This infographic about how to unclog drains was submitted to us by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing! They also provided a brief description:

Our DIY infographic offers a solution to a very common household problem of clogged drains. In this infographic we give our tips on how you can effectively and cost efficiently unclog your drains. While many people would rush to call a plumber for this issue, there are simple solutions and procedures that you as a homeowner can take to try and remedy the issue yourself. Common entities clogging your drains include pesky items like grease, food, tissue, hair, and soap scum. Any home can fall victim to one of these common clogs and having any of these issues can pose a real hassle for everyone on the property. These simple tips could save you more than 300% the cost of calling a professional to fix the issue. In this infographic we share 7 methods we have found that can effectively help alleviate this problem, as well as the cost to implement each one. Clogged drains cause long-term problems for your water, and could become the cause of much discomfort to your home. We want to help our viewers long-term, so we also added a few prevention tips at the end of this infographic to help with long-term drain health. Simple lifestyle changes could be the difference in protecting your home from this household nuisance.

This infographic gives some useful tips for tackling and preventing drain clogs in your home or business. The use of pictograms gives visual information that’s faster to process than text alone. The cost breakdowns help viewers gauge which solutions are in their budget. It would be great if the illustrations were to show more about how to use each solution (for example, a cross-section of a drain with a drain-cleaning brush in it, or a step-by-step illustration of how to disassemble a P-trap. This would allow the designer to cut down on text and show the solutions more visually instead.

A quick note about proofing: be sure to proof thoroughly, and get a second or third set of eyes to do so! The second unclogging method displays baking soda, salt, and boiling water, but the description says: “Combine the salt, vinegar, and boiling water.”

In all I’d give this infographic a B- because it uses visual aids but could reduce the reliance on text even more through more detailed illustrations.
