Vanity Sink Clogs

Why Vanity Sink Clogs Are an Issue in Frisco

In our area, local building codes allow—or even require—plumbers and drain technicians to tie AC condensate lines into sink drains. While it’s a normal setup, it can pretty commonly cause issues from a clogging standpoint. Because of this setup, fixing a vanity sink clog can sometimes be more complex than simply running a snake through the drain.

To ensure that you get the best possible outcome, hire a local plumber who knows and understands these issues from top to bottom. When your HVAC is relying on a clear condensation line to function properly, it’s more important than ever to make sure you take care of bathroom clogs quickly and effectively. Earl’s Plumbing has the tools and expertise to do it right!

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

Texas municipal codes and building practices can make bathroom vanity sink clogs particularly tricky. Learn what you need to know here, and give us a call if you don’t see your question!

If your sink clogs frequently, it could be due to:

  • Toothpaste, dirt, or skin flakes binding with soap scum in the drain pipes
  • Tangled hair around a stopper or pivot rod
  • Debris or small objects stuck in P-Trap
  • Corroded or otherwise damaged pipes
  • Clogged AC condensate lines draining into bathroom sink

If you’ve noticed a problem with slow-draining sinks and your air conditioner isn’t cooling your house as well as it usually does, the two problems could be connected.

Dirt, dust, pet dander, and other airborne contaminants can get trapped by moisture in the air. As the condensation drips from your AC’s evaporator coil, it can carry this debris with it, leading to a clog in your condensate line. And because these lines are tied into your home’s other plumbing systems, you can quickly end up with a backed-up bathroom sink drain on your hands.

This trick works in your kitchen sinks as well!

Whatever you do, do NOT use chemical drain cleaners that you buy at the grocery or hardware store. These liquids are highly corrosive, dangerous to both your pipes and your health. If pouring hot water or a baking soda/vinegar mixture down the drain doesn’t work, call the professionals at Earl’s Plumbing!

Next, try pouring hot water down the drain (though be advised that boiling water can damage PVC pipes or porcelain sinks). You can also try a cup-shaped plunger—just make sure to remove the stopper first and NEVER use the same plunger for your toilet and your sink!

If these methods don’t work, it’s time to call Earl’s Plumbing. Stubborn or frequently occurring clogs are often a sign of a bigger problem—one that our team has the knowledge and tools to fix for good!

If you have a clog in an older home, always call a plumber! If your home was built before 1985, it is super important that you don’t put any acidic drain cleaning solutions of any kind into your plumbing system. There is a good chance that your sewer lines are cast iron and this can do more harm than good, even in small amounts. This situation is more prevalent in south Plano, Richardson, Garland, and older areas of McKinney. If you have an older home in these communities, Earl’s has you covered!

“Earl’s was great. I had an issue Saturday evening and I spoke with Brant, one of the owners of the company. He didn’t have anyone available so he came himself to stop the immediate problem. He then scheduled someone to come out and fix my problems on the following Tuesday because I wasn’t able to be here Monday. I appreciate the great customer service and the great job they did to fix my problems. I feel like their work was spectacular compared to what the previous plumber had done. They have gained a customer for life. Thank you Brant and your team.”
