Discuss Bathroom and En suite Basins Backing Up in the Need help with PlumbersForums.net area at PlumbersForums.net

Hi all,

I would really appreciate some help and advice with the following issue.

The basins in both my bathroom and en suite have started to back up. I have very little knowledge of plumbing but I presume as they the basin are back- to-back they will both be connected onto the same pipework.

The property is 3.5 years old and we haven’t noticed any issues previously. The bath and toilets are draining fine.

I have tried some drain unblocking stuff and initially it seemed to resolve the issue but it quickly returned. At times it also sounds like there is air trapped somewhere sometimes bubbles from soap back up through the overflow.

I have noticed that the traps on both basins look to point upwards slightly, is this likely to be contributing to the problem? I have attached a picture.

Is there anything further I can try?

Thanks in advance.
