How to Unclog a Drain Pipe
When wastewater does not run or runs badly, you have a blockage in your sewer or drainage and there is only unclog the drainage thing to do: unclog your drain. To call a plumber directly for this, something is exaggerated. In this article, we discuss how to unclog a drain pipe in Surrey.
In some cases, you can perfectly unclog the drain yourself by using a drain cleaner or using a liquid unblocking agent.
In the latter case, you often have to wait 24 hours for a good effect. If the clogged drain has not yet been remedied, it is time to call in a professional.
If you suffer from a total blockage then this is very difficult to solve yourself. Switch on a professional plumber for this.
In the case of a total blockage, several drains have trouble to drain the water and the problem can not be remedied in two to three.
It could also be possible that the municipal drains are blocked, which you then suffer from.
Check the inheritance well! If these are empty, then the problem lies on your own soil and the costs of a plumber will be for your own account.
If the well is full then you can assume that the sewerage of the municipality is hidden. If this is indeed the case then the costs will be recoverable from the municipality.
Switch on plumber
A non-working drain is very annoying. Usually, dirt is the cause, but sometimes this is caused by the (inadvertent) flushing of oversized objects that continue to pinch somewhere in the drain. If dirt is the cause, you can still try to unclog the drain yourself.
With an unblocker or a sunblocking agent, for example. Does this not provide a solace? Then you have a severe blockage and it is best to switch on a plumber.
Where do most of the blockages occur?
The drain is blocked so that running water cannot go anywhere until it is left in the sink, cabin or toilet.
Sometimes it is necessary to clean the entire drain, this means that the piping of the drain must be completely disassembled after which it can be cleaned properly and the blockade can be removed.
Drain kitchen and sink blocked?
If there is a blockage at the sink, dishwasher or washbasin, they are similar to each other. The problem is often in the siphon. The siphon is the gooseneck under the sink or table that is often clogged by food remains.
You can safely unscrew the siphon and clean it so that the drainage water can get a good throughput again. Do you not get the siphon or drain pipe clean? Then use an old metal clothes hanger where you can pull out the dirt so that it falls out.
TIP: Use vinegar with soda in boiling water to thoroughly rinse the pipes after removing the plug with dirt.
If this is not for you or you do not have time to unblock your drain yourself, ask for a quotation without obligation. We will call you as soon as possible to make an appointment and solve the problem.
Drain shower well and bath blocked? unclog the drain
In the bathroom, there is of course also the one and other that can hide. When one of the pits in the bathroom becomes blocked, the shower or washbasin may no longer run smoothly. This is annoying and moreover, it can also start stinking too.
The difference between the drains of a bath or shower is that they do not have a siphon. Both drains have one for sieve that can be unscrewed to remove the excess dirt. By placing the shower head in the drain, you can easily wash away the dirt. Use hot water for this purpose so that fat residue is dissolved.
An additional tool may be that you use soda. You pour a handful of soda into the well and pour hot water through it. The soda helps to dissolve and dissolve dirt in the drain. Many people also use drain unblocker, this often works well too, but when this is done too often there is a chance to wear on the drain. This should therefore only be used when other solutions do not work.
