Tips on Unclogging a Drain | Orange County Plumbing Service

Plumbing Equipment On House Plans

There’s many reasons a drain could become clogged, the main reason however is hair. Built up hair and debris over a period of time could cause blockage issues that could ruin every shower for you!

Here’s some tips on how to unclog that drain!

  • The Plunger Method

Much like a backed up toilet, a clogged shower may be fixed using a plunger. Spread some petroleum jelly around the rim of the plunger to get a better seal around your shower drain and then plunge the drain with 10-15 pumps at a time.

  • The Coat Hanger Method

Though a little more unconventional, this method may be very effective. Use a screwdriver to remove and drain covers and grab a flashlight. Using the light straight into the drain, insert a straightened wire coat hanger and see if you can pierce whatever is clogging the drain.

  • Baking Soda & Vinegar

Mixing white vinegar and baking soda together and pouring it down your clogged drain could take a couple of hours to fix a clog, but is effective in the end.

  • Plumber’s Snake

If you have a difficult clog, you may need to use a plumber’s snake. It’s basically a long stick with a roll of wire headed through the middle of it. Using the hand crank, insert the snake into the drain and push through the clog.

  • Chemicals

When all else fails, the store always carries a large amount of heavy duty chemicals made specifically for getting rid of clogs. Simply pour the solution down your clog and it should be gone in a while.
