Hey Sylvan, Im back with another question. I followed all prevoius instructions regarding undersink connections,chrome plated brass 1-1/4 to 1-1/4x1-1/2 P-Trap to wasteline. for some reason today I'm getting backpressure and water is not draining, or very slow if any.

-could it be a clogged waste lie ?

I completely took everything apart and reassembled and still did not drain. need advice pleeease ! Thanks, Yata

HI Yata, How about trying the following to see if you may have an air pocket that acts like a vacuum and not allowing the waste / water to flow.

With the pop up out of the way and a rag over the over flow take a plunger and push down gently and with an upward motion this should break the vacuum. This does not require a lot of strength just pull up with the basin 1/2 full of water and if there is a partial stoppage this should clear it.

Good luck.. Sylvan

Thanks for the fast reponse, but it didn't work. do you think I might have to snake the wasteline ? or? YATA.

Normally when I install new waste piping or even a trap I automatically snake out the line, I took it for granted you did it prior to installing the basin. My mistake
