I had this issue about 6 years ago and the big(3 1/2") black ABS has probably colisped somewhere therefore all that water/sewer cannot go through. My was underground , so I had to hire a backhoe to dig up and install new black pipe. Years ago contractors used a cheaper black pipe and it did not stand up. If your black pipe is good, then it will be plugged at a P trap somewhere or it may be near the join close to the town/city connection...Where or what water/sewer is not going through...If your bathroom goes through, then It will be your kitchen drain...If its your kitchen, then the P trap is plugged under your sink.Replace it under 20 bucks..and make sure its 1 1/2" in diameter...they may sell you 1 1/4 BUT don't use it...

You have a clogged trap. Try a plunger, draino or disconnect the trap and clean it

SOURCE: clogged sinks and toilets

Never use Draino on a toilet. All pipe cleaning liquids are not really a solution, just a temporary fix.

Since you said that the slow draining is associated with both the toilets and the sinks then I am almost certain that you have a venting issue.

Imagine a drinking straw.....now if you hold your thumb on the end of the straw and bring it up abouve the water level water remains in the straw. This is because air can't get in to replace the water. When your finger is removed then the water flows freely.

As with the straw, your plumbing must also breath. I would bet that one or more vents that are on your roof have become clogged with debrise. Squirrels love to throw nuts and stuff down there to build their nests upon.

Climb up there (safety is a priority) and try running a snake (~$10 at lowes) and see if you hit any obstruction. If so, use the snake to dislodge it.

If you would like, pour water down the vents either by hose or bucket and see if the water backs up. If it does then you have a clog. You can also use the water to try to clear the clog.

SOURCE: water backup from sewage line

you have to have an aerator pipe or sewer drainage things will siphon lock, you need to raise the height of the pipe, this should remedy your problem,also make sure theres a "P" trap on this stand pipe near the base

SOURCE: sink only drains when garbage

Sounds like a clog inside disposal.
Water should run freely through disposal.
Remove both nuts on p-trap and trap falls loose.
Put bucket under tubular drain from disposal.
Turn water on to see if water runs out of disposal.
You might need a de-greaser, drain cleaner or CLR

Repairing A Clogged Sink Drain

With regular care, aclogged sink drain can be avoided. However, should this situation arise, tryclearing the drain with ordinary baking soda and vinegar. Use a plungerafterward to add air to the drain to clear it. This usually is the first lineof defense for clogged drains. If this doesn't clear the drain, you may needone of the chemical drain cleaners available in most hardware stores. Today,drain snakes are also available for household use. These can work to cleardrain up to 25 feet along pipe lengths. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.allaboutthepipes.com/about.aspx">plumber charlotte</a><br />

What is the best kitchen sink brand in India?

Kitchen sink is one of the important components of a Kitchen. Kitchen sinks are available in various size and designs. The standard for most kitchens is the double-bowl sink, which is 33-by-22 inches in size. There are lots of options in bowl configurations, including two bowls of equal size and depth, bowls of unequal width or different depths and sinks with one very large bowl and one small one that's primarily designed for the garbage disposal.
Single bowl sinks, which can be as little as 12 inches wide, work well in small spaces, and larger triple bowl sinks add convenience if you have enough room for them - some are more than 48 inches wide. And speaking of space, there is also the option of commercial-grade restaurant sinks that can be more than six feet long including drainboards. Sinks mount in one of two places - above the counter or below it. Above-counter installations are more common and are easier to install. Below-counter mounting offers a somewhat less obtrusive appearance and easier cleaning, but the sinks are more expensive and more difficult to install.
Below are top kitchen sink brands in India-

  • Kohler Kitchen Sinks
  • Blanco Kitchen Sinks
  • Houzer Kitchen Sinks
  • Swanstone Kitchen Sinks
  • Kraus Kitchen Sinks
  • CERA Kitchen Sink
  • Kaff Kitchen Sink
  • Nirali Kitchen Sink
  • Parryware Kitchen Sink
  • Blue Star Kitchen Sink
  • Hindware Kitchen Sink
  • Franke Kitchen Sink

My kitchen sink refuses to drain at all.

You'll need a pro with a large cable snake and maybe a cutter head...

I hope it's not due to a garbage disposal. I try to warn people away from those things.

Gurgling in the bath tub when toilet is flushed

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
lear a clogged (not stopped) sink or bathtub with a plunger:
  1. If you have a dishwasher, pinch off the rubber dishwasher drain hose that leads to the garbage disposer using a clamp or locking pliers. If clearing a bathtub, remove the drain stopper and cover the overflow opening with a wet rag.
  2. Remove the sink basket or tub stopper and clean any debris from the drain opening.
  3. Fill the sink or tub with sufficient water to cover the plunger cup, usually about 2 inches. If you are working on a double sink, seal the other sink with a stopper so the plunger can create a vacuum.
  4. Set the plunger on the drain opening and repeatedly pump it up and down, then pull away sharply to dislodge debris. Repeat if necessary.
  5. Turn on warm or hot water to flush loosened debris from the drain.
  6. If the clog remains, use an auger (see below) or an expansion nozzle (see below) to clear the drain.
Clear a clog using an auger:
  1. Remove the stopper or strainer. If unable to do so, disassemble the drain trap (see below) and feed the auger directly through the pipe. Make sure you have a pail and rags nearby in case of a water spill.
  2. Release the setscrew on the auger and begin feeding the cable into the open drain.
  3. Once the auger tip hits the clog, set the screw and crank the auger clockwise to break up the clog.
  4. Continue breaking up the clog and moving it down the drain line with the auger. Once there is no more resistance to forward motion of the auger, stop and carefully remove the auger.
  5. If the clog can't be moved, continue twisting the auger to possibly snag and retract the clog.
  6. Once the clog is cleared, flush the drain with boiling water.

Clogged pipes and drainage

if this is under your kitchen sink use a pail and undo the drain at the loop and clean out , if you dont want to get dirty try the compress air plungers

Won't drain water and backing up in sink

You have a clogged sink. Do you own a snake? (do not use any "liquid plumber" type cleaners in a kitchen sink as you wash and prepare foods in it).

It grinds, but dirty water comes up into the sink

It is clogged and DO NOT USE ANY SOLVENTS DOWN THE DRAIN. NO kitchen sink should ever have any type of "draino" put in it as you was dishes/foods in it. There is definitely a clog. Unfortunately the trap plug doesnt usually work, do you have a PVC drain? Is there a "dandy" below the sink. It will also be PVC and have a larger nut on it, If so, unscrew it and snake the drain. GL
