What Clogs Drains?
Most anything can clog a drain, but drains in different areas of your house are often exposed to different types of debris that can create blockages.
Unclogging Your Drain
Once you have worked out that there is something blocking your drain, sometimes a plunger will do the trick. But if not, you’ll need to hire a qualified plumber to come and fix the problem using a rooter.
What Is a Rooter?
A drain rooter is more commonly known as a drain or plumbers snake. It is also known as an auger, which is a type of drill bit that is used to dislodge difficult plumbing clogs. The plumber operating the rooter will rotate a crank found at the end of the device, causing a metal wire to move down your drain. Eventually, this wire will meet resistance in the form of the mass clogging your drain. In order to get rid of this mass, the plumber will continue to push against it until it gives, or, depending on the type of clog, will rewind the drain snake, bringing the blockage with it.
Once the mass has been removed, all you need to do is run some water through the drain for a few minutes to ensure that there is nothing left of the blockage.
Different Types of Rooters
Depending on the type of drain, there are different drain rooters that one could use to remove a blockage.
