Cable Snake

What is the best way to unplug asink?

I have a double sink that is plugged......vinegar and plunging doesn't work... any suggestions....

when you are plunging the sink, make sure you block off the other side of the sink. Put the strainer in it and make sure it stays tight while you are plunging. Otherwise, all the pressure you are plunging into the drain, is going right out the other side of the sink. Any sink can be snaked. Vinegar does nothing to a clog.

Draino, Liquid Plumber, rarely work.

Your sink bowls are joined together underneath the sink by one pipe with a tee I'm assuming. The pipe that comes down from the tee goes into the top of the p-trap. The horseshoe looking thingy that holds water. Remove this pipe and the p-trap, the pipe may go into the wall or come up from the bottom of the cabinet. You can get a short cable snake from any home improvement store for $10 - $25, about 25 feet long. You can run this into the pipe tht goes into the floor or wall and try to remove the clog that way.

Since it is a kitchen sink and you may have a disposal it's probably a grease or food clog. You may also have an underlying problem with the drain pipe itself. At the same home improvement store that carries the snake, look for a drain cleaner that contains either concentrated or virgin sulphuric acid. This stuff is very strong, follow the directions on the bottle exactly. About $8.

Plunge, then snake, if that fails go with the drain cleaner. The drain cleaner should be poured into the p-trap SLOWLY. Make sure there is no water in the p-trap. Remove the p-trap from the pipe that comes down from the tee. (the tee is where the sink bowls join together and one pipe comes down from there)
