Call For a Licensed Plumber: (317) 859-9999
Deep down in the turning pipes of your dark crawl space lays a ball of your own hair. Clogging the pipe that leads to the sewer. Leaving you with a pool of water in your sink. Clogs can be anything from hair to soap scum and calls come into plumbers daily about drain clogs because it can happen so frequent.
 
Luckily, there are a couple of techniques you can try to fix the problem. Though some of these tips seem easy, always remember that you can also always call a licensed plumber! Lets take a look:
 

Ways to Clear a Clogged Drain

1. Use a Plunger for Clogged Drain

  • Plungers can be the easiest and most common way to unclogged your drain. Make sure the plunger is sanitary and that you have some water in the sink. After that, work away on the drain.
  • Though this is a very known way to unclog pipes. If the clog itself is too deep, you may not be able to get it this way.

2. Boiling Water

  • Do exactly what this says! Take a bowl or whatever is easiest for you to carry and boil the water to 212 degrees fahrenheit. Pour the water into your clogged drain and  see if the clog disintegrated. If it did-good job!
  • From a safety standpoint, do not make the pot your are boiling too heavy.

3. Wire Hanger

  • We have all done this before. Whether we were trying to unclog a drain or unlock our cars. You can straiten a wire hanger and stick it down your drain to see if you can knock anything loose. Be carful doing this because you do not want to push the clog farther down the pipe.

4. Disconnect and Check the P-Trap

  • Go back and read how to do this in “How To Get Your Diamond Ring Out Of The Drain”. This step-by-step technique is good if you believe the clog is a little below your drain.
  • If you find that the clog is in the p-trap. Make sure you use a towel or toilet paper to clean out the pipe.

5. Drano

  • Drano, is a liquid product that you can buy at almost any hardware store and it is a chemical based liquid that moves and lubricates clogs gone.
  • The liquid foams up in the pipe and coats the walls. Drano, and other similar products work the best with minor clogs. Be carful handling the liquid around eyes and mouth.

6. Got a Shop Vacuum? Suck it up!

  • Do you have a shop vacuum that has a liquid setting. You can try to set the hose inside the drain and try to suck the clog up the pipes and into the vacuum.
  • Please! Make sure that you are not using a regular sweeping vacuum.

7. Plumbing Snake for a Clogged Drain

  • Though you will have to buy or call a plumber to snake a drain however this technique happens every day to get rid of drain clogs.
  • You need to remove the P-trap under the sink, turn it on, and force the snake down the pipe. The corkscrew tip grabs obstructions and pull whatever is there out!
