On Demand Filtered Water!

It's comes as no surprise that people are increasingly concerned about the quality of their drinking water. Chlorine, dissolved biological material, even heavy metals and e. coli bacteria have been showing up in ordinary drinking water. Even if consuming it creates no apparent acute health problems, a water filter is peace of mind in a box, plus it makes the water taste better.

How Do You Unclog A Drain?

Clogged drains are one of the most common plumbing problems that many households face. To unclog a drain, you can use either a plunger or chemical drain cleaner. We would advise that you try using a plunger first before resorting to a chemical drain cleaner. This is because over the long term, the use of chemical drain cleaners can affect the lifespan of the drain as chemicals can corrode the pipes.

To unclog a drain,

Mix a cup of ammonia with half a bucket of water and pour it into the drain. If you do not have ammonia, you may use a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar instead.

Let the mixture settle for at least 15 minutes.

Place the plunger over the drain hole completely and start pushing the plunger downward using short, quick strokes for about 10 times before pausing.

Repeat this process another 5 times until the drain clears.

Pour some hot water down the drain. This should unclog the drain..
