Unclogging a Drain

You can use a plunger to try to free up a clog.  We recommend a plunger that has the normal grapefruit shape then narrows to a can shape at the bottom. These fit nicely in the sink drain opening.  Place the plunger in the drain opening and push down on the plunger to apply pressure down the drain.

We do not recommend chemical drain products as they can damage pipes and can be harmful to the environment.  You should never put chemicals down the disposal side.   We recommend you maintain your drains with Bio One, a unique drain maintenance product that contains live bacteria that actually cleans drains by consuming grease, oil and food that has built up in the drain.  Our plumbers carry Bio One on their truck and it can also be purchased from our office.
