4 Ways to Fix Blocked Drains for Good

  1. There’s probably nothing more annoying than having to repeatedly hire a plumber to fix your blocked drains. Especially when you realize the dates of their visit in your home are getting closer and closer together. That’s why it really pays off when you fix this problem for good before it becomes a money pit and will cause more compounding problems. Before we get into the details of the ways to fix your clog drains, let’s have a rundown first of the things that you will benefit when you fix the problem once and for all.

Advantage of Fixing the Problem for Good

        You can save money in the long run by not having to hire a plumber again and again – If clogs are allowed to compound, the result could be you having to invest in major repair work to remedy the problem once and for all. Add that up to the repair cost you must have already spent so many times that you’ve had to hire a plumber to fix the previous clogs. A simple drain unblock job can cost you $100-$500, while a complex job that requires jetting is around $250-$500You can do the math if you want, but the bottom line is by not letting a clog go unfixed can mean so much to your wallet.

        You will avoid future major repairs because your drain is no longer congested and in a bad state – When clogs are fixed for good, you can sleep soundly knowing your pipe is in good condition. A bad plumbing that’s never given the needed repair will not only make you end up with a major repair but as well as encourage other problems to come about. This can spell disaster in your home, therefore if you feel you’ve already spent too much to get your drains fixed each time, contact a drain specialist to know your best options to fix the problem permanently.

4 Ways to Fix Blocked Drain for Good

  1. 1. Home Tools – Do you have a wet and dry vacuum in your home? You won’t believe what this unlikely unclogging tool can do. Vacuum is surprisingly very effective in sucking debris and clogs out of the pipe. You only need to hook the hose of the vac into the blow position and press the end of the vacuum against the drain. Put a rag at the end of the vac to make an airtight seal, then turn on the vac to allow it to do its job. When you hear a squeaking hum or whine, that’s your indication that the vacuum is trying to break up the clog. You can then run the water and see if you’ve successfully cleared the clog. Vacuum really comes in handy when you have simple clogs in the kitchen drain or in the toilet, but in terrible situations, don’t wait further before calling a blocked drain Sydney professional.

  2. 2. Home Plumbing Tools – If you have a plunger tucked away at home then you’re lucky. Plungers are lifesavers whether you have clogs in your toilet or sink as long as it’s a clog that is not far way down. You can first give a plunger a shot. Most likely you’d be able to clear a clog and get your drains to work without getting a splash or causing harm to your tub, kitchen sink, or toilet. If plungers don’t work, you can attempt to clear a clog with a plumber’s eel or a snake. This tool is good at breaking small clogs and pulling out clogs caused by hair and other debris. If it’s your first time using a plumber’s eel, no worries, as long as you’re careful in using this tool you should be able to clear the clog safely. 
  3.  
  4. Slide down the head of the plumber’s eel while rotating its handle. As you rotate the handle the cable slides far way down until it reaches the clog. Once you feel a resistance you can gently rotate the handle again to pull the plumber’s eel back up. You should be able to pull up different nasty things using this procedure. But, just like home tools, while plungers and plumber’s eel are effective tools in clearing clogs, in awful situations or if you’re not comfortable unclogging your drains yourself, leave the job to the blocked drain cleaning Sydney expert instead.
  5.  
  6. 3. Hydro-jet clearing – Sometimes, the underlying condition, in this case, an obstruction that remains unresolved can cause more problems to crop up. That’s why it really pays off to get rid of the clog once and for all. If you can’t clear a clog using a vac, a plunger, or a plumber’s eel yourself, call the blocked drain experts instead. We can blast high-velocity water inside your pipes using a hydrojet to clear clogs away. This high-end tool can clear buildups of food waste and dirt on the pipe surface as well as stubborn blockages.

  7. 4. Blocked drain repair – We’re sure you’re here because you’re stuffed with fixing your repeatedly clogging drains. But that’s something you shouldn’t worry about if you get in touch with Revolution Pipe Relining. We’ve been successfully clearing drains for a number of years now.
