Answer: pour hydrochloric acid diluted with water in the blocked pipes or replace them.

If you have carried out work at your home recently, it is possible that cement has engulfed in your pipes in liquid form, that it has dried afterwards to end up clogging your drain pipes. This is why you should have blocked your pipes as a precaution during the work. Before undertaking pipe replacement or hiring a specialist company, which will cost you some money, try this option. Here's what to do: pour hydrochloric acid diluted with water into clogged pipes (don't forget to wear a mask for vapors), and see if it works. This method is only possible if your pipes are not themselves concrete, of course. Otherwise, contact a professional.
