When the drain is clogged and you have tried everything to unplug it, the next step is usually to call the plumber and have him snake it out, which immediately is going to cost quite a bit to just get him out there. I was trying to figure out if there was anything else a person could do rather than resorting to the plumber, and I found this awesome DIY zip tie drain snake by Camera Ray, on YouTube, and I was excited to try this. This idea is so cheap and easy, there really is no downside to this drain snake idea.
In this awesome DIY zip tie drain snake by Camera Ray, on YouTube, you will learn how to make his simple drain snake in a few easy steps. You will begin by making little diagonal cuts all along the sides of the zip tie. You may even want to get a small pair of pliers to bend them out a little making hooks. Just like a hangnail always catches knitted fabric or hair, these small cuts will catch and collect any excess debris that might be clogging the drain.
Then you will just poke the long zip tie, that has the nicks all down the side down the drain and work it all around. Then, you will easily be able to pull out all of the debris clogging your drain.
This drain cleaning method is so cheap and easy, you really can’t go wrong giving this a try.
