Plumbing TIPS

Kitchen sink disposal

Garbage disposal in a kitchen sink protects your drain from blockages, but it doesn't help against oil and fats, any grease.

Your kids toy

Solid object in a toilet like plastic box, toy, phone? Call for Plumber! Don't flush

Floor drains smell

Floor drain in a basement smells? Check the level of water, if floor drain is dry, call the Plumber - your house is under dangerous health condition (sewer gas goes to the house)

Blocked Drain (Sewer) System

How to Unclog a Blocked Kitchen Sink

If you would like to try to unclog the kitchen sink blockage yourself, it is important to follow our master plumber's tips below.

However, if you’re unsure about something related to drain cleaning at all, don't hesitate to call Anta Plumbing office and ask for plumber's advice or consultation at 416 231 3331.

City of Toronto Licensed Plumbers Drain Cleaning Tips

Sometimes it is easy to clear a kitchen sink blockage, but it can also be very complicated, depending on what and where the blockage is located and the tools you have handy. Every plumber would recommend that you keep grease out of kitchen sink drain, otherwise you will soon need Hydro Jetting. (Hydro Jetting is highly efficient, but to save money you should rather use paper towel to clean the oily frying pan than pouring drain grease down to the kitchen sink drain).

Cleaning clogged kitchen sink

- Fill the sink with 4 inches of water.
- Cover the second sink drain (if you have double sink) with a plastic bag.
- Apply a plunger and move it in an up and down motion.
- Loosen the clog and wait for the water to drain freely.
- Run very hot water through the drain for several minutes to melt away any congealed fat and food particles.

Tips from our master plumber:

- Remove the trap beneath the sink and clean it thoroughly
- Use kitchen sink snake to clear the kitchen drain pipe


Drain Snaking

Drain Snaking

The Auger drain snaking machine has more power to unblock clogged plumbing systems than a plunger. It can reach the point of blocking, but at the same time it's not long enough to unclog the main sewer line. For that problem, our plumbers will use electric drain snaking tool. You can read more about that technique here


Drain cleaning with Ridgid snake

The electric drain snake is a very powerful tool and it can reach the Main City Line (up to 200 feet). Both the main sewer line or kitchen sink can easily be snaked using these electrically powered drain snaking tools. Sometimes our plumbers have to use the cutting head in conjunction with the drain snake to cut roots away in the pipe. If you’re looking for a faster, long term solution, you can consider that calling our licensed plumber to come by with our state-of-the-art hydro jetting equipment for superior drain cleaning service.




Toilet Auger

Plunger, Auger, Toilet snaking

The first step is to remove the sink strainer. In a double sink, bail out one side - the side with the garbage disposer, if there is one - and plug the drain with a rag in a plastic bag.

In a washbasin, remove the pop-up drain plug; most lift out or can be turned and then lifted. Make sure there is enough water in the sink to cover the base of the plunger cup. Spread petroleum jelly on the rim of the cup.

Lower the plunger at an angle and compress the cup to push out air and seat it over the drain. Without breaking the seal, pump the plunger up and down 10 times, and then quickly pull it away. If the drain stays clogged after several attempts, call Anta Plumbing to send out a City of Toronto licensed plumber who specializes in drain cleaning to help you unclog your blocked drain.

Drain pipe Inspection

How to find the blockage in a sewer pipe?


Video sewer inspection (CCTV) can detect drain blockages from the inside of your drain. Your master plumber will be able to see the cause of blocked drains using this modern technology and then use special detection equipment to find the spot for excavation. When it comes to repairs or pipe replacement, we keep the excavation to a minimum, and we prefer to use trenchless technology.

Signs of blocked drain system

Blocked drains are hard to ignore, because your toilet will no longer flush properly, and gullies outside may overflow. There will probably be a bad smell, too.

Drains may become blocked because they are in poor physical condition or because unusual objects or materials are being flushed. Excessive disposal of cooking fats and oils, along with other unsuitable domestic products and DIY materials such as plaster, can cause blockage of the pipe work.

Tree roots entering a broken drain can also be a problem.
