You need your drains to move wastewater out of the house, but when materials build up in the pipes, you end up with a clog. Most clogs aren’t too severe, and can be handled with a plunger or an auger. You can always call your plumber if you need a professional hand. Here’s what to do when a drain clogs.
When your drain backs up, you can’t get rid of your wastewater. This is a common problem for some household sinks, bathtubs, and toilets. If you have a clogged toilet, stand over the toilet with a plunger. Push the plastic part of the plunger down into the bowl, release, and repeat. Augers might be helpful for sinks and bathtub drains, because the clog might be farther down the pipe. If you can’t alleviate the clog on your own, don’t hesitate to call your plumber.
