A trusty plunger is great for less serious drain clogs. It’s recommended that you don’t use the same plunger that you would on your toilet on sinks and other drains. The professionals use heavy-duty plungers that are a bit more elaborate than your average household plungers.

Drain Snake

Similar to small augers, these long, metal tools are designed to slip into drains and quickly clear away anything it their path. Professional plumbers use these powerful tools to break through and clear the really stubborn clogs. The drain snake is a drain clearing mainstay.


This highly effective drain cleaning method works by sending pulsating jets of water into a clogged pipe, removing anything in its way. It’s a really powerful and thorough way to completely clear out a drain. Unlike other methods, it usually leaves no residue that can cause problems in the future.
