Black Mechanical Clean Out Plug

Assuming you are referring to a clean out plug for a drain: A clean out plug is a device that is used to seal off the end of a pipe. It is typically made of rubber or plastic and has a threaded design so that it can be screwed into the end of the pipe.

The clean out plug is used to keep debris and other objects from entering the pipe and clogging it.

Black Mechanical Clean Out Plug Hold

If your home is like most, the main sewer line enters your house underground and then comes up into the basement or crawl space. This is where you’ll find a clean-out plug. The clean-out plug is a threaded cap that screws into a fitting called a clean-out fitting, which is attached to the sewer pipe.

The purpose of the clean-out plug is to give you access to the sewer line so that you can clear it of any clogs. The first thing you need to do if you think there’s a clog in your sewer line is locate the clean-out plug. In most cases, it will be located near where the sewer line enters your home.

Once you’ve found it, unscrew the cap and use a plunger to try and clear the clog. If that doesn’t work, you may need to rent a power auger from a hardware store or plumbing supply store. With the auger, insert the coil end into the clean-out opening and turn on the power switch.

Slowly feed the auger cable down the drain until you feel resistance. That’s usually when you know you’ve reached the clog. Start cranking on the handle to break up and remove whatever is causingthe blockage.

Black Mechanical Clean Out Plug

If your home has a sewage clean-out, it’s most likely a black mechanical clean-out plug. These plugs are made of durable materials like PVC or ABS plastic, and they’re designed to create a watertight seal in the clean-out opening. While the black mechanical clean-out plug is usually reliable, there are a few things that can cause it to fail.

One is simply age – over time, the material can degrade and become brittle. Another is if the threads on the plug get damaged or stripped. If your black mechanical clean-out plug needs to be replaced, you’ll first need to shut off the water supply to the home (or at least to the section of piping that includes the clean-out).

Then, unscrew the old plug using a wrench or pliers. Be careful not to damage the threads as you remove it. Once the old plug is out, take it with you to your local hardware store so you can find an exact replacement.

Once you have a new plug, screw it into place hand-tight – again, being careful not to damage the threads.
