If your drain clogs, you can usually clear the pipe with a standard plunger. Whether in your kitchen or bathroom sink or in your shower, simply press the plunger over the drain and pump up and down vigorously to dislodge the clog.
If you continue having problems, you may have a bigger clog that needs professional attention. You can prevent these problems in the future by installing drain traps.
Toilet Won't Flush?
Most toilet clogs can also be dislodged with a plunger. Be careful not to flush the toilet multiple times, however, as this could cause the basin to overflow.
