By exercising caution to keep hair, grease, and oil from going down the drain and taking preventative maintenance measures, homeowners can keep the clogged drains they experience to a minimum.
In this brief video clip, consumer advice expert Angie Hicks of Angie’s List offers tips for cleaning drains regularly to keep them clear. She also discusses why plungers are not only for toilets, describing how they can be used to unclog bathtub drains.

Sacramento home and business owners who are connected to a municipal sewage treatment system depend on sewer lines to carry wastewater from their homes to the nearest sewage treatment plant. A clogged line prevents the smooth flow of wastewater from a home’s main sewer line to the city line and can result in sewage backup. If you detect any of the following unpleasant circumstances on your property, you may have a clogged sewer line and will need to contact a plumber as soon as possible.
The inevitable result of a clogged sewer line that is not repaired early enough, sewage backup is a clear indicator that there is a problem with your sewer main or a secondary sewer line in your home. If water seeps up through your bathtub drain after you flush the toilet or you hear a gurgling sound coming from drains in your home after running the dishwasher or washing machine, you should contact your plumber right away.
If the putrid stench of raw sewage makes a presence in your home, it could be a sign of a clogged sewer line. Smells of raw sewage often accompany sewage backup, and typically come from the drains in the home.
Slow-Draining Plumbing Fixtures
If not one but several of the plumbing fixtures in your home start to drain more slowly than usual, it could be a sign of a clogged main sewer line. Inspect your drains and plumbing fixtures for signs that the drainage issues are caused by something other than sewage backup, and contact a plumber if you cannot find any or are unable to clear the drains on your own.
