How To Deal With A Blocked Soil Pipe?

November 29th, 2013 by

One of the services you will find at Emergency plumber is how to deal with a blocked soil pipe. If you are facing this kind of problem, it is better handled by emergency plumber technicians. You can also do it yourself if you follow important clues that will make the process easy. A blocked soil pipe can cause foul smells or make your toilet to drain slowly.  The process of unblocking a soil pipe is very unpleasant. If you have to do the job yourself, you must put on protective clothing and a facemask.

To start, you must unscrew the cleaning eye in order to insert the drain auger. The auger is very important if you want to locate the source of the destruction and blockage. Proceed and pass the auger into the stack until you are in a position to find out the source of the blockage. After this, crank the handle in order to engage it. The auger must be pushed inside until you can dislodge the obstruction. After this, it becomes easy and possible to clear the trapped water. Immediately you have established the blockage and pulled it out, you need to proceed to hose out the stack. The blockages are very dirty and pose danger to your health. It is important to wash and disinfect the entire place after you are through with this procedure.
