Can you use Draino or Baking Soda and Vinegar to unclog a drain?

These methods to unclog a drain are temporary at best. They may be effective at punching a small hole in the clog which will allow the water to drain out past the clog and the drain to begin slowly draining again. But, this temporary fix is likely to quickly clog again. Our opinion is based on our experience over many years but if anybody can find a video showing Draino or a baking soda/vinegar combo completely dissolving a clog in a drain we would love to see it!

What do plumbers use to clean drains?

We use a mechanical snake. This type of drain-cleaning machine is driven by an electric motor and feeds a cable out of a drum. At the end of the cable, we can attach various cutting tools to suit the type of clog we are dealing with. The cable is fed through your drain or sewer line until we encounter the clog. We run the machine until it completely breaks through the clog. Water is run through the line as we snake to wash away any debris. We then back the cable out and rerun the snake another 1-3 times until we are satisfied that the line is completely clear. A mechanical snake is the best way to ensure that your drain or sewer line is completely clog-free from end to end.
