    Clogged shop sink

    Bad clog in the shop sink. Probably house paint, auto paint, bondo, oil, you know, stuff that's in shops where bikes get worked on.

    Anyone have tips for unclogging? Can't fit a snake down, there's a 90 that we can't get past.

    Carpenter buddy has done this at my rentals.

    Take the trap apart under the sink. Hook the hose from your big ass shopvac to the line. Duct tape it to make it airtight. Turn on shopvac. Wait for change it tone. Make helper clean shopvac.

    If it's tied into other drains you need to plug them so it'll pull a vaccuum.

    And it depends where in relationship to the vent stack the clog is, but he's undefeated at my places.

    Hmm, I might try that... not sure how strong our shop-vac is, though. I'm gonan throw some MEK down there for a couple hours first, though.

    Is your drain trap plastic? I'd double check, the MEK might eat the plastic.
    Dictated but not read.

    No idea where to get that stuff. Do I need to mix gatorade with it, or is it fine by itself?
