A how to on clearing blocked drains
The step you can take to begin clearing drains happens to be one of the most simple ones. Get the plunger. This is easy and if it works, your life just became so much simpler. If the first step doesn’t work, there is always the baking soda and vinegar method. With this method you run hot water through your pipes to heat them suckers up, and then put a small amount of baking soda into the drain and let it sit for a couple of minutes. After this, pour a fair amount of vinegar into the drain (I hate vinegar). Leave it sit, so that it settles. About ten minutes should do.
Next you will need to rinse out the drain with some hot water. If you have made it this far and have not made any progress at all, then life might start to suck for your wallet. The next best thing you could do is to buy a drain auger. Luckily for you, these are not too expensive. They go for around $20. This is a device that you snake down into your drain (that’s why it is also called a snake). It goes way down in there so that you can get all of the icky gunk out.
Drain augers can come in quite handy in the future, should you or a friend ever need a drain unclogged again (highly likely). Those things seem to always be causing some kind of trouble. If all of these steps still have not worked, and you are about ready to give up, there is one last step you can do before throwing in the towel.
The awesome pressurized drain opener. Go buy one of those. Pressurized drain openers come in a can, and are known to work wonders on clearing drains. Especially the clogged ones. If you shop around, you can find them really cheap, around $15. It would probably be best to make sure that you check out the reviews for pressurized drain openers first, just so that you can make sure that you are buying the best product for a great price. Now, if you have made it this far without any luck, it is time to call an expert.
