Our drain opening services fixes even the toughest drain clogs and includes a free camera inspection – a technique that uses a high-tech camera to pinpoint and identify the cause of the clog. Plus, we offer same-day service for our rooter services, so you don’t have to wait.

A drain clog can be caused by a range of issues and some of the more common problems include:

  • Grease
  • Oil
  • Food
  • Soap
  • Hair
  • Foreign objects

Our drain opening offers more benefits than just an unclogged drain. It also:

  • Gets rid of odors caused by the clog
  • Can prevent a more costly repair in the future
  • Can result in less residue in sinks and tubs by making drainage more efficient
  • Can improve drainage for other drains in your home (because one blockage can affect multiple drains)

How to Naturally Unclog Drains

When you’re stuck with a clogged drain and don’t want to use chemicals to clear it, you can make your own drain cleaner at home. You can use what’s already in your cupboard to clear away build up. Not only will this save you money but it will also be gentler on your drains.

How to Clean Drains with Baking Soda & Vinegar:

  • Pour boiling hot water down the drain first to loosen buildup
  • Pour one cup of baking and a solution of one cup water / one cup vinegar down the drain
  • Cover the drain plug and wait 5 to 10 minutes
  • Pour boiling hot water down the drain again to clear the clog

Baking soda and vinegar work together to break down clogs and clear your drains.

How to Unclog a Sink

Whether you’re washing your hands are cleaning up after dinner, the last thing you want to see if water filling your kitchen sink. Before you panic or start reaching for the Drano, there are natural ways you can unclog the sink.

How to Clear Drains Without Chemicals:

  • Use Plunger: Many assume the plunger is just for the toilet but can also be used to clear out clogs in a kitchen sink. This can dislodge any food build-ups or particles blocking the pipe.
  • Pour Boiling Water: If you have grease build-up, you can also trying pouring half a gallon of boiling water down the drain. If you have PVC pipes, don’t do this as the boiling water can melt or damage the plastic.
  • Drain Snake: This is a fan favorite for plumbers. This tool has a coiled spiral snake that reaches into the drain and can dislodge what’s blocking the pipes.
  • Baking Soda & Vinegar: As mentioned above, the combination of baking soda and vinegar can disintegrate some sink clogs. It’s a great alternative to chemical cleaners like Drano.

If you’ve tried these methods and still need help clearing a clog, turn to the skilled plumbers at Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc. for reliable drain cleaning services in Knoxville.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

Amy C.

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
