6 Plumbing Repair Tools for Unclogging Drains

Home Repair

When it comes to plumbing repair in Anderson, SC, a clogged drain is one of the most common issues that homeowners struggle with in their homes. From hair in the shower to food in the sink and more, you never know when you're going to have one of your pipes draining slower than usual, if it's draining at all. Before you contact the plumber to come help you, here are 6 tools that you can use to try to fix the problem on your own.


More likely than not, you've probably used a plunger at one time or another on a clogged toilet. By placing the plunger over the drain and using force to push downward, you can force the clog to move through the pipes and out of the way. You can use this same tool to clear other drains throughout your home. Whether your sink or shower is draining slowly, grab the plunger. Try placing it over the drain. Use force to push down repeatedly until the clog is removed. It would be a good idea to use a different plunger than the one you're using on your toilets.


An auger can be threaded through your pipes to remove anything clogging the pipes. There are different kinds of augers that you can purchase. For example, there are barbed augers that you can use on your shower drains. They will help you gather hair and other things stuck in the drains. Most drains have a crank that you have to use to thread the auger through the drain.  


At the store, you'll notice that there are several products that you can choose from to help remove clogs from your drain. You'll find that these products can be helpful to remove the clogs from the drains; however, you should be wary of using them. They contain harsh chemicals that can damage your pipes. Most plumbers would recommend that you stay away from this option and move on to other tools.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

For minor clogs, try pouring 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain. Then, add about 1 to 2 cups of vinegar down the drain. Cover the drain with a rag, so the chemical reaction between the baking soda and vinegar can move down and clean the pipe along the way. You may need to repeat this process twice. Wait 30 minutes. Then, pour hot water down the drain to clear the baking soda and vinegar from the pipes.

Wet/Dry Vacuum

You can purchase or rent a wet/dry vacuum to suck up the water and other debris from your pipes. Make sure that you use a wet/dry vacuum in order to protect yourself from the risk of electrocution. Place the vacuum over the pipe and turn it on. It can remove all excess water. If you have something that fell down your drain that you would like to get back, try placing pantyhose over the vacuum nozzle. The pantyhose will catch the item so you can get it back.

Drain-Cleaning Bladder

A drain-cleaning bladder can be attached to a garden hose. Then, put the bladder into the drain. It uses 10psi to push the clog out of the drain and into the main sewer line for you.

When it comes to completing your own plumbing repair in Anderson, SC, gather the tools that you need to clear the clogs from your drains. After trying what you can do to remove the clog on your own, contact a plumber. There may be an issue with your pipes or the main sewer line that will require professional attention to help fix the clog for you.
