Clogged Bathroom Sink

I have a clogged sink. The water takes time to go down. I am thinking it's from hair dye. I once disposed of the remaining hair dye I was using down the bathroom sink. Could it be the hair dye I disposed of? It was 10-12-2012.


The water just started not going down in the last week. We took the drain out and used a liquid cleaning chemical a couple times. Then we took the trap off and made sure it was clean. It was. We are thinking there must be a clog from the wall pipe out. Any suggestions, please?

Hair dye is a liquid. It would not have clogged your sink. Most likely hair has clogged your sink. Have you tried using a drain cleaner such as draino or liquid plumber?

You don't say whether you live in a house or an apartment. If it's a house, I would suspect a clog in the main sewer line. Call a plumber. It could be tree roots that have grown in to your sewer pipe.


It's usually an easy fix for a plumber. They have a cutting tool that they run through your drain system and it chops away all the roots. You will probably have to get this done once every 2 years or so. I had it done for about $150.00. If you don't get it done, the roots will destroy you sewer line and you will have to have your yard dug up and the sewer pipe replaced. Very expensive!

I'm not sure what type of drain you have, but before calling a plumber (who will just run a snake down it if is just a clog), you can take a long narrow object like a kitchen knife and see if you can pull hair out. Keep pulling and pulling. Most of the time a clog is just a build up of hair and why spend the money on a plumber if you can reach it yourself?

I buy 1lb. container of Thrift from a local plumber. It takes about 1/4 of the container to treat a drain.


Follow the directions and you will notice a difference almost immediately!
