Plumbing issues


The drain all the way to the sewer in the street is all clear? That is what needs to be snaked...

Plumbing issues


If you put anything such as celery or anything else fibrous in the disposal? It may be partially plugged. To start with I would take a couple of pieces of citrus fruit (oranges and grapefruit) in run them through the disposal. The heavy outside skin will help clean out any residue in the disposal. If that doesn't help any that I would look at the pipes, but I think this is a good first step.
