Walnut Creek, CA – How To Fix A Bathroom or Kitchen Sink That Is Slow To Drain

Common Issue 

Many people, at some point or another, find that a sink in their home is not draining properly. This can happen in any sink that is regularly used. Most common areas for a sink to drain slowly are in the bathroom or kitchen, as both sinks are likely used regularly. There are many reasons why a sink can be slow to drain, and, luckily, there is a way to fix the problem. In general, it’s always a good idea to call in a professional when you experience a plumbing issue. Even if the issue seems minor, as in the case of a slow draining sink, it’s still wise to call in the services of a professional plumber. If you try to fix even minor plumbing issues on your own, you run the risk of exacerbating the problem. This can lead to a costlier problem in the long run. By trying to save yourself time and money, you may actually end up costing yourself more on both fronts if you don’t call in an expert. To learn more about why sinks may be slow to drain and how they can be fixed, read on.

Blockage

A slow draining sink is most likely caused by a blockage. In the case of a kitchen sink, the blockage may be in the form of food remnants or congealed cooking fat. In the case of a bathroom sink, the blockage could be in the form of soap, other beauty products, or hair. In any case, the blockage needs to be cleared in order to restore the sink to proper working condition. As long as the sink is not draining properly, the sink will not be able to be used easily and the clog has the potential to increase with continued use.

Quick Fix

If your sink is not draining, you may look for a quick fix. Sometimes, reaching in with a thin object can pull up the clog. However, don’t reach too far into the drain, as this can damage the plumbing. Only remove the clog if it is plainly visible. Deeper clogs can be accessed by a professional using plumbing tools like a plumbing snake. You may also be tempted to use chemicals to clear a clog. However, think twice before doing this. Chemical clog removers can ultimately do damage to your plumbing lines. It’s always best to call in a pro.
