    Like most home owners who have a drain problem, I don’t like using chemicals in my home, but my hair clogged the shower drain before I could get a screen to stop it. Anyone know of something else that will work? The water will not soakaway and I think the shower drain is blocked after the waste trap....


  2. my above ground pool has been sitting for two years what kind of maintenance does it need?

    I have a drainage question for you all. My above ground pool has been sitting without any drainage maintenance for two years what kind of maintenance does it need? I don’t want to totally drain it. You can see the bottom. What kind of chemicals, or maintenance does it need? Would the answer be amended if I mentioned that it is sitting next to the garden soakaway although separated by an impermeable membrane....


  3. What household chemicals can I use to unclog a drain?

    I live in an apartment where the drain clogs up a lot. I have called the apartment management about the problem and asked them to unclog the drain for me. They visit and they pour some chemicals down the drain and it clears it up. What can I use so I don’t have to call the management all the time? I am broke so can not afford the top brands like liquid plumber for instance so I would like a natural drain cleaner....


  4. what happens to chemicals poured down the drain?

    Not just chemicals, but all the junk we pour down our drains systems to unblock drains, like drain-o, shampoo, toilet bowl cleansers…all this harmful junk we use. Is it cleaned form the water at sewage plants? Does it become physical matter that then can be removed? Does it break-down? How can farmers use waste from sewage plants if it has residue from drain-o in it? Also if any of this overflows on the surface and drains into a garden soakaway does this accumulate in there or break down?...

    Need to have cleaned by professional. Sorry.
    You could try a eel made for toilets sold at hardware stores. Are you using the plunger 6-8 firm plunges?

    Drano works

    When a toilet clogs, do not continue to flush it. Additional flushing will not push objects through and may flood the bathroom floor. Instead bail out the toilet until the bowl is about half full. More water than this can lead to a slushy mess while plunging, but too little water will prevent the plunger from making a tight seal around the bowl’s outlet. Work up and down vigorously for about a dozen strokes, and then quickly yank away the plunger. If the water disappears with a glug, it’s likely the plunging has succeeded. But don’t flush yet. First pour in more water. Until the bowl empties several times. If plunging doesn’t work, the toilet will have to be augered.

    Try not to use any chem in any drain. Best to plunge or use auger.

    I had a toilet drain problem caused by (believe it or not) a tree root that made its way up through the concrete slab, through the wax ring, and down into the drain where it spread out into what looked like a mop head. You may have to take the toilet off of the flange and try to resolve the clog from there. It is much easier than trying to snake the drain from inside the bowl.

    your going to have to go out and buy yourself an auger Home depot, Lowe’s or any hardware store
    then snake it out
    they are reasonably priced and better than plungers
    and they are always handy to have

    good luck ;-)

    You need a snake to clean the drain, DO NOT use chemicals, they will make it worse. There are also the new style plunger that actually builds up a shot of air that will blow them out but I would just call a rooter service.

    Dont waste money on Draino. You might as well use Kool Aid. Get Easyflow drain unclogger from a plumbing supply store. Be careful , read directions and follow them , Strong Stuff. good luck

    There is a tool available for $20.00 or less, called a toilet snake. Most come with basic instructions, and are easy to use. Don’t get too vigorous when you pull it out, especially if it seems to be stuck. If it does stick, either reverse rotation to back it out or remove the toilet to clear what it is hung up on. If the snake does not work, remove the toilet and get a longer snake, or call a plumber.
