Kitchen Drains Can Be Easily Cleared

Posted on: July 27th, 2011 by zach

A question we get asked sometimes is…

I think my kitchen drains are partially clogged because the sink drains slowly. What do you recommend?

  • First, try using a plunger
  • Second, you can remove the trap. Be careful if you have used a liquid drain opener because there may be some in the trap
  • Third, if the clog is beyond the trap, there are drain augers that extend from about 15 feet to about 50 feet.

There are also special enzyme based drain openers that will help dissolve buildup in pipes in older homes.
