You stand at the kitchen sink, thanking that higher power for giving you the time and the will power to clean all of those dishes. You turn away to clean the counters, quickly finishing up. Then turn back to the kitchen sink and uh 0h. Something is wrong. The drain is taking too long to drain off that water. Added to that, you get a whiff of a horrible smell. Something is definitely wrong here and you need to figure out why the water in the kitchen sink is moving so slowly.
When the water in your kitchen sink drains slowly, you are annoyed and frustrated. Often the slow draining is due to an obstruction in the sink drain pipe. Remedying this problem can be time consuming, but clearing the sink drain of the clog only requires a few basic supplies that you probably already have in your home.
Realize that when water does not run through your drain, it is because there is a bunch of junk and trash clogged uWhen the water flow is clogged in your kitchen drain, see if you can fix it yourself before calling out the plumber. However, the clog could be anywhere in the drain pipes, not just limited to your kitchen. Although rare, it can even be in the vent pipe leading to the roof; such blockages usually cause slowly draining pipes rather than completely blocked pipes (just like slowly flowing gasoline from a gas can when the vent is closed).
