Household injuries are one of the most common problems that urgent care centers and emergency rooms see in patients. Chances are you’ll be a statistic if you don’t know what you’re doing. You’re 60% more likely to injure yourself than a residential plumber would doing the same job. It is also highly likely that you are going to cause some damage to your plumbing too while trying to unclog a drain. Dangerous chemicals, the wrong tools, and a lack of know-how are a formula for disaster.

A plumber in New Port Richey has abundant training, as well as experience to handle jobs like this, as well as other non emergency items. As a member of the community, we also know that money can be tight. So, here are some safe and effective tips to unclog a drain or pipe without breaking it in the process.

Some Tips to Clear a Drain

First off, if you don’t feel comfortable, don’t try any of these. Call a plumber in instead. If you do feel comfortable however, start with the simple. Use boiling or hot water. Hot water can unclog some simple clogs easily. Boil water and pour it into the drain carefully. Let it set awhile to see if it works, and then try again. Repeat the procedure until the water moves freely through the drain.

Plunging your drain can also be effective for some clogs. Be sure to put on rubber gloves and goggles for protection. Push the plunger up and down repeatedly until the clog loosens and flows freely. Sometimes, though, both of these techniques are only band-aid fixes. If the problem persists, make sure that you call a plumber in to fix the problem on a permanent basis.
