DIY Drain Clogs: Best Methods You Need To Know

Clogged drains are the most common plumbing problems that homeowners face. Homeowners usually run into a problem where water doesn’t drain quickly when the bathroom or kitchen sink is pouring down.

Homeowners will have to try to eliminate these clogs as soon as they find them, because they will take a long time.

To do so, a homeowner can use simple forms or suggestions to fix these home plumbing problems on his own.

One method is by the use of a plumbing snake.

A plumbing snake is a thin wire or plastic pipe that may move into a drain to dislodge a clog.

To extract a snake coil, cut the drain cover, and then insert the snake’s knotted end into the drain, spinning the handle of the snake to force it deeper into the pipes. You have passed the clog once the snake is meeting resistance. Pull the snake and twist it to crack the debris, or attempt to catch the substance to bring the clog out. Replace the snake and then flush with water over the pipe.
