How to use a hose

Regular cleaning of drains is important to prevent clogs and other plumbing issues. To clean a drain with a hose, first, be sure to identify the problem location. Pour water into the drain and turn on the faucet until it’s full of water. Next, hold the end of the hose close to the bottom of the drain and use your other hand to push down on it firmly while still holding onto the end of the hose. When you see bubbles coming up from below, release your grip on the hose and start spraying away. Continue spraying until all the bubbles have gone and the water is clear. Finally, pour a pot of boiling water down the drain to clean it out.

What do you do if the drain is blocked

When it comes to cleaning drains, it’s important to know the basics. If the drain is blocked, unblock the water with a plunger before using a bucket or container to scoop out the water and debris. If the drain is clogged with grease, cockroaches, or other large objects, use a plunger to push them out of the way and then pour boiling water down the drain. Let it sit for 30 seconds before using a plunger to suction up all the water and debris. Finally, use cleaner and hot water to clean everything up.
