Plumbing in the Home/rinsing chewing tobacco down sink


Patrick wrote at 2015-09-11 16:44:17
Hey everyone,

I am a dipper (not the long leaf kind of tobacco) and I just clogged my sink in my dorm room. I actually came across this article looking for ways to unclog my sink. Even if your husband chews snuff, it can still clog the sink! Granted, my sink is old and has a tiny gooseneck, but still. I'd advise him not to, because it gets bad if it gets clogged.

I can help with most questions about residential plumbing repairs. I am familiar with septic systems, and can answer some questions about water wells. I have no experience with commercial plumbing or codes.


I have been a sole-proprietor service plumber in two small towns north of Phoenix Arizona for 26 years.

I wrote a monthly column for the United Steelworkers of America local 1033 [Chicago] newsletter from 1978 to 1982. I wrote an article for "The Theosophist" in 1977 and have had dozens of letters to the editor in many newspapers, including a recent "My Turn" article in the Arizona Republic.

High school and three years of college. My step-father, having worked 40 years in the plumbing trade in Chicago, trained me for two years. The rest has been hands-on experience.
