overflow draining to the sink


it's supposed to drain out the same drain pipe your sink uses. If it is overflowing into your sink, then your drain pipe is clogged. Your sink probably overflows when your disposal runs too, right? Unclog your pipe and you're good to go.

cloged kithen sink


it all depensd on where the clog is, if the clog is in the striaght pipe that goes to the sewer you might be able to do this if you have a long enough snake , I would first try to and always reccomend that you take the j pipes under the sink apart and check them first and if the clog is further down the line than you snake the pipe from there under the sink

sink drain slow


You can purchase a device from Home Depot that will clean out the drain. In the plumbing business, we call it a blow bag. But some call it drain dog and so on. It's a black rubber bag that fills with water and then when it reaches a certain pressure it blocks the drain but runs water through it until the clog is dislodged. You attach it to a water hose and push it into the drain as far as you can get it. Run it for 15 to 20 min. and then pull it back out. There are several sizes to accomadate the pipe size. You sill need the one that does pipes up to 2 inches. You will have to remove your drain assymbly under the sink to do this. While you have the drain assymbly off, you can make sure it is clean as well. This will clean out the garbage that collects in the pipe. Hope this helps.

My washer wont drain


Either your pipe to sink is clogged or nearly clogged or the pump on the washer is about to give out. Does the water spray out vigorously when using the container, or does it just flow out?
