A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing to clear a tenant’s clogged kitchen sink.
The ASAP technician removed the tenant’s copper P-trap and used a 3/8″ snake cable to clear the line. He hit multiple areas of build up at 10 feet and 15 feet down the line. He cabled as far down as 50 feet to ensure the line was clear. The tech also noted that the existing P-trap is corroded and the rubber gasket is badly deteriorated.
The tech then reassembled the P-trap and tested the drain. The drain is working properly at this time. There is a small leak where the copper P-trap meets the copper waste arm. The tech offered to replace the P-trap but the customer declined this service. Lastly, the technician cleaned up the work area.
