People get clogs in their drains and sewers frequently, and sometimes the drains and sewers can be unstopped with a plunger, sometimes with a snake, and other times, a plumber is needed. If a plunger doesn’t do the job, the next method to try to use before calling a plumber who may be expensive is to snake the area with a line snake. For do-it-yourself customers who want to try Line Snaking in Corona CA, here are some tips to keep in mind. If these tips don’t work, a professional plumber should be called.
Using a Snaking Auger
A snaking auger
is a flexible cable that reaches long into a drain or sewer with an
uncoiled spring or a small auger on one end and a handle on the other
end. Although it looks simple enough to use, if a novice is not sure
how to handle the tool, there could be damage to the pipes or leaks
could be created. The handle is normally cranked out, pushing the
auger end of the snake into the drain or sewer line, attempting to
dig through the obstruction.

It could be
helpful to the user to remove the P-trap, which is the piece of pipe
that is curved (if you are snaking a sink), or the customer could
remove the trap arm. Removing the P-trap or the trap arm can make the
access easier for the user to get to the obstruction (unless the
obstruction was in the trap arm or P-trap, all the better). Trying to
remove the obstruction in the area should meet with minimal
resistance, but the user should not try to force the auger, lest the
drain or line is ruined.
