Clogged Drains: A Guide

Clogged drains are the worst. Whether it’s your kitchen sink, the drain from your clothes washer or your bathtub/shower, if your water isn’t going down the drain, you’ve got problems. The first thing most people think of when they need to unclog a drain is to grab the plunger. Your toilet is clogged? Plunge it. But you can use the plunger in your sinks and in your tubs and shower. Plungers were made to unclog any drain.Clogged Sink Drain Plunger

Do You Know How to Fix a Clogged Drain?

Have you ever used a plunger before? Chances are, you most likely have. Some people plunge aimlessly without knowing what they’re doing. I know that I have done this countless times even though I think I know what I’m doing. Even knowing what I’m doing, I still feel as though I’m aimlessly working toward my intended goal. Just because I work for a plumber doesn’t mean I know how to be a plumber. I’m learning and I want to pass that on to you.

Now, a magician can’t give away all their secrets, and neither should a plumber. That doesn’t mean however that you shouldn’t know how to do simple things around your house if you wanted to. I already dislodged my garbage disposal when something was stuck in it and no more than a few weeks ago I unclogged my shower drain. Knowing simple things can help having to have a plumber come out for a simple service call so you can save your money for when you need something serious done like you need a new water heater.

Unclogging a Drain

Drain unclogger liquids that you can buy in the store aren’t that good for your pipes, especially if they’re old pipes and haven’t been updated or upgraded to PVC or PEX piping like we do here at Bruce Thompson Plumbing LLC in St. George and Cedar City. If your drains get clogged, try a plunger. There are a few different types in the store so make sure you get the right one. Also, if you’re not sure what you’re doing, a tutorial can be found with a quick search on the Internet and your pipes should be back in working order in no time.

Situation: Your sink is clogged. Solution: Plunge it. You’ll want to make sure there’s water in the sink or the tap running. You’re not going to get enough pressure down the drain without the water. You’ll want to plunge up and down for about fifteen to twenty seconds to get whatever is lodged to dislodge. Your water should be flowing through with ease in no time. If you’re still having issues, then that’s the time you need to call Bruce Thompson Plumbing LLC in St. George and Cedar City and we’ll be there to help you in no time!
