How to Unclog a Sink Like a Pro

9,096 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

    you can use baking soda and apple cider vinegar just pour in the drain and it will work.

      @Joann Turner thanks for the tip, these solutions are for those situations whereby the clog is very severe (tons of hair and buildup from shaving gels, etc.). But I totally agree with using vinegar, hot water and other safe chemicals :)
