Sometimes clogs are caused by something which are lodged deep within the pipes of our homes. Over the counter products cannot solve this type of problem.

The method used by plumbers is hydro jetting where high pressure water is sent through the pipes to remove any sludge or grime build up or foreign objects that may be blocking the flow. You can also use drain snakes but this solution is only temporary; a stronger method is the use of hydro jetting which can remove anything in the pipes the obstructs the flow of water.
