I have an access to the drain before the p trap (which is in the floor... not ideal, but apparently code compliant in Ontario) through a clean out tee. I want to do it by myself the next time this...

    What do you do when something long-dead and reeking is way down the drain?

    Bathroom sink connected to an opposing double kitchen sink, not draining: vacuumed, snaked, plunged.

    The title pretty much says it all. I've got a bathroom sink that wouldn't drain. After working on it for a bit I realized it's connected to a double kitchen sink on the other side of the wall. I've suck 'em both with the wet/dry vac, I've plugged and plunged 'til I was blue in the face (and...
