I Cannot Fix The Kitchen Sink.

Rating: 5.0
I cannot fix the kitchen sink.
Though I think, and think, and think
no amount of plunging
will from the mouth of the drain release
masses of clumped-up burnt food, old
refuse, biodegradable matter, glass shattered;
and though it reeks, it reeks, it reeks
(cometh forth from the sink)
no amount of RotoRoter can release
the smell trap from the frothy deep,
because I, unfortunately, cannot fix the kitchen sink.

Did you try taking apart the U trap in the cabinets below? ? ? You're gonna wanna have a bucket under there ready to catch the water once you unscrew the nuts. There's probably a clump of nasty crud plugging things up down there. 9 out of 10 times when the sink backs up its because the trap is full. Call me later today and I'll help you
