General Plumbing Solutionsadmin
Nearly every home owner will have a few tools on hand to tackle a small blocked drain to avoid a plumbing fee. If you are handy around the house and don’t mind getting a bit dirty small blocked drains under the sink or basin can sometimes be fixed quite easily.
You can buy a plunger from your hardware store and attempt to plunge the drain from above the sink. To do this you will need to fill the sink with water, pull the plug out and very quickly put the plunger in the sink covering the whole of waste pipe. SO now you should have the sink full of water with the plunger in the sink working as a plug, so water cannot pass. You can slightly lift one side of the plunger and allow water to enter the drain. As it does this you can pump the plunger back and forth. Continue letting water pass more and more until the sink is empty. This process should take about 1-2 minutes. If it doesn’t work the 1st time try a couple more. If still no success you may need to call ABA plumbing to get further advice and potentially use the drain machine to clear the blockage.

If you have been experiencing low pressure, a slow drip or no water at all every time you turn the tap or shower on, then you have a problem.

Sometimes it can even be a boundary valve which is located at your water meter. Sometimes all you need to do is adjust the valve and twist it anti-clock wise to allow more pressure to enter the property. This can avoid a plumbing fee.
