Strainer For All Your Drains

This Sparked Me!

A plumber advised us to ensure there's a strainer in all our sinks and showers. You may not notice how much hair, etc. flows down the drain when you shower or shave, but your pipes sure do. We haven't had a clogged drain since we did this 10 years ago.

    I use a mesh strainer that I picked up at the dollar store. I was so surprised all the tiny particles it stops from going down.

    I've done this for years. I have old plumbing and it saves on maintenance, that is for sure!
