10 Methods To Clear Your Clogged Sink Drain

  1. Plunger: One of the most common and effective methods is to use a plunger. Create a tight seal around the drain and vigorously plunge up and down to dislodge the clog.
  2. Boiling Water: Pouring boiling water down the drain can often dissolve minor clogs caused by grease or soap buildup. Be careful not to use boiling water if you have PVC pipes, as it could damage them.
  3. Baking Soda and Vinegar: Combine half a cup of baking soda with half a cup of vinegar and pour it down the drain. Let it sit for a while, then flush it with hot water. The chemical reaction can help break down the clog.
  4. Salt and Hot Water: Mix half a cup of salt with a few liters of hot water and pour it down the drain. Allow it to sit overnight, then flush it with hot water the next morning. This method is useful for grease and mineral buildup.
  5. Wire Coat Hanger: Straighten out a wire coat hanger and create a small hook at one end. Insert it into the drain and attempt to pull out the clog manually. Exercise caution to avoid damaging the pipes.
  6. Plumbing Snake: A plumbing snake, or drain auger, is a flexible tool that can be inserted into the drain to break up and remove clogs. Rotate the snake while pushing it into the drain until you feel resistance, then pull it out along with the clog.
  7. Dish Soap and Hot Water: Squirt a generous amount of dish soap into the drain, followed by hot water. The soap can help lubricate the clog and facilitate its movement down the pipe.
  8. Wet and Dry Vacuum: If you have a wet and dry vacuum cleaner, you can use it to remove the clog. Set it to the liquid setting, create a tight seal over the drain, and switch it on to suck out the obstruction.
  9. Enzyme Cleaners: Enzyme-based drain cleaners can be effective in breaking down organic matter causing clogs. Follow the instructions on the product and give it some time to work before flushing with water.
  10. Call a Professional: If none of the DIY methods above work or if you’re uncomfortable handling the situation yourself, it’s best to call a professional plumber like CT Sewer Rooter who can assess and clear the clog using specialized tools and techniques.

Stephen Staysniak
Tim is 100% professional. I discovered a problem mid-morning on a Saturday. Less than four hours later Tim was pulling out my driveway having fully solved the problem. He was able to immediately diagnose the issue, understood the complexities that might be at play in my almost 100 year plumbing system, and worked carefully to get the job done. Very grateful that I called Tim and kept my money local instead of going with a national franchise. Highly highly recommend. Thank you Tim!

Professional, thorough, very responsive. Great experience
Paul Jeffrey
Years ago I had wet basement systems and curtain drains installed in my home/yard...I was supposed to have the lines cleaned every 3-4 years to avoid clogging and keep yard dry. Well 4 years became 8 or 9 and the lines were plugged up. I nervously called Tim & Trey at CT Sewer Rooter and they came reasonably fast and acted swiftly. Neatly and effectively cleaning the drains with state of the art equipment...Trey was professional & courteous and did a great job for much less money than the big name drain cleaning yards drier already. I would recommend these guys to anyone!

Tim saved the day, professional, courteous, very nice person. I would highly recommend him. The pricing is fair and he responded all my calls, and I know nothing about plumbing.

5 Stars+... Great father and son team. Professional, quick, honest. Called at lunch, made an appointment for 2 hours later that worked with my schedule, and were exactly on time. Tim and his son resolved the problem with the toilet quickly and took the time to check the sewer line... All for a very reasonable price.. Father and son were both very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. You won't regret using them!! They are a 24 hour service, very responsive.

Got them to come and give me a second opinion after the outrageous quote from Rotor Rooter. They were at my door within 2 hours and not only they did the job (water jetted my sewer line to clear out the roots/rotor rooter told me I had to replace the entire section and the quote was not something cheap), but also gave me some great advice regarding my sewer line and how to keep it in good condition. The price was very reasonable for the job performed, highly recommend. Thank you, guys.

I called Tim and he and his truck arrived right away. He quickly identified the problem and had my house back up and running soon after. He explained everything he was doing every step of the way and his prices were reasonable. I'm definitely recommending him to everyone in my town.
Clay Cromer
I called Tim to come investigate a blockage we had in our in-ground drain in the yard. He called me back right away, scheduled a visit for the next day & completed the job on schedule. Good communication, good results, fast service, professionalism & fair prices were my experience; definitely recommend!
Jay Zibelman
Had a broken sewer pipe right at foundation of house. Tim called back and visited to quote promptly, very fair quote. Started job right on time, dealt with unexpected problems underground (concrete to break through) with dispatch and completed job same day. Work was neat and highly professional. Thank you!
