It’s happened to the best of us: we’ve let something slip down our drains or flushed something we weren’t supposed to down our toilets. The result is usually pooling water that refuses to drain and, despite our best efforts, a drain that just won’t seem to unclog. The next time you find yourself in this situation, make sure you’re giving these three things a try before calling for Toronto plumber:
- Plunger: When the water in your toilet keeps on rising or refuses to go down, there’s nothing better than having the old standby to combat a clog: a plunger. Most people don’t realize that you can also use a plunger for your sink (albeit a different one from your toilet!) to create the same results!
- Baking soda and vinegar: It’s important not to put harsh cleaners down your drain because they could degrade your plumbing or septic environment. Instead, blast away clogs with vinegar and baking soda! This winning combination will make quick work of even the toughest clogs.
- Cable auger: If the going gets really tough and you happen to have a cable auger on hand, give it a whirl and see what’s causing your pipes trouble. Augers can break down even solid objects with supreme force, giving you your drainage back in no time.
If these three methods fail, it’s likely you’ve got a bigger problem on your hand. Get in touch with a Toronto plumber to see what’s really going on in your pipes.
