1-Liquid Drain Cleaners Are Not Septic Safe
If you have a septic tank, drain cleaners are not good for your septic system. They can destroy and kill the useful bacteria inside the septic tank you need to break down waste. Without these bacteria, your septic tank will fill up quickly. It is never fun to come home and see waste spewing up from the ground from your septic tank.
2-Liquid Drain Cleaners Are Not Effective
Sure, the drain might work great for a short while after dumping a bottle of liquid drain cleaner down it. Eventually, clogs can return because the cleaner only removed a part, not all, of the clog. In addition, the chemicals used in these products do not work with all types of clogs.
3-Liquid Drain Cleaners Are Harmful to the Environment
The containers the drain cleaners come in will still have some liquid and chemicals left inside when you toss them in the trash. The containers tend to end up in landfills where they can leach harmful chemicals into the ground. Eventually, these can get into fresh water supplies and harm wildlife, vegetation, and humans.
