    Hi

    I have an outside drain in an enclosed alley way. Especially this year it seems to be draining slow especially on heavy downpours and creates a one inch of backed up water that eventually drains. I want to know the best way to unclog this drain. If a bacteria method is recommened is Bio-Clean still the way to go? I looked at older posts and it seems this product was the recommended one.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Get it cleaned mechanically, not with chemicals.

    Rent a power auger or a jetter. If you have a pressure washer, you can buy a jetter hose, maybe better to rent one, they are excellent but not very common. https://www.cloghog.com/
