Avoid the Plumber and Learn How to Unclog a Drain on Your Own

List: Posted: 12/10/10

A clogged drain is certainly no fun. It’s also no fun to pay a hefty expense to a professional plumber when you need to unclog a drain. Understanding how to unclog a drain on your own can help you save the next time you find yourself facing a backed up sink.


First, you may be able to unclog a drain using products that are available in your supermarket. There are many commercially available products on the market that can simply be poured into the drain to fix the clog. If the clog is relatively small, this can be a simple and inexpensive way to fix the problem without calling out a plumber.


If the clog in the drain is large, a drain unclogging liquid may not be strong enough to handle the job. In this case, you may need to physically unclog a drain. A plumber’s snake can be handy in this instance. You can usually find these tools at most hardware stores. The ‘snake’ can be inserted into the drain to push the clog on through the pipes, thus unclogging the drain. The cost for the tool typically varies based on the size, but considering it can be reused is a much less expensive alternative to calling out a plumber.

Knowing how to unclog a drain on your own can save you not only a lot of hassle, but also a lot of expense.
