An Oily Mess | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If oil is poured down your sink drain, you need to try to fix it as soon as possible.

You were rinsing off the breakfast dishes before heading to Fort Island Gulf Beach this morning when you noticed a gurgling sound and a bad smell coming from the drain in the sink. The drain was still working but slowly. You’re not sure what the problem might be.

A gurgling noise, slow drain, bad smell and repeated sink backups are all signs that you might have a grease clog forming – or already formed – in your pipes, according to hunker.com. A grease clog can form if you pour liquified grease (butter or fat) in the sink or if oil was poured into the sink and remained in the pipe long enough to congeal.

Grease is one of the big no-nos when it comes to the sink. You should always find a way to dispose of used grease other than pouring in the sink. The same goes for oil. And, if you or someone else accidentally pours oil down the sink, you need to fix it as soon as possible before it becomes a problem.

“The first thing to do is pour hot water down the drain. After that, you will need to pour a mixture of vinegar and baking soda to get rid of the oil down the sink,” hunker.com says. “If your drain has been clogged for quite some time, then you can still follow these instructions. All you have to do is pour hot water down the drain with the baking soda and vinegar mixture. If the drain is super clogged and this doesn’t work, you’re going to need to put a snake down the drain or call a plumber to fix your sink.”

If you don’t have a trusted plumber you can rely on to help you, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
