My Drain Snake Isn't Working | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If you have a clog or slow drain that you can’t fix on your own, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

Although the Covid pandemic has put a crimp in your usual plans for Halloween, you’re glad that so many organizations have stepped up and are holding safe events so the kids can have a bit of fun. Now, all you have to do is figure out how to create costumes for you and the kids to wear while making the rounds.

You’ve been slow about costume design this year in part because you’ve been coping with a perpetually slow drain in your kitchen. It seems you’ve tried everything to clean out the drain. You even went out and bought a plumber’s snake to see if that would work. It didn’t. Now you’re stuck.

Generally speaking, drain snakes (or drum augurs) are a handy tool to have around your home. But sometimes they simply don’t work. There are many possible reasons for that, according to thespruce.com.

Among those reasons:

  • You’re not using the right kind of drain snake. Thesrpuce.com notes that there are several types of augur – toilet snakes, small augers, and extra-long augurs. If you’re using the wrong type of drain snake, it simply won’t do the job.
  • The type of clog. Drain snakes work well on clogs that can be snagged – like hair. They do not work on clogs like grease or fat. Nor do hand augurs work well on really dense clogs.
  • The snake is dirty because it still has a former clog clinging to it. You need to thoroughly clean the corkscrew end for it to work, thespruce.com says.

If you try again and still can’t clear the clog, it’s time to call in a professional like the drain-clearing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
