How to Get Back Your Kitchen Sink Running Fast Again

When you have several dishes to wash and kids to watch out for, having a clogged kitchen sink adds to the stress. Facing this situation is not easy for moms out there who do not have the right tools to take care of the problem and who do not have the knowledge on how to solve the problem. You will for sure be very annoyed when the stinking water in the sink won’t drain even leaving it for some time. You could be in a situation when even with the advice of some friends and families, still you are not successful with the problem. And so, it might help you to know some of the tips to follow in order to get your sink back up and running very quickly.

Our first recommendation is as easy as calling a plumber. This means, instead of being problematic about it, to avoid stress on your part and make things easier, you contact a local plumber to do the job. Finding good plumbers is easy, and you can do this by looking at various lists in your area. A simple job of fixing a clogged kitchen sink will not cost you a lot of money so this should not be a problem to you.

The second pointer that you can try first even before calling your plumber is to try a master plunger and see if this can solve the problem. This tool is readily available in any store at a very affordable price, and so it is advisable to have this ready in your house. You can use the plunger by covering the drain hole with it completely, then work it up and down until the suction movement will break the clogs in your pipe.

Next tip is to remove the pipe and clean it. First is put a bucket below the sink to catch the water, unfasten the pipe and remove it. A wire hanger can also be used to work through the piping and just see to it that no obstructions are present in the pipe. In situations when even with these simple tools there is still a clog up, then the problem could be in the wall or below your building, which in this case you have to use a drain snake or an auger. This tool is also readily available in stores that you can buy, or if not, have your plumber bring it and use it to solve your problem if need be.

In the first place, having a reliable garbage disposal below your sink is what should have been done to avoid this kind of problem. You can break through big food particles before it goes down the pipe thus avoid a clogged sink.
