Drain snakes are used by plumbers to dislodge any blockages deep within the pipes that cause clogged drains. When homeowners clean their drains on their own, they may find that their drain snakes can’t go down the drain. Some people force themselves to clear the clog, only to cause damages when trying to fix the problem on their own.
It’s advisable to rely on professional plumbers’ drain cleaning services when the homeowners can’t fix the problem themselves. There are multiple reasons why the drain snake won’t go down the drain, and they include people using the wrong drain snake size, using a dysfunctional drain snake, using too much force while dislodging blockages, and the blockage being too big.
Some blockages are found on the drain’s stopper mechanism where a snake isn’t necessary, allowing homeowners to solve the problem themselves, while some clogs are found further down. When people continuously try and fix the clog themselves, they can do more harm to their plumbing system.
It’s best to trust a reliable plumber for any household’s plumbing issues to ensure that the problem is solved. They can also help people who had damaged their pipes when they tried repairing themselves. For more information, see this article by Mr. Rooter.
