gurgling island sink


All drains are vented through the walls to the roof. Islands pose a special problems because by definition there is no wall through which to run the drain vent.

There is a special method to vent these sinks and it sounds like yours either wasn't done, wasn't done correctly, or is somehow clogged up.

If you're handy, look under the sink and see if you can see a loop of drain pipe going up and then back down again. That's it.
