Clogged Drain? Try One of These Tips From The Plumbing Contractors at Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating, Anchorage, Alaska

Clogs happen. From the buildup of hair to underground tree roots growing into the pipes, there are multiple reasons for a backup. The plumbing contractors at Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating in Anchorage, AK, understand clogs, and they can help you deal with everything from sewage system issues to leaky faucets and clogged drains.

These plumbing repair experts know that you may not have time to call a plumber while your sink is close to overflowing. If this is the case, they suggest using one or more of these methods to clear out your drain:

  • Remove The Drain Cover: Sometimes the solution can be as simple as getting rid of hair and other debris that has built up right underneath your drain cover. Just unscrew the top of your drain cover and give the drain opening itself a good wash with soap and water. Once the water drains like normal, you have fixed the problem.
  • Buy a Plunger: Plungers work not only on toilets, but also on bathtubs and sinks. Simply fill up the sink or tub with water and plunge over the drain opening until the water starts to go down.
  • Use a Wet/Dry Vacuum: If you have a vacuum designed to clean up liquid messes, put on the hose attachment and take out any filters or vacuum that could be damaged inside. Once you cover up the vent with duct tape so that there are no leaks, then turn on the vacuum. Pulling the clog out is always be easier than pushing it down.
