      Re: sinks

      I have found that over half of bathroom sink backups are in the pop-up assembly or P-trap itself. There is a nut on the reverse side of the pop-up assembly. Once loosened the rod can be slid out of the pop-up assembly and the plunger will lift out. Remove the P-trap to check for obstructions. If it is a brass trap and the bottom of the trap feels rough now is a good time to replace it with a tubular PVC trap. Once the trap is off an easy way to clean the pop-up assembly is to push a small wad of paper towel through the drain with your plunger handle. Of course if the clog is not in the pop-up or the trap then you can proceed with a K-39 or other type of drain cleaning machine.
      Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

        I use a small electrc jetter on almost all sink lines.
        This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

          Use of K-39 or any electric jetting machine will help you greatly.
