Clogged Drain Plumbing

A clogged drain can be a very annoying problem to have. The water in the pipes gets so heavy and smells so awful that it is really hard to enjoy the water you have just purchased. Here are some ways to unclog drain clogs.

The first thing you want to do is turn off the water supply to the house. This should be done at the main valve that delivers water to the house, at the water faucet if you have one, or even at the pressure washer. Next, turn off any of the faucets that you use to get water from the sink or toilet, because they also are used to bring water to the rest of the house.

When you turn off the water supply, you are actually turning off all of the appliances in the house that might be using the water that is coming from the drain. If the drain is clogged and there is no water coming out, then that means the water going down the drain is causing the clog. For this reason, you must run the faucet that supplies water for the sink or toilet.

Once you turn off the water supply, you need to turn on the hot water heater that is not plugged in. This will turn the water on and provide warm water. After the water is heated, you can fill the tub with cold water, but if you do, make sure it is cold enough to fix the blockage. Many people think that cold water is going to help unclog the clog, but this is not true.

An old trick to unclog clogged drains is by following a simple water removal technique. Take a small pan and fill it halfway with water. Place a garden hose at the end of the hose and run it into the drain.

It is important that you let the water run out of the drain and not try to stop it from flowing again. This is because the water that runs out of the drain should always be allowed to run out of the drain. If you try to stop the water flow, you will only serve to add more blockage to the drain. If the water flows out without stopping, you can flush the clog with warm water.
