My kitchen sink has a blockage. Should I use a chemical drain cleaner?
Keep harsh chemicals, such as drain cleaner, out of your pipes. Mechanical cleaning is much more effective, safer for the environment and healthier for your pipes and home.
My toilet is backing up. Why? What should I do?
The curved sections of your toilet plumbing, or the trap, can plug with any foreign object, especially when small children are in the home.
The toilet will back up and often overflow. Turn off the water valve under the toilet. First, add enough water to the toilet bowl to seal around rim of the toilet plunger. Plunge the toilet gently, ensuring a tight seal with plunger rim and internal edges of the toilet bowl. Use more force, if needed.
