Common questions to fix a blocked drain

One of the quickest and easiest solutions to fix a blocked drain is to try pouring a pot of boiling water into the drain. In many cases this may be enough to loosen or dissolve the blockage without having to resort to more serious measures. Be careful though, you should only use method on metal or ceramic pipes, as the heat can loosen joints on plastic or PVC pipes.


There are some other methods that people might use to fix a blocked drain such as;

  • Getting a bent wire coat hanger – you might be able to twist and poke it down the drain to loosen the blockage. Although this will depend on the shape of your drain, how far down the blockage is or even what the blockage is.

  • Baking soda and vinegar – this is a popular method that is used that can work sometimes but you need to be careful about what proportion of each one you use and sometimes you may need to leave it overnight before the blockage is cleared. You would also need to check on the material and thickness of your drain pipes to prevent any other damage.

  • A wet and dry vacuum cleaner – we have heard of some people placing a vacuum cleaner over their drain to try and suck out the debris. Although the success of this method depends on how strong the vacuum is, whether you can create a seal around the drain and how far down the blockage is.

  • Caustic soda – this is extremely dangerous and similar to baking soda could cause damage to pipes, your flooring or even yourself if you are not properly protected. It may also require multiple doses to clear the blockage.
There may be other combinations or methods to fix a blocked drain that you can read about on the internet or YouTube. Ultimately though if you want a drain unblocked quickly it is recommended to get a professional local plumber to do it for you. We can then also check to see if there are other underlying issues causing the problem like broken pipes, tree roots inside pipes etc
