How to deal with a clogged bathroom sink?

Αποφράξεις-Αντωνίου

As we all know, plumbing in the house is connected to each other at some point. When there is a clogged bathroom sink the problem may be in his own drain pipe or in another pipe of the plumbing of the house. So, call Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου for a quick and effective solution.

This leads to a general plumbing problem and you should immediately call a professional plumber to flush out the bathroom sink. Our article helps you on how to deal with a clogged bathroom sink.

On the one hand the bathroom, where the sinks can be clogged with hair, soap or cosmetic residues and on the other hand the sinks that have food, straws, sticks and various items from the kitchen that you can not even imagine. Somehow they clog and make your daily life difficult. The solutions are usually instantaneous and cause further damage, as you are not able to know the exact and correct management of your constructions, in case of a problem.

 

 Check these types of plumbing fixtures

 

  • Toilet
  • Bathtub
  • Shower

Do all these drains make a strange sound when the water is running? Then, most likely, you have a problem in the main sewer pipe.

 

Water accumulates when you use the house plumbing

 

1. Rinse the toilet

Do you start not absorbing water in the bathtub or shower drain? This means that the water is trying to escape, but is blocked by a dam in the sewer line. So, it goes back to the lowest point, which is usually a shower drain.

2. Use the washing machine

Is the washer hose leaking or is your wall starting to overflow with water? This means that the water is trying to escape, but a dam blocks it and forces it to find another way to escape.

3. Pour water into the bathroom sink

Does the water in the bath sink increase instead of being absorbed? Most likely, there is a barrier in the sewer line.

With wire or steel

 

Aside from soap scum, a second reason for clogging the siphon in your sink or bathtub is hair falling out of the water. To remove them and unscrew your pipe without much effort, take a wire or straighten a wire hanger and, with pliers, make a hook on the edge. Then, put it deep in the tube and with the hook try to pull the hairs out.

Of course, this job can be done even better by a regular commercial steel, ie the wire spiral with the handle that reaches very deep into the pipe and, as we turn it, traps hairs and other debris bringing them out with it.

 

Call a Professional Plumber

 

The first thing you need to do is turn off the main water supply to your home. To do this, look for the water shut-off valve, which is usually located:

  • at the basement
  • near the water heater
  • inside the garage
  • in a water box outside your home, close to the road

Second, call a professional plumber from Αποφράξεις Αθήνα, who will inspect and clean the sewer lines. There is usually a two-step process that plumbers use to clean a clogged bathroom sink or to check all the sewer lines in your home.

Plumbing snake for disassembling a bathroom sink

 

The plumber will clean the bathroom sink line using the “plumber snake” to dismantle the dam. If this does not have the expected effect then it will proceed to the next step.

 

Thermal Camera for disassembling a bathroom sink

 

The plumber will use a thermal camera to look deep into the sewer line, identify exactly where the problem is and discuss alternatives with you. The dam could be caused by rinsing objects, or by old pipes that are no longer able to handle the flow of water.

If there are trees on your property, there is a chance that the roots may have grown in underground pipes, causing the blockage.Such problems are usually not easy to identify with simple methods, so a special camera is used.

Trust experienced professionals, plumbers for the repair and maintenance of the plumbing installation of your home or business.

 

What about chemical blockers?

 

Do not use them. Chemical cleaners are neither environmentally friendly nor sewage pipes and the hydraulic system in general. In addition, they can become very dangerous when used. I strongly recommend that you use the technical cleaning instructions described in this guide instead of caustic dry cleaners.

Chemical cleaners are rarely effective in persistent conditions. After a failed chemical cleaning attempt, you will be left with a sink full of toxic chemicals that you will have to remove by hand into a bucket and then throw them in the toilet.
