Expert Drain Unclogging Tip

This drain unclogging tip article will help you get minor clogs repaired faster than before. Our home plumbing is easy to take for granted yet it’s something we can’t do without in our daily lives. We only usually take notice of it when there is a clog or something else goes wrong with it. And while serious drain clogs will need to be serviced by a professional plumber there are others which can be taken care of yourself. That’s when your handy plunger plays a vital role in your home plumbing maintenance.

While plungers seem to be fairly common sense tools to use here is another drain unclogging tip which can help you get the most out of your efforts and therefore likely help to unclog the minor drain clogs having the issue. First, it’s best to use a plunger that is slightly larger than the drain itself. And the level of water is important to note as too much water means it will splash and no one wants this when unclogging a toilet drain. If it’s too little water there won’t be an effective seal possible. So the best amount of water is just enough to cover the cup of the plunger. So if you need to remove water first you will glad to do so. Just use gloves and a bucket or can to get this done prior to plunging.

Another drain unclogging tip is to stop the drains that are close to the toilet such as the sink or bathtub. This will create more pressure in the toilet drain and help you unclog it more effectively. If you have stoppers for the other drains use them, if not, you can use a wet rag or washcloth and it will still help to a degree. Once you’re ready to plunge it’s all about creating a tight seal. One secret is to use a bit of petroleum jelly on the rim of the plunger to help create the best seal possible.

Here’s another drain unclogging tips. When you’re plunging the toilet do so with a good amount of force for a few seconds and then remove the plunger quickly. The idea is to lift the clog rather than force it down further into the drain in order to clear it. Repeat the process until the clog has been cleared. If there is an item such as a toy or valuable stuck in the drain a common plunger you may need to pick up a 25-foot drain auger otherwise called a plumber’s snake from the hardware store which will penetrate the drain more effectively. Or, you can call a professional plumber who will have the drain clog cleared in no time at all.

Why Plumber.ca?

There are several plumbers out there. Many have experience. So why choose us over everyone else? Here are a few reasons:

check  No Hourly Charges – Many customers do not see the advantages of having a plumber who does not work by the hour. A plumber who works on a fixed price has no reason to stick around after the job is finished to ensure he gets paid more. Even if the job takes more time than required, you still pay the same amount.

check  Upfront, Exact Pricing – Every job we do has a set price shown in our price book. We go through with you exactly what the scope of the work will be to fix your problem and the costs involved. You know before we start what the final price will be – no surprises!

check  Rapid Response Times – Our highly efficient dispatch team will make sure our local plumbers are at your location as soon as possible. Under regular conditions, our plumbing technicians will arrive at your location within 24-hours. Service calls can take longer than expected and specialty parts may need to be ordered, which may push the wait times longer so we communicate ongoing.

check  Priority Calls – Emergency calls are our highest priority. We know they can quickly become a serious situation. You can place a priority call to ensure you are the next customer to be serviced. The technician will be at your location within 24-hours. All priority calls require a credit card upon calling.

check  Local Plumbers – There is no sense in calling a plumbing service that is in another city. We have plumbers in all major city centers across the GTA that can respond to your emergency when you need it.

check  Fully Loaded Work Trucks – A fully inventoried truck is crucial so that your problem can not only be diagnosed quickly, but fixed quickly as well. Even if the job requires a specialty part, we can have it ordered within 24-hours.
