If you have been reading my posts on a somewhat regular basis you know that I am not the handiest person when it comes to fixing things around the house. Yes, I can change a light bulb.
Two things that I usually try to steer clear of are electrical problems and plumbing problems. I would tend to most likely make matters worse and would end up calling a professional in the end. It would probably cost more to fix my mistake than if I had called in the first place.
Anyway, I was faced with a problem with the bathroom sink yesterday. I got out of bed around 7:30 (that’s A. M. not P. M. even though I’s retired). I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth. I didn’t notice a problem immediately when I turned the water on. The drain seemed to be working fine.
As I was brushing me teeth I turned away from the sink because somebody was yowling to be fed, OK, the were two insisting they be fed and one just siting patiently waiting for food. I paused in my brushing to give them each a few munchies and to keep them quiet.
I went back to brushing and was ready to spit and rinse. I turned back to the sink and noticed that there was blockage preventing water from going down the drain.What did I need to do? Should I try just turning on the water and see if the blockage would disappear? Should I get a plunger? Would I need a snake?
What I ended up doing was just picking the blockage up and moving it. This worked because the drain was clear once again,
