DIY Drain Cleaning Tips

With the exception of bored kids who are home for summer break, there are few things more demanding of your immediate attention than a clogged drain. 

Here are some tips you can try to fix a clog before calling a plumber:

  • Try flushing the drain with boiling water. While there’s no guarantee that this method will flush large blockages, often a boiling water flush will help disintegrate smaller, lighter problems. Note: boiling water works best on metal pipes. Use caution using water over 175 degrees on PVC pipes.
  • Make your own drain cleaner. If you have the sneaking suspicion that your clog is caused by grease, try making your own drain cleaner with vinegar and baking soda. Simply take ½ cup of baking soda and put it down into the drain as far as you can get it. Pour vinegar on that, creating the fizzing action that will help clear your drain.
  • Use a plunger. It's important to get over the “eww factor” of your household plunger because it's an important part of your drain clearing arsenal. But you have to know how to use one effectively. Chances are your plunger is a cup plunger which you can place on top of a sink or tub drain and start plunging away. For toilets, however, you should have a flange or toilet plunger – they fit down the narrow drain of a toilet.
  • Try a drain auger. A great tool to have around the house is a drain auger. This is basically a hand-operated version of the kind of plumbing snake that plumbers use. You can buy them for about $20 at your local hardware or home improvement store.

If after trying DIY methods you still have a clogged drain, call 1st  Home and Commercial Services. Our licensed plumbers in Austin are well trained to unclog any type of drain.
