Really Easy Ways to Unclog Drains

Blocked drain have a visual warning like water taking longing to drain, and the weird, unpleasant odors that will come from the drain. If you are dealing with a drain that is starting to clog, you need to deal with it quickly. No one likes to deal with blocked drain, but leaving them the way they are can lead to burst pipes, or a useless shower, or sink.

If you have removed the hair and gunk from the drain, and tried liquid plumber, and both options have not worked. There is some really easy things that you can use to fix blocked drain Seven Hills, without having to call an emergency plumber.

  1. Bent Wire Hangers

Using a bent wire hanger is a simple idea that works surprisingly well. If you have a wire coat hanger, straighten it out as much as you can. Once the coat hanger is straightened out, bend one end to have a small hook. Push the hook past the drain cover, and start fishing the nasty stuff out of the drain. Try not to push the gunk further down the drain. Once you have gotten as much as you can out of the drain, run hot water to try to remove the loosest pieces.

  1. Baking Soda and Vinegar

While this does make a cool science project, it can also unclog drains. Mix together 1/3 cup of baking soda, and 1/3 cup of vinegar. Once it starts to fizz, pour the mixture into the drain. The fizzing that the mixture is creating will remove the hair, gunk and grime that is in the pipe. Leave the drain overnight, or for a minimum of an hour, then flush the drain with hot water.

Another method is to get as much baking soda as you can into the drain, and then pour in the vinegar. Both methods work about the same.

  1. Boiling Water

The easiest method. Simply boil as much water as you can. Once the water is boiling, pour the water in to the blocked drain in two or three stages. Allow a few seconds between each pour. This normally works on most blocked drain.

  1. Dish Detergent

This works the best on toilets. If your toilet is clogged, pour about ¼ cups of liquid dish detergent in the toilet bowl. Boil some water. The liquid dish detergent will help break up any greasy residue and help lubricate the pipes. Once the water is boiled, pour it in the toilet, and start plunging the toilet. If the plunging does not work, you can use rubber glove to try to remove the blockage.
