There is nothing more frustrating than a blocked kitchen drain or toilet late on a Saturday night. Suddenly you are faced with the dilemma of either attempting to fix the problem yourself or calling in a professional plumber and paying the extra cost of a weekend service call. Most homeowners opt for the first option and attempt to fix the problem themselves. Homeowners assume that they can save money by doing a DIY drain cleaning job, but you could easily end up with a more serious and expensive problem on your hands. You really should think twice before attempting to unblock your own drains.
