Blocked Sink

Many factors can block a sink. Food bits, hair, or even tree roots can get into the drains. Clearing a blocked sink, drain or toilet is always a mess. Here are some ways you can do to unblock your sink:

Why is My Toilet Blocked?

Obstructions cause blocked toilets. However, unless you see it occur, sometimes you will not know your toilet is blocked for some time. While in most cases a blockage is paramount, others slowly build up over time.

Immediate blockages are characterized by water rapidly gathering in the bowl and not washing back down the drain when the toilet is flushed. Frequently these types of blockages are local, meaning that they are located right beneath or within the toilet. On the other hand, a slowly built up blockage will look alike in that the water will fill to the top of the bowl and drain much quieter than normal when the toilet is flushed.

Objects that cause an instant local blockage may include:

● Using boiling water
If it is only soap or fat, you could try to unblock it with boiling water, but be mindful not to burn yourself or melt the sink seal. Using natural enzymes is also an excellent place to start. In the following order, try to put half cup of salt, half cup of bi-carb, one cup of vinegar, and one cup of hot water. This method is absolutely harmless for you, the sink, pipes, and the environment. You can repeat as frequently as required. However, it will have a limited effect on severe blockages.

● Using a plunger
It is the force of the plunger’s push that pushes air through the pipe to clear the clog. Prior to plunging cover the overflow with a damp cloth, make sure a drain is sealed so that it can force the air out into the drain blockage. If you have a double kitchen sink, make sure first that you block off the second drain to guarantee sufficient pressure. Try this several times before you throw your hands in the air.

● Using a Drain Auger
You can hire a Drain Auger (Plumber's Snake or Electric Eel) from the majority of hire places. However, be aware that these need a bit of skill and can be quite hazardous if not used rightly. These will unblock just about anything like tree roots.

● Checking your U-bend of the sink
Before you proceed with all of the methods above, check that the blockage is not in the U-bend of the sink. Usually, food blockages have not got further than the drain straight beneath the sink. Place a bucket under the drain to catch any water or waste, unscrew the two connections and unblock the U-shaped pipe and give it a quick clean.
