What happens when we call for a plumber for my sink choke?
The plumber will first assess where the choke is. As the sink usually links down to the drain on the floor, connected by PVC pipes which can be quite a distance depending on how the initial installation was done, the area of choke can be large.
The plumber would try to clear from the top portion down to the bottom. After the clearing is done, a simple test by pouring a pail of water down the drain is done to ensure the clog is thoroughly cleared. After this, the payment is made for the choke that is considered cleared.
