Unclog your drain tips
Before you call in a professional from Zoofy, you might want to do some work yourself. Many people try to clear a clogged drain themselves before calling in professional help. That is why we have compiled some drain clogging tips for you. Who knows, you may succeed in clearing the clogged drain yourself.
Tip 1: Ever heard of a plopper? If you Googled it you'll recognize it. It's one of those rubber suction cups on a wooden handle. You can use the suction cup of a plopper to pull accumulated dirt out of the drain pipe. Before you start working with the plopper, make sure there is a layer of water in the plumbing. This will increase the suction power.
Tip 2: Is a plopper not working? Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain. Then add a cup of vinegar. Beware! This fizzes and foams. Let the mixture soak it for 15 minutes, then pour boiling water over it.
Tip 3: Not successful? You can repeat tip 2, but also do the following: mix a bucket of hot water with a packet of baking soda. Unlike all the chemical unclogging products on the market, this is an environmentally friendly way of unclogging the drain. Flush the bucket down the clogged drain and let it soak in overnight.
Tip 4: Are you dealing with a clogged drain and a siphon (gooseneck)? If you can reach it, you can unscrew the siphon and clean the inside. Put a container under it before you start cleaning it. Dirt can come out of it. Using gloves with this job certainly won't hurt, it's a dirty job. Make sure you mount the siphon properly after cleaning, otherwise you have a chance of a leak.
