However, do you really know how to correctly maintain your Heat Pipe or plumbings? Since there are so many plumbings used in homes, it is necessary for us to learn some plumbing skills. In fact, one such plumbing skill can be the chore of learning to unclog toilets and also main water drains. On top of that many of these plumbing skills are also relevant and useful to heating system repairs especially when involved in repairs of hot water heating system.
In general, the first step is to bail out the excess water from a clogged toilet and use plunger with its cap fully extended. Do not flush the toilet which may waste water and eventually cause a flood in your toilet. It is best practice according to most plumbers and plumbing and heating contractors not to rush and use chemical type cleaners. It is fast and easy, and so it seems, but false economy in the heating and plumbing trades strong caustic chemicals used to clear pipes are a quick fix-yet they are corrosive to piping and toxic to people and their pets. On top of that if the pipe or water bowls areas do not drain, you are left with a chemical soup to deal with and drain out anyways.
However, if the plunger does not work after several tries and good attempts next attempt to snag out the obstruction with a hook fashioned out of a simple standard wire hanger. Most likely you will have any number of wire hangers hanging up in your bedroom or front hall closet or closets. Alternatively you can cover your hand with a plastic garbage bag and try to pull out the obstruction causing item out of the pipe manually by yourself. This is yet another "old plumber's trick".
Then, with any luck now, and with your basic plumbing skills your toilet or main drain should be fully unclogged and running smooth. The plumbing or heating pipe obstruction is gone. You can pat yourself on the back for accomplishing the task and as well being able to keep some of your hard earned cash in your wallet and pocketbook.
