Sinks often get clogged up with debris or will drain slowly. Sometimes simply clearing out your plug hole or using a plunger can fix it.
But if you’ve tried that & you’re still experiencing issues with your sink not emptying, we have the equipment to clear your sinks & allow the system to drain without restriction.
Clear The Plughole
The first thing to do is to clear out your plughole as thoroughly as possible. Though this may not be the source of your blockage, this will make life easier when it comes to flushing the sink through.
Remove The Blockage
Before you get stuck into the U bend, it’s a good idea to flush through a solution to clear out any grease. The best solution to use is a simple mix of baking soda and vinegar. Pour the baking soda in first, followed by the vinegar. You should hear a slight fizz as the solution does its work. Wait a short time and then flush through with warm water.
Tackle The U-Bend
If your blockage is a bit more severe, you will need to drain the sink and examine the U bend. Take a look beneath the sink and locate the first bend in the pipe which falls down from the plug hole. Place a washing-up bowl or similar receptacle below the bend and slowly unscrew the U bend, allowing the water to drain at a steady pace.
