How Do You Clear or Unclog a Drain?
The sad fact of the matter is that when it comes to drainage problems in dwellings, far too many people resort to using chemical cleaners, harsh stuff like Drano, when they are dealing with a clogged drain. Your friends here at Narrow Path Plumbing are your best local drain expert, drain blockage removal team. We, like all the other experts if you check around, strongly discourage the use of chemical cleaners like Drano and other off-brand drain cleaners because everything that is poured down your drain pipe eventually ends up in our water supply, which is very unhealthy even when it has been processed.
These harsh chemicals are known to cause damage to your pipes that you’d be surprised about if you knew. A far better alternative to chemical cleaners you’re hoping to dissolve drain blockages with is simple. We suggest natural enzymes. Natural enzymes for drainage problems work to break up the obstruction in your drain and clear it away without damaging the drain itself or tainting the water.
Know When to Call an Expert for Your Drain Blockage, Drain Cleaning Job
There are times when natural enzymes aren’t sufficient for bigger clogs in the drainline and you need a professional in the Dayton, Cincinnati, Miami Valley, Southwest Ohio area. We are your local drain cleaning experts and we’re always available to assist you. When our expert local plumbers arrive, they’ll clean out your drain using one of the following methods:
- Hydro jetting
- High pressurized water blasts
- Snaking/preventative snaking
- Hydrochloric Acid or muriatic acid (which is more naturally occurring)
These methods are all very much environmentally friendly and will not hurt your pipes or cause the corrosion you’d find when using Drano, which is highly corrosive and toxic.
Why Does The Main Drain Line Get Clogged in a Home?
All residential drains in all dwellings are connected to the main line. This mainline travels from your home all the way underground to the city sewer line or some sort of septic tank. Because this essential drain line carries waste from all your lines (your washing machine, kitchen, bathrooms, and such) it can easily form a blockage in your main line. To make matters worse, tree roots can grow and penetrate your main line, which can grow and make it far more susceptible to clogs and backups and all types of drainage problems.
Signs of a Main Sewer Line Clog
- Slow drain flow and backed up drains
- Water rises from your drains when you flush the toilet
- Gurgling sounds coming from toilet toilet
- Sewage is in your sewer clean out

How often should I clean my drains?
What is the best drain cleaning method?
Often called a drain snake, an auger unrolls into your drain and pushes the clog through the system. In other situations, especially for pre-emptive cleaning, you should consider a high-pressure water jet. Again, you should always let a professional handle this for you. High-pressure water jets move along clogs, but they also take care of buildup around the edges of your pipes. That includes grease, hair, and other items that may lead to a blockage eventually.
