Hello, my name is Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors and today, we'll be discussing slow draining toilets. For this job you're going to need a couple of tools. They include a pipe snake or pipe cleaner and a plunger. A snake or pipe cleaner has a very long cable on it that you place into the pipes of what you're trying to clean. Then, what you do is you simply rotate it and this grabs or releases anything that's maybe clogging it. Go ahead and lift up the toilet seats. Pull out roughly about three to five feet of cable and put it right into the hole on the bottom of the toilet. Now, as you're going down, you want to slowly twist it to make sure that you're getting anything that might be corroded around the walls of your toilet. Now that we are done snaking or relieving all the corrosion on the inside of the pipes, you're going to simply push the snake back into itself. Now, that we are done with that, we're going to go ahead and flush the toilet and as we flush the toilet, we want to go ahead and plunge it just in case there's any of that loose stuff that's still on the outside of the pipes. Go ahead and flush it now and plunge. You want to plunge as fast as you can to ensure that everything is relieve from the interior wall pipes. I'm Josh with Lighty Contractors and that's how you repair slow draining toilets.
