How Do I Deal with Blocked Drains?

Since drains can be blocked due to daily use, it is always handy to have some DIY tricks up your sleeve to clear small blockages. In the case where the block is still not cleared up, one of our plumbers can take care of the matter for you. Plungers are reasonably effective tools for clearing blocked drains. By applying pressure and releasing it through the motion of using a plunger, the block can be forced loose to be flushed through the system. Plungers are ideal when a block is caused by solid matter. However, when you are dealing with mineral and fat blockages, the push-pull motion will not be as effective.

Boiled water is useful when dealing with a blocked drain in the kitchen sink or washroom, as most of these blockages are caused by fat, grease, and other minerals. In the case where your sink is fitted with galvanized pipes, boiled water is ideal to loosen the blockage and let it flush through the system. If you are dealing with PVC joints and plastic pipes, let the boiling water cool down for a bit first. Otherwise, it may melt the joints or cause damage to the interior surfaces of the pipes.
