Clogged Sinks – A Common Plumbing Problem

 

Have you ever seen a bathroom sink half-filled with dirty soapy water which is unable to drain away no matter how long you left it standing there? 

 

Or were you frustrated when you are not able to wash the dirty dishes quickly due to the slow draining action of your kitchen sink?

Clogged sinks are one of the most common plumbing issues households encounter, in particular, clogged kitchen sinks.

Initially the speed which water gets drained down the sink gets slower and slower, and eventually it would not drain off at all.  To make matters worse, the dirty water overflows from the sinks or from the sink trap, and floods the floor.

Clogged kitchen sinks create an even bigger mess as the water has a layer of oil, some food particles and is often foul smelling.

Why Your Sink Gets Clogged

Clogged sinks are often caused by obstructions by objects such as hair, food particles, solidified fats or foreign bodies in the drainage pipe.

Bathroom sinks are often caused by a buildup of soap and hair in the trap or fixture drain line.

In order to remove these clogs, you will need to trace where the clogs occur, at the sink traps or further down the drainage pipe.

3 Reasons Water Is Draining Away Slowly

  1. The first thing to check is your sink water stopper.  Make sure that it is clean and do not have wads of hair or bits of food particles stuck to it.
  2. Next, try using a plunger to break up the clog and force it down the sink drain.
  3. If the clog still does not clear, use a plumbing snake to dislodge difficult clogs at those sharp bends in the drain line.

Clearing That Sink Choke

3 Simple Ways To Unclog Your Sink

  1. The first thing to check is your sink water stopper.  Make sure that it is clean and do not have wads of hair or bits of food particles stuck to it.
  2. Next, try using a plunger to break up the clog and force it down the sink drain.
  3. If the clog still does not clear, use a plumbing snake to dislodge difficult clogs at those sharp bends in the drain line.

Alternatively, you can use a chemical drain cleaner to unblock the drainage pipes.  If the clog occurs at the sink trap, you can dismantle the sink trap, clear the cIog and reassemble the sink trap.

For clogs that occur further down the drainage pipe, you may have to clear the clog from the sink hole.
