Clogged drain… how inconvenient. Most homeowner will face some type of drain clog at some point. Although some drain problems will require a professional to solve the problem, there are some things you can do yourself. For example if the sink is clogged you can try a plunger, or remove and clean the p-trap under the sink. It’s pretty simple to replace a toilet flapper or flush valve. Of course prevention is the best answer to these problems. Just because it’s a drain does not mean anything can go down it. Don’t use your sink as a garbage can, be careful what items you flush down the drain. And, remember, the plumber is a professional and should be called upon if the problem is more than you can handle.
