Have you tried Drano (or a comparable product) on your clogged drain but it’s just not working? Or maybe you keep having to use Drano, over and over again.
No matter what your situation is, there are other methods of drain cleaning you can dry if Drano is not working. Here’s how to unclog your drains for good!
Baking soda and vinegar may unclog your drain better than Drano ever could. Start by getting rid of the standing water in your drain. If it will go down slowly, just wait until it’s gone. If it isn’t moving, use a cup or a spoon to get it out of there.
Then, put 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of vinegar down the drain and let it sit there for 30 minutes. When the time is up, run warm water down the drain and see if the clog is gone.
Most people assume that plungers only work on toilets, but they can actually unclog drains all over your house. Make sure the plunger forms a tight seal over the opening of the drain, then start plunging. You may need to work for several minutes before you see much of a difference. Don’t give up unless you have plunged for 5 minutes or more without a discernible change.
A plumbing snake is a long coil of metal that you can thread or push through your drain. It usually has a point or a hook on the end, for breaking up or pulling out clogs. You can usually rent these at your local hardware stores.
Make sure you get a snake that is the right size for your drain and that you never put it more than 3-4 feet into the drain. Otherwise, it can get stuck down there and cause even more plumbing problems! Thread the drain until you hit a blockage. Wind the snake back up to try to remove the clog or use the snake to break it up.

Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.
