How to Fix a Slow Draining or Clogged Bathroom Sink


If all your sinks are slow draining then the problem is potentially a clogged sewer line but when just one, or few are slow then most of the time, the issue is at the trap. If you look under the sink, you will see the drain connected to your sink, if you look lower you will see a loop in the drain that is called the P-Trap, or simply the trap. This trap is designed so to stay full of water after the faucet is turned off. That remaining water in the trap is designed to prevent sewer gas from entering the living space.

The problem with this trap is that they often get full of debris. Clogged traps can create water damage and leaks. In this video, we will show you how to dismantle, clean and re-install the trap in order to fix it.
