Easily Clear Drain Blockages
These drain rods are ideal for clearing blockages from fairly straight, short-to-medium drainpipes. In this set are 10 x 1m drain rods. Simply screwed together in a clockwise motion, you can quickly achieve the appropriate length needed for your blockage. To use the rods, screw them together and push the rods through the pipe, steadily turning them clockwise to avoid them unscrewing whilst you push them in, until you can feel the blockage. Then use the rods to break through the blockage and loosen it. To remove the rods, continue turning them clockwise as you pull them back out of the drain. Follow this up with plenty of water to wash through any residue. Whilst clearing blockages or cleaning a drain, you should always wear PVC gloves, eye protection and overalls - as unblocking drains can be a messy business. There is also a chance of picking up an illness from drain waste. Never put your hands into the drain, to prevent the risk of becoming stuck or hurting yourself on something hidden within. Remember, prevention is always better than cure, so take care when flushing objects down plug holes and toilets. It is also advisable to regularly clear leaves and other foliage from outside drains, covering the entrance in mesh or netting to prevent a blockage developing inside the pipe.
