Tools You’ll Need to Unclog a Drain

  • The first tool to reach for when trouble arises is a plunger. This plumber’s friend clears clogs from most fixtures, including sinks, tubs and toilets. Every homeowner should keep one handy.
  • To dislodge clogs located farther down the drainpipe, use a cable auger, or plumber’s snake, a long, flexible steel cable wound around a spool that’s fitted with a hand crank. Cable augers are available in lengths up to 100 feet, though a 25-foot model will suffice for most any household clog.
  • closet auger is specifically made for snaking out toilets. It, too, is equipped with a hand crank, but instead of a spool, the cable is encased in a rigid shaft. The auger end is bent at a precise angle to fit through the tight curves of a toilet trap.
  • For a very large clog or one that’s far from the fixture, rent an electric power auger. This machine—basically a large cable auger powered by an electric motor—is very effective at cutting through virtually any clog, even tangled tree roots. Before bringing home a power auger, be sure the rental agent shows you how to safely dispense and retrieve the cable.

Common Causes of Clogs

  • Hair
  • Soap
  • Dirt
  • Food Waste
  • Mineral Buildup 
  • Small Objects
  • Toilet Paper Buildup
  • Tree Roots

There are certain items that can get stuck in your drain lines depending on the area of the property. With kitchens, you may see such issues with your garbage disposal and kitchen drains due to improper food waste being sent down your drains. With such items as avocado pits or spaghetti, it’s only a matter of time before water is blocked from passing through your kitchen drain pipes. In other areas of the home such as with bathrooms, you’re likely to see a build-up of hair and soap scum gunk accumulating over your pipe walls over time. These things will require drain cleaning and removal with professional plumbing tools. For more severe clogs that run deeper in your pipes as seen with underground tree roots infiltrating your sewer or main water lines, a professional leak detector job will be necessary to trace clogs and leaks caused by pipe breaks. Speak to a professional plumber today to see what course of action should be taken to handle the problem that you’re experiencing with your property.
