When Should I Call a Plumber to Fix My Bathroom Sink?
Before you call a plumber to fix an issue with your bathroom sink, you should try to troubleshoot the problem yourself to see if it’s an easy fix. For example, if you notice low water pressure in your bathroom sink, but not anywhere else in your home, you may just need to clean the faucet’s aerator. That’s a simple task you can do on your own without calling in a professional plumber.
Some things you may want to do before calling a professional plumber to fix your bathroom sink include:
- Removing and cleaning the faucet to fix low water pressure
- Pour a kettle of boiling water down the sink drain to loosen a clog (use hot, but not boiling water if your pipes are PVC) when your sink drains slowly
- Use a sink plunger to dislodge a clogged bathroom sink drain when you have standing water that won’t drain on its own
There’s one more thing you can try if you if your bathroom sink is draining slowly or not at all — cleaning out the drain trap. The drain trap is located underneath the sink. To clean it out, you need to place a bucket underneath the drain trap to collect any water that may all out of the pipes when you remove the trap. Then, loosen the rings to remove the trap. Then, take the drain trap to another sink in your home to clean it out thoroughly. Once it’s clean, all you have to do is replace it. If something was stuck in your bathroom sink drain, there’s a good chance it will be in the drain trap, so cleaning it and replacing it may fix the problem completely.
If you discover a leak underneath your bathroom sink, you may want to call in a plumber. Leaks typically happen at the joints of your piping, and while it isn’t overly difficult to replace the U-joint under your bathroom sink, it can be a messy job. Because of that, it’s typically best that you have a professional plumber complete the job.
You can also find commercial joint fillers and fitting compounds at your local hardware store. People typically use these to patch leaky pipes at the joint. However, it’s important to remember that these products are only a temporary fix. To avoid having the problem arise again, you should have a professional plumber replace the portion of the pipe or the fittings that are causing the leak.
What If You Can’t Unclog the Bathroom Sink?
If you have a major clog in your bathroom sink, you may not be able to unclog it with a sink plunger, a product, such as Liquid Plumber or Draino, or another home solution. There are times when you need a drain snake to clear a clog, and fortunately, experienced plumbers can snake your drain in no time.
A drain snake, which is also called a plumber’s auger, is a long tool with a coil or hook at the end. Plumbers use them to unclog drains because they are long enough to reach clogs are out or reach and the snake bends with your pipes to get deep-down clogs.
While you may have a drain snake in your home, it’s important to remember that there are different types and sizes. It’s important to use the right drain snake for your drain so that you don’t damage the pipes. So unless you’re 100 percent sure the drain snake you own is the right one for your bathroom sink, you should call a professional Denver plumber to complete the job.
