Blockage in sewer drain - cannot clear blockage with rods

Postby kat.kit.25 » Fri Jul 18, 2014 8:38 pm

There is a blockage in my main sewer drain. I have located the clog to between 2 of the outside access drain points. The problem I have is the access point before the clog I can't get the rods down. They seem to get stuck in a u bend or on a joint. The access point after can only be roded in the opposite direct. Does anyone have any suggestions or clever tips? Thanks in advance.

try using a garden hose, push in as far as the blockage and turn it on

There are some biodegradable chemicals available in market to clear up clogged drains.
Search for one on amazon or ebay, it will help you to get drain clog clear.
