Naturally your sink trap will help this becoming a thing of the past, but if you do have a blocked sink you obviously will be trying to avoid calling out a plumber and most of the time you shouldn’t have to, but if you are faced with a sink full of water that won’t drain away what should you do? unblock a sink at home

You will want to unblock a sink at home quickly because it soon leads to slow draining water, and bad smells but it’s all to easy just through everyday use to end up with a blocked sink… certainly the easiest way to deal with this is to ideally bale the water in the sink into a bucket, then use a good sink plunger to remove the blockage.

Place the plunger directly over the drain hole. Push down very firmly then pull up rapidly keeping the plunger over the hole all the time. Repeat several times until the blockage is clear. Run boiling hot water to flush out the pipe. Further problems can occur if the blockage is in the u bend under the sink. In this instance if you are able you will need to carefully unscrew it, then carefully poke a piece of wire up the pipe until you move the blockage. Replace the u- bend.

Unfortunately if you still have no joy you will need to call a plumber, but most cases can be resolved by taking out the above action. Tools for the job naturally include a very good plunger…
