If you find that water is running away too slowly from your sink, there is every chance that there is a blockage and it needs to be cleared sooner rather than later if you do not want to experience further, more unpleasant problems.

The Signs To Watch Out For

Fortunately, there are a number of signs to look out for when a sink is beginning to clog and it is therefore very unlikely to spring upon you.

Here are some of the tell-tale signs which indicate that you may have a blocked sink. By acting quickly, you will be able to avoid the problems becoming worse.

  • Smell: The easiest — and least pleasant — symptom to spot.
  • Sink Drainage: Water taking longer than usual to drain from your sink.
  • Gurgling: An ominous gurgling sound from the plug hole.

Preventing Blockages

The best form of remedy is always prevention and by following these simple rules, you will hopefully be able to save yourself from many future blocked sink problems.

Install hair traps to help prevent blockages whenever you have a shower. You can also flush pipework regularly with soda crystals followed by hot running water. This should clear any soap scum that may be building up.

However, this will not help if the damage is already done.

BlockBlaster To The Rescue!

You can use your Blockblaster in all household areas. Screw on the green adapter to remove blockages from sinks and basins, use the purple adapter for baths and showers and of course the blue adapter for toilets. The product works in the same way for all these areas.

How Safe is the Product?

Extremely. The unit uses CO2, an innocuous gas that is used to carbonate drinks so is totally harmless. The unit delivers pressure that is enough to dislodge blockages, but should the button be pressed accidentally in air, it simply emits a cloud of cold gas that will cause no damage and will give the feel of being in a fancy nightclub with dry ice at your feet!

Clearing Sinks & Shower Grates

Place purple ‘plunger type’ silicone head over plug hole or shower grate and push down to form an air tight seal.

Remember to cover overflow outlet with tape before releasing gas.
