If householders find their drains are prone to clogging then it might be a good idea to invest in a plumber’s snake to ensure the water flows smoothly from their bathroom.
According to Al and Kelly Carrell of the Super Handy Man, writing for the Daily Herald, these tools are relatively inexpensive and are fed into the plumbing until it reaches the reason for the blockage. It then pushes it apart or pulls it out.
For clogged wash basins, the pros suggest removing the P trap under the basin, because this makes reaching the problem area more easy, while clean-out plugs in a property’s cellar or utility room can also be vantage points for dealing with less-than-perfect water flow.
Finally, when replacing drains, the Carrells advise covering the threads of drain lines and plugs with Teflon tape or petroleum jelly so they will be easily accessible in the future.
Last week, Shower Enclosures confirmed that soapy water is still the best thing for cleaning showers, while vinegar can also make a tough stain remover.
