My kitchen sink decided to not accept any more foodstuff this morning
as my garbage disposal was grinding up some carrot shreds. The disposal
ground up the food but nothing went down the sink. It filled up with
water and carrot debris, leaving a soupy orange mess in the sink.
So I went to HD and bought some Drano gel stuff. I poured half of it in
the sink and the other half in my bathroom sink, which had been
draining slowly. Half-hour later, I washed both sinks down with hot
water, as per instructions on Drano bottle. The bathroom sink works
beautifully. The kitchen sink now has hot sudsy Drano water in it. The
drano warns me not to turn on the disposal as all the poisons from the
gel will splash toward me and my kitchen.
What else can I do? I want to avoid paying a plumber something I can do
Thanks in advance,
