Oh, no! The sink is clogged up again. Do you have trouble every now and then with sinks that runs slow, or maybe they get clogged. Well, there are few simple things that you can do before you have to call on a professional.
One of the things I would like to start with, of course, is the old fashioned plunger. Why does the plunger work well with common clogs? All that you really have to do is give that material just a little gentle shrug down the drain, and away it goes.
How to use a plunger? Best way I feel, get the sink about a third of the way filled with water. Put the plunger in. Make sure it is seated really well on the bottom of the sink, and go ahead and give it a couple of quick strokes, and then pull it out, and see what happens.
Now, if that does not work, you might want to scoop all the water out of the sink as much as you can, and use a very common household product that might cut through the clog. What is it? Chlorine bleach, it works great. Okay, now, if that does not work, what I want you to do is to go ahead and get a regular drain cleaner. Now I have had the best success with the ones that are thick.
Look on the label that will show you that this is a very thick product. Pour it on the drain. Follow the directions, see what happens. If that does not work, your last source of do-it-yourself type thing is before you take everything apart, is to use some of the new foaming products that actually fill the entire pipe with the foam that helps to get rid of the clog. Just follow the directions. Open the pocket. Pour it into the sink. Pour in the hot water, and you are done.
Well, we waited the eight hours for the foaming drain cleaner, and it worked. It is beautiful. Oh, yeah. You can sometime clean these drains. Just follow the directions on the products. You might have some great success. If not, it is time to call the pro.
