Sink. Thursday , August 24th , 2017 - 07:52:14 AM
If vinegar and baking soda do not successfully unclog the sink, try using hot water. Boiling water can sometimes unclog a drain. To try this method, boil a gallon of water and slowly pour it down the drain. Only do this if you have metal pipes, since PVC pipes can melt or become damaged. This will cause an even bigger mess than a clogged drain. This may create blockage or holes, forcing you to replace the sink's pipes altogether.
Finally, fit the unit into place, making sure that it is secure before connecting the water and waste pipes. A pedestal basin can be bedded into its pedestal with plumbing mastic; some basins have a special fixing for securing the basin and pedestal together. As usual, ensure that there is no strain on any of the pipes or connections - if there is, refit or rebend the pipes as necessary.
If boiling water does not unclog your drain, wait for the sink to cool off and then remove the basket drainer. Use a plunger to attempt to clear the clog in the drain. This is best accomplished by using quick, sharp movements with the plunger. This may take several minutes to be successful, so do not give up too easily if you do not unclog the sink right away. If the clog clears, remove it from the sink to the trash can and replace the basket drainer.
