It’s frustrating when your sink is slow to drain. It may be clogged and will need unplugging. Follow these easy steps to help drain out the frustration.
Begin feeding the auger down the drain until you reach the clog or an obstruction like a sharp bend in the pipe.
Take your time – the auger bit has to travel through bends in the pipe to reach the clog.
You can then lock it and begin rotating the auger and applying pressure to reach the clog.
Be careful of splashes in case there is drain cleaning fluid in the clog.
