QUESTION: What do I do if a pipe snake got stuck in my drain after it was already clogged?


You will need to try to remove the clog through the branch line. To do this, you will need to open the access panel so that you can remove the trap. It is possible that the overflow pipe may not be large enough to allow you to clear the branch line. The turn through the trap is also very tight, which means the snake can become stuck.

If the snake stretches and breaks off inside the pipe, you will need to call a professional for assistance.
