3 Tips for Unblocking Blocked Drains and 3 Tips for Preventing Blocked Drains in Cosham

Blocked drains are the bane of every homeowner’s existence. They happen at the worst possible time and are usually a pain in the wallet. Today we want to show you three tips for unblocking blocked drains and three tips for preventing them to begin with. Let’s start with unblocking a blocked drain in Cosham.

  1. Use a Plunger. You can use a plunger on all of your interior drains. Simply create a seal with the plunger on the affected drain and force water through. The pushing and pulling motion should loosen the blockage.
  2. Use an Augur. An augur, also called a pipe snake, is a long metal device that is designed to push its way through tough blockages in the pipes. Push the end of the augur through the drain until you feel it stop and keep cranking it until it goes through.
  3. Use an Unblocking Chemical. Drain unblocking chemicals are a bit controversial and we recommend them with a word of caution. If they don’t work in the designated time frame, they can cause damage to the pipes and burn your skin or eyes if you continue working with the plunger or augur. Always let the plumber know you’ve used chemicals if you call us in to remove the blockage.

Preventative maintenance is the best way to prevent blocked drains. So here are three ways to keep your drains clear.

  1. Yearly Maintenance. Yearly maintenance, not unlike the oil change in your car, prevents blocked drains by keeping the drains and pipes clean from year to year. This doesn’t mean someone won’t flush a toy or pour grease down the drain, so it isn’t 100% effective, but it’s as close as we can get.
  2. Baking Soda and Vinegar. Pour a half cup of baking soda down the drain and follow it with 1 cup of vinegar. Allow it to set for 15 to 30 minutes and rinse with very hot water.
  3. Watch what Goes Down. Don’t allow children to flush toys or send them down the bathtub drain. Don’t allow people to put food scraps or grease down the kitchen sink drain. Pay attention to what goes down each drain and educate all members of your family on how to prevent blocked drains.
