Great tool for removing clogs
Whenever you have a clogged drain, a snake can be a very effective tool for removing the source of an obstruction. While you can rent this type of equipment in a hardware store, it is very important that you are very careful when using it. If you aren’t, you could potentially do extensive damage to your plumbing.
You should never make the mistake of inserting the drain snake too quickly, because this could force the clog farther down the pipe. If it gets too far down the line, you may not have enough cable to be able to remove it. Also, don’t forget to snake any lines that branch off the main one you’re trying to clear. The obstruction may actually be in the branch and could be easy to miss.
If you choose not to snake your drain but you’d rather use a chemical drain cleaner instead, make sure that you read the label. If you use the wrong type of cleaner you could damage your pipes and make the problem much worse.
