How to unblock a blocked drain Adelaide with Baking Soda

Posted by on March 7, 2017

Sinks in the kitchen and bathrooms stand a chance of getting blocked at some stage with the high frequency of use.

This often happens at the worst time possible. Usually this occurs when you are entertaining guests! However, there is no need to worry. Help is right under your nose in your own home.

What you will need

  • Vinegar
  • Baking Soda
  • Plunger
  • Hot water

If possible, the first thing to do is find the reason for the blockage. There is usually a good reason for a blockage and hopefully this isn’t hard for you to find. By locating the blockage, you have done most the work required to unblock it.

 If you cant find out where the blocked drain Adelaide blockage is occurring, then you need to read on.

Usually when there is a blocked drain in your home you are able to unblock the drain yourself by using a plunger. In this case, no plumber will be required thus saving you money! Should a plunger not do the job, then you will need to use other methods and materials in your home to unblock the blockage.

Other than a plunger, vinegar and soda serve as a great tool and is extremely effective to unblock drains. Most people store vinegar and baking soda in their kitchen cupboards.  Follow the steps below to try unblocking the drain:

  1. Boil water on the stove
  2. Pour approximately 1 cup of baking soda down the drain
  3. Pour approximately 1 cup of vinegar down the drain
  4. Allow the baking soda and vinegar to settle for 10-15 minutes. This should hopefully dissolve whatever is causing the blockage.
  5. Pour the pot of boiling water down the drain to remove any debris that may still exist.

It’s important that you start practicing preventive measures to stop your blocked drain Adelaide from blocking again.

Many people perform the baking soda and vinegar routine once a month as a precautionary measure. Be sure that after washing your hair, you remove any hair that is lodged into the drain to prevent blockages from occurring. At all times, use a strainer in the sink to prevent food and other debris from clogging up your drain.

If none of the above techniques work, you may have a more serious problem in your drain. You will need to contact a Adelaide plumber to help you rectify the issue.
