Maybe it is too many hours without sleep. Or too many "fishing expeditions" to get jessie's and my long hair out of the drains (cause no matter how many hair catcher drain filters you use, well, you still get problems). Maybe it is being the daughter of a shop teacher and a woman who grew up working in a hardware store. Whatever it is, THIS IS COOL!!!!!!! http://www.amazon.com/PermaFLOW-PF-07001-Never-Clog-Drain/dp/B0021L9BXS/ It is a new pipe that you replace the P trap under the kitchen and bathroom sinks with. It is clear so you can SEE how clogged it is and you can SEE if you dropped Aunt Grizelda's favorite ring down the sink! It has a knob you turn so that a "wiper" will push anything building up down the line before it can cause a real problem. IF it gets clogged before you catch it and use the wiper, you can divert water through an upper chamber and still use the sink until you can snake out the gunk or take it apart and empty it. If you drop a ring you just go down the drain with a hook and pull up whatever it is. We live out in the country. We get plumbing problems. I am our primary plumber though husband often has to lend his strength to the problem. I want one or four of these for Christmas!!! Watch the video. It explains it better than I can. Just TOO COOL in my humble opinion!
