A slow draining fixture can be a huge annoyance, and if left unchecked can lead to a fully clogged drain and overflowing water. But have no fear, there are ways to fix a slow drain before it escalates and causes damage. Homeowners can prevent clogged drains by refraining from putting food waste, grease, and other solids in the drain. However, if it’s already too late, try unclogging the drain with the following simple DIY tips and get your plumbing flow back!

  1. Remove the drain cover of the sink or tub. Sometimes, a build-up of hair and other debris will create a gunky coating on the drain cover which restricts the flow of water. You can easily remove this coating by hand, or by soaking the cover in white vinegar to loosen tougher debris.
  2. Use a plunger. There are separate styles of plungers for sinks and toilets which are pretty effective at unclogging their respective drains. Make sure the cup of the plunger completely covers the drain. Hold the plunger upright, and vigorously plunge 10-20 times to create a buildup in pressure and release the clog.
  3. Use baking soda and vinegar to make your own drain cleaner. Pour a half cup of baking soda down the drain and follow it with a half cup of white vinegar. This should create an acidic reaction which will eat away at the clog in the pipe. Rinse with hot water.
  4. Fashion a metal coat hanger into a DIY drain snake and use it to push or pull the clog through the drain. Be gentle while rooting around in the drain so as not to damage the fixture.

If all else fails, call us today! At Empire Plumbing, we are available 24/7, and we respond quickly to service calls for slowed or clogged drains.
