How to Unclog a Clogged Drain

You can often fix a clogged bathtub, sink, or shower drain yourself in many cases. Here's a guide on how to do it.

Mechanical - First, try removing the drain cover or screen if it's installed. Often, mechanically removing accumulated impurities like hairballs is sufficient. If the clog is deeper, you can use tweezers or a wire hook to help.

Plunger - Another option is to use a rubber plunger. This works especially well if the drain is only partially clogged. Fill the tub with water and seal the overflow. This helps create the necessary suction. Use the plunger until the impurities causing the clog come out. When a whirlpool forms, it's a sign that the drain is clear.

Siphon Disassembly - If the clog is in the siphon, you'll need to disassemble it and flush it out. It's not complicated; just prepare a bucket and a rag for wastewater. While you have the siphon disassembled, check the gasket. If it's damaged or deteriorated, replace it with a new one.

Water Pressure - You can also use water pressure from a garden hose or pressure washer, or an industrial vacuum.

Plumber's Snake - The classic method is, of course, to use a plumber's snake. If you don't have one at home, you can easily buy it at a hardware store, and using it is not difficult. With it, you can reach several meters deep into the drainpipe.

Chemically - Among the proven methods is cleaning with sodium hydroxide. Pour the prescribed amount into the drain, let it sit for a few minutes, and then pour hot water.
