Drain In Bathroom Sink Drains Slow


I have put 2 bottles of Drain ALL and 1/2 Bottle of Liquid Plumber down my sink in the past 2 1/2 months the HIGH POWERED STIFF and the water still goes down every slow. But when you have soap foam in the sink it likes sucks the water right down. We checked the fall of the drain pipe and it was running towards the sink and we changed that so it runs away from it now.

I just don't understand why the water is draining slow without the soap foam?

You would think that the water would start draining fast.

I have no idea about the soap foam thing, but
If you've eliminated any clogs that might have been there,
check the vent-- sounds like it may be blocked.

Did you even try to remove the trap under the sink to see if that was pluged?
After that you run a snake down the drain from under the sink where it goes in the wall.

It's almost never a good idea to use drain cleaners. Hard on the pipes, toxic caustic, and if your on a septic it can kill all the enzimes in the tank.
