Unclogging a Sink Using Compressed Air

The bathroom sink has clogged and we needed a DIY solution rather than calling a plumber. We decided to create a tool to not only resolve the current problem but any future sink-related problems as well. Note that we've already tried plunging and chemicals and neither of them resolved the problem. Snaking the pipes is an effective solution but it can be a messy and physically challenging process.

We've used air pressure to resolve other clogging problem in this house and we used air to fix this problem too.
