Plumbing Techniques to Unclog a Drain your Niles, IL home
- Contrary to what you may have heard, liquid chemicals can carry the potential of eroding and damaging your pipes, depending on the type you use. It may been increasingly dangerous when you mix over-the-counter supplies. Try to avoid these clearing agents.
- Plungers are extremely helpful & effective in safely clearing minor single-pipe clogs. A professional’s tip is to pour boiling water down the drain and let it sit to cool prior to plunging the clogged drain. Boiling water helps to dissolve stubborn clogs, but be cautious as boiling water can cause serious burns. For proper plunger use, secure it by creating a seal directly over the drain; push down on the plunger and then allow it to pop back up, naturally. Try this several times before moving to another attempt.
- Consider purchasing a drain snake, also called a drain auger, from your local hardware store. These are some of the most cost effective tools in help to remove stubborn clogs from drains. A snake is long flexible cable with a handle on the end, available in manual or motorized models. You can try clearing the clog by sticking a snake directly into the drain itself. Or, if that doesn’t work, it may also be helpful to put the snake directly into the pipes under the sink. However, if this becomes troublesome, we recommend just contacting Rocket Plumbing prior to opening the pipes to avoid damage to your plumbing.
