How To Prevent Clogged AC Drain Lines
At Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing, we’ve seen it all when it comes to air conditioner drain line issues. One common problem you may often encounter is a clogged drain line caused by bacteria, mold or algae buildup. This can lead to expensive repairs and a lot of frustration for homeowners.
But, there’s a simple and effective solution that we recommend to all of our customers: adding Liquid-Plumr® to each sink that your AC drain line attaches to.
You might be wondering how a sink and Liquid-Plumr® can help with your air conditioner‘s drainage issues, but it’s all about the interconnectedness of your plumbing system.
Your air conditioner’s drain line removes condensation that forms inside your unit during the cooling process. That line connects to your home’s plumbing system, including all your sinks, toilets and other plumbing fixtures.
Over time, that condensation can attract bacteria, mold or algae growth, clogging the drain line. This is where Liquid-Plumr® comes in! By pouring this solution down each sink that your AC’s drain line attaches to, you can prevent any growth and buildup in your plumbing system. This helps keep it clear and prevents clogs from forming.
When you use Liquid-Plumr®, be sure to follow the instructions carefully. You’ll want to pour the liquid down the sink, wait the recommended amount of time and then flush hot water down the drain. It’s important to note that you should only use Liquid-Plumr® on sinks connected to your plumbing system, not toilets or other fixtures.
By taking this simple step, you can help prevent costly repairs and keep your air conditioner running smoothly. Don’t wait until you have a clogged drain line — every quarter, add Liquid-Plumr® to every sink that your AC attaches to and enjoy a worry-free summer.
