Question:

blocked wash basin pipe ?

My wash basin pipe is blocked somwehere as water doesnt go down the pipe and it jus stay in wash basin. I have opened the one end of pipe which is just under the basin and cleaned it but it didnt help me. I couldnt access the rest of the pipe as its hidden behind the bath tub and i opened the bath panel as well to see whether i can see the pipe but its behind the base of bath tub. I dont wanna pay 150-200 quid to any plumber as its too expensive for me.. Could you plz suugest me some alternative. I have tried bleach and all that stuff as well but no luck !

Answer:

Get what is called a snake...long metal flexable rod. Run it down the drain to unblock the clog. Do you have a product called Drano in your country? It desolves built up hair and soap in a drain. Good luck.

I would try that again! This time make sure that the pipe under the basin is clean to where you can see down through it. I had a similar problem and snaked the pipes for twenty feet or more and discovered that I hadn't really cleaned out the drain enough where the plunger is connected to the drain closer rod at the top of the basin. This suggestion is already in here but I thought I'd expand on it. Another suggestion is that if that connection is clean, try taking the 'p' trap off and making sure that is clear, then run a coat hanger a few times in the remaining pipe line to break up any clots of hair, gunk etc., reconnect and run hot water. good luck, Thanks

If you have a lever operated drain stopper it may be clogged with hair, soap, etc. Remove the overflow drain cover (usually one screw) and the handle. Then you can pull up the articulating rod and in line stopper. Clean it and put it back together in reverse order. If the problem is further down the line use a plumbers snake to free the debris. Best of luck.

What I think is you should boil some Water in A Big Pan and Put it through the Pipe... It might Help... Usually hair get stuck in the wash basin exit ...so Boiling hot water May be help full... Best of Luck ....
