Clog Removal Methods
If the cork is small, you can try dissolving it with hot water. Owners of metal pipes should use 1 liter of boiling water. Just pour it into the drain and wait half an hour. If plastic pipes are installed, use water heated to 60 degrees to avoid the products’ deformation. Check if the blockage is gone by turning on the tap.
Another effective way is to use a plunger. Press it against the drain, and then pull it sharply towards you. Repeat this procedure several times to destroy the plug. The plunger will help to cope with larger plugs that boiling water could not eliminate. Then turn on the water to flush the dirt down the drain.
Often, blockage occurs due to fat accumulated in the pipes. In this case, you can prepare a unique solution. Pour 1 cup of baking soda and half a glass of salt with a liter of water, stir and pour into the drain. The resulting caustic solution is effective against contamination. Use the plunger to destroy the cork accurately.
You can also pour 150 g of baking soda into the drain, and then pour it with 9 percent vinegar. After that, the foam will begin to form inside. Close the drain hole with the lid for 2 minutes and then turn on hot water. This will help push through the plug. The use of a special plumbing cable is also quite useful. Push it to the cork and start scrolling to break up the accumulated deposits. Then turn on hot water to wash away the deposits. The cable will also need to be cleaned of dirt.
