Worth to know
Chemical drain cleaners can be in solid or liquid form that are readily available through hardware stores, though some (primarily acidic ones) are intended for use by licensed plumbers.1
Alkaline drain openers
Bottles of alkaline drain cleaners containing sodium hydroxide can dissolve greases and hair.
Alkaline drain openers primarily contain sodium hydroxide and some may contain potassium hydroxide. They may appear in liquid or solid form.
Liquid formulations of corrosive alkaline drain cleaners can contain sodium hypochlorite (bleach) and lye (sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide) in concentrations up to 50 percent. Other corrosive mixtures come as two-part cleaners that are mixed as they are poured in the drain opening. Inside the drain the two solutions react to release a gas, and surfactants trap the gas as dense foam. The intent of this foaming action is to coat the inside of the drain pipe to dislodge more of the substances that form the clog.
Solid formulations of corrosive alkaline drain cleaners in the form of sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide granules can provide more concentrated effective ingredients. Some patented, solid-formula cleaners add aluminum turnings that react with the solid hydroxide in water to heat the caustic mixture to a boil.
Alkaline drain openers can dissolve hair (containing proteins) and fats inside pipes via alkaline hydrolysis of amide and ester respectively:
RCONH2(amide or proteins)+ OH? ? NH3 + RCOO?
RCO2R?(ester or fats)+ OH? ? R'OH + RCOO?
detection of water leakage
Causes overcharging of fees for water consumption may be several. One of them is the failure of one of the home appliances. This device can be a washing machine or dishwasher, which in the course of work they have begun to charge too much water. Much more serious reason for the increase in charges for water consumed can be created at home leaking water, the detection can be made possible by visiting plumber. There will always be visible to the household, but it can effectively raise the status of water consumption. They came home a plumber, if none serious failure, check the efficiency to our existing water meter, because a failure would generate receiving excessive water charges.

Many people avoid replacement of hydraulic and maintenance and minor repairs, because they do not have time for it to be organized. Often it seems to us that such work take a long time and cause discomfort, but hardly anyone takes into account how much damage and problems may arise from malfunction or failure of the hydraulic system. Periodic maintenance or minor repairs does not take much time, and if you know exactly where you are located pipes and other parts of the hydraulics, everything runs more smoothly. So let's spend these few hours and invite home to professional, because in this way we will be able to avoid additional high costs and other problems.
