Step 5 – Draw handle out of body

Draw the handle out of the body, to draw water into the body of the plunger.

Press down on the plunger handle firmly

Step 6 – Plunge handle down

Forcefully press down on the plunger handle. This will release a jet of water down the drain to shift the blockage.

When using the hydrojet pump ensure you have a tight seal over the drain, as when you push the handle down  you don’t want the water escaping!
Check to see if blockage has cleared

Step 7 – Check flow

To check the flow of water, pour water in to the sink, and watch to see if it flows away down the drain (if the blockage is clear you will see the water level drop).

If there is still a blockage present, repeat steps 4 to 6.
