Tips for clearing clogged drains

Answered
Hi, Clogged drains are annoying. I too had faced this disturbing problem. I had already used some tips, but it didn't work. Finally, I call up a professional plumber from North York. It is very difficult to prevent clogging in our home. One of the absolute best ways to prevent slow or clogged drains is to be careful about what we put into them. Regular servicing prevent clogging. But it is not possible every time. Here are some tips to deal with this:
1)Run hot water through the sink after each use.
2)Throw a handful of baking soda into the drain and follow it with hot water.
3)Pour 1 cup of vinegar down the drain and let it sit for 30 minutes; then chase it down with very hot water.
I am not sure that the tips that I am mentioning will really help you. But you can just try them. Seek the help of a plumber soon as possible.

    Depending on where the drain is blocked.
    I've never had problems with blocked drains although I did help out a friend once using a tool I made for a different job!
    Having my flue liner swept regularly seemed quite an expensive task, especially as it was something I could do myself. I came across some rods (cheap) used by electricians for fishing wires through limited spaces. Total length was about 15metres I attached a load of cheap cable ties to the end of one rod & secured them further using a hot glue gun. This works a treat for sweeping the soot from my flue - as it did when I used it to unblock my friend's drain. Simply push the rods in one at a time, continually twisting the rods clockwise to 'encourage' them to stay screwed together. When I came across the blockage, I simply attached the rods to my electric drill & let the numerous cable ties do their thing.
    This was on an underground drain measuring 4" internal diameter.
