Vomor in the sink – a fairly common problem. It can long brake the use of the sink in the bathroom or in the kitchen and even cause the accident. With some closers, you can cope with your own hands, while others require immediate emergency calls. Therefore, it is important to know the methods of cleaning pipes in advance, folk remedies and methods of preventing the formation of a blockage are effective. All these nuances will be discussed in this article.
At first glance it seems that the reasons for the formation of blocks a lot.
However, they can all be divided into 2 groups.
- The blockage is formed as a result of a foreign object fall into the pipe – residues of food, buttons, solid items.
- The occurrence of the blockage is associated with deposits on the inner surface of the pipes, as a result of which their lumen decreases, and water is badly leaving. Similar growths may consist of fats and other deposits.
Zoor in the sink may have a combined cause of occurrence, when the space of the pipe is clogged due to deposits and growths and outflows.
It is important to understand the reason for which the shell was scored, Since it depends on the choice of the problem of fixing the problem. When entering the pipe of large items, mechanical ways are commonly used. With a decrease in the pipe diameter due to deposits on its surface, chemical methods are resorted to. Combined blockages require alternate use of chemical, and then mechanical cleaning methods. As a rule, it is possible to break through such blocks at home with your own hands.
Depending on the etiology, the “tube” in the pipe can be several species.
- Operating blockage Cases as a result of long-term use of the sink and the absence of prophylactic cleansing. As a rule, in this case, the pipes from the inside are covered with a layer of oily plates, small food parts, hair.
- Mechanical. The cause of its occurrence is a large object in a pipe.
- Technical The species is due to the wrong installation of the pipeline system, marriage components. It is noteworthy that such a blockage may not appear immediately, but some time after the start of operation. Certray to the problem will help only changing the movement of water pipes, replacement of nodes.
Strong blockage can be caused by hit in a public outflow. Such situations are dangerous because it is not possible to eliminate the blockage on their own. The problem is usually detected not only in one pipe, for example, in the bathroom, but also in the kitchen and even the toilet (in sewage). Water does not leave and, moreover, independently, arrives, filling the sinks, toilet and threatening the premises.
Only emergency service experts will be able to cope with the nuisance. Before their arrival should be covered with water.
As already mentioned, first of all you need to try to understand the reason for the crowding. If a common pipe for riser clogged, you should immediately seek help to the plumbing. If the location is called, you need to try to establish its cause and choose the appropriate method of eliminating. If there is a dishes in the sink in the kitchen, it should be removed, and to extract the water from the shell. One of the cleaning methods implies the use of soda. Troubleshooting with soda Available, but will help only with small reasons.
To clean the pipe, follows 1/3 of the glass of soda pour 1/2 cup of vinegar, wait for a chemical reaction (the composition will begin to hiss) and pour into the hole for the drain. Do not mix the components in the glass, it is better to take a large container. After waiting for 10 minutes, shut hot water. Another option to clean the sink is to fall asleep into the drain hole of the glass of salt, after which it is boiling water. By the way, boiling water is a faithful assistant if fat is required from the inner walls of pipes. You just need to pour 1-2 liters of boiling water into the drain hole. If you have metal pipes, boldly leut boiling water if plastic – enough hot water, which flows from the crane.
Methods of elimination
Cleaning pipes should be carried out taking into account the nature of the blockage, only so you can guarantee a quick positive result. If you need to remove the wake-frozen chumps in the pipe, you can cast the best tool from blocks to the drain, but only cantuz will help eliminate it. That is why questions about what is better – special gels or vanatuz, deprived of meaning. For each type of blocking there is its means.
Often a small “plug” is accompanied by an unpleasant smell that comes from the drain hole. Mustard will help him help him. 150 Gy of dry powder should be filled into the drain and put water.
No less efficient and bleach (white, chlorine). It is better to use its most inexpensive version because it is more concentrated. The liquid is poured into the drain (200-300 ml), left for 10 minutes. After the specified time should be put into the pipe hot water.
Allocate various methods of eliminating “corks” in the sink.
- Mechanical. Suggest the creation of a hydraulic impact that pushes a blockage. Create it helps Vatuz or Screw agents, with which it is also possible to create a water blow. A mechanical tool that allows cleaning pipes is also a plumbing cable.
- Chemical. It is assumed to use different compositions on an acidic or alkaline basis, which dissolve internal sediments on the pipes, which contributes to the restoration of their passability. Chemicals can be shop or homemade, with their use should be preserved mucous and skin. Acid-based formulations may be too aggressive, so they are not recommended for plastic pipes.
- Folk – Mechanical and chemical methods that are carried out not specifically designed to eliminate blockages with instruments and compositions, and those found themselves at hand. For example, it is possible to make hydraulic blows with a stick to which rags are wound, and dissolve fat – citric acid.
Chemicals for cleaning the sink are produced in the form of liquids, tablets or powder. The second type usually requires more time to clean the cloud, manufacturers recommend to leave the tablet on the night. Use the sink at the time while the plot in the pipe is not recommended. Liquids are also poured into a drain hole in the scope indicated in the instructions. The manufacturer also writes the exposure time, the excess of which is fraught with an unforeseen result. Rinse chemical compounds need carefully, better hot water at maximum pressure. If the effect is not achieved after the first application or is not pronounced, you can repeat the procedure. To do this, use the same composition that was used for the first time. It is unacceptable to pour into the pipe all available means from blockages. Their components, contacting each other, can enter into chemical reactions that have an unpredictable result (for example, an explosion can provoke).
When using chemicals, it is also helpful to know the reason for the blockage. For example, to get rid of hair, soap-plated bathroom pipes will help compositions containing acids.
Today a large number of chemicals are produced for pipe cleaning. The most powerful and efficient is the domestic composition of “Mole”, more expensive imported analogue – “Tyr”, as well as “Mr. Muskul”. It is not recommended to use the products of unknown brands. “Mole” has an unpleasant smell, dangerous for a person. The tool is made on the basis of acid, so it is not recommended for cleaning aluminum and pipe plastics. For the latter, it is better to apply “Tyr” or “Mr. Muskul”. The leader among products of this action is tool Chirton “Clean drains” in the form of granules. One bag is enough for one-time use. The remedy falls asleep in the drain, the time of action is 15 minutes.
A similar composition, but more aggressive action possess the “Potchan” granules. The disadvantage is the caustic odor. It is recommended to apply to eliminate strong blockages. As prevention, you need to use a more “soft” product. For example, the gel “Sanoks: Clean Stoke”, the bottle of which is designed for 2 applications. With a large “cork”, it will not cope, but from a small congestion and as prevention it will become an excellent option.
Regardless of the drug used, it is important to follow the following recommendations:
- clearly execute the rules specified in the manufacturer’s instructions;
- protect the skin of the hands and respiratory organs, prevent the composition of the mucous membranes;
- Keep these funds from children;
- use formulations in well ventilated rooms;
- rush up with plenty of water;
- Do not use different compositions at the same time or each other.
The first assistants to remove the blockage are always available salt, soda and boiling water in the kitchen. You can strengthen the action by mixing salt with soda or adding vinegar to Sod. A loose plug can be deleted using a granulated washing powder. 3 dimensional spoons of powder fall asleep into a drain hole, after which water turns on for 5 minutes. Better if the water will be hot with maximum pressure.
If possible, the direction of the jet should go directly into the drain. Instead of water, you can use hot decoction after cooking potatoes. It will not only help dissolve fatty deposits, but also relieve unpleasant odor. If the specified methods are ineffective, and the sewage smell is standing throughout the house, you should place an application in the HEEK and call plumbing. Cause of poor smell in sewer pipes. When a specialist cleans them, you can repeat the action with chlorine.
The smell can appear in the formation of cracks on cast iron pipes. In this case, they are subject to replacement or (if the crack is small and single) the crack is sealed by a viscous consistency cement. Efficiency demonstrates another people’s method. 2 Tablets “Alka-Seltzer” (pharmacy drug from intoxication and hangover syndrome) are placed in a plum hole and poured a glass of vinegar. The reaction should go at least 2 minutes, after which it should be turned on the high pressure on the high water. This method allows you to get rid of a small tube and eliminate the unpleasant smell from the pipe.
Mechanical methods involve cleaning the pipe by creating a powerful hydraulic impact that literally knocked a plug. Usually for these purposes enjoy vests.
It is simple to use it:
- Drain hole closes a bowl of vanza. It is important that its diameter is larger than the drain dimer.
- Holding the instrument for the handle, make a few shoes towards the pipe, plum.
- Such movements need to be made 15-20, after which they dramatically pull the vantum up.
If water remained in the sink, you can not pull it before using it. The main thing is to locate the tool bowl so that it is closed with water. If there is an overflow hole in the sink or bathroom, it is necessary to close it (special cork or cloth), otherwise the cleansing will be useless. If the action does not bring the desired effect, a mixture of salt and soda into the drain hole, taken in equal proportions. After that, it is necessary to fill in a plum of 200 ml of hot water, wait 15 minutes and proceed to the breakdown of “traffic jams” by VATUZ.
If, after using the device from the drain hole, particles of garbage or other contaminants came out, they can not be riveted back, and it should be removed using a paper towel or toilet paper and discard into the trash can. This device is not the only tool that allows you to pierce the “plug”. Create a hydraulic impact can be without a vanza, for example, with a plumbing cable.
Its use implies the following actions:
- The cable must be poured into the hole for the drain until you feel that he rests on something.
- Fasting a blockage, start doing the movement up-down movement, simultaneously scrolling it.
- As soon as you feel that the cable slides on the pipe, not meeting the barriers, the block is eliminated.
Instead of a cable, if there is no apparent things that have a similar design, for example, the country’s suitable diameter hose. The mechanical methods of deliverance from traffic can include unscrewing and further cleaning of the siphon. First of all, it should be placed under the sink empty bucket. The next step is to remove the siphon using a wrench. Then, putting the glove or using a screwdriver, clean the inner surface of the siphon, rinse those parts that managed to remove (for example, cover). After that, assemble the siphon, check the device tightness.
- The most reliable preventive method is the obstacle to the falling of foreign objects and fat in the siphon of the sink. To do this, the sink in the kitchen needs to be equipped with a removable mesh, installed on the drain hole. It will prevent the penetration of food particles in stock.
- Washing utensils should be started with mechanical cleaning, i.e. food or welding particles. It is unacceptable to drain fat after frying or fat broth in the sink. Oily utensils first carefully wipe with a paper towel, which is thrown into the trash can.
- Similarly, you should approach the washing of the brewing kettle. Speit tea is thrown out, after which the walls of the dishes are wiping into a paper towel. Only after that you can proceed to washing. The fact is that, falling into the pipe, Chanks get stuck in her bends, and gradually this lump grows and becomes hard. As a result, a plug is formed, and in a hard-to-reach place.
- Similarly, a plug is formed when the paper or fillers in the Petry of Pets. First, they are easily flushed into the drain hole, but then we are settled on the walls of the pipe and increase in size. The result is the strongest blockage, from which not to get rid of chemicals.
- For washing dishes should use fat-soluble detergent. Take a rule, wipe the sink after each use and rinse it with hot water. As prevention daily in the evenings, it is recommended to include hot water on half a minute.
- Once a week in the sink you can wash off 3-5 liters of boiling water. After 5-10 minutes, you should use the VATUZ. Similar actions are easy to do it yourself, they will allow dissolve fatty traffic jams and get rid of small blockages.
- The effective prophylactic agent is the composition based on citric acid, soda and salt. The ratio of the last two components should be the same, citric acid – only half. The resulting composition is mixed and falling asleep into the pipe, after which a glass of boiling water is poured there. Wheeling 5 minutes, you should pull a large amount of warm water.
- You can also periodically use tools from blockages as prevention. They are recommended to use once or twice a year. Excessive use of aggressive chemicals can cause the destruction of plastic pipes, damage to the coating of the shell or bath. You need to fall asleep in the pipe for the night, and in the morning we wash away with plenty of water. This will help prevent traffic jams and quickly get rid of a small blockage.
- The installation of a special chopper in the sink will help to hit the food particles into the pipe. Before purchasing it, make sure that the selected device has compatible with the plumbing installed.
- If the cleaning of the pipes does not bring a positive result, it will be necessary to help plumbers. Most likely, it will use the automatic pipe cleaner or hydrodynamic nozzle.
