Good morning, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer; my name is ***** ***** I will help you today.How long is the object you used to poke down the drain hole?_____If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.
7 inches is certainly impressive, but if there was a small bit of debris then it might still be blocking the tube.The very best thing to use is a 1 metre length of net curtain wire - the springy stuff coated with PVC. Put/keep a hook in one end so that you don't lose it. Just gently and slowly push the curtain wire into the hole and down the channel. Pull it back and forth a couple of times, and that should be enough. Pour a small amount of water onto the drain valley to run into the hole, to test it. Not too much water - just enough to prove that it's clear.
