly larger foreign object blocking the drain. If you want to avoid blocked water pipes, or need to deal with blocked water pipes, there are several methods for your reference, and the materials are easy to obtain so that you can try it at home.
1. Baking soda and vinegar
First pour about 200g of baking soda into the water pipe. Pour an appropriate amount of high-concentration vinegar or 100g of citric acid to heat the water solution. Finally, remember to cover the lid or cover the hole with a toilet suction. At this time, the water pipe will start to bubble. This is a normal reaction when acid meets alkali. , after which sticky things such as grease in the pipe can be removed.
2. Alkaline tablets
Do not add water directly to strong alkali, pour water into the sink first, and then add alkali tablets as appropriate. Be sure to wear gloves when operating; the lower pipeline must be a relatively thick and hard pipe to avoid corrosion.
3. Water pipe agent (dragging agent)
When using, be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle; wait 30 minutes after pouring the potion into the drain, and then pour a basin of hot water to remove all grease residues.
It is best not to use the water pipe if there is water accumulated, because if the liquid medicine is not rinsed off, the residue in the water pipe will solidify and cause more serious blockage. The lower pipeline must be a thicker, harder pipe to avoid corrosion.
4. Iron wire
Take an iron wire that is soft enough and bendable, such as a clothes hanger, use needle-nose pliers to bend 90 degrees at the end, turn a small circle at a distance of 3cm, bend the other end 90 degrees as a handle, and insert it The drain hole turns around and pulls out hairs and dirt.
