Clearing Clogged Drains


As the pool of water collects around the drain, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach. You dread another costly visit from the plumber.

This how-to explains a number of simple ways to unclog drains and how to avoid clogged drains in the future.

Are chemical drain cleaners safe and effective? When drains clog, your first impulse may be to rush to the store and buy a chemical drain cleaner. For some blockages these cleaners will work; however, other mechanical procedures will usually clear the clog more completely and safely.

If you decide to use a chemical drain opener, make sure to read and follow the directions on the bottle.

Cleaning strainers or stoppers

Many clogs collect around the strainer or stopper in the sink or bathtub, so to unclog the drain, all you may need to do is remove the strainer and clean it.

  • If there is a strainer over the clogged drain, you should remove any screws holding the strainer in place and then pry the strainer up with the tip...
