Sometimes it happens, when drain clogging suddenly appears. If the problem will not be removed immediately, it can cause lots of problems. For example, sinks or bath, or shower, or toilet will be unavailable for usage. Additionally, chronical clog may appear, so the risk of water leaking and even floods becomes rather probable. As the result, homeowner may spend lots of time and money for restoration from the water damage and repair works.
One of the simple ways to remove clog is to apply ready chemical mix that is available in any market directly to clogged drain. Although sometimes you need to act fast, while you do not have this mix at home. Another reason to find alternative option is toxicity of chemicals offered by markets and damage that they can cause to you pipes.
Excellent Plumbing offers simple, cheap and effective alternative, that may be prepared at home with things you may have. Such method will not only save you pipes, but prevent chemicals going into the environment and leading to pollution.
So prepare next ingredients:
- Baking soda – half of a cup;
- Vinegar – full cup;
- Hot water.
Steps to be performed:
- Take off the stopper from the drain;
- Pour off soda directly into the drain and add vinegar to it;
- Give this mix 10 minutes to process with clog;
- Flush the hot water;
- Return stopper at its place.
In case drain wasn’t maintained for a while, and clog appeared is rather big, the procedure should be repeated for couple of times.
