How to clean the pipes

Find the obstruction. Is it inside the connection of the drain pipes of the bathtub, the toilet or perhaps the kitchen sink? It is likely that the obstruction in the drain pipes is due to the accumulation of residues of soap, hair, grease or debris from the kitchen. The siphon (sometimes called a U-trap) is the part of the pipe that must be disconnected and cleaned.

Disconnect the siphon from your pipe. The siphons are located below the drain hole in the sinks and toilets, and are located in the toilet tank. This waste tube traps waste, avoids the formation of deep obstructions in your piping system, and prevents the foul odors and gases from reaching your home.

Place a large bowl or bowl under your siphon, so you will catch excess water from the pipe.

To remove the siphon, take a wrench and unscrew the retaining caps from the pipe. Remove the waste tube and pour water and debris. Then wash the siphon with warm water, thus eliminating the remaining residues.

Then you can take a wire or a snake-type and remove any residue that holds the pipe.

Replace the tube and replace the caps.

Keep drain pipes clear. Prevention is the best measure; so, take care of your pipes to prevent them from getting stuck. If you try to clean your drains every 1 to 2 weeks, they will be less likely to become clogged.

Place filters all over your drain. These will prevent waste (such as hair, food, etc.) from entering the drain pipes.

Pour a drain cleaner into your pipes at intervals of a few weeks, so you will prevent debris from accumulating.

Flush your garbage disposer with hot water after each use to eliminate excess waste.
