A clean reputation for a dirty job
Are you hearing gurgling in your toilets? Or are you standing in 6” of water after your shower?
Call our pros at Oasis Plumbing to flush away your problems.
Did you know that most “flushable wipes” don’t dissolve and don’t break apart? This can cause a big issue as they get snagged on a bend or rough spot in a old pipe. Then as the next flush comes down the line it all starts to build up in that same spot. Before you know it, your toilets are telling funny stories as your in the shower. Moments later, the shower is backing up and everything goes from a clean shower to “oh no now I need to take a shower to clean off after this shower”.
Not to stress, our plumbing professionals are quick and on-time. Call us 305-703-8220 and we will have a technician from our team dispatched to your home quickly!
The above scenario is what we call a “Main Line Blockage”.
Whether you have a small bathroom sink clog, slow draining bathtub or your kitchen sink garbage disposal is jammed, our team is ready to help and get your drains flowing right away.
Here is a quick tip for fixing a kitchen sink garbage disposal.
Some brands are easier to fix then others and we will cover that here as well.
If your garbage disposal is not turning on, let’s go through some quick diagnostics to determine what the issue might be.
•Turn the power on, do you hear a humming noise from the motor?
If yes: then your disposal is jammed. (Skip to section below “un-jam a garbage disposal”)
If no noise then it either needs to be reset or it’s burned out. (Skip to section below “reset a garbage disposal”)
How to reset a garbage disposal:
On the bottom of the garbage disposal is a red reset button, press it and listen if you hear a humming noise. If you do, then continue to the section below for unjamming the garbage disposal.
How to un-jam a garbage disposal:
On the bottom of the disposal, directly in the center of the unit, there is a hexagon shaped hole. You will either use the tool that came with the garbage disposal or use the correct size Allen key tool.
Inset the tool/Allen key and spin in either direction, either back and forth or full circles until the tool turns freely.
If your unit does not have the hexagon hole on the bottom of the unit, then you will need a different tool as seen in the photos below. You can try using a long flat screw driver to turn the blades by hitting the end of the screw driver as it’s up against the blades.
Here are two types of gar age disposal tools that are most commonly used.
With the power OFF, look inside the garbage disposal to see if any objects are stuck inside. Carefully remove the item that caused the disposal to jam. We recommend unplugging the power cord first.

Easy bathroom sink drain cleaning:
If your bathroom sink clogs up within 5 seconds of turning on the water, then the clog is really close by. You can try using a small hair catching tool to remove the debris. Amazon.com and HomeDepot.com sell these great tools to quickly and easily fix the slow drain.
You just insert through the drain hole and pull back up, and all the hair catches onto the small teeth on the stick.
Is Draino and drain cleaning chemicals okay to use?
These harsh chemicals typically don’t help with real clogs. The chemicals can eat through hair and grease but only before it gets really bad. Once the drain is clogged, the chemicals won’t reach the clog and therefor won’t help.
At that point the chemicals are sitting in the pipe and can deteriorate the pipe as it’s sitting.
We advise against using these harsh chemicals as the cost for pipe repairs are much higher then having a professional do a routine drain cleaning of the pipes.
Call us.. We love your questions!
If your concerned about the condition of your pipes, we can perform a sewer video camera inspection to determine if there are any breaks or issues in the piping.
