Unclogging a Bathroom Drain?

how to Unclogging a Bathroom Drain? we have 2 bathroom upstair and now if we used both of the bathroom the same time, the water may leak out somewhere from one of the bathroom floor. and when use one of the toilet, the other toilet will have some air bubbles keep coming out.

i tried the 2L liquid which i purchased from bunning which stated can discolve the hair, pour 1L into it and wait 2 hours, but still can't fix it.

anything can do ourself or should I just find a local plumber? i worry about the cost. thanks.

    Yes

    i worry about the cost

    The damage that leaking water can do will outweigh the cost of a plumber in the long run

    Use a snake or unscrew the s-bends and empty them.

    You need to keep waiting acid go away now before snake and electric drill end of snake spinning on buying Bunning there.

    Push out hair but problem us leaking. Maybe tight pipe fixing leak too because I think you plunger loose piping too.

      I asked my mate at the University linguistics department to translate-

      "You need to wait until the acid has left the pipes. Then you can use a snake. You can buy a snake attachment from Bunnings. Look for a snake attachment which attaches to an electric drill.

      This solution may clear the hair but leaves you with the bigger problem of the leak.

      I suggest you you attempt to tighten all pipe connections e.g. the pipe connections around the S-Bend. Your leaking problem may have been caused by too much plunger action"

    You have a leak so you put drain cleaner, why???

    Call a plumber, what ever it costs should be cheaper than doing more damage then calling them.w

    You need to renovate the bathroom.

    vinegar and bi-cab is your cheapest option.

    Youtube is your mate too.

    Did this over the weekend as the shower was draining very slowly. Bought a 6m snake / cleaner from bunnings with a handle at the end for spinning. Pulled out a disgusting clump of gunk / hair about 20cm long.

    Drain works fine now. For sink blockages, you might need a smaller diameter snake.

      is the plumber use the 6m snake too?

      get quotes from a website which refer to some plumbers to contact me, the person who came ask for 650, finally negotiate to bring it down to 250 and then what he did is to open the pipe cover outside of my home, put 2L liquid x 2 + 2 bottle of 500ml crystal in, then he not even wait any minutes and immediately pull the 5m snake to the pipe and our my garden hose to force water in.

      however he said the issue will come back very soon as he notices some root coming out from pipe, so looks like it blocked by tree root from my neighbour….

      However based on what he did, i dont think he a professional plumber.
