DRAIN SNAKE AND OTHER WAYS OF CLEARING CHOKED PIPE
Drain snake is frequently used to unclog badly choked drain pipe. Let us understand more about choked drain pipe and what you can perform before calling a plumber to use a drain snake.
Clogged or choked drain pipe occurs due to a variety of reasons. While it is possible to unclog your drain pipe yourself, it is recommended that you engage a reliable plumber to inspect your drain pipe before the best and most suitable solution is deployed.
How to Clear a Clogged Drain Pipe?
Clogged drain pipe can be effectively cleared using different tools. A plunger is the most frequently used manual tool to unclog the drain pipe. You just have to push and release the plunger so that the pressure or suction created by it forces the materials blocking the pipe to clear. However, if the plunger fails, you may have to try other ways.
Manual Drain Snake Device to Clear the Choking Drain Pipe
If you engage a plumber, the plumber will have more specialized tools to unclog the drain pipe. Some plumbers use the manual drain snake. It is a long metal coil or spring which is flexible to extend itself into the drain pipe and penetrate the materials blocking the drain pipe.
Electrical Drain Snake Device to Unblock Clogged Drain Pipe
Modern plumbers would use the electrical drain snake which means more powerful and faster clearing of choked drain pipe. The same metal coil or spring is attached to a rotating or drilling device and automatically turn and penetrate which it is switched on. It is very effective and the choked drain pipe should clear within 10 to 15 minutes.
Maintenance of Drain Pipe after Unclogging
Once it is cleared, it is advisable that you pour hot water and drain pipe clearing gel or cleaners (which you can purchase in super market) periodically to maintain it and ensure proper water flow through the pipe. Some people prefer to maintain the pipes with baking soda and warm vinegar before rinsing it with boiling water. This home made clearing method is also effective in maintaining and clearing partially blocked drain pipes.
Preventing Choked Drain Pipe in Future
Preventing a choked drain pipe from occurring may be easier than unclogging it. Just ensure that you avoid dumping pieces of solid material into the drain pipe and use a drain screen to filter any solid material from entering the drain pipe. Frequently, long hair is the culprit for choked drain pipe because the drain screen may not effectively filter the hair. If you have ladies with long hair, it may be advisable for them to pick the hair up and throw away.
Why Engage Professional Plumbers?
While some simple drainage choking incidents can be easily overcome using the plunger, serious choking may require the expertise and tools of professional plumbers.
