    Hi Folks,

    Been struggling with a slow draining sink for the last week or so. Looks like the odd pot I've washed out over time has caught up with me. Tried Liquid Plumr (regular strength), a plunger and removing the trap.

    Before I bust out the snake and its inherent contortions, has anyone used a liquid clog buster that has worked on planting medium? The plunging has brought up everything from orchid bark to sand. I'm hoping there isn't much sand down there, 'cause whatever will dissolve that will eat through the pipes, too, right?

    Thanks!

    Try yanking the P-trap and just power flushing that. That is usually the clog point in my experience.

    You've done all the easy things, so use the snake. If your snake is too hard to use, several forum members keep snakes and should be courteous enough to loan you one of theirs. Their snakes would be especially effective if the clog turns out to be a rodent.

    But if it's sand , wont the snake do relatively little good? I'd try Pyro's idea first.

    I clog my sink all the time with medium. But it's not from my plants, it's my reptiles. I was going to tell you to do what Pyro suggested. That almost always works. If it doesn't try puttin the snake it from there. You could use my king snake, I think she can bite right through glass.

    I clogged my sink with a medium once. Now all my psychics go through the wood chipper instead.

    I clog my sink all the time with vegetables. Now I am trying to figure out what to do with the wheelchairs.
