Stop sounds with foam

One way that you can get rid of the sound that your sink basin makes is a little trick with foam.  All you have to do is to just spray the space between two sink basins with expanding foam.  This will stop the vibrations and deaden the bangs and bongs.  The foam will harden and you can just cut away the extra crap with an Exacto knife.

Find pipes with a magnet

If you ever need to find a pipe and aren’t sure where to start just simply get a magnet and attach it to some fish tape. Then jam it in the drain line and you will feel when it attaches to the metal pipe.

Use water to flush the toilet

If you ever happen to back up the toilet.  It is very embarrassing and happens to everyone.  Don’t worry though cause there is an easy fix.  All you have to do is take a bucket of water and flush it that way.  You just take the bucket of water and pour it down the toilet.

Hire a plumber
