Clogged sink
 
My kitchen sink just clogged up and no water is going down. No grease got poured down it that I know of. Any methods that you use to unclog sinks. Home remedies that I might have on hand? We are having some very icy weather and I can not get out to get any draino:(

Plunger, snake, hot water, take the pipes apart. Good luck

Vinegar, soda and hot water - There's a method to it, so you can't pour the entire thing in at once. Search it on youtube.

Pull all the standing water out of the sink.
Get a small bucket that will fit underneath the P trap.
The bucket should be big enough to catch the remaining water.
Put the bucket under the P trap.
Pull the P trap apart and clear out the blockage.
Put the P trap back together, and run some hot water.

plunger?

mudrunner 01-28-2013 03:13 PM

Hot salt water is a method I have never tried but have heard that it does work

Tried it all but undoing the P trap. THere is a leak somewhere and it has backed up into the dishwasher. Plumber coming tomorrow.
