How do natural enzyme drain cleaners work?

Natural enzymes are microscopic organisms that eat organic waste.  Organic waste consists of hair and skin cells in sinks and showers and other organic waste from toilets.  Natural enzymes reproduce quickly leaving behind a bi-product of bacteria that will continuously breakdown and eat organic matter.
Natural enzymes were initially used for septic tanks. When the enzymes were administered monthly through toilet plumbing, enzymes significantly helped reduce the amount of organic waste build up within the septic tank. This helped reduce the cost of having a septic tank service performed more frequently.
Helpful tip:
If a household has a septic tank, avoid:
• Pouring grease down garbage disposals
• Feminine products down toilets
• Harsh corrosive liquid chemicals down sinks.
• Anything that won’t breakdown naturally over time.
Enzymes are now available for all types of plumbing needs, and if properly maintained, enzymes will help keep the pipes free and clear of clog buildup when used on a regular basis.
Enzymes are not as effective to combat a clog as quickly as liquid chemicals are.  Where enzymes shine is on maintaining a clear drain, avoiding clogs all together. One essential benefit of natural enzymes is the extreme low risk of corroding the interior of the plumbing.
Although enzymes are all natural, proper care should be used when administering the monthly dose. Irritation, allergic reactions and other serious side effects can occur is misused. If you have any questions regarding the care of your plumbing using natural enzymes, give Andy’s Pipe Dream a call, we are here to help.

Winter is right around the corner!

This is a good time to evaluate the condition of your home's outdoor hydrants/faucets. If they are older or leaking consider replacing them before Winter's freeze warnings hit.

As you may already know, with older outdoor hydrants/faucets especially, it’s extremely important to remember to detach your garden hoses, close inside shut-off valves and drain your outdoor fixtures before temperatures plunge.

Water expands when it freezes, frozen hydrants/faucets cause burst pipes. Ice takes up nearly 10% more space than liquid water. If a pipe is full of water in its liquid state, there is no room for expansion, which means if the temp drops low enough for the water to freeze over, something has got to give! And it’s usually the pipe, the valves, the joints or maybe all three.

Prepare for Winter & the holidays in advance, avoid damage to your home due to burst outdoor hydrant/faucet pipes! For more information on replacing outdoor hydrants/faucets contact Andy's Pipe Dream. We provide FREE estimates and we install only the best freeze-proof, anti-siphon, anti-rupture outdoor hydrant/faucet products. That means worry free outdoor hydrants/faucets...no more seasonal maintenance!
