How To: Unclog a drain without Drano

Unclog a drain without Drano

This video details the procedure for unclogging a drain without the use of drain clearing chemicals. This procedure is intended to be used in the event of a drain being clogged with hair. A tool for this task would be a wire hanger, modified to have the bottom removed, and two ends fashioned into hooks. For this example, a drain with an unscrew-able top-cover is used. To begin, unscrew the top cover to reveal the washer and the drain. Remove the rubber washer to fully reveal the drain. Once the drain is revealed, remove the drain cover mount to allow for full access to the clog. When the mount is removed, insert the wire hanger and work it around inside of the drain to remove the accumulated hair. When this is completed, the drain should be unclogged.
