How to Unclog a Sink Like a Pro

9K Views
Many of you asked me to do a tutorial on how to unclog a sink.
So I put an extensive tutorial together that walks you through this easy fix (it's like you're right in the bathroom with me!!). This is probably one of the Top 10 fixes a homeowner encounters. And the funny part is that I had to unclog my own sink last weekend. What timing.
All you need for this project are a Zip It ($3), Drain Auger ($28), channel locks, tupperware container, towel, and 30-60 minutes. Check out my step-by-step video by visiting www.homerepairtutor.com/how-to-unclog-a-sink
This tutorial will solve 99% of your clogs and you're always welcome to ask me questions.
What plumbing task would you like to tackle but haven't gotten around to yet?
Let me know and please share why so that I and the other Hometalkers can help you :)
Thanks as always for your feedback and wonderful comments!!
Time: 30-60 Minutes Cost: $31 Difficulty: Easy

    Having to call a plumber in to unclog my sink has never happened, I take a lot of precautions in this area, once a month I will pour baking soda down my kitchen sink let it sit a few then comes the vinegar again let the vinegar do it's job by

    How much baking soda do you use to pour down the sink and for how long do you let it sit before pouring in the vinegar. Plus how much vinegar to you use?
