How to clear pipe blockage ?
You can try This, If you want the reaction to take place in the blocked zone, pour in a cup of vinegar or baking soda and leave it to soak for at least an hour to take effect, then pour out the cup and vinegar with hot water . This triggers a chemical reaction that dissolves the blockage, and when the water drains off slowly, there are no symptoms, except when it does not drain off at all in some cases.
Try pouring hot water from a great height, as this increases the strength that can help break the blockade. Just be careful if you pour it from too high a height, splash the water back down and you can burn yourself. Try also pouring boiling water into the clogged area with the plug still in, then release the plug. This can increase measurement in large congested areas, but simply do not pour too much water, otherwise there may be damage to the pipes.
If none of these tips work, it is time to get the trusty drainage specialist out, but the effectiveness depends on the severity and location of the blockage. If the drainage specialist is not an option, try a long, flexible rod that is designed to bypass the bend in the tube, push it so far that you hopefully reach the blockage and have enough force to break through the clogged area.
You can buy these in most DIY stores such as Screwfix or B&Q.
