A clogged kitchen drain can be a frustrating, inconvenient issue to deal with. With the right tools, you can easily clear the blockage from your sink and restore its proper drainage. In this blog post, we will look at the use of DuraCable’s 3/8″ x90 ft for clearing kitchen sink clogs.
This versatile and durable tool can help you tackle stubborn drain clogs easily. This step-by-step guide will help you unclog your sink and keep it running smoothly.
Assess the Severity of the Clog
It’s important to assess the severity of the blockage before using DuraCable 3/8″x90 ft. If the drain is completely blocked, and water is not draining, you will need to manually remove standing water using a bucket or plunger. If the water is draining slowly, continue to the next stage.
Gather the necessary tools
Gather other essential tools like safety gloves, eyewear, a bucket, a flashlight, and more. These items are essential for your safety, and will make the process easier.
Prepare the DuraCable
Attach the DuraCable 3-/8″ x a 90-feet cable to a drain cleaner or power drill compatible with DuraCable. Assure that the cable has been properly aligned, and is securely connected.
Insert the cable in the drain
Insert the cable slowly into the kitchen drain until you experience resistance. Start gently and gradually increase pressure as you reach the clog. Do not force the cable. This could damage the pipes.
Rotate and Manoeuvre the Cable
Once the cable is in place, rotate it clockwise while pushing it further down the drain. This rotational movement breaks up the clog, and allows the cables to navigate around bends and curvatures in the pipes.
Apply steady pressure
As you rotate the cable and maneuver it, apply constant pressure to help it pass through the clog. Avoid sudden, jerky movements as they may cause the cable to get tangled.
Continue the Process
Continue to insert the cable into the drain, until you start to feel the resistance diminish. This indicates that you have reached the clog. Repeat this process if needed to ensure that the clog is completely removed.
Flush with Water
Once the clog in the kitchen sink has been cleared, flush it with hot water to remove any debris and ensure proper drainage. Watch the water flow to confirm that the clog was successfully removed.
DuraCable: How to store and clean it
After use, clean DuraCable thoroughly. To ensure the cable’s longevity and effectiveness, store it in a dry and safe place.
