Instructions on how to Clear a Clog above the Sink
First, start lifting the stopper lever up to the closed position. Then, unscrew the retaining nut which holds the pivot rod in position and pull the pivot rod out of the drain pipe in order to release the stopper. You can find most of the degree in and around the stopper. Clean the area using a small wire brush.
Clear a Clog under the Sink
If the clog still persists, you need to go below the sink and clean the sink drain trap. Prepare the following for this step: a bucket, a small wire brush and channel type pliers which you can purchase from any plumbing services store in Sydney. The first thing to do is to place the bucket under the trap to catch debris and water. Using the channel-type pliers loosen the slip nuts on the trap bend. Then unscrew the nuts with your hand and get them away from the connectors. Then by using a small wire brush, remove the pipe and clean out all the debris and rinse with water. Put back the trap bend in its original place and tighten the slip nuts using the channel-type pliers thoroughly.
In order to protect pipes from scrapes, just place duct tape on the end of wrench before you use it on pipes.
Clear a Plunger-type Drain
In case of a plunger-type drain, have the screws removed on the cover plate. Remove the cover plate carefully and all the apparatus from the opening of the overflow drain. Using a small wire brush, clean all debris from the links and also the plunger pieces of hardware. After the cleaning of debris, lubricate the pieces using heatproof grease.
