Sink Drain Replacements
Replacing a failing drain assembly? To begin, your plumber will remove the sink drainthat’s failing. Ask your plumber to inspect all your under-sink plumbing, including the P-trap, to see if it also needs to be replaced. This is most important for old metal pipes, which are susceptible to rust and corrosion and will eventually break and cause a leaking sink drain. To prevent this from happening, request that your plumber replace your metal P-trap with a PVC pipe.
While you’re having your drain replaced, why not upgrade to a different drain style that does a better job of meeting your needs? There are many new drain options when replacing kitchen and bathroom sink drains, like all-in-one drain stoppers with removable strainer baskets. With these types of stoppers, you’ll no longer need to keep track of those pesky plugs, and cleaning out the debris basket is a breeze.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does an ejector pump do?
An ejector pump is a device used in lower-level bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms that are located below the home’s sewer pipe or septic tank. The pump is attached to a drainpipe and forces wastewater up to the sewer or septic line.
How do you clean a bathroom sink drain clogged with hair?
Start by removing the drain stopper. Scrub it clean and set it aside. Then, use a flashlight and needle nose pliers to remove all visible hair from inside the drain. If the sink still drains slowly, try removing the P-trap under the sink and check it for debris. Reinstall the P-trap carefully, being sure not to over-tighten the nuts.
How do you get rid of mould in a sink drain?
A mouldy sink drain can cause foul odours throughout the room. To eliminate mould in a sink drain, start by removing all possible debris from the drain, such as hair in bathroom drains or food particles in kitchen drains. Pour a cup of baking soda and a cup of white vinegar into the drain. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then, slowly pour a pot of nearly boiling water down the drain.Another preventative method is to use a biological enzyme that consumes the debris that accumulates in the drain before it creates a clog.
