Our Sink Drain Replacement Process

Removing the sink drain is the first step in replacing an old or failing drain. Your plumber should also inspect the P-trap pipe to determine whether it should also be replaced. This is especially important if the pipe is metal. Over time, rust and corrosion will develop inside the metal pipe and lead to its deterioration. Ask your plumber to replace it with a PVC pipe to prevent this from happening again.

It’s also important to choose a replacement drain assembly that’s the same size as the old one. This ensures a water-tight fit and faster installation. There are many new drain options available that can do a great job of meeting your needs. For example, you could upgrade your kitchen sink drain to an all-in-one stopper with removable strainer basket. Similar designs are available for bathroom sink drains.

Common Problems and Frequently Asked Questions

Help! My bathroom sink drain pipe and P-trap don’t meet.

This problem can arise if you try to install the wrong parts together, or if you fail to take accurate measurements for the drain assembly. Prevent this problem by taking the old parts to the hardware store to make sure you purchase the right replacements. Or better yet, call the pros at your local Mr. Rooter Plumbing to handle the drain assembly replacement.

What is the best sink drain cleaner?

Accumulated debris inside drainpipes can cause clogs and foul odors. The best way to prevent these problems is to routinely clean hair out of bathroom drains and food particles out of kitchen drains. Another preventative method is to use a biological enzyme that consumes the debris that accumulates in the drain before it creates a clog. Put a cup of baking soda and a cup of white vinegar in the drain and let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse it down with a pot of nearly boiling water. This septic-friendly, affordable home remedy removes biofilm buildup, preventing smells and shallow clogs. For deep-down pipe clogs, call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to perform HydroScrub® Jetting.

How to get hair out of a sink drain:

Cleaning gobs of hair out of bathroom sink drains is easy. Remove the sink stopper and scrub that clean. Then, get your needle nose pliers and a flashlight. Use these tools to grab any hair out of the upper part of the drain. If the sink is still slow, carefully remove the P-trap under the sink and clean that out as well. When replacing the P-trap, be careful not to overtighten the nuts.

What is an ejector pump?

An ejector pump is a device that’s attached to a drain that’s lower than the home’s sewer line or septic tank. The pump forces water up to a drainpipe, where gravity takes over to direct wastewater to the sewer or septic system. For example, basement bathroom plumbing often relies on ejector pumps to move all waste from toilets, sinks, and showers up to the sewer or septic system.
