Unblock traps

One of the most common blockages is in traps. Snakes can unclog many types of traps, but sinks usually need to be dismantled for the blockage to be removed.

Materials and Tools:

  • bowl
  • bucket
  • old toothbrush
  • replacement washers


  • Undo the sink trap and position a bowl beneath it to catch any water.
  • Remove debris with an old toothbrush and wash the trap in a bucket of clean water.
  • Replace the trap. It is worth replacing worn washers while the trap is disassembled to prevent future leaks.
