There are times when an unexpected clog can really put a damper on your day and you simply don't have time to get the clog fixed by a plumber either because you are running late for work, you have guests coming over, or you're going out of town. Typically, clogs can be fixed fairly quickly with a few temporary fixes. Here are four of those tricks:
Hot Water: The first trick is to simply pour hot water down the drain since hot water can sometimes break up anything that is causing a blockage and thus clear the drains.
Your home's plumbing acts as the circulation system for all of the water and wastewater that you and your family produce over the course of the day. An improperly functioning or leaking plumbing system can thus cause all sorts of problems, including a major disruption of your day to day routine and serious water damage to the interior of your home. Fortunately, there are a few warning signs that an aging or damaged plumbing system will exhibit before it gets to that point, allowing you to contact a plumber about replacing your pipes before they fail.
