Shop Vac for Backed Up Drains

If you have a stopped up bathroom or kitchen sink, try this before you buy drain opener. Use your shop vac to try to clean out the drain. Hold a rag against the overflow and, if necessary, hold one wrapped around the hose end that goes against the drain. Tuck the rag tight into the drain, the drain opening is larger than the hose and you will lose suction otherwise.

Turn it on and let it go! It will also safely suck all the water out of the drain, in case you do need the chemicals after all.
