Clogged drains are the result of a foreign object (or debris) getting stuck in a drainpipe, or built-up residue that makes it impassable. Now, the challenge is how to uncloga drain with standing water. If you didn’t catch the clog fast enough and water has backed up, it could make for a messy situation

Here I show you the reason why it is clogged:

I'll give you some tips on how to fix it.

Heres some tips may help you:

Drain cleaner.Often a sink clog can be remedied with drain cleaner, which is available at your local hardware or home improvement store. If you think that the clog isn’t too bad, you could also try vinegar and baking soda. If you prefer the non-chemical approach, try pouring some vinegar down the drain, and then follow it with baking soda. The combination will cause a fizzing reaction (that looks like carbonation) that can be effective for minimal sink clogs.

Plunging.A plunger can be a quick solution when fixing clogged sink pipes. This takes some patience and a little practice. There are mini-plungers designed for a clogged bathtub drain, shower or sink, that might work better than a standard toilet-sized model.

Boiling water.First, remove as much standing water from the sink as possible (using a cup or container). Next, pour an entire pot or kettle of boiling water directly into the drain. You might have to repeat this procedure several times for it to work, but it’s an easy and inexpensive fix. If that’s not working, remove the standing water again, and then pour salt down the drain before the boiling water. Let it sit, and then flush again with hot water to clear.
