Probably the best thing to do is to be patient and let the water clear on its own. Another way is to lay down with the clogged ear on the pillow, or let your ear rest on your palm. Let it warm, and the water will drain out.

I use a shop vac and reduce the vacuum hose down to fit the drain tube and suck the dirt out.

Best home remedy for clogged drain

If it's a sink drain , best to remove the entire pipe and P trap. I then take outside and hose them out.

The best thing to do is to use a plunger first. Plungers will take care of most clogged drains but if you have a serious clog try using a snake.

If your bathtub or shower drain is clogged, chances are it's clogged with hair and almost any drain cleaner sold in stores will dissolve a hair blockage. Follow instructions on the bottle. If it's your kitchen drain, there are products to clean garbage disposals that will dissolve most food products. Again follow directions on the bottle and use hot water.

Drain cleaner is the easiest, but may not clear it out. Use a snake to clear out clogs. Remove the overflow plate above the drain and run the snake down through there. That is easier than trying to go in the drain and making the sharp bend where it meets the drain.

The best way I have found to open a clogged drain tube on a refrigerator is to check both ends of the tube for any visible clogs. If the tube is clogged at the top,an easy rinse is the best way to fix the problem. Fill a syringe with warm water and squeeze up and back until the clog is removed. If that doesn't work, get a fairly stiff length of solid wire and rotor-rooter the clog out. Now, if the tube is clear then you should check the drain that comes out of the freezer area, where you took the long drain tube out. Clean that out with first the wire then the ear syringe. If it is still clogged, then you have to take the evaporator cover off and see if the drain trough is clogged or if the evaporator is full of ice. If this is the case, then you have to clear the ice with a hair dryer until it is free of ice. If none of these suggestions work, then you have defrost problems, which can include some but not usually all of the following: # bad defrost timer # defrost heater # defrost overload. But on the bright side, approx. 90%of the time, you will find the main long defrost tube clogged, so your problem should be easy to fix.

The best option is to purchase a sink strainer to place ontop of the opening to the drain. This will prevent hair and soap and dirt reside from staying inside the drain.

Depending on your budget, you may want to call several plumbers to find the best price. Also, ask local people for their reccomendations. Fixing a clogged drain is very common so all plumbers would be able to help.

A plunger is still the best tool, but if you have a double sink it gets a little tricky. On a double sink you will need to plug the opposite drain; if your drain has a basket that screws in that will work, but if it does not then use this method to close off that drain. Put whatever stopper you have in place and then cover it with a wet washrag and hold it down firmly. Now on your clogged disposal side add water only a few inches and use the plunger, remember you are trying to dislodge the clog and free up a passage for drainage. It does not have to be perfect, at this time. Hint: Make sure your disposal is off and don't let anyone near the switch while you are working on it. Try to clear out as much using a tongs before trying to plunge. When you get it flowing make sure to run sufficient water down the drain to clear the traps use a couple gallons after that run the hot water for awhile this will help clear some of the built up greases.

Pasta, pasta oooh la la pasta!

A clogged drain can be a headache for many people, preventing the use of a sink or drain. Drain clogs are usually caused by hair or fabric, which gathers debris as water is flushed down a drain. A drain cleaner can clear organic debris from a drain. Drain cleaners are usually made from sodium hydroxide embedded in a gel. This can eat through hair, but won't clear wood, metal, or fabric in a drain. A pipe cleaner with a hook can be a great way to clear inorganic debris in a drain. Some sinks with plugs have a removable assembly, to make cleaning easier.

Clogged 2001 Saturn AC drainAfter talking to a Saturn mechanic I found it. It's centered and is about 18"-24" down from the top of the firewall. He told me there was a small balloon at the end and usually they cut of off with a pair of dykes and then clear it. The best way to get to it is from under the car but it can be accessed from the top from the passenger side. Mine didn't have the balloon at the end but it was full of crud. After I cleaned it out it probably drained a pint of water.
