Having a little bit of knowledge regarding plumbing and blocked drains doesn’t hurt when you’re a homeowner. Additionally, some inside information consisting of different hacks and tricks for a blocked drain can also make life easier.

Most hacks that assist with a blocked drain are incredibly simple, and including concoctions made from items you’d find in any normal home. You don’t need to be a plumbing expert to benefit from the hacks in the following article.

  1. Hot Water

The first magical recipe consists of – wait for it – hot water. At this point, you’re probably saying, “hot water and what else?” However, the magic ends there. Hot water is the only ingredient in this super-secret recipe for blocked drains.

Heating up a pot of hot or boiling water can break down nasty material that clogs your drains. Sometimes this is all it takes to provide the solution you’re looking for when it comes to nasty clogs.

  1. Baking Soda, Vinegar, and Hot Water

No, we’re not making a volcano for a school science project. If hot water alone doesn’t do the trick, this mixture, however, will create a volcano-like effect for your blocked drains.

Pour this mixture down your drain, then cover it for about a half-hour. Afterward, pour hot water down and watch for the results. You should end up with a clear drain as a result of this mixture.

  1. Dish Soap

Dish soap is another secret ingredient that can lead to an unblocked drain. Combine Dawn dish detergent with hot water and pour it down the drain you’re having issues with. This should produce a certain level of relief and allow the drain to flow again.

If you’re having issues with a blocked drain, try a mixture of all of these solutions and see if one produces the results you desire. In the event they don’t, you may have a bigger problem on your hands. When you don’t receive relief from any of these tricks, you may want to contact your local plumber and blocked drains expert such as Hilton Plumbing and move forward from there.
