I just recently purchased an old home. It was a fixer upper and I have done all of the remodeling myself. My question is, I have clogged bathroom sink drain and I wanted to know what would be the best way to unclog it?? I have tried Drano, Bladders, Snakes, electric snakes the last resort was to go in thru the exhaust on the roof and run a snake down it. What do I do?? I really do not want to start tearing up walls to unstop a drain. Of course that is if it is the last resort. Thanks

have you tried taking the trap off to see if the clog is there?

and while have the trap off,

run a small snake or wire down the pipe in the wall.

Clearing a drain takes a lot more skill and proper equipment that many realize. I would have a drain cleaner try to open the line or give their comments before opening the wall.

If you have steel drain lines you will probably have to replace them. Lead lines will need to be replaced at some time but can usually be opened unless they have drum traps.

I have a younge couple now that just spent $17,000.00 painting, carpeting and cabinets but didn't fix the plumbing. The toilet and lavatory works but the washing machine, kitchen sink and tub won't drain and they're out of money. It will of course cost them a lot more to fix now.
