Uncloging Drain

A good, old fashioned plumber's helper will generally unplug minor drain stoppages, but every so often a really heroic jam-up proves too much for the plunger on a stick. In that case, try this: cut the valve stem (centered on a six" diameter circle of rubber) from an old automobile inner tube. Attach a hand pump, wet the rubber and press the assembly firmly over the troublesome drain while someone else operates the pump. A few solid strokes should clear all but the most tightly wedged stoppages.
