How to unblock your drain?
Professional plumbers use several techniques to clear clogged drains, including a Manual Drain Snake, Motorised Drain Snake, Hydro-Jetting Machine.
Manual Drain Snake
A drain snake, also known as the plumber’s snake, is a small rotating piece of equipment that the plumber uses to push the drain open. It is the most commonly used piece of equipment by plumbers because it clears clogged pipes and toilets. It removes any debris and passes it into the sewer system.
Motorised Drain Snake
The motorised drain snake is used to clear clogged drains by reaching the sewer cleanout port from the outside. They can reach up to 150 feet into blocked drains and remove more severe blockages than a manual snake.
If these methods fail to clear the blockage, a hydro-jet may be needed to blast the blockage with high-pressure water. A video inspection of your drainage will reveal whether or not you need hydro-jetting.

Frequently Asked Questions
Caustic acid is a great chemical drain unblocker to use for unblocking outside drains. Mix the mixture and pour it into the blocked drain.
If an outside drain appears to be overflowing, it is a sign of an obstruction between the inside plumbing and the outside drain or an external blockage due to outside debris. The best way to fix the problem is to call a plumber.
Add half a cup of baking soda to the sink, then add half a teaspoon of distilled vinegar. This mixture will cause a fizzing effect that will eliminate the blockage. Allow it to run for about 20 minutes, then pour some hot water down the drain.
Baking soda and vinegar mixture also works effectively in cleaning sink drains. Pour the baking soda first down the drain then add white vinegar slowly. Allow the bubbling mixture to work for 15 minutes, then rinse the drain with hot water to remove any residue.
Fill the sink with hot, bleached water and drain it through the pipes would be the simple solution to smelly drainage. This should remove any food or other debris that has clung to the pipes and allow them to drain out. For those who want a natural solution, baking soda and vinegar also do wonders.
Unfortunately, homeowners insurance does not typically cover maintenance issues such as clogged pipes. However, you might be able to add water backup protection to your policy to protect against damage caused by sewage backup.
