How to Clear a Blocked Sink?

Q  I have a Blocked Sink. How do I clear a Blocked Sink or Basin?

A. Plunger or sani snake 

Try a trusty pressure plunger first. If this doesn’t work it is most effective to use a plumbers snake. Pouring chemicals typically do not fix the cause of the blockage and can be extremely dangerous if used incorrectly.

Pull out stopper and hair
Most sink blockages / basin blockages are from hair, makeup and soap buildup that is caught just below the stopper and can be cleared out by pulling out the stopper and then the hair. Most of the time, you do not even need to disassemble the P-trap. 

If you think your water is draining out of your basin / sink slower than usual, this is usually the first sign of a sink / basin blockage. Either give the DIY methods above a go, or call WOODS Plumbing on 0401 533 706, and we will get that sink unblocked or basin unblocked super fast.
