There are several ways to block the kitchen sink from food debris, grease and small objects that stick to the walls of the pipe.

Some of these ways are:

Obstruction – unblocking of a sink with a suction cup

The suction cup must be right next to your siphon. Then cover the overflow outlet with a cloth or insulating tape and if there is a second sink, plug it as well. Immediately after, remove the protective net from the mouth of the siphon and fill the sink with water so that it completely covers the suction cup. Then with sharp and quick movements make the suction cup up and down to create a vacuum to remove dirt from the sink pipe. Repeat as many times as needed. Finally remove all covers and insulating tapes and pour boiling water.

Obstruction – unblocking of the sink with boiling water

Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Carefully pour the water in a steady stream into the mouth of the sink. Hot water is able to soften the dried fats and clean the inside of the sink tube. You can also add baking soda, salt, vinegar or dishwashing liquid to the boiling water.

Obstruction – unblocking of a sink with a wire

You can use a flexible wire or steel that can be easily found on the market, to remove debris by pushing the wire into the pipe with slow and strong movements. Finally, pour a pot of boiling water to completely remove what is left.

Obstruction – unblocking of the sink with chemicals. We would not recommend this method for many reasons but mainly for its risk and the serious damage it can cause to your sewer system.

Remember that you should always wear a goggle mask, protective gloves and the area should be adequately ventilated.
