Plunge Water Before Removing a Sink Trap

Plumbing

Before you remove a sink trap, give the drain a few plunges with a toilet plunger. You will push most of the water out of the trap, lessening the mess when you pull the trap.

Note:

If you have a double sink, be sure to plug the other drain to contain the air pressure. If the strainer isn't a screw-down style, you'll have to hold it down while you plunge the drain.
