How to Deal with a Clogged Drain

What is the first thing you do when a drain clogs in your home? If it’s to reach for a sink plunger, you are on the right track. For some basic clogs, a plunger will clear out the blockage and let the drain return to doing its job again. But if your first instinct is to find a liquid drain cleaner, you need to reconsider. These bottles of caustic chemicals are potentially hazardous for your plumbing, are acidic and toxic, and won’t actually “clean” your drains in the real sense but instead leave behind most of the debris that caused the problem in the first place.

So if that sink plunger won’t reopen your drain, the next step is to contact professional plumbers to clean out the clog. Plumbers use various tools and know the best way to clean clogged drains, such as motorized drain augers and hydro–jetters. These tools will ensure a thoroughly cleansed drain without any damage done to the drainpipe.

How to Maintain Your Clean Drains 

Many things can go wrong with your pipes and drains, so you need to do what you can to keep things working smoothly. Here are a few tips. 

  • Regularly check your drains.
  • You should check your drains regularly to ensure they’re not clogged or leaking and that the water is draining correctly. You should call a plumber immediately if you notice anything that seems out of the ordinary.
  • Before you use a cleaning tool or product, ensure that it is meant for your type of pipe. Also, make sure that you are using the right amount. If you use too much, you risk damaging your pipes. The tool won't do its job if you don’t use it enough. 
  • Avoid pouring cooking grease down the drain. Instead, pour grease into a jar, let it cool, and then throw it in the trash. 
  • Avoid pouring items down the drain. You shouldn’t throw foreign items down the drain, such as paper towels. 
  • If you have a broken pipe, turn off the water to that area and call a plumber.

FAQ:

What do plumbers use to clean pipes?

Various tools are used to clean pipes and break up clogs, from powerful water jets to chemicals and machines. However, a cable machine is one of the most popular tools for cleaning pipes. These machines clean the inside of your pipes, breaking up clogs and clearing any blockages. 

Another popular tool is an augur, a long, rotating cable that clears out clogs in your pipes.

Additionally, many plumbers use special tools to clear clogs in just a few minutes with minimal fuss and waiting time. This is especially important if there’s a clog in a kitchen or bathroom sink, where a clogged drain can quickly cause water buildup.

How do you clean a slow drain?

If you have a slow drain, it is probably clogged with debris such as hair, food scraps, and other items. While this is not a severe problem, it can lead to a clog if it isn’t taken care of promptly. If the drain is slow in one particular area of the house, you can snoop around to see if you can find the source of the problem.

Otherwise, you can call a professional. If you are dealing with a clogged drain, you have a few options. You can try to tackle the problem yourself, call a plumber, or hire a drain cleaning company. Your choice will depend on how bad the problem is and what you prefer.

Professionals You Can Trust

I hired Pro Sewer Repair to replace my sewer line. Their estimate was much more reasonable then Pro Sewer fixed a large break in our sewer line where it joined the city mainline. They handled this large job effectively, cost-efficiently, and were great to work with. Jamie and Rob were awesome to work with on scheduling and responsive to questions, and the team (Jason and James) did a great job with the work. Would use them again and will recommend to friends.
