Plumbers Tips: Great Ways To Unblock A Drain

Unblock A Drain

To unblock a drain is probably one of the worst DIY jobs a person can think off. Most people would rather wash the swimming pool with a toothbrush before facing the challenge of a drain. The smell is bad and the experience unpleasant, which is why you want to do it quickly and effectively.

This was an unofficial poll that some plumbers did with their customers in Allentown PA. Here are some local Allentown plumbers to consider:

  • Schuler Service Inc : – (610) 434-7103
  • Robinson Plumbing : – (610) 351-9889
  • Maitz Home Services : – (800) 282-1505

Just read a little further about the best ways you can tackle this mess without getting dirty.

Don’t Let It Clog

This sounds rather stupid doesn’t it? But would you prefer unclogging it several times a month? Always keep in mind that drains function on a daily basis. This is also means that a lot of garbage moves through those pipes. It’s obvious that they are going to start packing up at some point. There are several drain unblocking products on the market, ranging from powders to liquid, which you can use to keep those drains clean. Prevention is better than retaliation in this case.

The Options You Have

Power snake used for drain cleaning by plumbersYour first option is to call a professional, but this seems rather drastic. It could be a small blockage that only needs a little plunge to fix. You definitely won’t have to suffer through that unpleasant smell, but it’s going to cost you. The second option is to go the hardware store and ask for some powerful drain cleaner products. This can be in powder form, for which you typically need boiling water, or as a liquid. Regardless of the form it comes in, always use it with safety in mind. These products are made out of very toxic and harmful compounds. You never want to get into direct contact with the substance, nor do you want to smell it.

Assuming you don’t have time to go to the hardware store and you don’t feel like paying a professional something you can do, then try this home remedy. Try to get the area as dry as possible. Remove all access water if possible. Now throw some baking soda down the drain, about a cup. Make sure that it goes down rather deep. This is followed by two cups of boiling hot water and give it a few minutes to mix with the baking soda. Now add more baking soda, but keep some vinegar  handy, preferably one cup, because this goes in right after the baking soda. Finish the process by replacing the plug in the sink or the cover of the drain hole. Some strange sizzling noise should be coming from the drain and that is a very good sign.

It means the mixture is working and the drain should be clean after a few minutes. Last but not least, you can use a plunger if the above products do not work. However, this will take more effort and leave some water in the sink to help the plunger to stick. Conclusion Until science can invent better methods of cleaning drains, these are your best and quickest options to unblock a drain.

Repairing water leak inside fridge: Freezing drain vs. clogged drain line


My double (french) door Samsung fridge was leaking water inside the fridge and water was getting down into the crisper drawer at the base of the fridge and also under the drawer. We shut off the water to the fridge but it was still leaking water from condensation because the drain was clogged. In this video we show how to un-clog the drain behind the fridge that drains into the evaporation condensation pan. We also show how to install a part that helps prevent freezing which can also clog the drain. Many Samsung fridges also have had freezing issues. Hope this helps you with your fridge!

Purchased the part below to prevent any future drain line freezing issues…

My fridge is the Samsung RF266AEPN french door stainless steel refrigerator but this should apply to most samsung friges and possibly other brands too.
