Drain clogs are just about as common a problem as can affect the plumbing in a home. The usual culprits for clogged or slow drains are hair clogs, FOG (fats, oils, and grease), hard water minerals, soap scum, food, and more serious problems with the sewer line. If you can’t clear out a clog using a plunger or a basic hand-cranked drain snake, then it’s recommended you call for a plumber in San Juan Capistrano, CA who’s licensed and equipped to take care of the problem.

In this post, we’re going to look at some of these odder sources of blocked drains. Some may sound bizarre, but any of them could happen to you—and any of them we can fix.
