Signs that Your Sink is Blocked

There are a few telltale signs that your sink is blocked. These include:

  • Water is taking longer than usual to drain away
  • Water is backing up in the sink
  • A foul smell is coming from the sink
  • Gurgling sounds are coming from the sink when you use other fixtures in the house.

If you notice any of these signs, it's likely that your sink is blocked, and you need to take action.

Identifying the Cause of the Blockage

The cause of the blockage will vary depending on the type of sink you have and how it's being used. In most cases, the blockage will be caused by a buildup of grease, food, or hair. However, if you have a more serious blockage, such as a tree root, then you may need to seek professional help.

Removing the Blockage Using a Plunger

One of the easiest ways to remove a blockage in your sink is to use a plunger. Here's how to do it:

  1. Fill the sink with enough water to cover the plunger cup.
  2. Place the plunger cup over the drain and make sure it's sealed tightly to form a vacuum.
  3. Push and pull the plunger up and down rapidly around ten times.
  4. Remove the plunger and check if the water drains away.

If the water drains away, then you've successfully cleared the blockage. If it doesn't, then you may need to try again or seek professional help.

Clearing the Plughole

If your sink is still blocked after using a plunger, then you may need to clear the plughole manually. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Unscrew the plughole cover and remove any visible debris such as hair or food.
  2. Use a bent wire hanger to remove any debris that is further down the drain.
  3. Replace the plughole cover and test if the water drains away.

When You Need Professional Help

If you've tried all of the above methods and still can't clear the blockage, then it may be time to call in a professional. At Drainage Cumbria, we have the expertise, tools, and experience to deal with even the most stubborn blockages. We use a range of techniques, such as drain jetting and CCTV drain surveys, to quickly and efficiently clear your sink or drain.
