If you have a plumbing issue, of course we’d like you to contact us. We appreciate your business! However, we care about our customers’ best interests, too. Therefore, instead of having our plumbers come to your home for a clogged drain, we’d like to offer you some tips on how to use a plumbing snake efficiently. Unclogging your drain with the plumbing snake will save you money and bring you a sense of accomplishment.
1) loosen the material that is clogging the drain by slowly pouring a kettle of hot water into the clog. This will make using the snake much easier.
2) If the boiling water doesn’t make an impact, try an all-natural drain cleaner. This can consist of baking soda and vinegar. This combination will create bubbling that may help loosen the clog.
3) You can use a plunger to remove the clog. Covering the overflow valve will better your chances of moving the material creating the problem.
4) Even if the other steps have worked to enable flow, use a plumbing snake to remove any remaining particles that may lead to a future clog.
If you try this and cannot seem to get the clog removed, it’s definitely time to bring in the experts. Our team at Zurn will get everything flowing in no time at all! Call to schedule an appointment at 770-451-6765.
