Blocked sewers can cause serious problems for homeowners, especially when backed up in basements or crawl spaces. The good news is that most blocked drains can be fixed by following simple instructions.
Find the pipe
The first thing you need to do is find the pipe. This will help you determine where the blockage is located. You should check under sinks, toilets, bathtubs, and other areas where water might collect. If you cannot locate the drain, call a plumber immediately.
Clean Out the Pipe
Once you have found the pipe, you need to clean out any debris that has collected inside. You can use a plunger or a snake to remove the clog. Make sure to wear protective gear when using these tools.
Unblock with hot water
Give your plumbing system at least five to ten minutes to absorb the hot water. The hot water aids in the removal of debris, such as built-up grease, oils, or coatings on the drain walls. The best and simplest technique to unclog the main sewer line may be to repeat this numerous times.
