But the problem of drains blocked can be solved quite easily as there are many methods that can be used to have them cleared. The pipes that take down the water from the bathrooms are usually designed to take down only water.

One of the first actions that need to be taken is to identify the cause of the toilet block. This can be done by either removing the main plug of the pipe that blocks the flow of water. Sometimes you might need to remove various parts of the pipe to find the blocked area.

If you are unable to identify the source of the blocked drain by just looking at it you can use a long wire or a thin rod that will go down into the pipe and then you will be able to understand the position in the pipe where the clogging is taking place.

By using a wire that bent like a hook on one end you might be able to pullout the source of the blockage to clear blocked drains. Using a plunger is another good method but can be effective only in cases of minor blocks.
