Before using the auger, remove all the filters or stoppers. Insert it through the drain opening; keep on moving and pressing it so that it bends according to the piping and moves further. When it stops at the blockage, move it a little backwards. Now push it and turn its handle to bore through the clog. Again push it with a force to clear the blockage through the pipe, or else pull it out through the drain. You can also remove the U-trap by unscrewing it and insert the auger directly through the drain pipe.
Poor water supply pressure can also be the cause of this problem. In this case, you will notice the same problem in other fixtures as well. Also, same problems will be noticed by people residing in rest of the apartments/houses in your area. This can sometimes cause low water pressure in one outlet when other taps are turned on and proper pressure when only one outlet is on. This is because distribution of water further lowers the pressure. In this case, plumber will measure the incoming pressure and flow before your regulator, so as to make sure if that is the problem. Sometimes, elevation can also be the problem. The water storage tank which is supplying water to the sink must be at higher level so that the water flows by gravity. Most of the time, water pressure could get affected due to a damaged pipeline. Major plumbing problems, like blockage or leakage of pipeline, can be the cause of reduced pressure. If this is the case, the repairs can be expensive.
▣ Stainless steel sinks are also available in different finishes. The best bet is to go for satin-finish sink, which is fairly durable. Extremely glossy and polished sinks are more prone to scratches and other damage.
Sometimes, you may notice fingerprint marks on your kitchen sink. Such marks can be removed by spraying glass cleaner on them. Wipe with a paper towel or a clean cloth. In case of tough stains, like paint; use a commercial polisher, specially made for stainless steel products. Normally, rust spots appear very rarely on stainless steel sinks. If there are such spots, apply a paste made of a tablespoon of tartar and a few drops of lemon juice, and leave it for an hour. Scrub the sink with a clean cloth. Rinse and dry.
