How to clear a blocked drain?

Blocked drains can occur at anytime, anywhere. Blocked drains are a very common plumbing issue that you can find in Hills District. Blocked drains are caused by an object, that might not belong inside your pipes, being stuck inside of your pipes and preventing water or sewage, which are the main users of your pipes, from coming through. This issue should be dealt with immediately before any further damage can occur. If this issue is left alone, without any countermeasure steps, this will damage your pipes and even cause pipe burst. In turn, it might potentially harm your property. It is best to come up with an immediate response when it comes to blocked drains. 

There are many ways to treat a blocked drain. On the TV, you can see many commercials that promotes several different drain cleaning product that boasts today’s technological advancements. However, unfortunately, these products are often advertised in an utterly unrealistic manner that causes a lot of misconceptions towards the product itself. These so called “chemical plumbers” might be taken in consideration as it can clear several objects that might block your drains. However, they are not the most effective way to unblock drains. In fact, they cannot clear larger objects that is stuck inside the drain. Furthermore, these products can often prove costly and can potentially harm your pipes. The chemicals inside these products are very harmful to PVC pipes. It is best to avoid using these products and look for other more reliable solutions for unblocking drains. 

If you’re feeling confident about yourself, you can take the task up for yourself and try some DIY methods. Below is a list of some DIY methods that is available for you to try at your home:

  1. Using a plunger is probably the most traditional available method there is. Although it might look a tad bit old-fashioned, but it is simple and workable; once you get the hang of it, of course. 
  2. Dumping hot water on your pipes is a common method that you can find in many websites when you’re searching for “ways to unblock drains”. However, you should be cautious of the potential damage it might cause to your pipes. You should definitely not use this method if you have PVC pipes.
  3. A mixture of baking soda and vinegar is another way to unblock drains. Just dump it in your drains and voila! This is less harmful than several drain cleaning products, but you should still be cautious. 
  4. Removing the u-bend of the sink and dealing with the blockage directly is also another method you can do yourself. This can be done by removing the u-shaped bend that is right beneath your sink.
