Have you ever been in the shower when the water starts pooling around your feet?

Clogged drains can be a real pain, so what's the best way to clean them out?

Expert Michael Hail, from Budget Plumbing shares some tips.

  • No caustic chemicals down drains that are plugged
  • If you are going to use an acid based drain cleaner, only use as preventative
  • Natural enzymes for drain maintenance (not corrosive or harmful).
  • Use strainers, no heavy fruits and vegetables down disposal, nothing larger than crumb size.
  • When cleaning counters, let hot water run down the drains.
  • For a thorough cleaning we suggest high pressure water jetting (scrubs the pipe 360 degrees with special nozzles).
