A Plunger is a rubber cap provided along with a handle. When using it, due to pressure changes under the hood of a traffic jam in the discharge pipe, which caused the blockage, enough is easily destroyed.
An effective way is flushing siphon and adjacent pipes. It is recommended to use special household products, such as plastic and metal pipes good fit “Mole”, for pipes of any type - “Tiret”, “Mr Muscle”. When using chemicals for safety should use protective gloves. Chemically active components of these funds dissolved hair, leftover food, and kill bacteria. Therefore, their use is effective for cleaning pipes and eliminate the unpleasant odor of sink holes. If all the above measures do not bring the desired result, the removal of blockage in the sink provides the use of wire rope fittings.
How to remove fat deposits in the drain trap
Fat is deposited in the drain trap and eventually accumulates. In connection with this unfavorable process it narrows the available flow of the pipe, and as a result it is no longer sufficient for proper water drainage. Cleaning out the fat can be a very simple task…sometimes:
for a variety of plastic pipes - have pots of boiling water poured down the sink and clean the drain with the plunger,
if the plastic pipe, the moderately hot water diluted detergent (glass powder by 5-liter pan) and well stirred solution was slowly poured into the stock stream sink (if necessary the procedure was repeated.) The best drain cleaner products are also a good idea for tougher clogs.
How to clean the corrugated pipe for drainage
On the corrugated surface subsidence fat, soaps, detergents and various contaminants is very intense. Therefore, it is necessary to corrugated pipes periodically cleaned and washed. Otherwise, the risk of blockage becomes very large. According to the rules should:
before you remove the blockage, it is necessary to unscrew the tube from the funnel, located in the sink;
disconnect the upper pipe from drain into the sewer;
elbow bend (trap) to gently remove;
stretch tube so as to spread all faces and rinse it with water;
more thorough cleaning of the pipe is as follows:
with a piece of cellophane and ropes need to close one end of the pipe;
pour into hot water pipe and to close the other end as the first;
taking tube arms at both ends, carry a circular motion, if such action is repeated several times, the cleaning effect will be much higher;
siphon purified, as well as a pipe, sometimes specially purified reservoir intended for upholding water
after completion of the cleaning of all parts tightly bolted.
Do the cleaning drain pipes powder with biological properties?
Effective means of clogging the sink - washing powders, which are composed of biological agents. Among such tools are popular powders “Bio”, “Bio-moment”, “Bio-C», «Dosia». The enzymes contained in these powders provide efficient cleavage of organic contaminants.
To qualitatively wash pipes when sink is clogged, it is necessary:
before the break through the blockage in the sink, remove the water from it,
pour into the drain a hot solution of lye or soda, you can use special effective means of “Mole”, “Mole 2”
make a break for 1.5-3 h,
after the break, pour into the drain hot water
Clean the sink plunger.
When cleaning the clogged plumbing prefer a flexible cable
How to remove the blockage, if irrigation pipe does not help? Plumbers in such cases, use the three-meter flexible cable. Thanks spiked with screw-in nozzle movements into a drain pipe clogged area is destroyed. After cleaning the blockage failed, it is necessary to rinse the pipe large amount of hot soapy water.
Every modern adult should know how to clean the sink from clogging to such trouble does not create unnecessary problems. The use of preventive measures with effective chemicals largely solve this problem. However, often the problem can be quite serious and it alone will not work.
